Blumhouse of Horrors

An old, abandoned theater in downtown Los Angeles was converted into a high-end haunted house just in time for the Halloween season.  For 30 days, the Variety Arts Center was transformed into the Blumhouse of Horrors which included themes and “horrors” inspired by the motion pictures Insidious and Paranormal Activity.  Blumhouse Productions, the designer and financer of the project, spared no expense creating an elaborate, horrifying haunt that spanned dozens of rooms and an 800-seat theater.  Rooms included actors and an assortment of audio, lighting and prop effects with many hidden controls and sensors to create a frightening interactive experience.  All lighting, audio, props, fog and other effects were programmed and controlled from a central location using our VenueMagic show control system.  We were contracted to provide design consulting and technical support during setup.  We also provided operations management throughout much of the time it was open to the public.

  • 48 channels of audio music and sound fx.
  • 170+ channels of lighting and prop control.
  • Actor controls and sensors for interactivity.
  • Onsite support for installation and programming.
  • Onsite management of show control system when open to the public.
