Those of you who love the thrill of being scared have something to look forward to come this Autumn as the nights draw in.
Because in the run-up to Halloween Hammer Film Production, the undisputed masters of horror, will be venturing into the unknown by pesenting their first ever immersive theatre performance - 'Hammer House of Horror Live'.
The production will be created by some of the most experienced and exciting practitioners in immersive theatre, film and digital technology.
Moreover, the chilling new production will be based on an original script and set in and around the remarkable Victorian music hall - Hoxton Hall.
During October, a maximum of 200 'brave' souls a night will have the opportunity to witness a spell-binding vampiric ritual.
The audience will be drawn from the vaults to the rafters of Hoxton Hall, dipping in and out of this other-world as they dare, before being led inexorably towards the night's spectacular finale, where they will face ... the unimaginable!
The producers claim we're to be offered 'a tense and intimate encounter' where no two performances are the same, and no two audience experiences will be quite alike.
Karena Johnson, Artistic Director of Hoxton Hall, said:
"We are really excited to be making history with the iconic British film brand Hammer, by hosting their first-ever immersive theatre experience in our unique and atmospheric music hall.
Hammer House of Horror Live is one of the highlights in our Autumn season programme, and we're really looking forward to welcoming the Hammer team to Hoxton Hall.
This has been an incredible beginning to what we hope will be a long-lasting relationship with Hammer, working alongside them on many more thrilling and innovative projects".
Hammer is the film company best known for its heart-stopping, blood-curdling gothic horror classics, including Dracula (1958), The Mummy (1959), and more recently the blockbuster hit Woman in Black (2012)l.
If you're tempted by what sounds like a pretty fab and intriguing production, the advice is "DON'T DARE GO ALONE "!
