A Super Horror/ Halloween Inspiration film
12 April 2018 | by leylahavokSee all my reviews

Finally a film I can get inspired and love watching over and over again. Haunters: The Art of Scare is truly a delight for upcoming Haunt Owners, Actors and HorrorFanatics alike. This film is amazingly awesome, VERY EDUCATIONAL and brings you back to when you were a kid and going into your first Haunt for the first time. I absolutely enjoyed this movie from the beginning to end and cannot wait to see more from this director. Truly inspiring.
