JFI Productions Information

creep la logoJFI Productions entered the Halloween immersive, interactive theatrical in 2015 with Creep LA, which made a point of eschewing traditional Halloween horrors in favor of exploiting less fantastical fears. The obvious point of comparison was Delusion: A Haunted Play, but Creep LA aimed for a more subtle brand of creepy scares, minus the Hollywood-movie-style stunt work and effects. Read our review of Creep LA’s 2017 production, based on Lore, the Amazon streaming series and its source material, Aaron Mahnke’s podcast.

After staging different versions of Creep LA for a few years, JFI Productions gradually branched out into other productions, some of them taking place outside the Halloween season, such as 2017’s The Willows, which sold out 300 performances in the Spring of 2017.
