"Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman's horror play does a fine job of intriguing, amusing, unsettloing and, yes, scaring the willies out of you. Dyson and Nyman... know how to make hokum plausible and vivid
It's short, sharp and shockingly good fun. There's a reason... this show broke all Box Office records in its runs in Liverpool and Hammersmith this year"
Times, Dominic Maxwell
"A whole lot of fiendish fun.
A supremely entertaining thrill-ride."
