Tell us your secret ghost story. Tell us your fever dreams. Tell us why you fear your fellow human being. The New York Neo-Futurists' Fall 2010 horror show and fear experiment, (un)afraid, celebrates and examines the concept, causes and consequences of fear, both in our society and in ourselves. Attempting to summon a different guest spirit each performance, from such deceased masters of horror as Edgar Allen Poe, HP Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, M.R, and James. The New York Neo-Futurists call upon the forces of chance and change to present a different show every night, putting expectations on shaky ground and melding our mythical fear of what goes bump in the night with the terror of simply living. Combining elements of personal ghost story, video assault, monster-mash-mayhem, and audience-interactive freak-out, Neo-Futurists Jill Beckman, Cara Francis, Daniel McCoy & Ricardo Gamboa will usher you beyond the very edge of their and your, most startling, gruesome, and diabolical fears. Welcome to our nightmare.
