Halloween is certainly vulnerable to elements of kitsch and satire (a nervous laugh in the face of the deep psychic ooga-booga beneath the holiday's now-tamed dimensions? Ask the talking skeleton, or that slack-jawed zombie coming your way). Here Joshua Scrimshaw weds the spookiest of holidays to Ed Wood's benchmark of badness, Plan 9 from Outer Space. It's a sketch comedy brew that sends up Halloween as well as pop culture in general (which has stubbornly been doing its best to descend into parody on its own). Scrimshaw is joined by Shanan Wexler, Eric Webster, and whatever reanimated undead ghouls make their way to the BLB. Wear a costume and get in for 10 bucks (or, if you happen to be Hellboy, come as you are).
Thursdays, 7 & 10 p.m.; Fridays, 7 p.m. Starts: Oct. 30. Continues through Oct. 31, 2008
