New TALES Coming Soon…

July 8, 2015

This year’s Fantasia International Film Festival—Montreal’s amazing film fest that runs from July 14th to August 4th, 2015—includes a live TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE!

From the press release:

Monday July 27, 10PM at Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club
Fantasia is thrilled to be presenting the first-ever Canadian presentation of indie genre legends Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid’s adored TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE radio drama.
Touting itself as “Radio plays for the digital age”, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE has become the stuff of horror legend in the five years since its inception. Prepare yourself for a trip back in time with live radio drama, complete with musical accompaniment, on-stage foley work, and extensive sound design – all created before your very eyes (and ears)!
With performances across the United States, popular CD sets, a Communicator Award of Excellence, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE shows are notoriously entertaining, imaginative, frightening… and FUN.
And now, it’s coming for Montreal.
Fantasia is immensely proud to present the first-ever TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE live show on Canadian soil.
Taking its inspiration from the vintage radio shows of Hitchcock and Welles, TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE is the creation of acclaimed independent filmmakers Larry Fessenden (HABIT, THE LAST WINTER) and Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD, V/H/S). Through them, their extensive Glass Eye Pix production team, and indie film allies, they’ve produced a unique series of “radio play” podcasts and theatrical storytelling happenings that have mesmerized and amazed audiences lucky enough to have the experience.
For this special Canadian debut, the Glass Eye Pix team are putting together a night that will surely go down in festival history, featuring all new Tales by McQuaid, Fessenden, and series newcomer Douglas Buck (SISTERS, THE THEATRE BIZARRE), starring a special secret cast to be revealed soon!

Shock Exclusive!: Art, First Word on This Year’s TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE: THE STANLEY EDITION

From Samuel Zimmerman at

A budding tradition and must-see at the annual Stanley Film Festival in Estes Park, CO is Tales From Beyond the Pale Live, an in-flesh, festival-tailored iteration of the Larry Fessenden & Glenn McQuaid-produced horror audio dramas. One of the festival’s more experiential events, Tales From Beyond the Pale Live: The Stanley Edition is written exclusively for the Stanley and features performers in person, as well as the magic of live foley, sound and music. It’s a treat that both reveals the form and yet draws you in even further.

At the 2015 Stanley Film Festival, taking place April 30-May 3 at the Stanley Hotel, Tales From Beyond the Pale Live is entitled The Stanley Edition: Parlor Tricks. Taking place Friday, May 1st at 7 p.m. sharp at The Historic Park Theatre, Parlor Tricks is comprised of two tales: Cold Reading, written by Glenn McQuaid & newcomer to Tales, April Snellings (writer and editor at Rue Morgue Magazine and co-editor of the book Horror Movie Heroes); and No Signal by Larry Fessenden.

The show will feature the voice talents of Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, We Are Still Here) and Leon Vitali (Barry Lyndon, Terror of Frankenstein) as well as Larry Fessenden (We Are Still Here, Body, Habit). The rest of the cast will be filled by very special guests.

“This will be my third year at Stanley, second with Tales. It’s a very special fest, feels like… ‘we’ve always been there’”, says Fessenden.

“We’re there to scare,” adds McQuaid

Also joining the Tales crew is Glass Eye Pix regular Graham Reznick (director of I Can See You, The Viewer) on Sound Design and Music, as well as Tales stalwarts Chris Skotchdopole and Tessa Price on foley, and Lee Nussbaum on tech. Jenn Wexler produces with the Pale Men. Rebekah Brown associate produces.
