The mind of Haunted House Creator and horror aficionado Timothy Haskell

One of my favorite rooms in "Killers". Does anyone remember this one? Not your typical haunted house room. This one was sad. Few knew who the killer was that was being represented. It was the first room, and it represented Albert Fish. This woman was the mother of one of his victims. I thought it created a strong dramatic arc for the house if it started with the perspective of one the victims. I post all of the photos from the house, as well as sketches and other creepy things I see on a daily basis, on my Instagram account: @iscareyou
(Director) recently directed Sex You (I’m Gonna) by Nathan Phillips at the ACE Hotel and then in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this past summer. Other credits include Off-Broadway’s Stitching (The Wild Project and The Elephant in Los Angeles), The Jaded Assassin (Ohio Theatre), Fatal Attraction: A Greek Tragedy starring Corey Feldman at the Classic Stage Company, Corporate Rock (Blue Heron Arts Center), the Paris Hilton spoof I Love Paris by Doug Fields also at the Blue Heron Arts Center as well as the Nightmare off-shoot The Experiment: A Nightmare Before Christmas which had an extended run last December. He also co-curated and produced the first ever Fight Festival at The Brick Theatre premiering Last Life that later transferred to the Ohio Theatre. He is perhaps best known for creating and directing the cult hit Road House: The Stage Play, which transferred from Off-Off Broadway to Off-Broadway at the Barrow Street Theatre. Mr. Haskell is also the creator and director of the annual Nightmare: New York’s Most Horrifying Haunted House which has run each fall for the past nine years. The most recent installation was Nightmare: Killers and the follow up Killers2 in 2013.
