Shock Horror

  • Reviews

Experience the “astonishing” Shock Horror, back to excite, unsettle and thrill those brave enough to book following last year’s critically acclaimed, sold-out tour.

This “must-see” ghost story combines live performance, illusion, and film to create an “outstanding piece of theatre”, taking audiences on a terrifying journey into childhood nightmares and being afraid in the dark.

Obsessed with finishing his life’s work, a horror fanatic returns home to a haunted cinema. As his mind unravels, painful memories wake from the dead, but something else waits for him… something much worse.

Meet the brilliant minds behind this modern horror masterpiece and unlock the secrets of Shock Horror.
