Play Dead - Q&A with filmmakers Teller, Todd Robbins and Shade Rupe

Post-screening Q&A with filmmakers Teller, Todd Robbins and Shade Rupe.

"A slicked-up version of good old-fashioned Saturday-night spook show... Funny, furious and wholly enthralling" — The Wall Street Journal

In this film version of their off-Broadway show PLAY DEAD, famed silent magician Teller (of Penn & Teller) and brilliantly funny Coney Island showman Todd Robbins thrill a live audience with gory, ghastly spectacles based on real-life killers and psychic pranksters. Shot by "Dark Stars Rising" author Shade Rupe, the film is inspired by the American spook show, an underground entertainment which thrived from the 1930s to the 1970s. "A gleefully grotesque orgy of death and fright!" — The New York Times. "There are moments earlier in the show that make you wonder if something is going to reach out from the void in your theater and scare the bejeezus out of you! Three and a half stars!" — Film Threat.


I know this is on our regular Drinking Skeptically night, but this event is one that shouldn't be missed! Tickets will need to be purchased here.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
