What It's Like to Experience 'The Purge' Live at a Haunted Attraction in Downtown Los Angeles

It's the scariest month of the year and haunted attractions are popping up around the country faster than you can say "horror remake." There is one unique adult haunted-house experience in downtown Los Angeles produced by Jason Blum—the man behind the horror films Insidious, Paranormal Activity and The Purge—called The Purge: Fear the Night. It is, of course, based on the film of the same name about a new government that allows people to commit any crime, including murder, for one 12-hour period a year. "If it were a movie, it would be a spin-off, not a sequel," says Blum. "It's adjacent to the movie as opposed to before or after."

In other words, you don't need to see The Purge to enjoy The Purge: Fear the Night, where you will be a VIP delegate hiding out with the rest of the New Founders as the world goes to hell outside. There is one problem: dissidents have infiltrated the building, and they are all tricks and no treats.

Blum saw a New York production by theater producer Josh Randall and theater director Kris Thor and invited them to combine a theatrical experience with a haunted house to scare the wits out of visitors in Los Angeles. The two were intrigued by the motivations of the New Founders, whom guests will see celebrating in the main theater as PNN (the Purge News Network) televises their festivities before it all goes terribly wrong. "It's all about what's behind the smiles," says Thor of the New Founders.

Coproducer Josh Simon says that "every square inch" of the 1924 building's six floors and 70,000 square feet are used for Fear the Night. Although originally presented as a combination guided and free-roaming experience, the entire event has been reconceived for a more focused experience to guide visitors through all six floors.

At one point guests take an elevator upstairs to a ballroom area where they can further explore the building's many areas and interact with actors they've encountered. "The Founders created their own Liberty Park so they don't have to go outside while everyone is killing themselves outside," says Randall. "The only way to go through the park is to have a Purge mask on." There are also New Founders offices, a medical facility, as well as the apartment of the New Founders' founder on the top floor. Let's just say it's immediately apparent why the New Founders keep the old guy tucked away.

"It's not like going to a play, it's not a haunted house, but it's something in the middle," says Blum." Although he wouldn't confirm which movie, Blum says he has an idea for another one of his films that would translate well at the same location next year in a new haunted attraction. That sounds absolutely Insidious to us.

The Purge: Fear the Night is open at 940 S. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, California on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays with expanded hours during Halloween week. Tickets are $65 and can be purchased online at purgelive.com or at the box office. Guests must be 18 or over and show up during their selected entry period.
