Creep, LA, Awake, Los Angeles, Immersive Theater, Haunt, CA, 2018, CreepLA

This fall, JFI Productions explores what creeps in the darkness of your mind. At night. While you sleep. Everyone dreams. You have to. They say if you don’t dream, you die. Or is it – if you die in your dreams, you die in real life? Everyone’s has a bad dream they just can’t shake – or a dream that’s so real it feels like you’re AWAKE. What happens if your nightmares keep repeating, night after night? And what happens if you’re too afraid to close your eyes at night… afraid of what’s inside your mind?

Audiences in LA will enter the deep twisted darkness of nightmares. And if you get too scared, just remember: It’s all a dream. Right?

Fear Addiction, Factory of Terror, Haunted House, Temecula, Riverside, CA, Halloween

Spade Cooley is jack of all trades. He first made it big in the 1930’s as a bootlegger. When prohibition ended he creeped his way into Los Angeles. Along the road from Chicago he assembled a group of loyal misfits and psychopath’s and a trail of carnage followed in their path. In the wake of the L.A zoot suit riots he set up shop in an old abandoned warehouse outside of Los Angeles and Ace of Spades Transport and Storage was born. Soon after on the morning of January 15 1947 in a vacant lot on the west side of South Norton , the body of an aspiring young actress was found severed in two pieces. The severely mutilated body was completely severed at the waist and drained entirely of blood, leaving its skin a pallid white. Her face had been slashed from the corners of her mouth to her ears, creating a twisted smile. The L.A newspapers tagged it the Black Dahlia murder and the city was changed forever. The murder has never solved. Spade had left his mark on Los Angeles and it greased the wheels of decades of unsolved murders and disappearances across the country. The Cleveland Torso murders and the Chicago Lip Stick murders to name a few. Fear is power and nobody does it better than Spade. But, nothing lasts forever or does it? Because of his sins Spade was forever cast out to wonder among us in search of his next big gig. Today he serves up a new kind of Fear as master of ceremonies at the Fear Addiction Haunted House. When Spade digs under your skin he stays there. Fear is his business and business is good.

Twisted Dreams, Twisted Dreams Productions, Home Haunt, Buena Park, Orange County, OC, CA, Halloween

Twisted Dreams is a Haunted House in the OC/LA area that brings a whole new meaning when it comes to your ideas of what’s truly twisted!

Before Dairyland, descendants of the rural area, cattle ranchers, Farmers, and trainmen alike survived generations. With no town in place, these group of tough minded farmers did what was necessary to preserve their way of life. 1995 as urbanization approached, surrounding city councils wanted to obtain the forbidden land. Years of conflict with blood in the sand, lines were crossed, agreements broken. Most of the land was taken by condemnation through eminent domain.

During this time many bizarre, grizzly murders surfaced as city officials began to disappear. Rumors of sinister cults furthered investigations. One of the highest suspects in these heinous crimes was known as the conductor; a train man who was known to process and transport livestock. It was later determined that the scattered remains of these city officials were found in box cars of trains that transported exotic animals and cattle throughout the Sierra Nevadas. Whispers of human bodies being preserved for food.

Detectives could not find the families responsible for the vicious crimes. In 1965, Dairyland was no more and the case closed… unsolved. For the locals, this will forever be known as The Great Sierra Western… 63 Years later, whispers arise once more of the return of the Conductor
