Film Info

On the grounds of a former psychiatric hospital, a close-knit community of horror performers transform their lives at the most successful haunted attraction in the Southern Hemisphere. In this family, scaring is caring.

“… thoroughly enjoyable … the director makes an intriguing choice of visualizing dreams had by some of the interview subjects … Spookers is a celebration of strangeness.” — Richard Kuipers, Variety

“But at the film’s heart is the performers’ personal stories about their own struggles – with health, self-confidence, relationships, sexuality, mental illness – and the catharsis and connections they’ve found in their work.” – The Guardian

Additional Info

Attended by art director Teresa Peters.

Followed by the festival’s closing night reception.
