On July 27th and 28th, LVCRFT & Christopher Young will debut their ground-breaking immersive audio experience, Scream Warriors, exclusively at the preeminent Halloween and Horror Convention, Midsummer Scream, in Long Beach, California. Those convention-goers brave enough will be treated to an approximately 10-minute-long first-of-its-kind immersive audio experience, set in complete darkness, within the kill room walls of a psychopathic madman. Those lucky enough might even escape! 


In 2022, award-winning, spooky-hitmakers, LVCRFT (Hocus Pocus 2, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, 31 Nights of Halloween), synonymous with their new-Halloween classic “Skeleton Sam”, and legendary film composer Christopher Young (Hellraiser, Nightmare On Elm Street II, Sinister) set out to create ‘the most terrifying album ever made’. Together, they succeeded in creating Scream Warriors, a musical masterpiece that  many have called “the soundtrack to a horror movie that hasn’t been made yet.” 


With this spine-tingling goosebumps-inducing album in hand, LVCRFT and Young partnered with Dolby Labs to bring the scariness to life in an unprecedented way, plunging listeners into an Atmos powered immersive audio world like never before. This innovative journey in 2022 culminated in a one-night-only album listening experience at the Dolby Theatre, set in complete darkness, surrounding the audience with nightmarish soundscapes, left to battle the depths of only their imaginations. 


Now, LVCRFT and Christopher Young have transformed their one-night-only event into an exclusive, first-of-its-kind immersive audio experience, only at Midsummer Scream. It promises to be a heart-pounding adventure where every sense is immersed into the depths of terror in ways never HEARD before. 

In partnership with Dolby Labs, with visuals by Strangeloop Studios powered by the 4Cast MVP Multimedia Visual Performer. Attendees will be immersed inside an 18-speaker 9.1.6 Dolby Atmos array transporting them into a new terrifying world.


“The result speaks for itself: The record bangs but also bristles as tracks oscillate from dark and strobe-y pop numbers that you’d imagine Vampires raging to in a warehouse, to scene-setting, expository cuts full of slithering slicing synths, out of tune piano, and demonic, indecipherable whisperings.” - Nylon Magazine
