An Evening of Grand Guignol Horror

"We've done all we can – and so has nature, I'm afraid."

"Just to see my blood flowing, doctor, you have no idea what it's like."

In the depths of a sanitarium, a horribly disfigured man totters between forgiveness and revenge. In a small hospital operating room, a stranger asks the surgeon for a bloody favor. In a small New York theatre, two eerie siblings lead their captive audience through a funhouse of madness, chills and blood.

"The Blood Brothers," a new horror-centered division of Nosedive Productions, presents an evening of Grand Guignol Horror. Through two one-act plays and three original vignettes, The Blood Brothers present a rare peek into a style of theater that proliferated in the early-1900's and was eventually assimilated in the late-1970's and 1980's into the "splatter" genre of horror films. Blending suspense, stage magic, eroticism and farce, Grand Guignol was a powerful theatrical entertainment drawing an audience from every echelon of Parisian society – anyone in search of a sexy, scary thrill.

The Blood Brothers Present: An Evening of Grand Guignol Horror features graphic violence and strong sexual situations and is recommended for adults only.

The Blood Brothers Present will be performed at the 78th Street Theatre Lab (236 West 78th St. at Broadway) October 19-21, 26-28 (Thursday through Saturday). All shows are at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15. Subway: 1 to 79th Street; A to 81st Street; or 1 2 or 3 to 72nd Street. For tickets call 212-352-3101 or visit
