Transforming a century-old barn in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts into an immersive, horrifying haunted house- two Halloweens in a row.
The weekend of Halloween myself and a small group of unbelievably talented individuals gathered at a farm in Shelburne Falls, MA to create two haunted houses. In the same location each year, however, the entire experience and path of the viewer is unique.
How do you make a Haunted House?
In under 48 hours, transforming a century-old barn in rural Massachusetts into a beautifully horrifying experience—two halloweens in a row.
+ A tiny budget + Limitless free labor + Constructing and styling 12-15 rooms, floor to ceiling + Designing costumes, lighting and a soundscape + Curating a complex narrative and brought that sucker to life + Professional actors and directors for rehearsing and directing + An initiation video for a fake cult + Great people who don't freeze to death when drenched in fake blood
