"The Haunted Mansion is a singular experience in the world of Disney. Simultaneously frightening and hilarious, this attraction has magnetized audiences for decades and is synonymous with first in class haunted attraction experience.
What draws so many to Walt’s spooky little house on the hill, with its neat edges and perfectly polished facade? Why are so many people enchanted with the mystery and appeal of a haunted attraction that happens to live in the happiest places on Earth?
Our film, “Foolish Mortals” is an examination of the fan culture surrounding Disney’s Haunted Mansion attraction. We are digging into the lives, creative work and experiences of the countless masses who have reached out to share their interest in our mutual obsession, looking for the reasons they’re in love and unearthing the ghostly materials within.
This film is unique in many ways. The film’s creators are veteran producers of content, James H. Carter II (*Director and host of the Creepy Kingdom Podcast) and Ryan Grulich (Producer) bring a wealth of production value and a true affinity for the IP to the table. We are not shooting this film on Disney property, or attempting to dig up old corpses or expose trade secrets. We love the Haunted Mansion and want to preserve and project it’s intimacy within the fan culture. We are collaborating with industry partners and Haunted Mansion based creatives worldwide to craft a one of a kind experience that will bring you deeper into the appeal of the attraction than ever before."
