Mwuhahahaha! New Yorkers, you're about to get scared out of your mind!
New York's first and most terrifying haunted house, NIGHTMARE, has tapped award-winning Hollywood film composer Chris Thomas to fill its house with music this year, turning this year's installment, NIGHTMARE: KILLERS2 into a veritable horror movie with mood music, emotional cues, and crescendos that support a climax. It is the first time a New York haunted house will be able to boast an original score!
Yikes! Scary! Just like we like it!
"When was the last time you went to a movie or theatre and there wasn't an original score?" asked producer Steve Kopelman. "This is an idea long past due in the haunted house industry and we are proud to be partnering with Chris to provide the first original score for a NYC haunted house. Over the past 10 years we have prided ourselves on innovation and believe this is another way to better our patron's experience."
So KILLERS2 is taking things up a notch or "2." The musical score will add to the creepy terror and awesomeness.
Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year, not Christmas.
Thomas recently scored Cadaver, starring Kathy Bates.
KILLERS2 is a horrifying, immersive haunted house experience about our obsession and fascination with serial killers both real and fictional. KILLERS2 is the follow-up to last year's widely talked about, highly successful and critically acclaimed KILLERS installment and will run through November 2, 2012 at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, 107 Suffolk Street between Rivington and Delancey on Manhattan's Lower East Side.
This year, visitors navigating the tormenting labyrinth of NIGHTMARE: KILLERS2 will encounter various psychopaths, including Harrison Graham, Aileen Wournos, and Charles Manson - among others - who are neither glorified or romanticized – but rather presented for what they are...scary as hell! Focusing on both the perpetrators and their victims, both historical and contemporary, KILLERS2 sets out to prove that the most haunting experiences are those that are real. There is nothing more frightening than the monsters that walk among us.
