BloodSquad

All the Horror.
Four times the Comedy.

Since 2007 Blood Squad has been thrilling and chilling audiences around the world (that means the US & Canada so far) with a blend of comedy and horror.

Utilizing a deep knowledge of and genuine love for the classic slasher flick, over the years the ongoing mission of Blood Squad has grown to include improvising various sub-genres of horror films based on a title given by the audience. The concept is simple: a completely improvised story that is high-energy with descriptive edits and asides to create a cinematic feel on stage. No blood, no props, no costumes, no mercy.

Viewer discretion is always strongly advised.

Dead Until Twilight

Dead Until Twilight

Just in time for Halloween—murder, mayhem and nasty blood-lust, vampire style. In the tradition of the new american classics Twilight & Dead Until Dark (the beloved novels that inspired True Blood), which was inspired by the old classics Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Interview with the Vampire, Blood Squad brings you the modern day vampire romance/horror thriller.

Camp Death

Camp Death

It’s summer time, and all the kids are heading back to camp, even though that horrible, gruesome thing happened not-so-long-ago (or maybe it was?). Swimming, hiking, and stealing kisses in the night are all on the camp schedule… but so is a full week of DEATH!

Slay Bells

Slay Bells

Tis the season for slaughter! For the holidays Blood Squad presents a show in the style of Christmas horror inspired by such classics as the original Black Christmas, Silent Night, Deadly Night and Gremlins. Join us for a one-night only show and holiday party featuring music, comedy and a yule-tide improvised slasher movie.

Hell Child

Hell Child

Blood Squad presents a completely improvised show in the style of scary-possessed-child horror. He’s blonde, blue-eyed and he has dimples. He plays well with his friends, is obedient to his parents and always cleans up his room. He’s sweet, he’s adorable, he’s perfect…and last week he drowned the babysitter in the toilet.

Nightmare on 34th Street

Nightmare on 34th Street

T’was the Night Before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring—except the slightly disoriented-looking guy in overalls with a giant knife crawling out of the fireplace.

Killer Prom at Murder High

Killer Prom at Murder High

It'€™s prom! Where is everyone? Why is the gym so dark? Why are the doors chained? WHO’S HEAD IS THAT IN THE PUNCHBOWL!?!?
