*Looks like there getting help from Delusion
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment brings some their most terrifying horror films to life when HORROR REWIND arrives in Downtown Los Angeles the weekend of Friday the 13th. Taking place over the course of three nights, this immersive experience is produced by The Great Company in collaboration with the creators of premiere interactive horror theater Delusion.
In a secluded corner of the Arts District of Los Angeles, a deranged horror movie super fan, has created a living, breathing installation in homage to his four favorite films (THE FLY, THE HILLS HAVE EYES, 28 DAYS LATER and CARRIE). In tribute to these films, he has trapped innocent civilians inside and transformed them into demented and deformed monsters, forced to live-out his most terrifying celluloid nightmares.
For those who make it out alive, forget what your mother told you and stop by the ominous van parked outside. There you’ll be able to feed your own macabre obsessions and purchase any of 19 brand new Blu-rays featuring collectible packaging cover designs by acclaimed digital artist Orlando Arocena.  Limited edition posters of Arocena’s work will also be available as a gift with purchase while supplies last.
Fans can also purchase the full line-up of the Halloween faceplates from Arocena here:
