CopyCat from CoLab Factory- Splutter Theatre

Are you ready to put your investigatory hat on? Did you know the there is a copycat killer on the loose?

The CoLab Theatre from Splutter Theatre have a case for you…

You will meet Anthony Larson, he has been investigating a string of killings following the kidnap and murder of his sister. The killer at large is known as the CopyCat Killer as the method he has used are similar to ones before him.

Anthony has decided to take this case on his own hands and he has enlisted the help of you to help him solve and find out who this serial killer is?

This is an uniquely terrifying immersive experience, one not for the faint hearted as there are images of torture and sick games being played out before you. The experience puts you in the middle of your worst horror movie as you solve the riddles and find the killer.

This experience is part horror show and part escape room, which for those who’s stomach turns easily, may I suggest you give this a miss? Not scaring you but be warned!

As usual, I can’t give away too much of the escape room elements as this is for you and your team to find out.

I experienced this with a bunch of experienced escape room players from Love Pop Ups London and horror enthusiast and we all well spooked from this experience.

The build up to the room was extremely well done, you really felt like you was part of it the whole journey.

Each of the rooms we went into was done in a way that I would never like to be stuck in, on my own.

Here are some quotes from their website:

“Fundamental fear at it’s finest”- Design My Night for previous show “The Harrowing”

“[Splutter Theathre] certainly promised scares…and they weren’t wrong!” ScaretourUK for previous shows “The Harrowing”

Artistic Director Benedict Hudson wanted to create a completely contemporary horror that places the audience inside their favourite film, he draws inspiration from movies such as; Saw; Se7en and Hounds of Love.. The experience is to ensure that everyone that comes along, gets to play a leading role in the own true crime tale.

The only suggestion I would make to the whole experience would be that the experience ended very abruptly with no one telling us how we did and how long it took for us to get out? I mean as an experienced player this is an important factor for most of us (a little sense of achievement of escaping and knowing we did it in the time allocated or less).

All in all, I think this was a amazingly well presented immersive experience and I would totally recommend it to those who a little bit of immersive role play in their escape room experience.

p.s totally not one for a first date if anyone is thinking this!

A good 4* stars review from me.. if you do go please let me know!
