BLOOD MANOR, NYC's Premier Haunted Attraction: The Nightmare on 27th Street, returns with a depraved appetite for gore and a twisted thirst for blood, in the same creepy location, 542 West 27th Street (btwn 10th & 11th Ave). Back to quell the cravings and satiate the hunger of gluttons for punishment and marauders of macabre revelry, BLOOD MANOR will open with a bloodcurdling scream on Friday, October 3, 2008. Immensely successful in 2005, 2006, and 2007, BLOOD MANOR will serve up a delectable dose of carnage in its fourth year of scaring Manhattan senseless. With louder screams, scarier dreams and more thrills for each moment in its fun-filled darkness, BLOOD MANOR makes your nightmares come to life. In October 2008, BLOOD MANOR unveils its freaky facelift and complete makeover of eight newly themed horror experiences, dozens of cutting-edge animatronics and scores of state-of-the-art props. When you first enter Blood Manor, you pass through the I Scream Parlor where the organist was an unwilling organ donor in his former life, and who-knows-what lurks behind the walls. The immediate chill you feel is intensified while battling the terrifying elements of the Thunderdome: a fierce electrical storm complete with pounding rain, howling winds and blinding lightning. If you survive the putrid precipitation of Mother Nature’s wrath, you’ll get no respite in Hog Hell. You’ll squeal like a hog and your only escape is through Skull Alley, but you wake the dead as you stumble on your way. The petrifying path is bathed in UV light, which is utterly shocking as it envelops you. Duck into the Boiler Room where scalding hot steam emits from the pipes and smoke abounds in this dismal underground passageway. Make your way through this psycho superintendent’s lair quickly or you may wind up looking like one of the charred bodies. Speaking of looks, stop in for a touch-up at the Beauty Shop of Horrors - it will be the last appointment you'll ever need! If your shave is a little too close, you can choose a new scalp-style from the multitude of horrible heads adorning the shelves. Show off your new coif while staggering down the all-new, electrifying 3-D maze by world famous artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs, LLC. Experience sensory overload as she-demons, creatures, zombies, spiders and other unidentifiable beings take note of your presence and breathe down your neck. There are no restrooms here, but upon entering the Blood Bathroom you just might relieve yourself. The stench of dried blood hangs in the air of this 3D scene of a massacre, but don’t gag too loudly or you may awake the psycho sleepers in the 3D Boudoir of Endless Sleep next door. There are a total of nineteen environments - each with its own creepy digital sound effects that will make your heart skip a beat. Blood seeps, drips and pours everywhere; Blood Manor spews roughly 37 gallons of blood per night, give or take a fatality. The finale of this terror tour is bound to leave you running for your life, if you escape with your limbs intact, from The Slaughterhouse.That’s just a sampling of the sinister smorgasbord awaiting you at Blood Manor – there’s plenty more where that came from – it’s a blood buffet! For those of you who have previously survived, Blood Manor, 2008 will provide many new and extreme experiences; for first time visitors, you will finally face your darkest fears! Jim Faro, Mike Rodriguez and Jimmy Lorenzo, whose combined passion for all things spooky, created this Halloween Haven. Sparked by insurmountable cravings for the macabre and decades of their own incredible Halloween houses, the trio have reached scary nirvana with BLOOD MANOR.The team works all year long to perfect the haunted attraction in time for “the only month that really matters,” October. If BLOOD MANOR doesn't scare you out of your skull, these guys are not satisfied. With these guys – HALLOWEEN IS DEFINITELY NOT JUST FOR KIDS!
