Third Annual Horrific Puppet Affair

Boise gets its socks scared off by... socks

by

In the 1989 horror film Puppet Master, puppets imbued with the souls of victims of Nazi persecution attack a group of psychics. By 1989 standards, it's a pretty grizzly movie, but what makes it upsetting--what makes anything involving puppets upsetting--is the prospect of them breaking from their strings.

It's time to cut loose from your fear of effigies for the third annual Horrific Puppet Affair, brought to you by HomeGrown Theatre. Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 24-25 and Oct. 29-Nov. 1, swing by Woodland Empire Ale Craft, pony up $5 and get terrified by six short tales, including from local writers Heidi Kraay, Dakotah Brown, Erin Chancer, Chad Ethan Shohet, Jamie Nebeker, Jon E. Waters and Declan Kempe.
