Fangoria

A series of horror shows we’ve built and performed in our garage for friends, admittedly its got a bit out of hand of late.


2010 – Machine

A steam-punk styled adventure through time in the Fangorium. With 18 months of building and preparation it was by far our most ambitious show to date. When you pick a theme like steam-punk you can’t do half measures. This has enjoyed some massive Internet fame when Cory Doctorow called it “jaw-dropping awesomesauceular” on Boing Boing, which was of course totally awesome.

2007 – They’re coming

During an all night Star Trek marathon, a group of Aliens decide to attack our garage, what a pain. Using a moving wall, compacting furniture, lighting, sound and thematic effects, we made it feel like you were transported from a small earth bound kitchen crammed full of sci-fi paraphernalia to a large, stark alien ship, which was unfortunately a bit hostile.

2006 – Sou Nos

Become initiated into this surreal club. We managed to engineer some special helmets which no only allowed people to see strange symbols in the pitch dark but swap the vision of the two people wearing the helmets, making walking down a simple corridor quite a strange and difficult experience. This one didn’t turn out to be quite so much fun as other shows, but what the hell, we enjoyed ourselves.

2005 – Circus

Roll up roll up, fun times for all (except one) with a hall of mirrors and a chainsaw. Secret doors, moving walls, changing lights and dropping curtains made this corridor system appear to go on forever.

2004 – Voodoo

Who’d have thought performing a devil summoning ritual would cause so much trouble? Go figure.

2003 – Just some scary stuff

Our humble beginnings. Sometimes you just need a drill with a chunk of metal jammed in the chuck, in a metal box, rigged to a switch…. and you’re done. We also had a dead body dummy hanging from a ceiling and a thrilling finale involving a bucket and a skull, this video doesn’t quite show it up. People screamed and laughed, which all you can ask for really.
