Skull Kingdom 2008 Video

Our favorite new attraction from last Halloween was Skull Kingdom in Woodland Hills, an atmospheric haunted house that recaptured much of the feel of the Seaside Haunt in Venture (hardly a surprise, since it was put on by the same people). It was very atmospheric; there were some good sets that gave an impression of being within an actual location, not just a mock-up; plus, there was a strategic use of darkness – no doubt intended to hide budgetary shortcomings but cleverly employed to enhance apprehension as you manuvered through the corridors inhabited by lurking ghouls.

Unfortunately, we did not manage to get our video of this excellent haunt posted last October, but now we offer this reminder of how good Skull Kingdom was.
