Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


At the end of a frightening year, we got out with a bang — and lots of laughs — while discussing “Scare Me” with Anna Mavromati of the Shine on Collective!


Breaking the fourth wall and beyond in this episode with special guest Anna Mavromati of the L.A. based immersive theatre company, the Shine on Collective! Anna — writer, horror movie aficionado, professor, and all-around cool cat — chose the 2020 American horror comedy film SCARE ME written, directed, and produced by Josh Ruben and streaming for your viewing pleasure now on Shudder. (We talk about Shudder so much; sponsor us, you cowards!).

Join us for a discussion that touches on transcending the boundaries of traditional theatre and storytelling in a pandemic, then veers off into improv actors doing cocaine in an isolated cabin, what it takes to be a writer, and the undeniable acting prowess of Chris Redd. We think Stephen King would be all over this shit.

Please check out the Shine On Collective, an award-winning Los Angeles-based theater organization that produces unusual and original performance installations! You can find out more about their latest experience Welcome Home, now shipping across the United States, at their website. We highly recommend it.
