Every year, in each individual state, an event happens that gathers 1100 adolescent boys to participate in tradition called Boys State. The American Legion sponsored program shows these inspired young men the ins and outs of politics through the course of a strenuous seven days, where they must form a mock government. By the end, the Legion hopes that the young men will be made aware of the politics, democracy, and effort it takes to running a successful campaign. Famous political figures such as Dick Cheney, Corey Booker, Bill Clinton, Rush Limbaugh, and many others, have participated in this event.

Cinephellas Flashback: Logan’s Interview with Brandy Schaefer (The Houses October Built)

by Logan Myerz

Just in time for the Halloween season, the newest tale of horror and macabre takes place in everyone’s favorite seasonal attraction, the Haunted House.  Five friends embark on a haunted trip in 2013 to find the ultimate horror attraction, but what they find is far more traumatizing than they expected. As they come across numerous haunted houses throughout Texas and Louisiana they interview the creepiest and most demonic individuals employed by these houses. Are these attractions built just for the normal adrenaline junkie or is there a darker secret waiting inside? This movie touches on many of the questions I have been asking myself for years walking through haunted houses. As a paying customer do we really trust the person behind the mask scaring us, or are they truly insane? This documentary style film answers some of these questions, and in my opinion is something truly unique in the horror genre. The audience is given admission to many Haunted attractions throughout the south with point-of-view camera angles, real actor interviews, and hundreds of blood curdling screams. Tobe Hooper’s The Funhouse was a fictitious film back in 1981 that touched on the same subject, but with a non-believable monster lurking within the shadows. What makes this film more authentic is the touch of realism and dementia that resides in America’s backyard that only comes out thirty-one days a year. This is as real as movies come and people should be aware of their surroundings because they don’t know if the masked ghoul is an actor or a crazy convict on the run.
