Comox Valley’s favourite Halloween Spooktacular is returning in a new COVID friendly experience this year.
Be prepared to have your socks scared off watching the premiere of a new video, “Cabin in the Woods,” presented by The LINC Youth Centre’s Ghoul School. This video project replaces the Haunted House that ran at The LINC in previous years but will not be happening due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Ghoul School participants have been dead-icated over the past month to putting together a script, preparing sets, and filming this chilling tale for all to enjoy. They’ve put blood, sweat, and tears into this production, choosing the theme, and preparing characters to scare you to your core. Ghoul School includes participants returning from years past, and several new faces.
Youth Worker Tia Botta returns this year with the help of UVic practicum student Mellissa to bring you this deadly presentation.
“Although this project is different than previous years, the youth involved were excited to make this Halloween video and keep the Ghoul School tradition alive.” Botta said. “This video is something that has staying power that people can watch years down the road.”
Although we had to reduce the number of participants this year and missed some of our veteran ghouls, we hope to see their return next year.
Special thanks to Craven Studios for their time and commitment to help with the project.
Watching the premier on The LINC Facebook page on Oct. 28 at 8 p.m., and at www.courtenay.ca/haunted
