More on Shock Theater
Shock Theater is an art collective supporting and creating immersive entertainment since 2013.
Their current project Eye for Horror is an intense survival series that blends photography and extreme haunting into one insane adventure. You play a model hoping for your big break but all is not what it seems when those shooting your photos reveal their true intentions and that’s to capture the moments of your life before you die. Can you survive 10 scenes of pure torment, humiliation and terror or will you end up at rock bottom of their twisted vision?
Eye for Horror is run 4 times a year : Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.

Past Shock Theater Projects:
2013 to 2015: Shock Theater focused on the Dead of Night series, with Dystopia, Initiation, and MK Ultra.
2015 to 2017: The Dead of Night transitioned into Dread The Night, with Blind Date, From Beyond, Rituals, and Dystopia Redux. They also did stand-alone shows, Escape the Dark, Ultra Violence, and Wrong, during this time.
2018: Eye for Horror is series of seasonal extreme haunt photo shoots in which participants are pushed to their limits in order to achieve the best pictures. Night Gaunt was a month long immersive horror experiment in which the story unraveled via Texts, Phone calls, video and letters mailed to participants houses. It was a story that about a toxic relationship that goes horribly wrong and evolves into something much more evil in real time.
Selected quote from Eye for Horror:
“Eye For Horror does not rely on music or lighting to set the tone. This is the first event I ever experienced that occurred in broad daylight – a stark and ultra-real contrast to the darkness and moodiness of past horror experiences. There’s no place to hide. Every area of the garage is exposed, like the giant tank of water in the corner, and a pair of handcuffs swinging from a rope, a Chekhov’s Gun that I know is definitely meant for me.
While this particular session archives the events at an auto repair shop tangled in a political conspiracy, another might place the participant in the center of a crime scene at a shady motel. This concept of staging the photoshoots between alternating locations and themes allows the format to remain fresh and unpredictable.
Eye For Horror’s focus in capturing the ugly and unflattering aspects of life on camera is not necessarily a desirable experience most will seek out and that’s by the show’s design, but those that do feel compelled to take the plunge all have their reasons for participation. Whether you label the experience as a test of endurance, form of entertainment, or a unique opportunity to be a living canvas, your decision to participate will be sanctified by the camera.”
