This Saturday, Manchester gets prepared for Halloween as House of the Dead opens at the Great Northern Warehouse.
The warehouse sports labyrinthine corridors, detailed ‘horror movie quality’ sets and 30 actors.
Director of Evil at House of the Dead Ltd Richard Cottier, said: ‘We are really excited for opening weekend and the chance to inflict all manner of creatures, ghouls and zombies on Manchester.
‘The sets look fantastic and we can promise a truly immersive horror experience. With a cast of 30 we are confident we can make all your nightmares come true. We are very excited to hear just how loud we can make our guests scream, cry and shout for their mum!’
Scare attractions are the UK’s fastest growing entertainment sector and have seen major innovations in the industry over the past 10 years. House of the Dead Ltd is bringing the very best in interactive horror experiences to Manchester.
House of the Dead measures 6,200sq feet and stretches over two floors. It will take 40 minutes to walk through.
Paul Jamieson, Architect of Mayhem and Chief Artistic Designer at House of the Dead Ltd, has been designing this event for the past six months and a team of crafts people has spent the last two months to build the experience in time for its opening on Saturday 3 October.
