Something is rotten in the town of Inglenook.

Sour milk, unread post, dogs howling day and night, the locals are vanishing...seemingly into thin air.

As fear haunts the remaining few, a young scientist is disturbed by a noise underground.

It’s the sound of terror, and it’s getting louder.

The Body Snatcher is an unnerving experience inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s hair-raising horror and Stephen Mallatratts The Woman In Black : live action, music and storytelling combine in a tale of mystery, morality, and science unhinged.

No body is safe...
