It's remarkable!
30 January 2018 | by btrflygirlSee all my reviews

Just WOW! This is a remarkable documentary that explores the blood, sweat and tears that goes into crafting a "perfect" haunt and the psychology behind our need or want to be scared. You'll see the extreme side to the haunting community. This ain't your Disneyland Haunted Mansion! So buckle up and be prepared for the ride! You'll laugh, you'll cry and you might get enraged too.

BRAVO to it's creator and filmmaker Jon Schnitzer! It's a great piece of work!

And it's completely worth the watch to hear legendary haunter Shar Mayers talk about her history in the industry and know her story. What an awesome individual!
