I've seen a lot of haunters losing their minds over haunts that they deem to be far too extreme.  They're offended that there's a haunt that's for adults only with intense sexuality and nudity.  They're put off that a haunt in New York actually involves the customer in the scenes and gives them a fairly terrifying or psychologically abusive experience. Their jumping on a band wagon to condemn a haunted house for using real serial killers in Chicago as part of their event.  Something that's been done over and over again in haunts all over the country for decades. While I'm not sold on the more extreme haunts where people are literally tortured by actors, I'm all for them being in operation and out there.  Its not my cup of tea but obviously it is for some.  These are events that do lower numbers and have, no doubt, lots of legal waivers they make...

A while back I made a video for Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare and it finally dropped to the public yesterday.  Today its everywhere and its kind of overwhelming!  Its on Rob Zombie's website among many others and as of this post its at nearly 14,000 views in less than 24 hours.  Seeing something I worked on getting this type of publicity is pretty trippy.  For something that is mostly pieced together with clips from Rob's movies and stuff I've shot myself its came out well!  I'm flying out next month to shoot the actual haunt so there will be more photos and videos of this event coming by October 13th!  So stay tuned for that in the coming weeks! httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVkbrk5mTvU...

LAHH is one of the best hayrides I've seen! The sets are amazing and the actors do a phenomenal job of scaring the crap out of the hayride groups. My favorite scene was the satanic church complete with satan and cultists that come to life and chase after you! LAHH is also one of the only haunts I've experienced that uses a custom soundtrack created by a professional composer name Chris Thomas. The music perfectly fits with the action of the scenes and just gives it that extra something that really pushed it over the top for me! I highly recommend the attraction if your out...
