Move over THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, there’s a new cult movie musical in town, and this one puts gore galore slashers centre stage. If you loved director Jerome Sable’s singalonga short THE LEGEND OF BEAVER DAM, you’ll adore this hilarious combo of FRIDAY THE 13th and ‘Glee’ as Kylie Swanson (Minnie Driver) is brutally murdered after her star-making performance in the Broadway-bound musical ‘The Haunting of the Opera’. Ten years later, her producer Roger McCall (Meat Loaf) is running a musical theatre summer camp where Kylie's twins, Camilla and Buddy help out. When Roger decides to revive ‘The Haunting of the Opera’ kabuki style for the end of term entertainment, Camilla wants her mother’s cursed role. But the masked Opera Ghost returns with rehearsals ready to break a leg and strike down the cast and its leading lady again. Funny, bloody and graced with some terrific original songs.
Director: Jerome Sable. Cast: Minnie Driver, Meat Loaf, Allie MacDonald, Douglas Smith, Kent Nolan. Canada 2014. 89 mins.
