What is now becoming one of my favorite Fringe traditions, after having a delightful order of cheese curds on the Fringe lawn, I gathered my things and headed to the Silver Venue for the latest installment of Aaron Malkin and Alastair Knowles’ James & Jamesy series. This year they are shining brightly in “James & Jamesy In The Dark.”

Secondly, one of the greatest joys in watching a James & Jamesy show is not knowing what to expect when you enter the venue. What I will provide you is the set up.

Fans of B-horror flicks need to flock to this show! Based on the 2009 campy horror movie of the same name, this story, much like your typical teen horror movie, revolves around five college students heading home for the holidays.

A simple premise, where an attractive cast of horror movie stereotypes – The Jock (Blake Heinricks), The Slut (Kayla Alvarez), The Hick (Fredy Ruiz), The Nerd (Matt Rothenberg) and The Virgin (Ale Martinez) get stranded for the evening on their road trip. The Nerd tells the group about the local legend he recently read about, where there was a conflict with the newly settled pilgrims and the local Native Americans and desecration of their sacred burial ground.
