    Now Inside Edition is covering the girl's death in the Haunted house Thursday 10-23. They are airing the teaser " Are Haunted houses TOO scary? See what happened to this young girl"

    Look at what is happening when an accident happens. Even though the mother claims no blame on the haunt, the media is still trying to push the sensational angle.
    Just image what will happen when (not IF) something happens at one of these so called "extreme" haunts or victim torture "shows".

    First the arrest of a haunt actor for inappropriately touching, a teen dies in a haunt, the media will have a field day with a torture death!!!

    Do we REALLY need to run these types of shows to make a buck??? This is a CREATIVE industry. We can be more creative than groping, cussing and simulating torture as "entertainment"!

    All torture simulation or touching shows should have a SEPARATE classification. I really do NOT want to pay exorbitant insurance rates because of something totally out of my control!!!

    Watch the segment, if the sensationalize it, we need to respond.

    We could run shows that are rated G, but, if the media wants to report, they're gonna do it and sensationalize it. We live in a society that believes history started 12 seconds ago. EVERYONE is a reporter and there is massive efforts on just about everyone's part to be the "first to report", regardless of facts.

    I once watched a documentary that had a segment about accidental deaths at roller coster parks. They said when a death occurred the attendance shot through the roof as people showed up to ride whatever ride killed the person. People are drawn to danger. People are stupid.

    The small lake was a thriving new business with a camp ground, Summer stock theater and on a very busy Summer afternoon. two young men, in their early 20's drowned as the lake was extremely crowded with people all trying to cool off.
    The Lake's owner thought that no one would ever be showing up there for at least the whole rest of the Summer after this incredibly negative news story.
    The very next weekend the place was "packed" , full of people who all came to see where those guys had drowned!?
    The lake's water was always very murky with underwater vision reduced to maybe 5 inches, or less which may have added to the "Excitement" and Mystery for some people...
    One of the two basic fears is "What is Under The Water?" along with "What is under the Earth?"
    Maybe many just have to feed their nightmares by attending gruesome accident locations?
    Some will discover that it is very difficult to ever "Unsee Something" once experienced.
    A fatal car accident ocurred just 1/4 of a mile from a Restaurant my Dad was in, he raced to the scene because his truck had various tools in it in case someone was trapped inside the car.
    He saw a young girl laying out of the shattered rear window ,long hair bloodied as her lifeless body gave him nightmares because she was the same age as his Daughter.
