2012, R.I.P., 75 min, USA, Dir: Shade Rupe, Teller

A film of the maniacal off-Broadway production created by magicians Todd Robbins and Teller, PLAY DEAD features side-show trickery and lurid storytelling that is by turns creepy and hilarious. In a dark theater before a live audience, the white-suited Robbins regales the crowd with tales of true crimes and weird occurrences while murder, spiritual contact and surgical procedure take place on stage (and sometimes spill over into the front rows).
