We catch up with Jon Schnitzer, director of Haunters: The Art of the Scare, which presents two competing visions for haunted attractions in America. There’s the traditional boo-scare style of haunt as seen in the guise of Shar Meyer, legendary scare actress, and haunt designer Donald Julson; and then the new “extreme” vision exemplified by Russ McKamey of the McKamey Manor in San Diego. We talk about what went into this documentary and the many choices a documentarian makes.
