Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to fly out to New York City and shoot one of the most unique and intense haunts I’ve ever seen! I say that in all honesty and I’ve seen so many haunts that nothing really shocks or scares me at this point but Killers managed to surprise me in many ways. I realized very early on that this was a lot more than just another haunted house. The sets are very real and built by theater professionals. You’ll immediatly feel like you’ve been transported to a real location when you step into each room. Even the street where Jack the Ripper lurks, looks and feels like a real alley from Victorian London! The haunt has come under some controversy due to its theme of “Serial Killers” but it doesn’t glamorize these people in any way. In fact several of the scenes are outright chilling. The Jeffrey Dahmer scene is more or less a monologue that sent a shiver up my spine. The Gacy scene has to be seen to be believed but you’ll likely feel like you need a shower after walking through it. Overall I was very surprised at the realism of the haunt and thats what made it stand out over so many others I’ve seen. Its scary, its real, and it doesn’t pull any punches.
I took many many photos while I was there and i have them shared on my Flickr account for all to see. One of my photos has even appeared in both the Print and Online Editions of The New York Times! See all the photos here!
