A Stress Free Scare

by | Aug 28, 2020


Is the pandemic stressing you out? Try chainsaw wielding zombies and being buried alive.

This weekend, thanks to a Japanese production company, people can take their minds off everything going wrong with the world. That includes lying in a coffin, listening to scary stories and getting poked with fake hands.

The company used to perform at venues such as theme parks, but with Covid-19 putting a stop to most events, they’re getting creative. Last month, they began offering drive-in horror shows that last about 15 minutes.

One coordinator says the shows help people blow off steam and gives them something very different to do. At a cost of about $7.00, it’s an affordable form of entertainment for families.

The company coordinator says the shows are easy to put on and all they need is a small, empty room to hold the coffins–and muffle the screams.

One man said he has lost a lot of business recently and was looking for a way to get rid of the stress. Apparently, lying in a cold, dark box was just what he needed.
