    I think one of the main reasons the redneck accent is so used especially here in the south is there is already the fear and sterotype so we just play it up. and in some haunts that accent is not fake. Personally I have always been fond of the Russian or eatern europe accent. But an accent should fit the character if it does not then do not use it. I mean how wierd would it be for a guy dressed up as a redneck hillbilly to open up his mouth and sound like one of the cast members from Jeresy shore.

    I did a Southern accent because I was in the corn maze with a western/ghost town theme. I played up the hillbilly butcher kinda vibe and it worked.

    Freak n stein,
    Thank you for the kind words and honorable mention about our Russian nurses. using the accent gave our asylum an edgy feel that alot of patrons commented about.
    Its a great tool we used that set us apart from other haunts. We even expanded it into the haunt to let not only our nurses speak Russian but also our actors.
    It changes the tone of the whole haunt and gives it that little extra difference that some are looking for.
    It worked for us, give it a try.

    German and russian are my two favorite to use. i usually kind of make my own accent depending on the character. also swapping accents mid sentence seems to keep patrons wondering whats happening.

    Keep in mind who you're casting for the part. If someone in your haunt has just moved from Brooklyn, you might not want them doing a heavy speaking part as a redneck...

    Well, I'm a clown, so I tend to use the classic clown voice and laugh. It works well. hahaha

    A drunken male customer here with two sober young women was using a very convincing English accent..("HMM?" how does this work?)
    I had alot of fun with him when he said he was from" MANNNN-Chester!"
    I told him that I was from "Woman-Chester!"

    That's funny.

    We had more than a few groups of exchange students from various nations. I particularly enjoyed the French speaking crew since I was able to yell "I will kill and eat you!" in French.

    The looks on the kids' faces was priceless.
