“A little scratching in the night is nothing to be afraid of… right?”
Your phone rings, and you meet Danny. Danny has a monster in his closet. He doesn’t know what to do next, so he’s calling you for help.

From IL-based, critically-acclaimed immersive theatre company Candle House Collective comes claws: a phone-based horror experience for a solo participant.

Tickets are available here:

You can experience claws anywhere in the world, from your own bedroom – all you need is your mobile phone. The phone will ring at the exact time you select at checkout, and your personal 30-40min experience will begin.

This remote thriller has been sold out since June, and is extending just in time for the Halloween season. Reservations for claws are available Oct 1–Nov 3, and space is very limited.

Don’t miss the telephonic haunt that W42ST called “deeply immersive, dark, and suspenseful.” According to Nightmarish Conjurings, “you can’t help but be completely and utterly drawn into this world of horror and mayhem.”

This season, experience a wholly unique kind of haunting.
All you have to do is pick up the phone.
