“There’s no fucking way!” I kept repeating this aloud at the start of this film, when these crazy bastards who lived through all types of crazy shit – including being buried alive – last time they tried to do one of these extreme haunt tours. This was especially true when they somehow convinced Brandy, the one who experienced the worst of it last time, to come along.
Yet, there they were, on another tour of these crazy immersive haunt experiences… again. Here’s the official synopsis:
Recovering from the trauma of being kidnapped last Halloween by the Blue Skeleton – a group who take “extreme haunt” to another level – five friends decide they must face their fears in order to move on. Heading back out on the road to visit more haunted house attractions, signs of the Blue Skeleton start appearing again and a new terror begins.
So, if you’re unfamiliar with this film series, what you get is a horror narrative woven into a documentary style look at actual extreme haunts. This is an ingenious way to make a film for 2 primary reasons. First, it keeps the budget down, obviously. Second, what I really love about it is that it showcases real talented and hard-working folks who bust their asses to give people great haunt experiences. This process is what is most endearing about the films and what makes them something different in the crowded stable of lower budget horror films.
The film isn’t necessarily something that will change your life, but it’s an enjoyable movie that fans of horror, Halloween, and haunted houses/immersive haunt experiences really can’t miss. It’s available now on most VOD outlets and all major retailers, so grab it today.
