Attention ghost, ghouls, and Horror aficionados Blood Manor will open its doors once again for the fourteenth consecutive season in New York City. Located in the Hudson Square District of Manhattan Blood Manor offers a frightful experience for those who dare to enter.
This year’s event not only brings different aesthetics but also some new features to handle busy evenings.
The press event was held on the 28th of September 2017 within an exhibition area to the WeWork Varick Street location. In comparison to last year, this atmosphere had an inviting, open setting. Music pumped with satisfactory volume and did not overpower the many conversations within the room.
After indulging in wine and music, Blood Manor’s slate of twisted characters made a dramatic appearance. The actors and actresses portrayed the many levels of nightmarish creatures.
From zombies to backwoods serial killers the personalities went about the room frightening and entertaining guests. Yet, it was more of the latter considering the creatures were out if the environment. With the sufficient lighting within the event space, every flaw to the makeup was noticeable. So what if this was the case. Costume design and prosthetics may not have been camera ready but that did not hinder the fun everyone was having.
The venture into Blood Manor was another experience in itself.
This year many notable changes to the interior were noted. Some of the rooms were revamped to include large-scale monsters. A darkened corridor illuminated with green laser lights was also added to disorient patrons. Although there were alterations to the layout much of the decor and experience remained the same. One of the most attractive features to Blood Manor is a passageway I dub the “3D avenue”. Here patrons are given retro-style 3D glasses and venture into a passageway covered with neon illustrations of horror.
The performers go out of their way to make the experience more enjoyable. I appreciate the interaction they offer to patrons. Getting the shit scared out of you does not have to be serious. The actors and actresses deliver humor and Horror in a way that makes patrons feel at ease. Blood Manor is not an extreme Haunt. It is a place to take your friends, enemies, and neighbors to have a good time.
While Blood Manor may seem tame to our level of Horror intake it did send the three women in our group running to the exit. With that regard, casual purveyors of Horror will have an exciting adventure within the halls of Blood Manor.
Below are excerpts from the press release, descriptions to added feature on this year’s event.
