Troma founders Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz continue to push forward into the realm of the bizarre, surreal, and campy with the 1996 feature film, Macabre Pair of Shorts,a self-proclaimed "comedy of terrors" written and directed by Scott Mabbutt. Done in the mold of such horror comedy classics as Creepshow and Tales from the Darkside: the Movie, Macabre spoofs traditional horror conventions while delivering a hair-raising fright-fest. The premise relays the events that unfold one Halloween night when a couple of adventurous cinephiles discover an exceedingly strange reel of film at a motion picture equipment facility. Threading it up on the projector, they suddenly unleash a wacky, B-movie style parade of horrors -- from crazed monsters to insatiable blood-sucking female vampires.
