Rifftrax Live Spooky Scary Halloween Extravaganza
The time is waaay overdue for a spooky scary funny "Rifftrax Live Halloween Extravaganza." This would be a mixed bag of Halloween themed shorts, cartoons, weird short films, vintage spook show trailers, and maybe some really terrible monster/science fiction trailers, all done in the format of an olden days type 'spook show.' These spook shows used to include the audience as part of the fun. Monsters running down the aisles, cheesy fake ghosts floating over the audience, etc. With time permitting you could even include a short really horrible old creaky horror movie that is down on it's little knees begging for the overdue riffing attention that It truly deserves. Special guest riffers are requested, yes please, as well as other spooky surprises.
Pull out all of the stops on this one boys, and riff the yell out of everyone.

If the Rifftrax Live Halloween Spookshow Spectacular is going to be done, it has to be very well planned.
In addition to doing this in a spookily decorated haunted theater, where monsters will interact with the audience. You should design an original Rifftrax spook show poster that could be postcard sized to hand out to the live theater audiences as souvenirs, and this also should be available as a standard size poster to purchase by Rifftrax fans everywhere.
You can find many poster design ideas, by looking at all of the many spookshow posters on the internet and Ebay.
To keep all of the many fright activities going smoothly a "Master of Scareremonies" should be used.
A great choice for this job would be an established horror host such as, Svengoolie, Elvira, or Count Gore de Vol.
Music and sound effects are requested to heighten the mood please?
Target Date: 10/31/2020
Rifftrax, If you want this to happen this year, you have about ten months from now (12-2019) to plan and put together this Live Spookshow Extravaganza.
The clock is ticking...tick...tick...tick...tick...tick.
As the wise old hillbilly Clem Kadiddlehopper once said as he drove his jalopy off a cliff to see how long it would take to reach the bottom: "LET'S GET ER DONE!"
The official working title should be: Rifftrax Live Spooktacular A-Go-Go

@IronCurtain -- Know what would make this better? If Elvira herself joined as a riffing guest!
This needs to be a thing! There was a nifty DVD a few years ago featuring the traveling Spook Show film "Monsters Crash the Pajama Party" (itself only about half an hour long and originally staged as noted above with "real" monsters in the theater) that featured a lot of this sort of stuff alongside the main picture. That would be the perfect model for this sort of show!
This is a great idea! It would be like one of those 80's Elvira movie featurettes, but with riffs!

I LOVE Halloween specials, and a RiffTrax one would make my Halloween season!

That would be a good idea to see, actually. We need more kitschy shorts that just beg to be riffed on!
