Chicago-based Lowcarbcomedy has just released a music video for the band Common Shiner‘s song “Social Mediasochist”, an amazing mash-up of teen romance movie tropes and horror icon characters attending Wes Craven’s Slasher High School. It’s impossible to keep up with all the references in just one viewing – the attention to detail in the background is amazing (SO many great horror references and in-jokes) and the story that unfolds is… well, we’ll shut up and let it speak for itself:Leave a Comment Go to Post...

STRANGELOOP THEATRE AND CHEMICALLY IMBALANCED COMEDY BRING THE CULT HORROR COMIC BOOK SERIES HACK/ SLASH TO THE STAGE FOR HALLOWEEN
Enter a world filled with things so evil and crazy that when you shoot them, they stand up to get shot all over again
CHICAGO – This fall Strangeloop Theatre, in a co-production with Chemically Imbalanced Comedy (C.I.C.), is bringing the horror comedy series Hack/Slash by Chicago artist and writer Tim Seeley from the 2D comic book page to a 3D Chicago stage.
“This production will appeal to hardcore fans of the comic book series, while still being accessible to theatre-goers coming in with little to no knowledge of Hack/Slash or Tim Seeley,” said Brad Gunter, Hack/Slash director and co-artistic director of Strangeloop Theatre. “It promises to be a bloody good time — pun totally intended — for everyone who joins us.”
Hack/Slash is the story of horror victim survivor Cassie Hack who, together with her disfigured sidekick Vlad, travels the country (and sometimes the underworld) fighting evil slashers who refuse to just lay down and die even after being burned, impaled and shot 20 times. The original comic book series, on which this production is based, ended its run in May of 2013. The series was recently relaunched by Image Comics as Hack/Slash: Son of Samhain and is co-written by Seeley’s brother Steve Seeley and Michael Moreci.
Seeley is best known as co-creator of Hack/Slash and Revival, and for his work on G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, New Exiles and G.I. Joe vs. Transformers. He also currently co-writes the weekly series Batman: Eternal for DC Comics.
This is the second time Hack/Slash has sliced its way onto the Chicago stage. The first production, which featured a different script, was produced by New Millennium Theatre Company in 2005. Both productions were done in conjunction with creator Tim Seeley.”It’s great to see Hack/Slash brought to life again,” Seeley said. “I’m excited for the fans to see it and to have it introduced to a new audience.”
For the Strangeloop/C.I.C. version, Seeley’s original comic book scripts were used as a basis for dialogue and action. This production pulls from several storylines giving fans and newcomers alike a glimpse into Cassie’s history, the mayhem that made her what she is and, of course, plenty of slashers.
The cast of Hack/Slash is: Jean Burr as Cassie Hack; Tim Lee as Vlad; Miona Lee as Emily Cristy and Erika Napoletano, Christopher Prchal, Pete Navi, Richard John McLain, John Rohr, Melissa Nelson, Karen DuVall and Renee Lynn Jackson as the ensemble.
Just in time for the Halloween season, Hack/Slash opens Friday, September 12, and runs through Saturday, November 1, on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. Please note, there is no performance on Friday, September 19. The performances will be held at Chemically Imbalanced Theatre (1422 W. Irving Park Road, Chicago, IL 60613). Tickets are $15 and will be available in advance through Brown Paper Tickets or at the door.Leave a Comment Go to Post...
