“Part classic storytelling, part haunted house, Wicked Lit Theatre Festival is an unique theatrical/literary experience that places the audience in the middle of the story – allowing them the feel the horror first-hand.” – Examiner.com

“Of course, great, compelling art and theater and music can transcend a ho-hum venue, but a spectacular setting can raise the spirit of what is being presented on stage…The perfect combo, of course, is great art and great setting. Wicked Lit… possesses just that.” – NBC Locals – Los Angeles

“Old graveyards are eerie enough in the daylight, but this Halloween season, Altadena’s Mountain View Mortuary & Cemetery is ratcheting up the fear factor with a vengeful premature burial, a spectral beast from the edge of time and a nest of ghostly goblins.” – Brand X
