Nightmares Fear Factory in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, has been in the business of scaring guests for more than 30 years. For over a decade it has also captured images of those frightened in the “haunted” house that is open 364 days a year.
It all started, the picture part that is, when owner Frank Lapenna would hide with a camera in a spot where he could snap a good scare. Afterward he would show off the shots for a hysterical laugh. He was inspired by the roller-coaster photos taken in the scariest moment of the ride and offered for sale after.
Now the photos are shot with two remote cameras (and one night-vision video camera) placed strategically along the route and triggered by motion that also fires two flashes. Logistical challenges prevent them from setting up more, though they keep trying.
Here are a few of my favorites from its Fear Pics collection. See more on its Flickr and Facebook pages.
Also see Rick Loomis’ photos from Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor.
