From Clark Collis at Entertainment Weekly:

Director Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix company has announced that season 2 of the horror-themed Tales from Beyond the Pale audio play series will be released on the suitably spooky date of Friday, Sept. 13. The second batch of terror tales was recorded live in New York and features actors Sean Young, Vincent D’Onofrio, James LeGros (Living in Oblivion, Girls), and Kate Lyn Sheil (Sun Don’t Shine), among others. “Having a season of tales already behind us, we thought it would be a fun challenge to pull back the curtain on our process and perform them live,” said filmmaker and Tales cocreator Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead) in a statement.

The second season of Tales from Beyond the Pale includes stories written by Fessenden (The Last Winter, Beneath), McQuaid, novelist Kim Newman, and Simon Barrett (V/H/S, A Horrible Way to Die). The latter penned the new, home invasion horror film You’re Next, which includes appearances from both Fessenden and Sheil and is released today. The second batch of plays will be available to buy at the Tales online store.

Inspired by the classic radio shows of Alfred Hitchcock, Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, and Orson Welles, each TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE is a half hour downloadable audio program chillingly brought to life by the extraordinary vocal talents of Sean Young, Vincent D’Onofrio, Mark Margolis, James LeGros, Michael Cerveris, Kate Lyn Sheil, and Jonny Orsini, to name just a few.

Hosted by Glass Eye Pix CEO Larry Fessenden, each thirty-minute episode is written and directed by one of today’s horror auteurs including Joe Maggio (BITTER FEAST), Clay McLeod Chapman (HENLEY), Jeff Buhler (THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN), Ashley Thorpe (THE DEMON HUNTSMAN), Kim Newman (ANNO DRACULA), Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD), Simon Barrett (YOU’RE NEXT), and Larry Fessenden (BENEATH).

Award-winning artist “Ghoulish” Gary Pullin returns to illustrate the lavish TALES posters, joined this season with works by Brahm Revel, Ashley Thorpe and Trevor Denham.

Conceived during a fog-drenched car ride by Fessenden and frequent collaborator Glenn McQuaid (I SELL THE DEAD, V/H/S), TALES continues the mission at Glass Eye Pix to celebrate and elevate individual voices in the arts and to bring a vast palette of moods that comprise the horror story to fans everywhere.

Says Fessenden: “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE is such a consistently thrilling project to be part of, because we are working in a format that brings both nostalgia and innovation to all the artists involved. On the one hand, everyone has some affectionate recollection of the audio stories they heard as a kid, and on the other hand we are all pushing the limits of the format in a new and contemporary direction. It’s a blast, and a welcome break from visual storytelling.”

McQuaid adds: “Having a season of TALES already behind us, we thought it would be a fun challenge to pull back the curtain on our process and perform them live. Beyond the fact that it got us out of a comfort zone, I think the live setting helped us hone in on the heart of the project. I’m delighted with what we’ve accomplished, this is some of our best work.”

Season two of TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE will be available for purchase/download at the TALES online store beginning Friday, September 13th for $2.99 per TALE.

GLASS EYE PIX, in association with FEAR-MONGERS
proudly presents
TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE live at DIXON PLACE

 

Glass Eye Pix, the fiercely independent film company behind STAKE LAND, THE INNKEEPERS and I SELL THE DEAD, in association with Clay McLeod Chapman’s FEAR-MONGERS: FIRESIDE CHATS ABOUT HORROR FILMS, is taking its successful audio dramas TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE out of the studio and onto the stage.

A new twist on the vintage radio shows of yesteryear, Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid’s TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE has already thrilled fans of the macabre with it’s first season of creepy dramas released last year. Now they are upping the ante and recording 8 original audio shows before a live audience.

Journey beyond the pale the first four Tuesdays in October as Fessenden and Co. present a double-bill of original genre stories performed by an exciting cast of special guests, and featuring live music, live foley, and live sound effects by a team of audio artisans. A feast for eyes and ears.

Each performance will be recorded and made available online to fans who can’t attend the live events. Plans to produce new studio-based Tales are also underway; the live and studio recordings will be collected and made available as Season 2 of Tales from Beyond the Pale. Season 1 is already available at Amazon, Audible, and iTunes and features such genre luminaries as Ron Perlman, Angus Scrimm, Vincent D’Onofrio and Michael Cerveris; Season 2 promises to keep up the tradition of esteemed voice talent, but who will show up to perform, for now, remains a closely guarded secret.
