Frightmare at Over Farm

Saturday 9 October – Sunday 31 October (Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays only) 2021

Frightmare is a multi-attraction Halloween event held at Over Farm every October. The activities push the boundaries of human emotion, triggering fear, fun and everything in between, You can be scared, you can laugh, it’s your experience.

Attractions for 2021:

  • Carnival - The Killing Booth - The Showman spent years collecting his twisted exhibits and scouring the earth for frightful acts.
    And then he “disappeared”.
  • Haunted Hayride  - In the 1950s, Over Farm set the scene for a notorious cult film, The Harvest. The movie was never properly finished, but was leaked out. Local film expert John Hews has set up a one-off film trail for fans of The Harvest, but little do they know that the farm holds a dark secret. And no one is safe. Not from the demented, unnatural characters, or from their creator, the notorious farmer himself. What could go wrong on a farm?
  • The Offering - Cataclysm - It’s 2069 and the human race is as good as extinct, with a few survivors remaining, just about living and waiting to die. It’s a new race that rules now.  A race that lived below for so long. A race that has discovered the secret to eternal existence. Barely human, they act on instinct, practice rituals and preach abhorrence. Carnage and bloodshed are the only languages they speak, and their food source will come from whatever’s closest, whatever is most convenient. Whether it’s one of their own, or an outsider who unhappily stumbles into their path, they will feast and they will thrive.
  • Seance - It’s been 60 years since the infamous Séance at the Crest Mansion. 6 months since paranormal investigators tried to prove whether the house was indeed a gateway to darkness. 6 days since several villagers started acting strangely. Very strangely. The official line is “gas leak”, but no one is buying it, with whispers of possession swirling around the village. Strange animals have been sighted and an air of gloom has descended. And most mysterious of all, the house is no longer empty. A secret group has moved in, but no one knows who they are, or why they’re here. They know exactly what they’re doing though, and they have much to prepare. This is their time. A time for chaos and evil. A time for darkness to reign.
    As darkness falls in the village, whispers of “Ave Satanas” are heard in the crisp, chilly air. The time has come.
  • Caged - The Battle - A sinister project saw scientific experiments become soldiers, warriors and killing machines. And then suddenly, with no explanation, the project was shut down. But the facility has returned, and this time the elite want to use their subjects for entertainment. The chosen sport?  Fights to the death. Survival of the fittest. What could go wrong?
    Well, the subjects have other instincts.  They weren’t made to be obedient, and their animal DNA lurks, waiting to strike. Who will be their victim?  Only time will tell. Make your wagers.  Prepare for battle.
  • Wonderland: 20/20- YA disturbing vision of an alternative reality. Everything looks fine. But it’s not. In fact, it’s very wrong. Familiar, but strange. Wonderful, but wretched. Sweet, but bitter. Welcome to Wonderland 20/20
