Blood Squad is veteran Seattle improvisers Brandon Felker, Elicia Wickstead, Jon Axell & Molly Arkin. The ongoing mission of BS is improvising various sub-genres of horror films based on a title given by the audience.
Excerpt from a review of our show “Killer Prom at Murder High” in The Stranger by Cienna Madrid:
“The performances are simple: no intermissions, costumes, or props besides three folding chairs. Blood Squad functions without blood. Everything is left to the audience’s (vivid, sometimes drunk) imagination. Special effects are pantomimed and/or narrated as quick asides: “She tucked her disemboweled, uh, bowels back into a marsupial-like skin pouch…” A vampire father-son battle?the climax of the show is set on the vertical facade of the high school and executed through aggressive crab scuttling and hissing on the floor (it works better than I could possibly describe). Someone loses a face. A teenager wails. The audience laughs. The man to my right remarks that Blood Squad has captured the naked essence of teen slasher flicks, even without the gore.
“What is that?” I ask. He says: “It’s fun watching teenagers die.”
