We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, horror is subjective. Because the world around us can be just as scary as what horror directors depict on the big screen. And that’s why the Fremont Abbey Arts Center’s haunted house is worth checking out, it’s a multi-arts experience looking at just how scary our changing world is.

By ‘changing world’, we mean climate change. Something we’ve all seen this year in our own country between the fires across North America and Hurricane Ida. If you want to see the scary realities of climate change come to life as you wander through a dark maze haunted by the shadows of our time, this is the spot for you. Come face to face with the “Fossil Fool” business executives and try to avoid the desperate pleas of the hungry ghosts of consumerism.
