In a series of flashbacks, brought to terrifying life with illusions, acrobatics and mime, the terrible truth is unleashed on the youngest sister and her friends. An imaginative tribute to the horror movie genre, Horror will draw you into a dark world of tragic family history. Immerse yourself in theatre magic that will make you shiver.
