The 17th Door Opens to a Haunted Prison

Published

on

Prison can be a scary place, but the people behind The 17th Door haunted attraction are looking to make it a lot scarier for Halloween! Read on for the details, and if you’re in or near Fullerton, California, start making your plans to attend now!

From the Press Release:
The West Fullerton Shopping Center is now home to one of the scariest, most intense, and most interactive haunted houses in the country. The 26,000 guests who attended The 17th Door last Halloween season will be thrilled to learn the creators have an all-new prison maze and a virtual reality experience (as an add-on) in store for 2017. This year’s haunt will be larger and longer (over 35 minutes), more intense, and more suspenseful with a new theme, new location, all-new rooms, and more innovative scares!

Will you be able to make it through all 35 minutes of terror and escape all 17 doors? Or will you cry “Mercy?”

The Story:
And so it continues… Our Paula has committed a heinous crime, and it is now time to pay the price. A lengthy sentence to be served in the most gruesome and hellish of prisons. Much worse than the troubled and miserable life of our depressed college sophomore.

Welcome to Perpetuum Penitentiary, a place of darkness born only in nightmares. For within these stone walls, you will meet true suffering and despair. Prayers for mercy unanswered. Evil pervading its every space. Paula’s space. This detour through hell is her new reality. The question is… will it be yours?

The sadistic warden has agreed to unsupervised visitation. Go cautiously, one-by-one, as the residents of Perpetuum have no concept of confinement and no intentions of behaving. And they are thirsty, longing for the smell and taste of new blood. No one escapes. Your only hope is to survive. Are you scared? You will be.

“I’m very excited about the new theme this year,” said The 17th Door co-owner Heather Luther. “All-new sets. New characters. New innovations. New scares. New everything! Guests can expect things to be very very different, and of course they should expect the unexpected!”

Pre-sale tickets for this year’s season are now available online at the17thdoor.com. Act fast because they sell out quickly!

The 17th Door is designed for a mature audience, preferably 16 years of age and older, as guests will find themselves in intense situations. All guests must still sign a liability waiver, and the actors are allowed to touch guests. At any point during the haunted house experience, guests may use the safe word “Mercy” to be escorted out. They will be given the option to rejoin their group in the next room or leave the haunt entirely.

The 17th Door 2017 Haunt Experience Dates:
September 22-23 and 29-30
October 1, 5-8, 12-15, 18-22, 24-31

Location:
1851 W. Orangethorpe Ave., Fullerton, CA 92833. Near the corner of Brookhurst St. and W. Orangethorpe Ave., just north of the 91 & 5 freeways (exit Brookhurst). Same building as The 99 Cent Store. Park & enter in the back of the building.

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

Published

on

We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

Published

on

Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
