Okay, now that I’ve got that out of the way, remember that you can check out information about the event tonight right here, and that tickets are still available online.

If you haven’t already, check out the The CHUD Show below, where we featured the three riffers themselves, Mike, Kevin, and Bill.
It was only last month that CHUD teamed up with Fathom Events and Warner Bros to bring you the one-night-only re-release of William Friedkin’s The Exorcist,
which included a special behind-the-scenes presentation (and our own
little CHUD commercial that you can see below). The digital prints (not
satellite-fed streams, but full-resolution hard-drive prints played
through the main projectors) were stunningly gorgeous, with remarkable
sound- the evening was a resounding success. We’re happy to once again
partner with Fathom, this time to bring you an event of a slightly
guys over at RiffTrax.com have spent the last four years building
serious momentum for their downloadable comedic audio commentaries. The
crew of riffers (though the roster often changes and accommodates
special guests) is made up of Mystery Science Theater 3000
alumni Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett, and their
efforts represent a graceful transition from one medium to another.
They’ve proven that a good concept can adapt to the changing world.
While independent MP3 distribution has given the crew the ability to
riff on any movie they want, nothing ever quite beats a good ole
fashioned classic horror film riffing, and with that in mind they’ve
been teaming up with Fathom Events for RiffTrax Live! Taking on classic cheese-fests like Plan 9 From Outer Space and Reefer Madness, these live riffing events have found great success in theaters across the nation.
We here at CHUD are happy to bring you their next RiffTrax Live! event, which takes place at the end of the month and celebrates the classic House on Haunted Hill…
NCM Fathom and the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 invite you to a haunted house party like none you’ve ever experienced. RiffTrax own Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett will be back for an evening of hilarious riffing on the horror classic House on Haunted Hill!
On Thursday, October 28, the guys treat this Vincent Price classic to
their signature brand of rapid-fire comedy. Comedian Paul F. Tompkins
will join the guys as a guest riffer on a classic, never-before-seen
theater audiences will receive FREE digital goodies after the event. A
