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
wow, very good documentary at New zealand !
Surprised I’d never heard of this! Quirky, heartwarming, interesting peek into what looks like a fantastic haunt. Definitely worth a watch for fans of haunted attractions and documentaries. Not scary at all, but that’s not the purpose of this film.
Was a pretty great movie wasn't scary (or meant to be), it's more of BTS type of movie than a documentary on they make a haunted house so don't expect a movie that follows the whole process of how they make this haunted house. Since it'S kind of a BTS they talk a lot about the people that work there and a bit about the place where it takes place, which is great, but at times they do have some "social messages" that are brought in in a not so organic way. The way they bring them in and sometime the timing can make the pacing of the movie seems slow at time. TL;DR Overall great movie but has pacing issues with their "social messages"
Great watch for anyone fascinated by haunts and the people that make them great.
Not scary. A great documentary about people. Some humor, especially the "code brown." A little trippy sometimes. Worth a watch.
