“Haunters” Is the Most Terrifying Movie Ever Made
There are a lot of films that promise terror. Haunters: The Art of the Scare shows you real terror.
As someone who has done haunted interactive theater for years, I know what it takes to get someone to real terror. I’m used to seeing what it takes to get people to pee on themselves, how far you have to go before paying guests beg to be released from the experience.
The difference is that the haunted attractions that I’ve done have always had an “off” switch. You could get out anytime you wanted.
Enter Russ McKamey and McKamey Manor, where once you go in, you can’t leave until they say you can leave. The film shows Russ McKamey filming his terrorized guests to have footage for his popular YouTube videos. (Which I won’t link to because I don’t want to give him the page views.)
If you haven’t been up close and personal with people’s fears, you may not know where the line is. Seeing McKamey willfully and gleefully cross it in this documentary is utterly terrifying.
Haunters will be released on digital, Blu-Ray and DVD on October 3
