Featuring Kevin Grevioux as your horrifying host, The Vault Keeper!
Three greedy siblings kill their uncle and then turn on each other; a real-life creature stalks the cast and crew shooting a silent horror film in 1920’s Los Angeles; a prisoner with a penchant for escaping finds an ingenious way out of jail, one which leaves him a little hot under the collar; and then there’s that graverobber in the old South who starts a war with the cemetery’s only living population… the rats… and as far as he’s concerned this battle is to the death!
When the history of horror comics was written, one name stood and still stands above the rest: EC Comics. With equal parts suspense, gore, camp, and revenge, the triumvirate of EC’s horror output laid the groundwork for what was to come from many of the genre’s greatest writers and directors. Now, Pocket Universe Productions presents EC’s The Vault of Horror, its stories adapted and presented in an audio-rich fully immersive setting complete with a full cast, scoring, and soundscapes. This ghastly grimoire adapts the first six issues of the classic horror series featuring werewolves, vampires, cutthroats, and numerous ne’er-do-wells!
Starring Kevin Grevioux (creator of the Underworld film franchise) as the Vault Keeper, special guests Phil Proctor of the Firesign Theatre and Denise Poirier (MTV’s Æon Flux), and a cast of over 50 actors this series is going to chill your spine and clam your palms! So put your headphones on and enter the Vault of Horror! It’s a real scream…
