Some details from the press release so you know what it is your in for and how to direct your buttocks to the correct locale.

Los Angeles fans of horror fiction will be treated to a rare opportunity as Thomas Jane and Damian Maffei present and star in the world premiere reading engagement of By Bizarre Hands and Suckerfish.  The two will be joined onstage by Kaitlin Doubleday (Hung, CSI, Brothers and Sisters) and newcomer Karina Elias at this free event, which takes place at The Steve Allen Theater on Saturday, November 12th at 8pm.

By Bizarre Hands is a one act play by award winning author Joe R. Lansdale.  The play tells the tale of a preacher going door to door, finding a little girl and her mother on Halloween, and their realization that the preacher isn’t exactly who he claims to be. By Bizarre Hands will be directed by renowned novelist/filmmaker Terrill Lee Lankford and produced by Kasey Lansdale.

Suckerfish, the classic dark existential play by W.T. Underwood, will be presented under Thomas Jane’s direction and Kasey Lansdale’s production. Suckerfish tells the tale of Hank, a Member of Society who merely wishes to be rescued from the grips of a city street corner and the epic homeless man, police officer, and dwindling grip on reality that stand in his way.

This is a staged reading, a unique opportunity to see the raw creation of this theatrical event in a relaxed environment, and a chance to be involved in something during its creative development.

With just 99 seats available, this will be an intimate gathering with a feedback session to follow.

Dr. Jimmy Terror, more commonly known as James P. Harris, has been “writing your eyes” shut since 2010 with his horror themed blog Dr. Terror’s Blog of Horrors (whose name is a play on words derived from the Amicus film, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors). In the early 2000’s he fronted the band The Vaudeville Vampires, a short-lived Horrorabilly band which saw the creation of a catalog of horror related songs before disbanding (with only one, six song demo ever being produced and distributed). He has had only one on screen appearance to date in the horror/suspense short, Ocean Parkway, as maniacal, gloved killer with a hair fetish. Having done some un-credited, behind the scenes work in some low budget genre pictures, he is currently working on his first foray into screenwriting with a demonic, retro gore entry that pays homage to Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento as well as other Italian masters of the genre.
