More on La Casa de Satanas
La Casa de Satanas has been around for several years, but you wouldn’t know it unless you’re in the know. The Chicagoland area has numerous walkthrough no-touch attractions, but extreme haunts in Illinois are confined to Miasma and La Casa de Satanas. The latter is the more underground of the two, though it deserves just as much attention as its rival.
In their 2018 October show, Sovereign, participants applied to join the Royal Sovereign Republic of Satanas, an anarchist “sovereign citizens” militia committed to violently resisting the government and taxation. Potential recruits were subjected to a barrage of endurance tests—involving restraint, sensory deprivation, sensory overload, and simulated kidnapping—to determine their resilience and commitment to the movement.
La Casa de Satanas has also produced one-or-two-night-only extreme Valentine’s Day shows, including a 2018 run in Brooklyn.
Themes—including Powerless and Bad Blood—change every year and sometimes only loosely structure the experiences. While La Casa de Satanas maintains a commitment to intense physicality and disorientation across its shows, they do not seem to pride themselves on making guests “safety” out. But don’t think that means you’ll make it through unscathed.
