Bone Up on Your Horror Movie Research

In a lot of ways, this play is both an earnest participant in the horror genre, as well as a self-conscious homage. The best iteration of this same kind of double-vision in Hollywood is the tongue-in-cheek SCREAM franchise. The original is still a classic. It’s scary, and funny, it winks at itself while it plays you for the fool you are. It’s worth a watch. You can stream it on Netflix, here.
