    Episode 89 – From Creep to The Willows and Beyond Panel from Midsummer Scream

    “From Creep to The Willows and Beyond:JFI Productions” Panel from Midsummer Scream







    In this episode, we present to you the panel that we moderated at this year’s Midsummer Scream. We were lucky enough to share the stage with the JFI (Just Fix It) Productions team. You may recognize that name from such shows as Creep LA and The Willows.







    The JFI team, Justin Fix (Founder), Daniel Montgomery (Writer/Artictic Director), David Ruzicka (Artistic Director), Stephanie Turek (Creative Supervisor/Choreographer), and J.T. Swierczek (Executive Producer/Partnership Director) and we talk about all things JFI…from Creep LA to The Willows and beyond!









    If you weren’t able to make it to Midsummer Scream or if you did and want to listen to the panel again, here you go! Thank you again to everyone who participated, showed up, and asked questions. We wouldn’t have been able to do this without you!









    Also, if you listen through the panel, you may or may not hear a discount code for this year’s “Haus of Creep”. You wouldn’t be a CREEPFAN without it!

    Episode 87 – Interview with “Delusion” creator Jon Braver

    Interview with “Delusion” creator Jon Braver

    Since 2011, “Delusion” has become a staple of the Los Angeles scene. The interactive theatrical experience has captivated, wowed, and inspired fans and creators alike. In this episode, we sit down with “Delusion” creator Jon Braver and chat about everything from the start of Delusion to the just announced Director’s Cut of “The Blue Blade” and even some fun things like the voices Jon can do, stunt work with Harrison Ford, favorite Jackie Chan movies, how to scare camp counselors, how important gaming is, and how Mike is probably a serial killer. Enjoy this fun, informative, and slightly chaotic interview that has a little something for everyone.

    Episode 86 – The 2018 Haunt Season Wrap Up

    Episode 86 – The 2018 Haunt Season Wrap Up

    In this episode, we wish a fond farewell to the 2018 haunt season. We catch up on all the things we’ve done in the last episode including Mike’s trip back to Boston to experience “Fall” (that’s a season!). Before that trip, we see the last Dirty Tricks of the year with the New Bad Boys of a Magic. Russell gets stranded on Boney Island and is saved and escorted out by a Los Angeles Haunted Hayride. We return to Theatre Macabre before they close their curtains. While half of My Haunt Life is on the other coast, Russell is able to see Force of Nature Productions “Fallen Saints”, then visits the world’s tiniest haunted house at Starmakers Costumes, and is able to attend some home haunts including Rotten Apple 907, The Farm, and Van Oaks Cemetery. If that wasn’t enough, he then is able to escape from Reality X, visits the mausoleum with Wicked Lit, heads to “Kansas” to see some familiar faces with Chapter 7: The Heart from the Speakeasy Society, then gets his 70’s fix on with Safehouse ’77. If that wasn’t enough, he talks about his second trips through Creep LA and Delusion: The Blue Blade. Meanwhile, back in the crisp Autumn air, Mike is able to visit Demented FX as well as a production of Sleepy Hollow at his favorite field trip spot as a kid, Ol’ Sturbridge Village.

    Episode 84 – Interview with Miasma Creator Justin Brink

    Episode 84 – Interview with Miasma Creator Justin Brink

    Interview with Miasma Creator Justin Brink

    Miasma: Into Great Silence broke open the 2018 haunt season early in the Midwest. Based in Chicago, this immersive terror experience has spent the last few years building a solid reputation for intense dramatic sequences, surreal mood shifts and incorporating extreme haunt elements. Creator Justin Brink and his team created an adrenaline-laced robbery-gone-wrong narrative that forced the patrons to face some squirm inducing decisions.

    Russell first attended Miasma in 2016 and returned this year. However, he didn’t return as a patron. Instead he stepped behind the scenes and into the darkness to become part of the crew and to assist in the terror.

    Afterwards, he sat down with Justin to ask a few questions. This quick interview covers the journey to this year’s show and explores the dynamics of forming a trusted team of players that can unite to present intensely dark, challenging shows.

Best source for haunt, immersive theater, and all things creepy!

Love these guys. I’ve had the pleasure of running into them at events they have suggested. They are honest in their reviews and experiences- I genuinely cannot thank them enough for taking me deeper into this world/culture. Mike and Russ, keep doing all that you do!
