SOMETHING MISSING .. ?
Not our usual type of show, but we were talked into booking. A promising start, nothing wrong with the acting ... but the writing was just a bit weak. Quite disappointed, as it could have been a great show (and certainly not good value for money, given the very short performance length!).
P.G. from London,
DISSAPOINTING AND OVER-HYPED
I went to watch this on 27th March and was expecting great things but was hugely disspaointed. More people in the audience were laughing than were actually frightened. There were a few jumpy moments but nothing that left you memorably shaken. It was also very short, and I was left thinking 'is that it?'. Its true some have a higher tolerance to horror than others but I wish I had believed the reviews myself and stayed well away. Also, you cannot leave to use the toilets or get a drink, as you are not allowed back in under ANY circumstances. A few poor members tried in vain, one guy had a medical condition but was shown no sympathy. There are no secrets or mind boggling special effects and for the price of the tickets tyou expect a lengthier and truly frightneing experience not a few fair ground ride jumps.
Jordan from Kent,
Signs tell you not to spoil the shows great surprise and I can only assume they mean "don't tell anyone how terribly awful the play is". It's honestly the worst show I've ever seen. It's not scary in the slightest and it just spirals out of control past the first ghost story, which happens to be the only descent story. Each ghost story is good at building tension but unless you like werewolf-hellhound-murderers and Woolworths quality costumes then you are not going to be thrilled. I've never felt a bigger hole in my wallet.

What can I tell you about Ghost Stories, London's new favourite spine chilling scare-fest playing at The Arts Theatre? Well, as it turns out, not a great deal. The show ends with a disclaimer...Read full review
