Brought to you by content creators Channel B4 and Doctored Pictures this three part haunt is now available for streaming on Vimeo Video On Demand.

“We were inspired by cult classics like Ken Russel’s Gothic and The Rocky Horror Picture Show – stylish, eerie and of course, a touch campy,” says Stacy Dawson Stearns, a lead creative on the team (who also inhabits the role of Frau Klunch). Stearns developed persona Klunch in the 90’s, performing in the downtown drag scene of NYC. Stearns states, “Frau is a little demanding, a little dark, and definitely starving for your… attention.”
FEARHOUSE360 features a distinct combination of live action performance, animation, and puppetry. Within the walls of the manor, viewers engage with 24 performers in intimate and shocking encounters. This performance driven environment offers that human touch you experience in a traditional haunted house; even if the humans in question are hungry ghosts, demons, or killer clowns.
The first Stave or chapter is now available for streaming with the following two being released during the lead up to Halloween. Rent the entire series now for $5.99 and stream all three Staves (Plus bonus materials!) throughout the Haunting Season and beyond.
Here’s a trailer from the first episode!
Looks neat! I may need to dig out my (barely used) VR glasses and give this a spin. Can’t really beat it for $5.99. Looks like a fun time!
