Twin Cities Horror Festival V: Senseless by Dangerous Productions

What's It About: "​One woman's journey into an underground facility filled with darkness, horror and blood. Tense and terrifying, this nightmare journey drags you beneath the surface of humanity and doesn't let go. Do not bring children. Do not come alone."

You may remember Dangerous Productions's pretty dang memorable production last year of Epidemic.  

Senseless is at least as bloody as Epidemic, if not more so. The protagonist is an author invited to visit a mental facility because of her own experience in an asylum. Despite a host of bad signs, starting with a scary elevator ride down, she proceeds to observe a doctor performing an experimental procedure on the facility's extreme cases. As her visit goes on, it brings up disturbing memories which are amplified by the erratic behavior of the residents.

If You're Sensitive and/or Delicate: This show has a blood technician, you guys. And you'll never think of marshmallows as an innocent treat again.

In Short: Complex, chilling, and gory, this is a delightfully creepy show.

Hot Tip: Dangerous Productions also has super cute tee shirts for sale in the lobby. Can I just say how much I covet the fabulous coffins used as display cases?
