HORROR JUST GOT MORE REAL
Who knew running for your life in a zombie apocalypse could be so much fun?!
On Sunday evening, we made our way to a secret location for Secret Cinema’s latest celluloid staging, 28 DAYS LATER. Donned in our scrubs and face masks we entered a site where the deadly RAGE virus had just reached.
As everything about the event is a secret, I can’t really say much, but I can assure you that anyone who is a fan of the movie, this is the night out for you. From the fast paced, tension driven pre-film experience, to the screening of the movie itself, you are kept in their world. Every single non-audience member we spoke to throughout the evening stayed completely in character, which at times they were completely terrifying, but so right for the show. The level of detail in the scenic elements are so perfect, you forgot very quickly that it had just been installed for 28 DAYS LATER; it just fit the venue perfectly. Throughout the location there is a constant soundtrack playing, whether that be announcements or eery music, starting from the entrance, which instantly gets your heart pumping.
As I can’t say too much more, I will give a few hints and tips for those going:
- Once entering the location for 28 DAYS LATER you are asked to turn off your mobile phones and put them in a sealed bag so that you can’t use them throughout the event. This is a great thing to do as it really allows the audience to fully get immersed, not having to tweet or text someone after every exciting moment.
- Make sure you wear comfortable clothes and comfortable shoes – as its an immersive experience, you won’t just be standing still
- Refreshments are available in a few places during the night, but they do only accept cards, no cash.
For Secret Cinema’s first step into the world of Horror, 28 DAYS LATER hit a new level. You will scream, you will sweat and you will run!
