Monsters Wanted tells the story of two horror fanatics who risk everything to create a one-of-a-kind haunted attraction. But nightmares don’t come true overnight, and it will take every minute, dollar, and gallon of fake blood they have to bring it all together. Can they endure sabotage, civil war, and a dwindling bank account to successfully scare the pants off their willing victims?
This rare peek into an industry known for its well-guarded secrets and self-proclaimed madness serves as a poignant reminder that there’s nothing more terrifying than following your dreams.
In early 2011, Rich Teachout quit his lucrative job to focus on creating a one-of-a-kind haunted attraction. He and his partner Janel dedicated every moment, ounce of energy, and dollar to making their “Scream Park” a reality. “Monsters Wanted” is the story of their self-proclaimed madness and the industry, culture, and people who share it.
We followed Rich and Janel’s efforts from the first day of building beyond the last day of the season. The result is a one-of-a-kind peek into an industry known for its macabre antics and well guarded secrets.
