After years hiding in the shadows, the ancient ghosts of an old Pittsburgh theater make their presence known once again. When theater employees and students start dropping like flies # and in gruesome fashion - a bumbling detective and two incompetent local cops start a hilariously spooky and disgusting search for the truth. Five students may have what it takes to find the answer... but will they survive the search? Will they be terrified? Will girls run around in their underwear?... Yes. Discover the secrets of the PlayHouse. Written by Hunter F. Roberts <hunter@yetibrothers.com>

Did You Know?


Since the film was based on the still-standing Pittsburgh Playhouse, it was selected as the original Theater location for the project. At the last minute scheduling problems forced them elsewhere, and thusly all the theater interiors in "Playhouse" were shot at the Kelly-Strayhorn Theater of Pittsburgh instead. See more »

Funny, Scary, Moving. all are words that describe this film's brilliance. Nikitas Menotiades is the next George Clooney. I mean this guy just oozes with talent. A talent rarely seen these days even among the greatest actors. There were times when this movie could have picked up the pace a little better, but when the blood came it was a lot of blood, and when the laughs came they were jubilant. A must see if this is ever released on video. This very much a throwback to Evil Dead 2. It incorporates the horror and the comedy perfectly. The end of this movie, too, brought me to tears. Honestly, it was so beautiful. Very remeniscient of a combo of Gordy and Angus.
