Damnation – experience the terror of Samuel Pages nightmare!
If you are a scare seeker this is for you! Samuel Page was a blacksmith who worked in the RDS back in the 1830s but it was discovered that he ran a satanic cult from the basement in his home for years, and had been preying on innocent victims to offer sacrifice to his Lord Lucifer. The story goes that Samuel has been coming back to get revenge on the people of Dublin for centuries. A beast in DAMNATION trapped between our world and Hell, he lives a deathly nightmare of horror and evil. Disciples of Page’s cult still follow him today. He is said to gather people from far and wide but the question is… will you be next?
If you are still interested going along to this nightmare Damnation is located in Ring Hall at the RDS, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 so catch an NRC Taxi who will get you there scare free!
