"My hat is off Nosedive for coming to King with respect, energy, and most importantly, a vicious hunger for the jugular... King is one of the most important, imaginative, and impactful authors of the 20th century, and it's always great to see his tales in capable, intelligent, and bloodthirsty hands." —

"Full of splattering blood, dangerous psychos and true suspense laced with good humor, the production succeeds as much for being unique as for its timely seasonal run. There are all too few thrillers in the American theatre and it is a devilish delight to have one for October." —

"The Blood Brothers Present . . . The Master of Horrordelivers what it promises - humor, fear, and a healthy (or unhealthy, depending on your point of view) dose of gore. And when was the last time you saw a group of actors who could be so good at being so evil?"

"Jessi Gotta takes the stage in a one-woman tour-de-force... She's wonderfully insane... The new stage adaptations get it right by focusing on the characters and engaging talented actors to bring them to life. The adapters and writers and actors here clearly care about what they're doing. It's a fun evening, if you like a little gore and a few chills for your Hallowe'en."
