For horror fans, the standard slasher-movie plot is both fun and familiar. For theater fans, the interactive structure definitely pulls you into the show as it unfolds. A great experiment and was interesting to participate in.... full review

Super creative, super fun, and super bloody and gory. MB stage takes the best elements of The Video Games, adds a cup of clever ingenuity, and a dash of Until Dawn to create something truly fun. ... full review

With the immersive conceit that the audience is taking part in a study about the nature of fear, this show sets itself apart. What results is a sort of choose your own adventure where the majority opinion of the audience rules, and the characters in the Rob Zombie Devil's Rejects like horror story, live or die as a result of those choices.... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 23, 2018
I thought this was an immersive theater show that would involve walking from room to room. It is a seated show in a theater in which the audience interacts by voting on what the characters should do next. I thought it would be a psychological thriller, but it was a classic serial killer slasher story. ... full review

This show was extremely taxing and very dull. Things were noticeably going wrong the entire show to the point the audience was groaning on a regular basis. The writing was schlocky (“did you guys hear about the disappearances?”), but despite that there were a few stand out performances. The cannibal wife was particularly chilling. Despite having a good amount of queer characters, the play found a way to be weirdly homophobic. It was upsetting. Particularly the jock who was weirdly homophobic to only one gay guy despite being friends with two gay guys everyone knows are closeted. And even after the very obvious reveal of being gay himself he STILL calls the guy “fruitloop”. It was alienating and offputting. Every single character a... full review

This show was billed as inmersive, but was really a mildly interactive choose your own adventure. That would have been fine, but it was the most offensive, poorly written, clunky mess of a story imaginable. There was no humor, no understanding of the tropes they were supposed to be satirizing, and nothing remotely scary. Two members of our party left due to the horriibly homophobic language.... full review
GREGORY MARCONI certified reviewer June 18, 2018
Immersive? Really? I signed a waiver. Why? In what way was any kind of harm going to possibly come to me by just sitting in a theatre seat. I would LUV to bring creators of what people THINK is immersive to events like Blackout, Alone: An Existential Haunting, or the grand-daddy of them all, Heretic Horror. Now THATS immersive. But it doesn't have to all be horror. The Fringe event "What Went Wrong" was definitely immersive. I was the only audience member with cast moving about all around me. Even the show "Ghosts" allowed the audience of about 20 people to move about the set and the actors interacted with the audience.... full review
