Attention All Home Haunters - home haunt documentary

Saw this posted on another message board and thought it would be better suited here.

Read Below:

Hi! My names Zack, and Im one of the producers for an upcoming NBC/Universal TV documentary on people who create home haunts.I spoke to Larry Kirchner once before, but it was a couple months back.

One of the main things were doing at this stage is getting word out to home haunters that might want to potentially participate. The idea is that the two-hour special will showcase people who really love celebrating Halloween through making their unique home haunts. The focus is likely to be specifically on haunters in the northeast US, but if this installment of the show does well, wed be able to do additional installments on home haunts in the central US, the south, the west coast, etc.

Were going to head east to start meeting with potential haunters very soon (Sept 1st!), so if youd consider helping us spread the word by posting on your site or sending this along to your email list, wed be very grateful AND you may help some haunters get some attention via the show. Theres a very short questionnaire that you could link to where interested spook house proprietors can sign up directly:

Many thanks for your time/help, and of course, for keeping the fun of Halloween alive,
Zack Carlson
Producer, Magic Stone Productions

Interesting. I don't understand why he talked to Larry Kirchner. Larry is too far on the pro side of the business.

Zack from Magic Stone Productions is coming Friday to interview me for the documentary. I think it's the preliminary interview and then they come back in October with the crew to shoot.

Congrats to Zombie F, Frightguy, Trishanne and everyone else that made the cut.

Thanks for the well wishes guys! I don't know how much I'm allowed to say about it, but I did sit down for an on-camera interview to talk about my haunt, HauntForum, some of my haunting friends, and also to just talk about some of the ins and outs of being a haunter.

From what I understand, this will be airing on a Universal/NBC owned cable channel sometime in 2012... I would assume close to Halloween.

Just in case you did not hear about this, their are 2 docmentaries about haunting be made right now. The first is,"The Haunting Truth", this will cover Prohaunts and Home Haunts. It might not be available by Halloween. The second is,"Home Made House Of Horrors", this will be all about home Haunters. "Home Made House Of Horrors", is being made for TV and will be on a basic cable channel like SIFI or HGTV, it will probably run more than once in October.

The Haunting Truth (

Homemade House Of Horrors (

Got any updated info please post it.:jol:

I was checking the production companys IMDB page about "Homemade House Of Horrors", and I only saw "American Scream", listed as a 2012 project. "American Scream", might be the name of the finished project.

I will be breaking out the trusty obsolete but still useful VCR to record this lol.

Without giving out details (which i'm sure you can't) Did you guy's get any pay to be in this? Hell i would have did it for free but a little icing on the cake is nice too! lol

Uhm is this the same one where I had to give up my rights to the Johnny Thunder action figures & boxer shorts to NBC? :smoking:

I just saw the commercial for "American Scream" today and got really excited. That show looks like it could be a lot of fun!

And does anyone have Chiller in HD? I have it, but it's in my standard def-only channels. I was going to call Time-Warner to find out.

I perused Chiller's site as well, and "Masters of Horror" looks like it could be pretty good, too.
