LOVED this. I am a fan of dark, terror/horror/thriller stuff, and while this was mild in comparison to a lot of movies I have seen, it was brilliantly done. Hats off to the entire cast, crew and everyone involved.

More modern dance than a...continued

super dark, super minimal, very mind blowing and chilling. Amazing!! However, not for everyone as it depicts very quick, twisted mayhem, psychopathic tendancies and death.
The lighting and score added to the intensity of the production....continued

This incredibly unique, if somewhat short, production sports quite a few 5 star ratings here on Goldstar, but that may actually work against it in an offhand way. My advice is; definitely see this wonderfully committed work, easily worth the...continued

I absolutely loved this show. I've seen a lot of bad theatre in L.A., but this show completely restored my faith. It was inspired, original, and totally creepy. 47 horrific moments in about an hour -- think sketch comedy but scary. They...continued

I absolutely loved this play and would definitely go see it again. It's VERY funny, scary, entertaining, dark, disturbing, filled with surprises and laughter! Go see it, you will NOT be disappointed.

Let's see, what to say about this late night entertainment. It took me a little while to warm up to the theme. It was a series of tableaus and very short enactments of incidents at once or by turns shocking, horrorific, amusing or disgusting. Each...continued

This play is great! You spend most of the time in the dark which really starts to mess with your eyes and mind. The actors did a great job setting up each skit in the pitch black. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

We really enjoyed this show! It was a great portrait of all things horror. It was a bit spooky (others may be a little more spooked than I was, especially if you are afraid of the dark) and actually quite funny. I was genuinely entertained and I...continued

Very impressive- especially considering the space and technical instruments available. I took off a star because, for me, it was too long, I was done a little over half way through plus the overuse of a certain kind of scene. But, the cast,...continued

Not for the squemish. However,a great night out! Awesome effects and some truly wonderful performances from the actors. You'll jump from your seat with fright one moment and roll into the aisle with laughter the next.

I took my 16 year old son...continued

Excellent and unique! Like nothing else, really. I recommend it to anyone who loves horror films and Halloweens at Knott's Scary Farm and Universal Studios.

It was not 5 star perfection, but I did "love it" so I will adhere to Goldstar's rating system. The show was as described, vignettes that reminded me of some of the scariest moments in my favorite horror movies. They did a great job creeping me...continued

Urban death has a few misses, but the mostly hits are FANTASTIC!!! Sticking by the idea of less is more, Urban Death delivers the horror of minimal lighting and sound, but exploiting them expertly. This allows the audiences imagination to be a...continued

This theatre group is amazing. It's many vignettes which occur in a blacked-out theatre room. It shows several dark and disturbing scenes, and it completely plays on your senses. Very enjoyable.

bunch of scenes of horror (madness, lust, black comedy) in a small dark room with simple chairs. no words, blackout intermissions between scenes, i would not go unless you enjoy playing with the cat's tail. ~1hr

This was incredible. I'm a huge horror fan. The skits are funny and perfectly timed. I wasn't scared, but most of the other patrons were.

Very fun and different evening of gothic/horror entertainment put on by a game cast in an unusual space. Prepare to have a team of actors do their best to disturb you and frequently succeed.
