The House On Cold Hill: Review

Theatre Review

From the number 1 best-selling author Peter James, the spine-chilling, supernatural thriller The House On Cold Hill is at the Opera House Manchester now and me and my husband saw it last night at the press night performance.

The Harcourt family move into the house of their dreams; a house that has been empty for the last forty years. However, their dream home quickly turns into the stuff of nightmares as they begin to wonder whether they may not be the only residents at Cold Hill…

I usually see musicals at the theatre so going to watch a thriller seemed strange and I wasn’t too sure what to expect. I do love a good thriller movie so I was looking forward to this at the theatre.

The story follows the Harcourt family as they move into their new home, a very old run-down monastery that they soon found out is rumoured to be haunted. Ollie (Joe McFadden from Strictly), his wife Caro (Rita Simons from Eastenders) and daughter Jade (Persephone Swales-Dawson from Hollyoaks) try to ignore the rumours and plan to make this their ‘forever home.’

Once strange things start happening, the family can’t ignore the rumours anymore……

This wasn’t a traditional ghost story, I loved the modern aspects to the tale. I’m definitely not going to give anything away as I don’t want to ruin it for anyone but I’d never consider the impact of modern technology such as WiFi in an old, haunted house……..

This definitely was a spine-chilling thriller that kept the audience on the edge of their seats.

The House On Cold Hill is showing now at the Opera House Manchester until Saturday 18th May. See here ticket information and booking.
