UPDATE: The event is cancelled due to apparent performance issues from the authority and unforeseen circumstances
Halloween is coming early this year as Epico Malaysia will be presenting #HauntFest MY — the largest and longest haunted house ever in Malaysia that uniquely ends with a live concert. So get ready to scream and then sing and dance after (haha).
#HauntFest MY features the House of Horror, a 500-metre trail filled with 50 horror characters, over 100 props and a 4D environmental change such as misty, snowy, fogs, etc. Survivors who escaped the House of Horror will end up on Mystery Land where the concert takes place and food vendors, games and merchandises await. The concert is headlined by local artists of various genres — Sonaone, An Honest Mistake, K Town Clan, Sekumpulan Orang Gila, Nightskies & Visions and Chukiess & Whackboi.
I had the privilege to experience a very mini preview of the horror at the media launch that was held at a house in Petaling Jaya. It was quite impressive, particularly with the committed performances of the actors, makeup and the little tricks that we don’t get much at typical haunted houses in Malaysia. Check out my “found footage” of this preview;
#HauntFestMY will be held on June 23rd 2018 from 4pm till midnight at STARXPO Centre – KWC Fashion Mall in Kuala Lumpur. Early bird sale of the tickets are available now. Tickets can be purchased on RedTix. For more info, visit hauntfest.com.my/
