Welcome to your "anachronistic future." Third Rail Projects' Steampunk Haunted House at Abrons Art Center uses suspense to scare you out of your Victorian trousers.
LONG DEAD: Manufactured haunted house “experiences” are one thing – but prowling through a dimly-lit home in which real people died more than a century ago is entirely another. Tonight, the Merchant’s House Museum – once home to a prosperous merchant family with names like Gertrude and Seabury – shares its more unsavory history with you. On a candlelight tour of the house The Times calls “Manhattan’s most haunted,” hear tales of its paranormal history and take in scenes of mid-19th century death and mourning. Good times. Tours run from 6-10PM (also on 10/30).
HIGH CAMP: Guilty pleasure "Labyrinth" is like a time capsule of ’80s cheese, from David Bowie's Tina Turner wig, to a very (very) young Jennifer Connelly, whose Oscar-winning future could never be gleaned from this performance. Part of 92YTribeca's Sing-Along series and Fright Fest series, this screening of Jim Henson’s cult classic doubles as a costume party for added awesomeness. 10PM.
