If you’re a fan of blunt-force trauma, you could do no better than the launch of the 17th annual Scream Literary Festival, when horror-lit luminaries Tony Burgess (Pontypool) and Derek McCormack (The Haunted Hillbilly, The Show That Smells) lead an all-singing, all-dancing musical revue like an undead Donny & Marie.

Join their alter egos Count Cormula and, um, Tony Burgess as they lead Scream Mainstage Alumni Dani Couture (Good Meat), Carl Wilson (Lets Talk About Love) and others through a ghoulish extravaganza.

Will Cormula’s vampires prevail? Will Burgess’ zombies emerge victorious? Will the Scream alumni get to read their works amidst the singing and dancing? Will the Eye Magazine Poetry Contest winner prove an innocent onstage victim in all this madness?

Find out in Die Scream Die! The Musical Revue.
