Psycho Clan, the artistic team behind New York’s well known Nightmare Haunted House, has announced that it will shift it’s unique brand of terror from theatrical haunted house to a series of terrifying plays in it’s 12th season, presenting the inaugural Nightmare: Horror Show – NYC’s Most Terrifying Theater Festival, which will run October 7-31.
During four weeks in October, eight new mini-horror productions will be staged by Psycho Clan and various other theater companies. There are four programs, each premiering two new horror works that will thrill even the most jaded theatergoer. Each evening will feature either two or three programs (late nights on the weekends and closer to Halloween). In addition to the five productions accepted into the festival, Psycho Clan will be premiering three original works from members of the Nightmare creative team including Eddie by Nightmare production designer Paul Smithyman, Me_Irl by Nightmare specialty props and puppet maker Aaron Haskell and the World premiere of Nightmare creator and director Timothy Haskell’s Smile. The other hand-selected shows include Necromancer by Johnathan Frost, Bane from APT Theater, Night of the Touching Zombies from Figment and Anthony Girorgio’s Broken.
