Fright Theater (剧院惊魂; pinyin: jùyuàn jīnghún) is the first Brain Buster exclusive to Dark Ages in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Since the 1.8.0 update, it is featured in the levels Dark Ages - Night 6 and Dark Ages - Night 20.

In this Brain Buster, there are pathways that cannot be planted on. The zombies will walk along the pathways, similar to those in Across the Lawn in Sky City, and also Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum in Plants vs. Zombies Online. The player needs to stop the zombies from getting to the straw (or metal) house at the end of the lawn by using the given plants. Killing a zombie rewards the player with sun, depending on its toughness. He or she can upgrade a plant by tapping it, then tapping the "Upgrade" button, represented by a small icon of an arrow. However, upgrading a plant requires the player to spend a certain amount of sun. The amount of pig heads left (at the bottom left corner of the screen, showing on the straw house) are the amount of lives the player has. If a zombie manages to reach it, regardless of type, the amount decreases by one. Some "boss" zombies with much higher toughness can instantly decrease this amount to zero. If it hits zero, the house collapses, and the player loses the level.

Levels

All levels give a star upon completion for the first time, and two stars for the completion of their Hard Mode variants.

Trivia

  • It is thought to be based partly on the fable The Three Little Pigs.
    • However, the developers once mentioned that it is based on Carrot Fantasy, a Chinese TD game.
      • Coincidentally, it's the same team of artists who drew the Chinese Plants vs. Zombies comics and Carrot Fantasy comics.
      • In Carrot Fantasy 3, the description of a detective skin of the main character Abo says “according to the peas spread all across the crime scene, the criminal had probably gone to the wrong game”, referencing Peashooter from the Plants vs. Zombies series.
    • The Three Little Pigs have been referenced throughout the Plants vs. Zombies series: the first time in Plants vs. Zombies: The Three Little Pigs Fight Back; the second time in the Brickhead Zombie's Almanac entry.
  • The zombies walk sideways in the paths going up and down.
  • Fright Theater, All by Oneself, Air Raid, and Across the Lawn are the only Brain Busters where the firing rates of plants are increased.
  • The Jester Zombies and the Wizard Zombies found in this Brain Buster do not reflect projectiles and transform plants into sheep respectively.
    • These changes could have been made to make the Brain Buster easier. they do become tougher though
  • The pigs are wearing saucepans that are similar to the one Crazy Dave wears.
  • This Brain Buster is the only set of levels where the Wolf Zombies appear.
  • There is a glitch that if the player pauses the game, exits the game and re-enters it after a couple of minutes, when the game is resumed, parts of the pathways will disappear and the player will receive an instant Game Over.
  • These levels are similar to the now defunct facebook game Plants vs. Zombies Adventures.
