Disadvantages: It's NOT SCARY. Wasted alot of money!
I recieved tickets to see the above show at Duke of York on St Martins Lane.
Before attending I was very excited and abit scared actually, as I had been online and watched the trailor for the show.
This is unlike any other west end show, which I thought was going to be amazing. I was very very very disappointed.
The set is amazing, and it's decorated to suit the show, with a safety screen on display and scary sounds and screams coming from all directions, with random numbers scratched into the theatre walls.
To my disappointment this was the most scared I was going to be all night long.
I can't give away the plot of the show, as they do ask the audience to keep it a secret, however I can say that the show is JUMPY rather than SCARY. They use loud noises and bright lights to make you jump rather than actually scare you.
There were times the audience was laughing rather than screaming as the set and the props used were crap and not at all good, so I'm not sure if they have a big budget. The cast consists of 8 people, so it's a low budget show compared to the rest on show in the west end.
There is a twist at the end, but for those who have watched alot of movies then you'll probably guess the twist half way through the show.
I have read many reviews regarding this show, and many say it's scary and many say it's not, so I think it just depends on the person.
But i really hated the fact my sister spend £100 on 2 tickets as I see it as a waste of money, if you are not scared by scary movies, then please don't go to see this, it's crap. it's just jumpy and not scary at all.
Summary: Please don't go to see this show! it's crap.
