I love this as an idea for a documentary. The people behind BEST WORST MOVIE, the TROLL 2 documentary, want to make a film on the best homemade haunted houses around the country and the people behind them. These people work the whole year to make something fun for the kids and it takes a special kind of devotion (or insanity, depending on how you look at it) to do this year after year. And if you're one of those people, you might wind up in a documentary! The filmmakers are looking for that extra-special something and if you've got what it takes you can apply to be in the film. Here's the press release:
