Excited to see Haunted Overload will be featured!

As am I. I'm not so crazy about the idea of the Extreme Haunts being featured so prominently. Though I suppose if it's a large subculture of the Haunted Attraction world that it should be discussed, but the trailer makes it seem like the primary focus of the film.

Has anyone partook in that kind of thing? I like my Haunted Attraction all about the atmosphere and with as little human contact as possible... so this would really be surreal to me.

YES. I want to see this for sure.

On a side note, I would like to experience one of the"extreme" haunts. I have watched videos on them and yeah, it looks rough, but I think the experience would be CRAZY.

I have been told by my wife that I'm not right in the head. :D

Yeah, in the same sense that not all horror movies are Halloween movies, productions like McKamey, to me, are on the other side of the venn diagram. As for trying it.. never felt the urge to taste my vomit twice.

Rot said...

It'd be fun to see that venn diagram.

I suppose I'm closer to Rot's way of thinking. I'd rather be moved on the inside, transported to another place mentally than physically moved. A walk deep into a wood, alone at dusk lures me more than a packed roller coaster ride (or haunt) with a bunch of screaming people. But there's a place for both at Halloween, making something for everyone.

Yeah the extreme haunt thing is not up my alley . There's one down here that a neighbor has done. Thrown in a wheel chair and yelled at. My kind of haunt focuses on lingering. Able to soak up atmosphere and appreciate the work put into props. If an actor came out, I could look at details of their makeup,costume.

Dag man...i really think they're going for that Rob Zombie, in your face, hot sticky kinda horror. he has influenced so much with that dirty warm style of his. hey, i'm totally down for the people that dig that kinda thing. it's NOT for me tho. i don't like people getting inside my bubble. i don't want to be touched or manhandled & mind you, i don't want to do that to other people either. MY Halloween comes from a different place. everyone has their own Halloween Country & that's great!!!. : )

I could never go to one of those extreme haunts because I'd become violent. No question.

This is just me, but I really don't dig these extreme "haunts". Obviously, I'm more of an atmospheric haunter so haunted attractions where you walk through and get scared by cast members isn't really my thing as it is, but I do have an appreciation for them. There's at least a lot of thought, design, and story-telling put into them. But these extreme "haunts" are just something else entirely - they aren't really about any haunt. I mean give them any creepy title you want and theme it how you like, they all end up being about person on person interaction, made to be as horrific and as negative as possible. I guess I like haunts that let the art, and the creepiness within that art speak for itself. With these extreme haunts, there's no real element of art, to me (unless you're like a serial killer and torture is an art to you, haha). Also there's no homage to Halloween itself (crucial for me personally). It just seems to be people tormenting other people. I guess for this reason it's frustrating to me that they are being considered haunters - just seems like it's so far from what we, and other haunters, are interested in or do...

seems like everything becomes a fetish of some sort. that movie, The Houses October Built, really kinda said it all & very well. scary what people will do & let happen to themselves, when they just can't find...enough. so freaky. that film really cast a gloom over me that stayed with me lonnnnnng after watching it. i guess it did it's job then.

honestly..even putting extremes aside. even with just the large & beautiful haunts, it's just not my cup of tea. no disrespect meant. it's me. i totally appreciate the beauty & mastership of those haunts!! but, i just want a crisp autumn night, on a stoop or porch, some rubber skelly's movin in the wind & a cold beer with some friends. that's a jackpot for me.

Well, I got excited about this until I saw the focus on the extreme "haunted houses." Those can, unequivocally, fuck off. I would love to see them all shut down permanently.

If you want to be an extreme haunted house fine, but don't give me this faux torture porn bullshit. The most extreme one that I've ever seen/heard of that you could STILL actually call a haunted house and not some sick fuck's wank material, was called House of Shock in New Orleans. They pushed a lot of boundaries but you could still call them an actual Halloween haunted house.

This McKamey Manor and the like are garbage. Pure, complete garbage.

Simulating drowning is also called waterboarding, which is used to torture people, you stupid fuck.

Goddammit this stuff pisses me off.
