Inside the charmingly frightening world of Spookers, New Zealand's top scare park

Spookers As night falls at Spookers, dozens of seemingly ordinary people become freaks, zombies and chainsaw-wielding clowns. Every weekend come rain, hail or shine, this diverse group of amateur performers unite to terrify punters at the southern hemisphere's largest scream park, situated in a former psychiatric hospital. Director Florian Habicht reveals the transformative and paradoxically lifesaving power of belonging to a community that celebrates fear.

"Complete with beautiful fantasy sequences and made with a huge heart, Spookers is another feather in the cap of gifted Berlin-born, New Zealand-based filmmaker Florian Habicht. If ever there was a Freak Me Out 'family film,' this is it."

- Sydney Film Festival 2017
