Directed by Florian Habicht
At Spookers, an enormous haunted house in a shuttered New Zealand mental hospital, a merry band of amateur actors spend their nights scaring the pants off visitors. One night they might be clowns in a creepy carnival, the next night fearsome fairy tale figures. But the brilliance of this delightful documentary goes beyond the ins and outs of haunting, as director Florian Habicht shows how transforming themselves into monsters helps many staff members deal with their own traumas and phobias. Step into a place where fear is a family business - if you dare...A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.
At the southern hemisphere’s largest haunted house, a merry band of haunters do their worst.
Cast: Claudia Aiono, Huia Apiata, Barbara Armstrong
Fantastic documentary. Behind the scenes, some getting to know the people and helping humanize and normalize them at the same time. I definitely recommend this one.
Makes me really miss working in a haunted attraction.
Some really lovely people with some interesting and definitely worthy stories to tell, so I did like it. But as a film it felt a bit unstructured and all-over-the-place, so I did find my attention wavering.
People need to lighten up I enjoyed this doc to see what the actors go though Is amazing no one ever thinks about the fact that they are the ones who bring the haunt to life and make it awesome! I enjoyed the dream sequences and the silly parts it shows more than just the haunt and scares it shows the heart behind it and in my opinion that’s what truly matters! The doc sends a messagesbad that it is Be a freak! Be yourself! You’re beautiful no matter what and life gets better
