Re-enactment of Quentin Tarantino style dialog and themes but improvised on an audience suggested theme.

The BATS knocked it out of the theatre! They hit the pop culture references, the smoke-filled dialogue, copious surprising close-range mayhem, taunting and volatile female/male characters in a tight compelling story. It was Chainsaw Bananas!

Outside of the jokes on witnesses it was pretty funny. Don't like seeing any religion portrayed in a bad light.

Description

A completely improvised live “film” inspired by the movies of Quentin Tarantino, created on the spot with audience suggestions.

The inglorious BATS-ters stage a freakin’ crime drama and take no prisoners!
