To Russia with Chills
Today “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” will play early evening at two festivals, not streaming via the internet but in front of physically assembled live audiences: the Russian International Horror Film Festival in Moscow, and the New York Long Island International Film Festival.
Time zones being what they are, the Moscow screening will actually take place 8 or 9 hours before the Long Island screening, but I will still not be able to attend both. I will be in Lindenhurst, Long Island, doing a live socially distanced Q&A.
If not for Covid, I would have been there in Moscow in person in March. But we-all-know-what interfered, and the Russian Horror festival was postponed to October, and we Americans are finding it real hard to travel to most places these days…
So, in stead of me the audience in Moscow will get to watch a little intro video the festival director asked me to send them.
Here it is:
It’s mostly a standard introduction clip, until it veers into something … different.
A bit subtler than what I did for the Rock Horror folks in Rio, perhaps, but hopefully still as enjoyable.
