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.

"SPOOKERS is hilarious, heartbreaking, exciting, frightening and important. This is what cinema is about – telling stories that you didn’t know existed, and subverting what the traditional narrative of those stories would usually be." (AB Film Review)
