Experience the Doomed Terror Expedition at SXSW

Want to get the full experience of what the characters on AMC's The Terror went through? To kick-off the launch of the haunting, suspenseful drama, AMC is inviting fans in Austin attending South by Southwest (SXSW) to experience the Arctic just as the real-life crew did on their ill-fated expedition back in 1845.

The fully immersive, multi-sensory experience offers guests a first-hand look as a crew member aboard the ship’s disastrous trip through the desolate polar landscape. Guests will feel the bone-chilling air, smell the fear and despair and hear the horrific sounds of men fighting for their survival. SXSW attendees can check out the experience at 300 Colorado Street Lot (3rd Street between Colorado Street and Lavaca Street) and will be open on March 10th and 11th from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The Terror, from executive producers Ridley Scott, David Kajganich, and Soo Hugh, follows a British Royal Naval expedition as they set sail in search of the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope, fear of the unknown and attacks by a mysterious predator, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. The series is speculative fiction based on the lost voyage where more than 120 crew members inexplicably disappeared. Their fate is one of the enduring mysteries of the age of exploration. This epic series features distinctive imagery and landscapes, with a visual quality that is emblematic in scale and scope of a Ridley Scott production.

The 10-episode series stars Jared Harris (The Crown, Mad Men) as Captain Francis Crozier, Tobias Menzies (Outlander) as Captain James Fitzjames, Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones) as Sir John Franklin, Paul Ready (Cuffs) as Dr. Henry Goodsir, Adam Nagaitis (Suffragette) as Cornelius Hickey, Nive Nielsen (The New World) as Lady Silence and Ian Hart (Neverland) as Thomas Blanky.

The Terror begins with a two-hour series premiere on Monday, March 26th at 9PM. Watch the trailer for the first season now.
