    Very amusing video.

    I am pretty sure that guy is a customer of ours about 20 times each year! My poor actors get abused almost every night. It goes along with the territory when you scare the poop out of people.

    I would say that the reason for a reaction like that is because it took place in a setting where such a thing is completely unexpected, but I've found myself on the recieving end of a couple blows in a haunt enviornment, so my theory is busted.

    That was amazing though lol

    Um, ouch. Regardless of following the age old rule of staying an arm's length away, I've been clocked a few times in my many years of haunting. (Maybe their arms were longer than mine?) That just brought it all back. :shock: <---what the guys face looked like behind the mask

    Ouch is right!

    And did you see the way he hit him? The guy moved and swung like a boxer.

    If it was staged the stunt man didn't get paid enough.
    The first time I saw it I thought the punch looked very pre-meditated, the second time I saw it , watching the puncher's face more closely, I don't think so, he looked kind of ashamed or sheepish, I thought.
    Most simply reactive puchers don't usually seem to get their swing too smooth or the steps right to create a real boxer-type punch.
    Arms usually just come more up and out slightly, not a full extension making hard contact.

    To me it didn't look staged. It looked like a genuine reaction, and one that I have seen many times. Yes, it was an extreme version in that he landed a much better punch than most would if startled. As Jim said, take it as a lesson. This can happen any time you scare someone.

    I can deal with startle punchers. It is those who think it is fun to assault the actors that get my goat. Interestingly, it seems to be women almost as often a men who act this way. Pathetic.

    My imagination informed me that freelance scaring can lead to big problems and I refused offers of money to do such things to people I didn't know in places that I don't own.
    "How much to wear that one hideous costume of yours, hide in the attic of a rental cabin, and scare the crap out my friend who will be spending the night there?"
    What if this "friend" has a heart condition? What if this "friend" carrys a loaded gun?
    "BOO!" = "Bang!"
