Fear meets farce in Brisbane Festival’s 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 ingeniously gruesome, genuinely scary and very funny. 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 hand-over-mouth screaming and shuddering at the edge of your seat.

★★★★★ “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
