Playhouse Theatre in Liverpool have teamed up with Hammer to bring a production of THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE to Liverpool this December 2015.

No-one ever visits Hill House, especially not after dark.

When three strangers are invited to join the mysterious Dr Montague at the eerie house on the hill, not even their darkest dreams could have prepared them for what awaits. As their stay unfolds, they are plagued by a series of inexplicable events that propel them to the very edge of their existence.

A terrifying psychological thriller that plays with our perceptions of reality, Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House became one of the greatest horror films ever made (The Haunting, 1963) and her work influenced writers such as Stephen King and Neil Gaiman.  This Christmas watch as Hill House stirs into life on stage, in a new adaptation by Anthony Neilson (The Wonderful World of Dissocia, Realism and The Night Before Christmas).

Theatre can offer an immersive experience in bringing a scarier format to the stage, and Liverpool have quite a bit of experience in this more unusual theatre genre, from the moment you walk into the venue, after co-producing Ghost Stories before it hit the West End.

Ticket prices range from £14-£25 with the production running from 7th December 2015.


BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
