Staying home this Halloween? Stay spooky! FEARHOUSE360 puts horror in the palm of your hand with immersive 360 videos that bring the haunted house to you.
Calling all horror loving introverts! Have you ever wanted to experience the thrills and chills of an immersive haunted house while avoiding the real terror of the crowds and chaos? Thanks to FEARHOUSE360, you can do just that.
Brought to you by content creators Channel B4 and Doctored Pictures, FEARHOUSE360 is a three-part haunt which you can stream via Vimeo Video On Demand. Grab your phone or tablet (0r even your desktop or laptop computer) and drop inside the winding halls of Klunch Manor for a first person journey into certain darkness with Frau Klunch and her entourage of twisted characters.
“We were inspired by cult classics like Ken Russel’s GOTHIC and THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW – stylish, eerie and of course, a touch campy,” says Stacy Dawson Stearns, a lead creative on the team (who also inhabits the role of Frau Klunch).
Stearns developed persona Klunch in the 90s, performing in the downtown drag scene of NYC. Stearns states, “Frau is a little demanding, a little dark, and definitely starving for your… attention.”
FEARHOUSE360 features a distinct combination of live action performance, animation, and puppetry. Within the walls of the manor, viewers engage with 24 performers in intimate and shocking encounters. This performance-driven environment offers that human touch you experience in a traditional haunted house; even if the humans in question are hungry ghosts, demons, or killer clowns.
You can view this 360 Horror Experience with Vimeo’s 360 platform for computers and handheld devices. And if you haven’t already, Vimeo will walk you through how to download the Vimeo app to you are mobile device.

If you’ve never experienced 360 viewing before, these videos are a great introduction to the capabilities of this incredible technology. I should note that, while you can absolutely enjoy FEARHOUSE360 with nothing more than your phone, computer, or tablet, using a pair of VR/360 Goggles and headphones will significantly enhance your experience — helping recreate that truly immersive experience that makes haunted houses so much wicked fun. I had a chance to check out the first two episodes with VR Goggles, and I was surprised by how well done and engaging they were.
