Day 2 of the Spooky Movie International Film Festival offered a unique experience as the first full length feature that night came in the form of a filmed live theatre performance.  What film do I speak of? PLAY DEAD, of course!  Co-Directed by famed silent magician Teller and Shade Rupe, the film is inspired by the American spook show, an underground form of entertainment that occurred between 1930s and 1970s.  In the film, Coney Island showman Todd Robbins thrills a live audience with gory, ghastly spectacles based on real-life killers and psychic pranksters.  Following an entertaining Q & A, that including a impressive magic act from Teller, Reel Film News  took the opportunity to pick the brains of Teller and Shade Rupe concerning the evolution of the off-Broadway show (of the same name) to the big screen, the history of spook shows, and their respective future projects.  Check it out!
