LA Times discovers immersive Halloween horror

Over at the Los Angeles Times, “game critic” Todd Martens has written a nice article about how interactive theatre is the new thing challenging old-school Halloween haunts by offering a more immersive, involving scare experience.

The funny thing is, I wrote that article two years ago: Immersive Theatre: The Future of Halloween in Los Angeles?

Snark aside, Martens’ article, “How 2 L.A. immersive Halloween horror shows keep changing the way we scare,” is worth reading. As the title suggests, his focus is narrower than mine, restricted to Delusion and Creep LA, both of which are covered in a fair amount of depth, including interviews with creative personnel, Jon Braver and Stephanie Turek.
