Living It Up: Halloweeen Haunted House
What would Halloween be without a little fear factor? Well tonight, Jackie Johnson's Living It Up with ghosts and goblins. She's going behind the scenes of Fright Night 2 at the Florida Fairgrounds.
(WSVN) -- Well there's no bones about it, we are Living It Up and I promise we are going to scare the skin off of you, we are going to take you on a tour of one of South Florida's scariest haunted houses so come along.
Jackie: "Hey Playboy look, it's that spread that you wanted me to do, in my birthday suit."
Jackie: "So a lot of planning goes into this, its not just people walking around looking scary and saying boo."
George: "No it has to be choreographed, it has to be figured out number one so that it will work and number 2 so that it's safe."
Jackie: "Now what do you find is the best way to scare somebody in general?"
George: "Just startles, in the haunt business you refer to it as a startle, you know as a boo scare."
George: "But you have to set them up first, in other words, you redirect by giving people something else to look at."
Jackie: "And if somebody ever get so scared that they want to leave, there's exists all over."
George: "We have chicken doors all over."
Jackie: "Does that happen a lot?"
George: "We have not had anyone request a chicken door, but we have had a number of panic attacks... it's kind of a badge of honor."
George: "This is just the foundation makeup."
Jackie: "So how long does it normally take to put all this makeup on?"
George: "Depending on how elaborate you want to get, it can take minutes, it can take hours."
Jackie: "It's got to be fun."
George: "For anybody creative this is the ultimate creative endeavor because if you can think it, you can pretty much do it."
Jackie: "Do I look scary yet?"
Jackie: "I need a dress now to wear."
Jackie: "You don't look like you are feeling so well, hey what'd you eat for dinner, sausage?"
Jackie:"Haven't I seen you around here before?"
Scary guy: "You have been sent to Arcane Asylum because it has been decided that you suffer from incurable mental defect...there is no escape from Arcane Asylum."
Jackie:"And that's what it's like scaring you at Fright Nights haunted event, I'm Jackie Johnson and ill be looking for you on Halloween, 7 News."
Make note: The next Living It Up will be on Friday. That's when Jackie will go behind the scenes with the legendary rock band - KISS.
