Directed by Tom DeTrinis and Jessica Hanna, RAVENSWOOD MANOR is replete with the overdone, melodramatic, and exaggerated moments called for in a show trying to create an entertaining and campy horror story. At the same time, much of the humor appears to depend upon sexualized sight jokes and pre-adolescent laughs. For individuals who enjoy a sexy, sometimes crude “Three Stooges,” RAVENSWOOD may be right up their alley.

Directors Tom De Trinis and Jessica Hanna keep the action fast and funny, there is a very nice title sequence at the top of the show when we see the principal players in tableaux as projections tell us who we’re looking at, this sets the tone perfectly.

...I hope it gets the cult following it deserves.

Based on what I’ve seen, “Ravenswood Manor” is a sharply written and well-acted exemplar of the horror-comedy genre. The success begins with Sayre, whose lines are as poignant or as subtle as they need to be, the storytelling seamless when it matters most. He has constructed an intricate plot that is absurd, hilarious and mysterious, and he has crafted characters that fit perfectly into the camp, each amusingly over the top and foundationally ridiculous...

For a show full of those sharp and witty moments, head to “Ravenswood Manor.”
