THE HERETIC 2018 IMMERSIVE HORROR LINEUP
Heretic Horror House has announced that 2018 will be the final full year for their extreme haunt–with one final October show in 2019 entitled EVERYONE DIES. Adrian Marcato and his haunted horror show have been operating somewhat off the grid for 5 years creating some of the most terrifying, yet evocatively beautiful experiences to date. While the closure of Heretic will leave an unfillable hole in the extreme haunt community, this extreme haunt still has one full year remaining–and it’s proving to be their busiest and most ambitious to-date.
Below, we will tease the 2018 roster of experiences and provide intensity levels for each experience. These cover a vast range of intensities and topics, including guest favorite MIDNIGHT KILLER 4, which now features four new killers, ISO/DREAD 2, which tests the limits of claustrophobic scenarios, and EXOSKELETON, which will attempt to emulate interplanetary exploration and provide a horrifying discovery. The Parallel will also make an appearance with INVERSION, which is a private invite only experience that will expand on previous sprawling experiences like VANISH. Finally, the year will end with a controversial show, THE SCORPION GARDEN, that will test gag reflexes and provide the dark and taboo subject matter.
Welcome to Heretic 2018!
