Museum Of Horror (RSH Productions)

By | Published on Monday 22 August 2011

For a late-night showing, I was expecting the ‘Museum Of Horror’ to be either horrifying or hilarious. It turned out to be more like family entertainment. I knew what was going to happen at every turn, and there wasn’t enough humour to make up for such predictability. Spoofs are meant to be filled with clichés, but, for an adult audience, the ‘Museum of Horror’ doesn’t transcend them. However, the acting was some of the best I’ve seen at the Fring so far, with four young people and one creepy bald man, but they are obviously capable of much more artistry. At times there were moments of comedy and brilliant poignancy, but the humour fails to live up to its potential.

theSpaces On The Mile, 5 – 27 Aug (not 7, 14, 21), 10.05pm – 11.00pm, £4.00 – £8.00, fpp282.
