Haunt Movies to Get You in the Halloween Mood

Haunted houses are kind of a thing in my family. My mom, my brother, and myself have all worked in one, at some point. That’s where my best friend and I became friends, many years ago. I love Halloween events like Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando. I’ve been a scareactor, makeup artist, and worked on sets.

Unfortunately, while I did get to tour this house, I couldn’t take any behind the scenes pictures because the photo policy with the IP houses just changed. However, I do have a little bit of insight to share.
