Akira Oni is back with a terrifying and exhilarating drag preshow for Hellraiser, hosted virtually on Twitch!
The preshow is free, but a virtual tip of $10 is encouraged to support performers, and you'll need to stream or rent the film on your own.
Paired with a new horror film every month, Haus of Oni will terrify and exhilarate you. With a new diverse cast each month, and a mission to showcase alternative drag, this show aims to be inclusive and celebratory of unapologetic queer art. Join us for our horror drag preshow, and watch carefully curated horror films with us.
Prepare to travel beyond dreams and nightmares, into the realm of darkness and the furnaces of Hell as imagined by celebrated maestro of the macabre, Clive Barker. When journeyman Frank (Sean Chapman) purchases a mysterious puzzle box while visiting an exotic country he returns home to England and unwittingly unlocks a door to hell, dragged into a frightening dimension whose evil inhabitants, known as Cenobites, test his appetite for pleasure and tolerance for pain - literally tearing him apart in the process. Escaping his sado-masochistic hell, Frank returns to his old household and begins an insidious resurrection that will not only draw the life and soul of everyone around him but open a portal for Pinhead (Doug Bradley) and his infernal Cenobites to wreak bloody havoc on an unsuspecting world.
