we turn laughter

into screams

Dark Thrills Entertainment is your partner when it comes to Halloween and horror-themed entertainment.

Based out of The Netherlands we offer actors, dancers, thrilling circus acts, and fully themed show productions and concepts,
to theme parks, and nightlife.

With an incredible wardrobe of movie-quality costumes, masks, and props we make nightmares come to life!

Dark Thrills Entertainment has provided entertainment to Europe’s premier Halloween-event
‘Halloween Fright Nights’ in Walibi Holland. And our  Circus of Torment production premiered at the largest independent
Halloween event of the Benelux ‘The Horror Zone’. And has since then grown into a action packed 2-hour live-show, that thrills guests on to the edge of their seats!

From small to a big event, we think with our clients to deliver them the right type of screams for their event!
