Family of Fear follows an eclectic group of artists and "spooks" as they build and work in one of the country's scariest haunted house attractions - the 50,000 square foot Arx Mortis Haunted Attraction in Killen, Alabama. The documentary from director Stephen Lackey will be released on iTunes beginning October 23rd.
Family of Fear Synopsis: Bathed in blood and in search of screams, the members of this "family" don't work at the haunt for money: they work solely for the scares and the support of one another. Their stories are all sadly similar -- many have suffered bullying due to their uniqueness in the small southern towns surrounding Arx Mortis. Others suffer from depression or other challenges and have no real community or family support system to help.
Coming off a season of family struggles and bad reviews they are determined to make a comeback and rediscover what brings them all together, and why they call themselves a haunt family. After all, the family that scares together, stays together in this feature-length documentary that's surprisingly funny, shockingly scary, and meaningfully poignant.
