With Horror, Ahlbom created a magical world that is not often seen in theater. The challenge he faced was to remake the cinematic effects of horror movies in a live theater experience. Ahlbom wants to show the audience how ‘delicious’ horror can be.
Jakop Ahlbom has been fascinated by horror movies from an early age. “As a teenager I devoured all horror movies I could find. I loved the absurd fantasy, the special effects, the extremity of the events, the dark unknown and the adrenaline rush. In addition, I was intrigued by the black humor in the films, the slapstick used and the surreal imagination that is both fascinating and terrifying.”
