Instead of simply mourning those Halloween haunts that will not be in operation during Halloween 2013, we decided to indulge in a little nostalgia, beginning with this video walk through the 2012 Theatre 68 Haunted House. Fortunately, this one is not gone for good: the proprietors are taking a year off because they have moved to a new, temporary venue that will not accommodate their haunted house, but they plan to find a permanent location next year, where hopefully they can resurrect their annual Halloween event - one of our favorites in Los Angeles.
As you can see from the video, The Theatre 68 Haunted House pioneered many techniques that are becoming common at more high-priced haunts: a more theatrical experience, with actors interacting with you as you walk through, making you feel like part of the action as little vignettes unfold before your eyes.
