★★★★★ "Genuinely, persistently terrifying." THE STAGE
★★★★ "A wonderfully entertaining slice of physical theatre." THE OBSERVER
"Fans of horror films, you have to see this." EVENING STANDARD
Fear meets farce in this breathtaking nightmare live on stage…
A deserted mansion. A young woman and her friends are terrorised by a vengeful spirit when they return to the place of her tormented childhood. No longer able to suppress memories of her cruel parents and strange sister, she is forced to confront her hidden past and some terrible truths.
Swedish director and film aficionado Jakop Ahlbom’s homage to the horror movie genre is fiendishly clever, combining grand illusions and music for a terrifying theatre show. Referencing classic spine-chillers as well as more recent horror masterpieces, such as The Shining, Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, Horror will have you jumping out of your seat and grabbing the person next to you out of fright.
