It’s October, which can only mean one thing: Halloween will be here before you know it.
And for the first time ever, Screemers, which is celebrating its 27th frightening year, will be 100% indoors, making it darker, scarier, and more terrifying than before.
Screemers will once again take over Exhibition Place on weekends leading up to Halloween and is billing seven haunted walk-through themed horror mazes, over 120 live scare actors, and a midway of mayhem all in one place.
Among the new haunts this year is the Carnival of Carnage and Kill Show.
At the Carnival of Carnage, the screams of joy and laughter commonly heard when enjoying a carnival will turn to shrieks of fear and crying at this demented carnival.
According to organizers, this carnival has all the best components of any good carnival, a midway, magic show, freak show, rides, and more, but in this case something has gone drastically wrong. This is a midway full of unthinkable horrors, that appeals to your greatest fears and is more of a nightmare than a dream. Hold on to your loved ones, because one of you may become the next victim to join this maniacal carnival of horrors.
As for the all-new Kill Show it is “back and bloodier than ever. Illusionist Massacre Matthews and his freaks return to terrorize Screemers. This year Massacre Matthews doubles down on the blood and gore with all-new kills! This first of its kind, fully immersive stage show will leave you speechless, and bloody!”
