On Sunday, July 30th at 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm, the “Scream and Stage: Immersive Horror Theater” Panel occurred at Midsummer Scream. In the video, they explore the incorporation of horror into immersive experiences, how these elements are accomplished in a safe environment while still preserving the unknown, and how The Overlook Film Festival curates its immersive events. Watch the video above, this is not one to miss.


“Join Noah Nelson of No Proscenium as he hosts modern masters of immersive horror theater in an in-depth discussion of their own productions, styles, and vision of what comes next for increasingly sophisticated audiences.

This fascinating panel presentation will feature Jonathan Josephson, Executive Director of Unbound Productions (Wicked Lit); Anna Mavromati, Co-Founder of Shine On Collective; Zombie Joe, the gregariously-eccentric Leader of Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre Group at ZJU Theater; and Landon Zakheim, Co-Director of the Overlook Film Festival.

Sure to be an incredibly interesting discussion, this is one presentation that fans of horror theater won’t want to miss!”
