Haunters Release Details:
HAUNTERS: THE ART OF THE SCARE just celebrated its World Premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin. HAUNTERS: THE ART OF THE SCARE features interviews with notable horror filmmaker Jason Blum (producer of The Purge, Insidious, Split, Get Out), Sylvia and Jen Soska (American Mary & GSN’s “HELLEVATOR”), Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare), and the creators of the most popular and controversial haunts in the world. This documentary also has a killer soundtrack with songs from Dead Man’s Bones (Ryan Gosling and Zach Shields, who’s also from the band Night Things and co-writer of the films Krampus and the upcoming Godzilla), Emptyset, Jonathan Snipes (Room 237 and The Nightmare), Alexander Burke (has recorded with Fiona Apple, David Lynch, and Mr. Little Jeans), and Neil Baldock (recorded with Kanye West, Radiohead, and Wilco).

Look for it on Digital and Blu-ray on October 3, 2017!

This documentary takes you behind-the-screams with the people who sacrifice everything to create the most popular and polarizing haunted houses for Halloween – from boo-scare mazes to a controversial new subculture of extreme terror experiences. What started as a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign (backed by Neil Patrick Harris) became a 4-year journey for director Jon Schnitzer to bring audiences deeper into the Halloween subculture than ever before with unprecedented access. HAUNTERS: The Art of the Scare also uncovers how Halloween, haunts, and horror have always thrived during times of chaos, political uncertainty, and war because people use horror and haunts as a form of therapy or “scare-apy” to confront their worst fears. But how far is too far?
