Alabama Monster

Trey Tatum—Creative Manitoba

[Editor’s Note” This is a shared review with A Confederate Widow in Hell] Both family horror stories, both about malevolent legacies, both by men from the American south, both remarkable in their own way. And they couldn’t be more different from each other. Confederate Widow is an impressively staged and costumed ghost story that unexpectedly makes uncomfortable links between the slave-powered prosperity of the old south and today’s global economic structure. Alabama Monster is stripped down thrilling and moving storytelling – with pitch perfect pace and emotional escalation – the family story is intertwined with the monster tale as an allegory for terrifying inheritances. Both very well worth seeing.

This storytelling show parallels the creeping horror of monster stories, to the inherited horror of intergenerational mental illness. Powerful and hypnotic in intensity, the raw emotion from the constant battles in the sleepy south of Alabama are more than enough to move you more than any campfire horror story could hope to do.
