HAUNTERS - The Movie

"A life-long fan of Halloween and all things horror, Jon Schnitzer (co-owner of The Brain Factory & HAUNTERS Director/Producer) was inspired to document the world of haunting as it becomes increasingly mainstream and spawns a whole new wave of extreme - sometimes controversial full-contact - entertainment.  And, he was curious to explore what is driving the boom in demand for the wild spectrum of interactive horror experiences that have proliferated in recent years.
Over the last year, we gained exclusive access to some of the most popular, theatrical and infamous haunts in America - like Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights, Knott’s Scary Farm, Delusion, Blackout and McKamey Manor, to name just a few.  We also have shot hundreds of hours of behind-the-scenes and personal footage of a fascinating cast of characters, including professional and home-haunters, their families, the monsters and the fans who love them. If you're one of the 32+ million Americans who will attend a haunted house this year, we know you will appreciate the passion and professionalism that have gone into making HAUNTERS The Movie!"

Old Town Graveyard

Some wonderfully atmospheric shots of the Old Town Graveyard in Medina, OH, taken by Highbury at the Highbury Cemetery blog. Medina is my hometown; this brings back a lot of memories. Go check out Highbury's awesome blog, and tell him HalloweeNut sent you!

"VOODOO" at Knott's Scary Farm 2014

I love this. Having always enjoyed enjoyed the dark side of New Orleans (vampires, graveyards, zombies, voodoo, murder, etc.) I love seeing such a great maze dedicated to it as a theme; especially because of it's wonderful design (the BEAUTIFUL facade, and the indoor swamp Knott's grew for the haunt), but also because their are multiple pathways. Superb.

Ghost in the Window

Whenever I'm able to have my own haunt, I will most certainly have a Pepper's Ghost somewhere in the haunt:

A spooky old record from 1969. I'm in a Vincent Price mood.

Starring Vincent Price. Never seen this one before, so I'm looking forward to it. Will be painting some masks while watch the movie; it's going to be a fun night.
