Jon Schnitzer’s insanely absorbing 2017 documentary “Haunters: The Art of the Scare” takes a fascinating look at the people behind both traditional and extreme haunts.
“Haunters” interviews some of the biggest names in horror including John Murdy, creative director of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood, and Jason Blum, founder of Blumhouse Productions, as well as some of the most controversial including Russ McKamey of McKamey Manor.
McKamey Manor, known for being the most extreme haunt, was not only notorious for waterboarding, shaving heads and dragging people, but also for not having a safe word.
Post “Haunters” a safe word has been put into place in case you decide that voluntary torture is not your cup of tea.
Watch “Haunters: The Art of the Scare” on Netflix.
