Behind the Screams

Sinister Pointe

Produced by haunt master Jeff Schiefelbein, this haunted attraction company began as a single event, and has since become a growing name developing attractions nationwide and beyond.

splogoAlong with the ongoing Sinister Pointe Haunted Attraction in Brea, California, they have produced the Winchester Mystery House's Fright Nights, Long Beach's Queen Mary's Dark Harbor, popular haunts based on the Silent Hill and Saw franchises, The Haunting, Realm of Darkness, Fear and Condemned. They also spearheaded the ground-breaking Horrorwood Haunted Theater at the Jenfusun Fancyworld amusement park in Taiwan, one of the first Western-style haunted attractions in Asia.

One of Sinister Pointe's unique approaches is its emphasis on audience interaction. The debut of our Bloody Mary experience brings this new and immersive approach to the Seattle area for the first time.

Directed by Erik Tavares, this event is the latest in a series of theatrical-style haunts which began with The House of Fear and the original Dark Hollow Outdoor Haunted Attraction. They also assisted in the launch of Sammamish's popular Nightmare at Beaver Lake, and just finished a successful five-year run of Maple Valley's Dark Hollow Haunted Forest.

Team members include former Disneyland designers, makeup artists, stage managers, special event gurus and others with a collective love of haunting.


Sideshow Monkey

Much of the artwork you will see this season comes from the multi-talented (and slightly twisted) artist and animator David Hartman. He is an Emmy Award-nominated director, producer, illustrator and character designer.

sslogoHartman's animated directorial credits include TRANSFORMERS PRIME, My Friends Tigger & Pooh, Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles, Astro Boy, Jackie Chan Adventures, the animated Godzilla and many more.

Beyond animation, Hartman directed two music videos for rock musician Rob Zombie, served as a visual effects supervisor for the cult film Bubba Ho-Tep, an animator and vfx artist for the film John Dies at the End and production consultant for Showtime's Masters of Horror series. He is also an award-winning illustrator whose artwork graces numerous comic books, magazines and music albums covers.


ghoulA Volunteer Effort

A seasonal special event is much like community theater - it relies upon the talent of local actors, makeup artists, and other creative types.

Even better, this event strives to improve the community through supporting non-profit groups and local charities.

Scaring people AND serving the community? It's win/win!
