As the season of horror heads our way, two imaginative venues are taking the opportunity to showcase a few nights of thrills and spills.
This Halloween will see Mr Fogg’s Victorian home become the harrowing site of one of Jack The Ripper’s terrifying tours, whilst Maggie’s in Chelsea will be haunted by an evening of horror classics as part of an 80s slasherthemed movie party.
From Thursday 31st October to Sunday 3rd November guests to Mr Fogg’s – temporarily not so humble abode – will be witness to a weekend full of immersive theatre and spine chilling skits and sketches. From abandoned and severed limbs discovered in trunks, to overly inquisitive surgeons at the bar, Phileas Fogg will indeed have his work cut out for him on this eerie adventure.
The weekend’s events will then culminate in a seated, theatrical spectacle on the Sunday evening, when 80 of Phileas’s nearest and dearest will be invited to watch the mystery of The Ripper unfold. Fogg himself will then head up a Mayfair manhunt, in an attempt to apprehend Jack on his last jaunt, and save Bruton Lane from further fear of the night.
Meanwhile, on Saturday 2nd November, guests at Maggie’s can expect to enter a set of rusty wire garlands, gunky sacks of eyeballs and bloodied hanging knives, whilst DVD screenings of iconic horror movies including ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’, and of course, ‘Halloween’ are shown.
The bloodthirsty night will be hosted by Maxi Krueger, but there will also be special appearances from a few of his movie mates – Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees, Michael Myers, Chucky, Pinhead, Pumpkinhead, and even those creepy twins from the Shining. Rumour has it there will even be a midnight dance off between Freddy, Jason & Michael Myers – scary stuff indeed!
