Scared of the dark? You might want to give the latest horror attraction to come to Manchester a miss. Survive the Nightmare will see audiences shut inside a pitch black shipping container for an experience of unsettling terror.
Sessions will last 20 minutes, during which guests will follow the sinister journey of a young couple moving into a rundown Victorian house. While attempting to make the house Christmas-ready, spooky happenings begin to take place in the darkness. What lies in the darkness will be slowly revealed throughout the performance. It promises to be a ‘spine-tingling, unsettling thriller’ that’s only suitable for those aged 16 and older. The ‘extreme scares’ will take place in total darkness inside the transformed shipping container and it’s advised that those with any heart conditions or a nervous disposition proceed with caution. Writer and director Thomas Moore said: “I’ve always wanted to make a truly terrifying show that appeals to thrill-seekers who want to go beyond watching a horror film and experience one.
“I can’t wait to share our nightmare with Manchester audiences and terrify the wits out of them.” Producer Sarah Arden said: “We are delighted to be bringing the first in the ‘Survive the Nightmare’ series to Manchester. “We’re looking forward to giving audiences a chance to immerse themselves in another world, and to experience a truly alternative festive experience. “This is definitely one for those who are more inclined to thrillers than festive cheer!” Survive the Nightmare will arrive at an undisclosed location on November 29, and remain in place until January 12, 2020. Ten sessions a day will take place between 3pm and 9pm.
