Sometimes it feels like all of the horror has been sucked out of Halloween. Unending gore and violent things you can't un-see has replaced good old-fashioned fear and thoughts that the supernatural just might be real. Cirque du Horror attempts to bring back those frightful feelings by bringing back some classic staples of Halloween theater. The traveling musical showcase unfolds like a roaming gypsy show where spooky music and storytellers will attempt to chill your bones using the most frightening tool of all: your imagination. Storytellers unravel some truly spooky stories and poems that play upon your darkest fears while a gaggle of musicians lay down a perfect Halloween soundtrack that no MP3 of pre-recorded screams and sounds could ever top. Cirque du Horror will stop at the Texas Theatre (231 W. Jefferson Blvd., Dallas) at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31st. Tickets are available at TheTexasTheatre.com.
