Fall River Terror Factory ready to add to its spooky squad
Believe it or not, we only have about two months left before the fun of summer is replaced by the spooky season of fall. I love to be scared, and with the growing popularity of haunted events in the fall, I know I’m not alone.
But instead of being afraid, what would it be to be afraid? Factory of Terror in Fall River is ready to show what it feels like.
The Terror Factory has been scaring the people of Fall River for decades, with new tricks up its creepy sleeves every year, and it always amazes me how terrifying the ghost, ghouls and goblins really are. Nathan Araujo, Director of Operations, has been involved for many years and is proud of the impressive training program his team offers to comedians.
âWe run pre-season classes, run by the managers and interim coaches who have been with us for the 25 years we’ve been around,â said Araujo. “We go over the different types of scares, how they are performed and what to look for in a client.”
Just when I thought there was only one type of “fear”, it turns out there are several. Araujo and his team teach actors the different types, from loud and energetic, to calm and scary, to backstage scaring and triggering certain props. There really is a method to the madness.
The Terror Factory shared on Facebook that it is ready to welcome new actors, makeup artists and event staff to its team, and urges anyone who is into anything scary to apply.
As Araujo said, there aren’t many jobs that encourage you to yell at customers.
