REVIEW: MURDER HOUSE PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS TRICK ‘R TREAT
Murder House Productions is a Thousand Oaks home haunt created by actors Aurora Persichetti and Kyle Warner. This year they have brought the 2007 cult classic Trick ‘r Treat to life in a multiple room walkthrough maze built out of the garage of Persichetti’s family home.
As we waited in line, we were surrounded by a candy scented fog while melancholy music played in the background. As the fog parted, we saw a figure slowly lurking towards us. Our eyes settled on Sam, the demonic and mischievous protagonist of the epic cult movie Trick ‘r Treat. As Sam crept around us, we were astonished by how real he looked. He carried with him the half bitten jack o’ lantern lollipop, with which he slowly threatened everyone in line. This scaractor was absolutely perfect and offered a good omen of the quality of work which awaited us inside the maze.
The creators have put an incredible amount of imagination and work into this haunt. Once you know that Persichetti works in Universal’s Walking Dead attraction, you get an insight into the background and knowledge behind this maze. The Horror Nights influence can be noticed immediately in the outside decor which includes official signage using the AHS font and a replica of Universal’s Rules and Regulations. No stone has been left unturned as they bring to life incredible props, dazzling full moons, and professional lighting to transport you inside the world of Trick ‘r Treat. They even recreated Sam’s finale room with the detailed touch of perfectly matching the handwriting on the wall. It’s easy to be left awestruck when you realize that they have somehow turned a suburban garage into a million dollar maze.
The detail and quality of work in this haunt is stunning and will make you feel like you have been magically absorbed into the world of Trick ‘r Treat. They are only open for two more nights so please take the time to trek out to Thousand Oaks and enjoy this labor of love. I’m very excited to see what the future holds for these young actors and their very talented bag of halloween tricks.
