As part of “Dark Duets,” mojo storyteller Joe R Lansdale paired up with his daughter, Kasey Lansdale, to pen this tale of a monster whose power is through the eyes.
Quick witted but unlucky in love, Jana is dragged by her friend Erin to attend an ‘eye gazing party,’ a new age phenomenon run by a couple of hucksters on the far edge of a small Texas town. Jana’s skepticism turns to confusion when Erin – and all the girls at the party – are entranced by an unremarkable man “Thirteen.”
Featuring a special performance and selections of music by Kasey Lansdale.
Based on the short story, “Blind Love” by Joe R Lansdale and Kasey Lansdale, originally published in the collection “Dark Duets” edited by Christopher Golden. Adapted for audio by Fred Greenhalgh. Produced by Fred Greenhalgh and William Dufris. Directed by William Dufris.
