“Adrenaline-pumping highs they’re hunting for – this is about as close to a rollercoaster experience as the West End can provide.” - Whats on Stage

“Pummelling the audience with horror-show frights and sensory overload: eerie smoke effects, mind-boggling levitations, scary vocal distortions reminiscent of “The Exorcist” and noise — so much noise.” - NY Times

“I can tell you there is mind-boggling 3D-film imagery, true-crime style newspaper montages, clever use of doubles and misdirection, and gruesome physical effects.” - Evening Standard

"Magic and dramatic." - Daily Mail
