The Critically Acclaimed 'Disturbed' is Back for Halloween

Oracle Continues the Horrific Tradition
The Critically Acclaimed Disturbed series is Back for Halloween

This October, Oracle Productions submits their third installment of horrifying Halloween entertainment. Opening
October 10th, the warped minds of Oracle’s artistic collective are at it again with Disturbed III, a 15-minute theatre-of-horror series that is becoming a Halloween staple among Chicago thrill-seekers. Further expanding on the model of an inverted haunted house, Oracle’s intimate space requires the audience to stay stationary, while the action pops out of every unexpected corner in a twisted, confined environment. This year, Oracle unabashedly closes the gap between imagination and realism in the gallery of a brainsick artist who has turned human anatomy into a medium of gruesome, surgical sculpture.

Professional acting, complex multimedia sequences, dramatic narrative, and explicit themes set Disturbed III apart from traditional Halloween entertainment. Performances run every 30 minutes, 8PM to 11:30PM October
10-11, 16-19, 23-26, 28-11/01 at Oracle Theatre, 3809 N. Broadway. Tickets are $9. Visit www.oracletheatre.org for schedules and online ticket sales; phone and voicemail reservations are not accepted for this event.

Time Out Chicago called the original Disturbed, “crap-your-pants scary,” claiming, “…the storefront mind-fuck…makes for a wicked (Halloween) alternative.” Last year, Metromix Chicago described Disturbed II as “More Bone Chilling than any haunted spectacle.” Once again combining live action, multimedia, prosthetic make-up and special effects, Disturbed III will twist and gnarl the psyche of participants.

Series creator Brad Jayhan-Little explained, "There is a difference between startle and scare. Haunted houses just startle people. Disturbed will really scare them." In the same vein, Disturbed II, created and directed by Colby Hanik, presented a live-action styling of a gory ‘Slasher Film’ to audiences standing only five feet from the action. Inspired by the horror of Poe and the fantastical fiction of H. G. Wells, Disturbed III brings an all-new twisted plot and spectacles worthy of the Grand-Guignol that promise to leave this year’s audiences nothing less
than...DISTURBED.

WARNING: Due to explicit imagery and violent action, Disturbed III is for adults 18 and older ONLY.  More specifically, it is for participants who enjoy the once-a-year thrills of a horrifying haunted house. Performances
run every 30 minutes, 8PM to 11:30PM October 10-11, 16-19, 22-26, 28-11/01 at Oracle Theatre, 3809 N. Broadway. Tickets are $9. Visit www.oracletheatre.org for schedules and online ticket sales; phone and
voicemail reservations are not accepted for this event.  Press are invited to all performances.

Happy Halloween...
