Before I go forward with this review I feel I must point out that I amnot a big fan, nor follower, of Holloween or Horrer culture. Also I amnot the biggest fan of documentaries. With that being said this wasactually a very good film. I seen it at the world premiere held atfandom fest in Louisville Ky. I found myself submerged in the peopledrama, as well as being very intrigued with the underground culturethat surrounds me. Between the nail biting deadlines that thecharacters were trying to make and the education I was receiving in theworld of haunted houses, this film very much caught my attention. Itwas funny, dramatic and even through all the blood, guts and gore, whenit was all said and done managed to be heartwarming. I really enjoyedthis film and have already recommend it to friends.

I love documentaries, this one especially because I'm from Louisville &I support anything that makes Louisville more of a major city. Eventslike Fandom Fest (where the movie was first shown), building placeslike the KFC Yum center & even much smaller things like local Halloweenhaunted houses, all work together to create a wonderful city. Withoutgiving anything about the movie away, it's a documentary that capture'sa moment in peoples life's, where they say 'enough is enough, I'm allin". It's not scary, except for their money issue, there isn't anythinghaunting them or spooky ghosts in the woods. Well worth a watch,especially from people that live in LOUISVILLE. You gotta support yourcity, or your hurting it, by just standing around.

Monsters Wanted covers the subject of the hunted house industrythoroughly. I had no idea it was as big as it was on this independentlevel. Some aspects of this movie were based on bold decisions to makekeeping the best content the top priority. One man's face is blurredout and his voice is distorted. As you watch the movie the reason forthis is clear and only adds to the impact of what is going on. Somefilmmakers would have cut this person out of the documentary, I am gladthey did not.
The most interesting thing that occurred to me was that in many waysthe process of gearing up for the haunted attraction and then operatingit was similar to film production. This documentary also had highproduction value. So I recommend that you answer the call for MonstersWanted.

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.
