The premise is every horror geek’s dream: Horrorwood Video is the last place in Vegas where you can find the best fright flicks. Tonight, however, insane clerk Leon has opened up a vortex.
Once you step through it, you’ll find yourself stuck in the middle of your favorite 1980s horror films, including “The Hex,” “Gym Class of the Dead,” and “Slaughter House Massacre 5: Pig-Gut’s Revenge.” The question isn’t just whether you get out safely…but will you accrue enormous late fees while trying?
HORRORWOOD VIDEO is created by Majestic Rep’s Artistic Director Troy Heard, who also created the immersive experiences JONESTOWN, MOTEL and MEASURE FOR MEASURE. “I grew up watching all the classic slashers - Jason, Freddy and Michael - but I also came of age with movies such as THE MONSTER SQUAD, GREMLINS, and THE GOONIES. Although they weren’t pure horror flicks, they had a sense of adventure that’s coming back into fashion with STRANGER THINGS,” says Heard. “This year, I wanted to create a very theatrical haunt that combines those genres and taps into that particular vein of scary fun. We’re creating scenes from these fictional movies that totally could’ve existed in 1988 and casting you in them when you enter Leon the Clerk’s vortex. You’ll actually go trick or treating, join a teenage witch’s coven and go camping with some unsavory types as you walk through the experience. And I promise there are plenty of scares around every corner.”
HORRORWOOD VIDEO will be open Thursday, October 25, through Sunday, October 28, from 7pm to midnight each night. Admission is $15; VIP tickets are $20 and include a one-time-only front of the line pass and exclusive HORRORWOOD VIDEO swag. Majestic Repertory Theatre is located at 1217 S. Main Street. Tickets are on sale October 1st at www.horrorwoodvideo.com. For more information call 702-423-6366.
