Immersive Horror


Los Angeles


Give Up The Ghost, Immersive Theater, Los Angeles, Whittier, CA, Spectacular Disaster Factory

Give Up the Ghost is an interactive and immersive haunting play where you, the audience, are your own ghosts in the afterlife, lingering in Death’s foyer before the Ferryman brings you across the River to your final destination.

Give Up the Ghost reverses the typical Halloween haunt – the participants play their dead selves called back from the shore of Eternity to bear witness to the sorrows and terrors of the living. This is not a gore-fest, extreme haunt or jump-scare maze. The audience will interact with characters at the edge of life and death in scenes that can be violent, tragic, and occasionally darkly humorous. Unlike some immersive events, the choices each audience member makes will haunt them, will change their story, and just might change the entire narrative. What choices will you make, as your light grows dim?

The roughly 60-minute multi-sensory exhibit brings guests into the world of Just Fix It Productions’ Creep L.A., a darkly satirical and terrifying send-up of social media-driven culture.

HAUS OF CREEP sets out to remind us that art is alive, and it can’t be restricted to a little square photo without dangerous consequences. HAUS guests will spend the hour roaming an avant-garde and nightmarish playground of over a dozen installations, witnessing grand shocking scenes as well as intimate scares. Elaborate lighting and diverse and detailed environments create a surreal world in which guests may find themselves lost, unsure where reality ends and the show begins.

We return once more to Perpetuum Penitentiary and the torturous story of our Paula. After accepting responsibility for the vicious murder of her son, Lincoln, Paula now seeks atonement for past sins. Even after months of intense labor, strengthening her body and mind, Paula has repeatedly failed in appealing to the Prison’s sinister Warden for freedom. It’s not enough. It’s never enough. Her work must continue.

At Perpetuum, a new circle of hell has taken root. Courtesy of Vixi Labs, and by the Warden’s decree, all Prison treatment facilities will now be powered by revolutionary Vixi-technology. Operated by vile and sadistic engineers, their unorthodox methods for treating evils of humanity have hit new levels of depravity. They are enjoying every minute.

Amidst some of the oldest grave sites since Long Beach was established, rest the colorful, sometimes sordid stories of the past, of pioneers, speculators and others just along for the ride. We’ve been waking them up for a few hours these past 24 years, inviting them to share our richly diverse history from their resting places in the crusty, parched old cemeteries of slumping headstones we know as Sunnyside and Long Beach Municipal.

 

The tour features graveside presentations by actors who relate the life and demise of the person lying in rest. Each year’s program features a number of stories – some are individuals who helped shape the city’s political past, others are ordinary people whose tales remind us that rich or poor, famed or nearly forgotten, everyone has a story to tell.

Dates: Oct 26

Time: 9am-3pm (Last performances start at 2:40)

Price: Adults $20, Members $15, Children 5-18 $8, Children 4 and under $1
