London Horror FestivalThe London Horror Festival returns to the Old Red Lion Theatre this October extending to four weeks and presenting over 30 productions of horror in the performing arts. The UK's biggest festival of horror is jam-packed with theatre, puppetry, cabaret, spoken word, body horror, clowning and comedy as well as mummies, zombies, ghosts and vampires. Show highlights include three new Frankenstein shows marking the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley: gender-bent by Burn Bright Theatre in their female-led retelling; frozen in the Antarctic wilderness by Two-Body Problem's chilling contemporary continuation of the story; and defiled by Fred Strangebone. Werewolf: Live, a comedy game show, comes fresh from Edinburgh Fringe, The Teind asks participants to pick their own poison and Midnight Horror from Chamber Piece Theatre presents a particularly spooky late night show.
