Night Terrors

In the dark, still hours of the night, you hear a sound... a creak. It is real? Your heart beats faster. Is that a shadow moving in the closet? You're probably just imagining it. You hold your breath. Is that a voice... or is it in your head? It's probably just a dream and you should try and wake up.

Come join us for a series of nightmares, each more terrifying... each darker and more sinister. Just remember to wake up.

*WARNING* This show contains simulated violence and adult sexual content. If it was a movie, it would be rated R.
