HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA (May 16, 2016) - Monster Movie Media and Octacle are proud to announce the addition of Axelle Carolyn, Mike Mendez, Spooky Dan Walker, William Butler, and Rick West to the list of amazing Haunted Mansion fans scheduled to appear in “Foolish Mortals: A Haunted Mansion Documentary.”
Directors Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate, Tales of Halloween), Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider, Tales of Halloween), Spooky Dan Walker (Slay Belles), and actor/director William Butler (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood) are die-hard Haunted Mansions fans who have incorporated the infamous ride into aspects of their films as well as their personal lives. We are also thrilled to interview Rick West (Theme Park Adventures) who not only is a life-long fan of the Haunted Mansion but had the opportunity to work there in the 80’s.
“Our team is really excited to include such high caliber people from the Horror and Theme Park industries in our film! We are really looking forward to hearing how the Haunted Mansion has influenced and impacted what they do for a living!” says Director James H. Carter II
“Foolish Mortals: A Haunted Mansion Documentary” is an examination of the fan culture surrounding Disney’s Haunted Mansion attraction. Director James H Carter II will be digging into the lives, creative work and experiences of the countless masses who have reached out to share their interest in our mutual obsession, looking for the reasons they’re in love with this attraction while unearthing the ghostly materials within.
The film’s creators are veteran producers of content surrounding the Haunted Mansion. James H. Carter II (Director and host of the Creepy Kingdom Podcast) and Ryan Grulich (Producer) bring a wealth of production value and a true affinity for the IP to the table. Out of respect for the parks, they will not be shooting the film on Disney grounds or attempting to dig up old corpses or expose trade secrets. They love the Haunted Mansion and want to preserve and protect its intimacy within the fan culture. In its place they will be creating an amazing photo realistic 3D render of the mansion and will be featuring it in way never before seen!
Already scheduled to appear in the film is Disney Imagineer Terri Harden, artist Nora See, special effects creator Robert Kurtzman, artist Topher Adam, and ‘Skin Wars’ contestant Butch Bihary. Foolish Mortals has already launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to produce the film and are offering unique backer rewards including a limited edition Haunted Mansion Mystery Box as well as one of a kind sculptures from Terri Harden.
