?”Nailed it!” Out brother site, ComingSoon.net, landed an exclusive clip from Stage Fright, the horror-comedy that also poses as a musical which is out on VOD today. You can read our review of the film via this link.

Review: Singing Some Praise for the Slasher-Musical Stage Fright

Horror and the jovial, spontaneous realm of musicals don’t collide often on the screen, but when they do, the outcome yields mostly positive and extreme reactions. The Rocky Horror Picture Show became a cult classic, Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s “Once More With Feeling” transcended expectations and is considered one of the best episodes to come out of that series, and, more recent efforts like Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Devil’s Carnival have curiously carved out a significant Rocky Horror-like fanbase. Whatever your personal thoughts are on those offerings, you have to commend them for fully embracing the radical, unlikely merging of genres. They find their voice, their message and they really just go for it.

Stage Fright similarly goes for it enthusiastically and with bloody reverence for the slasher genre. That’s right, this is a slasher musical that, in equal measures, goes for the laughs and goes for the throat. And it does it very well. So well, it amused me quite a bit (obvioulsy)…and I’m a real curmudgeon when it comes to musicals.
