If You’ve Ever Wanted to Escape Your Own Murder, Now’s Your Chance
I can’t think of a single thing that sounds LESS fun than this “experience”. Now, I may be a bit biased because I really hate horror movies. But why the actual hell would you want to escape your own murder?! How is that FUN? I’m having a slight panic attack just thinking about someone hunting me down in a hotel FOR FUN. But, if you’re the masochistic type and this sounds like it might ring your bell, it might be time to renew that passport! The Hollow Hotel, in conjunction with differncENGINE theater group, will soon let guests reenact how serial killer H. H. Holmes murdered his victims. Nothing like a nice, relaxing stay at a hotel, running from a serial killer.
The victims of 19th-century serial killer H. H. Holmes were murdered in hotel rooms, and the interactive experience will involve having to escape your own murder. Good times, good times.

differencENGINE is the theater group putting on the event. According to the website, The Hollow Hotel will beÂ an immersive interactive psychological horror that draws inspiration from the historical events surrounding Americaâ€™s first and most terrifying serial killer â€“ H.H.Holmes â€“ the man whose preferred instrument of murder was a hotel.”
I don’t want to stay in ANY hotel now, let alone one where I have to escape my own murder. And yes I KNOW IT’S NOT REAL. I do not care. Room service and minibars, that’s what hotels are for. Not serial killers.
The theater group hasn’t released many details about the event, but say “if you listen to the whispers in its winding corridors, you might lose yourself as each turn entices you to delve further in; until you canâ€™t turn back. Journey through a maze of hidden passageways that will either lay you to rest, or lead you further into the hotelsâ€™ dark heart.” Sure, sounds great.
If you’re heading to London anytime soon, and want to scare yourself shitless while you’re there, tickets are on sale now. No judgement, we all have our kinks.
