Indie Horror Scream Queen Tristan Risk to Appear in "Foolish Mortals: A Haunted Mansion Documentary"


HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA (May 23, 2016) - Monster Movie Media and Octacle are proud to announce the addition of Indie Scream Queen Tristan Risk to the list of amazing Haunted Mansion fans scheduled to appear in “Foolish Mortals: A Haunted Mansion Documentary.” Tristan Risk is a talented actress and performer who is known for her work in such horror films as “American Mary” and “The Editor.”    

Tristan Risk is excited to be involved in the documentary as she is a huge fan of the Haunted Mansion as it’s been an inspiration to her in different facets of her career.  Director James H. Carter II states “We are very excited to explore what influence the Haunted Mansion has had on Ms. Risk as an actress in horror films as well as a sideshow performer.” 

Tristan Risk joins the ever growing list of amazing talent that includes directors Axelle Carolyn, Mike Mendez, Spooky Dan Walker, and William Butler along with Theme Park Adventures founder Rick West

“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.  For more information on “Foolish Mortals: A Haunted Mansion documentary, please visit their Kickstarter to donate and share as well as their website
