Shock Horror

by Thunder Road


Fanatic... film... and the thing that hides inside.

about the production

Shock Horror takes audiences on a heart pounding journey into the depths of human psyche. A haunting, cutting-edge ghost story combines multimedia screen action with live stage performance — perfect for Halloween. Herbert is a horror film fanatic. Raised in a cinema that screened only horror, hidden away by his deranged mother, Herbert develops a talent for making films of his own. Returning to the derelict cinema he grew up in, he presents his best film yet... Shock Horror. But there are more than memories inside The Metropol. What lurks behind the curtains? Or inside the walls itself?
