Late Night Mixtape

 

Oddballs, rascals, scoundrels–call the merry band of troublemakers behind this year’s Late Night Mixtape what you will, but there’s no denying the unbridled manic energy they bring to their work. If you’re in the market for a bit of mischief and mayhem on your Friday night–for a cranium-bursting infomercial supercut, a bloodsucking home invasion story, or a bit of gruesome graveside gratification–knock back whatever you’re drinking and plop yourself into that plush theater chair.
