I’m Christine, a gal obsessed with haunts, escape rooms and other oddities.

This blog is a passion project of mine. The fact that I personally do all of the reviews here and on my YouTube channel is what really makes TheHauntGirl.com stand out from other review sites. There is no team, just me. Most of my entries are about the west coast since that is where I live, however I also love to travel. In 2018 I was approached by USA Today to be one of their Ten Best List experts for haunted attractions & escape rooms.

Thanks for stopping by!

URBAN DEATH TOUR OF TERROR: Haunted Theatre Attraction! returns for its 7th year to shock and delight audiences with its fun n’ freaky twist on the haunted house, with their exciting new maze and show attraction!  Created & Directed by Zombie Joe and Jana Wimer, Urban Death first shocked audiences in 2005, revealing our deepest fears through a series of wordless, non-linear vignettes and intense physical performances. URBAN DEATH TOUR OF TERROR: Haunted Theatre Attraction! is bold, terrifying, and entirely unique. You are advised to purchase tickets early, as this event consistently sells out. Don’t come alone.

“There may be many spooky stage productions around this Halloween, but few will approach the level of this one.”  Andy Webster, The New York Times

 

“Zombie Joe’s Underground and Halloween go together like Norman Bates and motels, as demonstrated by ‘Urban Death’.” – David C. Nichols, LA Times

 

“Shows like…Zombie Joe’s ‘Urban Death’ hearken back to the Grand Guignol and Artaud’s Theatre of Cruelty, frightening us in new, experimental, and unexpected ways.”  Graham Skipper, Blumhouse.com

 

“Creepy, sad, sinister, and even satirical, ‘Urban Death Tour of Terror’ is not just the same old nightmare.” – Steve Biodrowski, Hollywood Gothique

PLUG IN INITIATIVE: THE AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION
The Halogen Company will be donating part of its proceeds from our production of One
Exit to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. As this show deals with traumatic and sudden deaths, it is our duty as a company to reach out and raise awareness for this issue.
“Deaths of despair”, as they are being called, related to drugs, alcohol, or suicide — claimed the lives of 36,000 American millennials in 2017 alone. Drug overdoses are the most common cause of death. We’ve seen a 47% increase in major depression since 2013,
according to a Blue Cross Blue Shield report. However, one in five don’t seek treatment — likely because they can’t afford it. We at The Halogen Company hope you will join us for a night of immersive theatre, supporting an organization that impacts so many of those we love.

If you cannot join us for our limited engagement of One Exit, we urge to to make a donation to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. And as always we just want to say that you are not alone. Confidential help is available for free. If you do have thoughts of suicide please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. We can only make the mundane strange again, if you are here to enjoy it with us.
