Entertaining, Dated, Slow

See it if Old fashioned 2 person show. Some fun startles. Only matinee on a Tuesday.

Don't see it if At 1hr 50 min a 20 min intermission was uncalled for. Slow especially on start. Sometimes confusing.

Not scary, Overrated, Slow, Disappointing

See it if You have nothing else to see.

Don't see it if You are expecting it to be scary. It was not suspenseful & only had a couple moments of ‘jump scares’ provoked by sound effects. Read more

Scary

See it if You enjoy seeing a horror on stage. This is a very hard genre to tackle.

Don't see it if You are expecting to be scared the entire time. It’s not like going to a haunted house but more like hearing a scary ghost story Read more

Intelligent, Entertaining, Clever, Ambitious

See it if Its fantastic to see a ghost story played out on stage. The effects were pretty strong at creating a eerie atmosphere.

Don't see it if If you don't enjoy slow burn horror or hauntings, if you're the kind of person who can't suspend disbelief for haunted houses

Great acting, Masterful, Intense

See it if you like horror movies. A great thriller that achieves so much with so little. With just two actors it keeps you on edge all the time.

Don't see it if you don't like scary plays. It's more psychological most of the time but expect to jump on your seat a couple of times at least.

Slow, Intense, Great writing, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy horror plays - it's very spooky! I'd say I found this much more frightening than the film adaptation.

Don't see it if you are easily scared.

Time Out London
September 7th, 2021

Yet the shrieks and gasps that greet the performance demonstrate that, even in the twenty-first century, this doughty little drama still casts its delicious spell of malevolence and menace.

For a previous production

The old stories are always the best - and this one has lost none of its power to terrify.

For a previous production

It is a clever tale that is full of surprises and suspense...It is not hard to see why this show has lasted so long, I sincerely hope that it makes it through another 3,000 performances.
