This fall, enter the chaos of The Purge: Fear The Night, where all crime is legal for one night each year. Audience members inhabit this dystopian world for over two hours, embarking on their own discovery of six floors and 70,000 square feet of immersive horror-theater!
Blumhouse Productions, the multi-media production company behind highly successful and terrifying movies like the Paranormal Activity franchise, Sinister, Insidious, and The Purge, will once again take over the historic Variety Arts Theater in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, introducing an all-new, immersive live experience for the Halloween season.
Last year, the theater was home to The Blumhouse of Horrors, a haunted house created by producer Jason Blum’s film-production team that attracted rave reviews and capacity crowds. This year Blumhouse invites horror fans to experience The Purge: Fear The Night, inspired by the back story to the feature film. Jason warns audiences, “You don’t watch this story, it happens to you, and you’ll have the chance to wander and explore through it all on your own. Once you go inside, everything you do will have consequences, whether you like them or not.”
In this new type of horror-theater, guests become “delegates” to the annual convention of the New Founding Fathers, the dystopian governing party of a near-future America, in which all crime is legal once a year for 12 hours. To create The Purge: Fear The Night Blum has teamed with directors Josh Randall and Kristjan Thor, founders and creators of the phenomenally successful Blackout haunted house in New York and Los Angeles.
Once delegates are inside, the immersive horror-theater experience begins in the grand theater of the New Founding Fathers Headquarters. There, they will participate in the annual Founder’s Convention – which is held each year on Purge Night. But the visiting delegates will quickly discover that not all Americans believe in the Purge, and that the intense opposition can have frightening, even deadly, consequences. As they explore, delegates may find themselves complicit in the shocking acts undertaken by a warped government … directly threatened by hostile dissenters … or intrigued by the mysterious lives of elected officials. With every step, they will be drawn deeper into the New Founding Fathers Headquarters.
Politicians, patriots, dissidents, and traitors will directly engage delegates, who will be encouraged to interact with their surroundings and take their own time discovering the long-hidden, carefully guarded secrets of Purge Night and the New Founding Fathers of America.
