Part of HOME Manchester’s new theatre season, Ur Favourite Scary Movie will take you into a sonic world of horror this Halloween.

A unique Halloween adventure – you don’t even need to leave the house for.

Using iconic horror movie sound bites, Foley sound and spoken word, this indulgent binaural audio experience promises a scary adventure like no other. In a celebration of everything horror, the performance pays homage to some of the most memorable on-screen moments while also examining our cultural fascination with the genre.

Written and performed by Louise Orwin with original music and sound design by Alicia Jane Turner, the piece has been described as “part horror dreamscape” and “part investigation” into our obsession with horror. Ur Favourite Scary Movie asks you to question what keeps you awake at night, how it feels to immerse yourself in the unknown and the effect of fear on your imagination.

Humorous, bloodthirsty and provocative.

The performance has been developed as a digital offshoot from a forthcoming new work, Cry Cry Kill Kill, which is still in development and due to premiere in 2021.

Available solely as an audio experience or accompanied by a video component. Humorous, bloodthirsty and provocative, Ur Favourite Scary Movie promises a unique Halloween adventure, and you don’t even need to leave the house for it.
