We were so looking forward to this show, having read several reviews. Could not have been more disappointed or less scared. A complete waste of money - and the tickets weren't cheap. Unfortunately we paid full price. I'd actually say that this is the worst show I personally have ever seen.

Saw this last night, quite entertaining but Scary?!?  guess I just couldn't suspend my imagination far enough, to get out of my mind that I was in a theatre and the people on stage were actors. In fact it felt more like pantomome than anything else. The best parts are the sound effects and volume of. Sorry I expected more, so was ultimately disappointed. Guess you would need to go and see it and make your own mind up, there were some young lady's in front of me who seemed genuinely terrified. Guess it's 'horses for courses'.

I saw this with a group of friends. We were sitting in the back row and have never screamed so much in our lives! Really good fun, but also really jumpy - mixture of joy and terror!

"Ghost Stories" fits superbly into the industrial feel black box auditorium of the Arts theatre, much better than when it was at the Duke of Yorks. Very atmospheric, very scary and what I expected and sadly lacking from "The Weir" I got tonight in "Ghost Stories" - true horror and chills to put you on the edge of your seat. Not for the faint hearted, and tonight I shall make sure the bedroom curtains are well and truly closed - any slight crack of light peeking through will make me have have nightmares. Go see "Ghost Stories" but be prepared to be truly scared! Loved it

The atmosphere starts in the lobby, with horrific decor. Recommendation - go to the toilet beforehand. Why? It's right beside the auditorium, and the background track - I wouldn't really call it music - that plays before the show is piped in there too. It's quite a surreal experience to go to the toilet to the accompaniment of loud dripping sounds, clanking, moaning.. The description of the show format from 2010 still holds true. It's the same format. I can't vouch for whether it's the same show - I suppose not. It starts with quite an interesting lecture, followed by re-enactments of three experiences that the "professor" had told to him. Mostly for laughs, these - but the end of the show is truly creepy. Go see! If you like a decent scare, you will not be disappointed.
