Scenic Detail and Continuity

I have recently begun to notice a saddening issue with haunted attractions, both the home haunt and the pro haunt variety. This issue is lack of detail and no continuity. Let’s be real folks. Any idiot can buy a bunch of stuff, set it up and call it a haunt. Your theme and continuity pulls your audience into the story you are trying to tell, and the details of the scenes and props trick their minds into accepting it as real. I have seen $30 per person haunts fall flat on their ass because of low detail, badly lit scenery. On the other side of the coin, I’ve seen a guy who built a haunt from recycled material in his garage knock one out of the park because he obsessed over lighting and detail. It is all in how you detail things.

 

Just a little something to think about this morning. Happy Haunting!
