  1. Tearing Down Walls

    What if there were no walls defining scenes?
    A huge warehouse, pitch black.
    Lights in each scene ONLY on the props/actors.

    With planning, scenes could be far apart, paths could double back.

  5. Into the Silents

    2020 looms large on the horizon and many of the first motion pictures ever made are now either over or approaching a century old.

    With a century of movies to choose from, and so many of those being modern horror, why should modern haunters watch horror (or other movies) from the silent era?
