by Kevin Armento
Unfolding as a scary story within a movie within a play, Questhaven is a full-scale excavation of, and homage to, the horror movie genre. When a group of theatermakers try to make a play based on an old horror screenplay the playwright found at a writers retreat, things begin happening in the rehearsal room. Inexplicable things. As their first performance nears, they'll have to dig up a past that doesn't want to be dug up...before they're all dead.
