LOL

The thing is, besides being an utter toad of a human being, Riedel usually has the least knowledge of the topic in the room. He doesn't usually understand the content or approach of a show, and is always completely and unfailingly socially ignorant, which makes it really infuriating when Susan can't get a word in edgewise. A definitive mansplainer; it's always painful when he has female guests. I watch the show sporadically when I really want to see a guest, because it's the only theatre talkshow we have, but it would be so much better without this hateful clown in a dadcoat.

Moat of those are not horror.  Suspenseful or even frightening omission nor the same as horror.

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Dance of the Vampires was horrifically bad.

^ Has the Phantom ever been a vampire in any of his musical adaptations?

There have been a few different Frankenstein musicals. Same with Night of the Living Dead musicals. The one I saw off-off-Broadway forever ago included a scene where George W. Bush got gored to death on a golf course because of course he did.

 

There are also two different Poe musicals called Nevermore. Both are small, chamber musicals. One is Poe and four women representing his muses; the other is a steampunk adaptation.

 

Shockheaded Peter was horror.

 

There's a solid little Sleepy Hollow musical by Janet Yates Vogt worth looking at.

 

Annabelle Broom is a delightful, creepy musical for kids. 

 

Little Shop of Horrors.

 

If you extend your range to Gothic musicals, as well, then you can toss in Jane Eyre, The Visit, and A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder.

I have all the cd's mentioned in my post. I have a Sleepy Hollow one but do not know if it is the one mentioned above..

 

I saw a little gem years ago at the WPA (I believe) called Buzzsaw Berkley- a cross between a slasher movie & an Judy & Mickey let's put on a show musical.

I've always been curious about that--it was one of the first things Michael J LaChiusa did music and lyrics for with Doug Wright before he started to make a name for himself thanks to writing Quills and had Peter Bartlett and Vicki Lewis.  Here's NYT's review http://www.nytimes.com/1989/08/21/theater/review-theater-a-serial-killer-with-a-grudge-against-performers.html

Add ThanksKilling the Muscial to the list. Based off of the cult film of the same name.

It had it's world premiere in Seattle, a showcase in NY last spring and it's southeast premiere at Dad's Garage this fall.

The Cast Recording Was just released on iTunes and it's pretty darn funny.
