A lot of what went on inside Nightmare: New York is worthy of a Broadway stage. That is, if producers were willing to trade standing ovations for screams of terror. Psycho Clan, the artistic team behind this horrific attraction, has been going strong for more than a decade, uniting the talents of professional designers and theatrical stage directors. Along with talented actors, they craft a brand of terror worthy of dozens of theatrical accolades.
After years of creating and designing one of New York's premier haunted houses, Psycho Clan debuted "Nightmare Horror Show: New York's Most Terrifying Theater Festival": eight mini horror stage productions. Psycho Clan has branched beyond Halloween to events such as Santastical: A twisted wonderland with Santas of all kinds and Full Bunny Contact Extreme Egg Hunt: A battle against angry bunnies for prizes and candy.
