I felt so many emotions during this. One of the best documentaries out there.
13 February 2018 | by annakopskySee all my reviews

"Haunters: The Art Of The Scare" had a great trailer that immediately got me pumped to give it a try - and I got so much more from this documentary than I expected! Director Jon Schnitzer put a lot of research, creativity, and soul into this project, and it really paid off. The production quality is on par with other high-budget documentaries I've seen and he interviewed huge names in the haunt industry (like the Creative Director for Universal Halloween Horror Nights and Russ McKamey of the interactive haunt McKamey Manor in California). I became emotionally invested in the people interviewed for this film who have been in the industry for years and are passionate about haunting.

"Haunters" opened my eyes to make me realize the people in these haunts are actual human beings who get hurt while they're on the job, have to balance their own families with their love of Halloween, and that these haunts are affected by real-life tragedies and happenings as well. This is hands-down one of the best documentaries I've ever seen and I recommend it to anyone who's even mildly interested in the world of haunting.
