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.

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.

HALOGEN COMPANY’S MISSION
The Halogen Company (thehalogencompany.com) is a Los Angeles based theatre
production company committed to the interactive and immersive theater experience.
Previous works include Almost, Maine, our sold out interactive rendition of John Cariani’s classic play as well as Sit Down and Shut Up: A One Woman Immersive Experience discussing female treatment in the workplace in varying professional settings.
We thrive on creating and honoring live theater, merging artists, interacting with a
multitude of inventive outlets and offering resources and tools for actors who crave the
creative hustle. The Halogen Company revels in stories that mine the often forgotten
moments of our lives to celebrate the philosophical and existential gems underneath. We
tilt the scale between original and classic pieces intended for audience interaction and full immersion. The actors vary, the stories differ, the locations change…but we are always sure to bump the lamp.
