Chamber of Horrors NY’s Holiday Horror Show is Produced by Award Winning Make-Up Artist

It takes an elite team to prepare for Long Islands only off season holiday horror show, Chamber of Horrors NY A Very Scary XMAS. With the right amount of fake blood and perfect airbrush techniques, an artist can transform any human into a creepy Christmas creature. Chamber of Horror’s head make-up artist, Stephanie Sabolenko, won first place at the pristine NY Horror Show King and Queen SFX make up competition. With the most talented make-up artists in the haunt industry, Chamber of Horrors promises double the fear as you are stalked by Santa and his minions of cannibalistic elves, zombie snowmen and other twisted Christmas characters.

Haunting is one of the most unique jobs that provides a world of social and real-life networking opportunities. A self-taught SPFX make-up artist from Mastic Beach Long Island, Sabolenko goes by the nickname Bloody Sabo. She started haunt make-up right from her kitchen table with a little latex and toilet paper. Today she is a master at sculpting and creating original looks and designs for Chamber of Horrors NY. A Very Scary XMAS Part 2 includes every aspect of haunt make-up, beauty, gore and fantasy face painting.

A few chills on Christmas aren’t completely outside of the spirit of the holiday. It may be hard to believe, but the evolution of haunted houses began during The Dark Ages, where Christians literally scared people into believing their message. Pageant wagons toured the lands performing plays that often included the scarier parts of biblical stories. Similar to haunts, attendees enjoyed the scares and gore right along with the morals.
Beginning with the dark Dickens morality tale “A Christmas Carol,” Hollywood has continued to notice the evolving trend of horror during the holidays. This year, Krampus, a demonic child-eating goat is coming to punish misbehaved children.
The Christmas fright fest will take place on December 11th, 12th, 18th and 19th. Admission tickets are currently being sold on the Chamber of Horrors NY Website for $25 and include a picture with Santa.

Salem is not just for witches anymore!

The Merchant, a Lark Hotels property located in the heart of Salem, Massachusetts, will open its doors on November 25, 2015 with 11 guest rooms and suites. The Merchant will be the first boutique hotel in this historic harborside town and brings the total number of Lark Hotels to 13, with an additional five coming in 2016.

Best known for the 1692 Salem Witch Trials, Salem today is one of New England’s most popular destinations for those seeking a ghostly experience. However, only true history buffs will know that newly elected President George Washington visited the town on October 29, 1789 on his inaugural tour — 226 years ago today. During his stay, Washington spent the evening at what is now The Merchant, and hotel guests can rest their heads in the very same room, aptly named The George Washington Room.

Designed by Boston-based Rachel Reider Interiors, guest accommodations and social spaces fuse an elegantly modern vibe with the ornate details of the 18th century structure. Rich shades of red, emerald green, and deep purple are paired with original woodwork, floating staircases, and highly textural fabrics and furnishings for an exquisite and worldly experience. Asian-inspired custom artwork evokes Salem’s role as a vital trade port in Washington’s time, serving as a hub for molasses used for rum, Sumatran pepper, tea, and spices.

The Merchant was originally a private home owned by Joshua Ward, a wealthy sea merchant and privateer who commissioned acclaimed 18th century architect Samuel McIntire to build the stunning federal style building on Washington Street. Between Ward’s ownership and its reincarnation as a boutique hotel, the property has been a tavern, an office building, and even a rare bookshop. From The Merchant’s central location, guests will enjoy exploring Salem’s rich history, delicious eateries, evocative architecture, boutiques, specialty shops, and galleries.

To celebrate its grand opening, The Merchant is offering an “Explore the Neighborhood” special from November 25-December 17, 2015. Guests who book two or more nights directly with the hotel will receive 10% off room rates, two complimentary tickets to the acclaimed Peabody Essex museum and a $20 dining credit to Naumkeag Ordinary — a restaurant just around the corner from the hotel. Potential guests can read complete details at http://www.themerchantsalem.com.

Chamber of Horrors Benefits Local Art Community in an Uncommon Way

Beyond the scares, Chamber of Horrors NY makes a point to be different than the typical haunted house this holiday season. After recently being voted Long Island’s Scariest Haunted House by News 12 Long Island, the chamber is directing their focus on the community and people within it.

Chamber_of_Horrors_09-1 - Copy
Chamber of Horrors NY has created a one-night event to showcase local New York artists, Nightmare Gallery. On October 22nd, from 9 p.m. – 12 a.m., approximately 50 artists will showcase their work within the walls of two attractions during the chamber’s Trilogy of Fear show. The concept behind Nightmare Gallery is to be unique and interactive. While guests are observing local art, they will be interacting with not only the paintings, but spooky-actors creating tingly scares.
Nightmare Gallery will benefit Jay Chicarelli, a participating artist, whose wife recently past away. Proceeds from the $15 entry-fee will be donated to the Chicarelli family in hopes to support them through the holiday season. A donation page for the family has been created: Forherfamily.
“It’s sad and unfortunate. We’re going to do everything we can to help his family,” stated Matt Guiliano, Co-Owner of Chamber of Horrors NY. “Anyone who works with and for Chamber of Horrors NY, we consider to be part of our family. We’ll do what can for Jay and his.”
Nightmare Gallery is being curated by local artists, David Graham and Heather Tinneny. The show concentrates on helping out the local art community in an uncommon way.
“This is what makes Chamber of Horrors NY great; they allow for new features and events to happen and they firmly believe in giving back to people,” explained Graham.
Nightmare Gallery promises to promote local artists, give back to a family in need, scare and even entertain you, making this show too scary to miss.

Chamber of Horrors NY Takes Fear to a New Extreme With “Kill the Light” and “Trilogy of Fear”

0000LegoLand4DTheatreKV

This fall Chamber of Horrors NY is leaving nothing to the imagination by creating extreme haunts for hardcore fans to enjoy. While traditional haunted houses will always be a place to get harmless thrills, extreme events are quickly maturing with today’s society.

Actors jumping out of dark corners just don’t satisfy anymore. Every Sunday, Chamber of Horrors NY puts on Kill the Light, in which guests are sent through Miss Fortune’s Maniac Manor, a Toxic City and a Witch Asylum with only a single glow stick for survival. Kill the Light is designed to leave guests on the edge of their toes, evoking childhood memories of being scared of the dark, while creeping through three times the terror. Kill the Light offers a Basic Burial, which is a standard admission ticket, for $25. For the fear enthusiasts, a R.I.P Pass is offered for $35, allowing the ticket holder to move directly to the front of the line.
Due to its popularity, Kill the Light will also be offered this upcoming Columbus Day on Monday, October 14.  Customer reviews for Kill the Light can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/popc9aw
On November 1, The Trilogy of Fear Final Night will be offered to extreme haunt enthusiasts. It  is a full contact, no rules extravaganza of chaos.  This extreme night caters to the demand of fans looking to be frightened to their core, with the aim to terrorize. Actors are hands-on and guests must interact with them during the experience, remaining and interacting in haunts instead of just passing through. The Final Night requires guests to fill out a waiver and be at least 18 years old, with proof of age. A Basic Burial, the standard admission ticket, is offered for $25. A R.I.P Pass is offered for $35, allowing the ticket holder to move directly to the front of the line.
These haunts are not your standard corporate sponsored haunts, but instead leave you begging for survival while having a spooky-fun time.

Long Island’s Terrifying Haunted Attraction Now Open!

0image0

As the summer comes to a close, Chamber of Horrors NY is putting the final terrifying touches on the Trilogy of Fear, three scare attractions that are now open.

Miss Fortune, the Diva of Despair with a cult-like following thanks to her strong social media presence and YouTube shows, returns again this year to welcome you to her Maniac Manor. Guests will also be led through the Toxic City, where they must dodge mutants and mayhem, as well as a trip to the Witch Asylum, where guests encounter a little girl with a grotesque secret. For the Sunday night attraction, known as Kill the Light, every light source in the building is turned off and you experience the attraction with nothing but a glow stick to light the way. The darkness intensifies the fear and makes every second feel like minutes. The Trilogy of Fear is suggested for those 12 years or older.
A new feature to the 2015 Season includes the Nightmare Gallery, an interactive horror art exhibition that is one part haunted house and one part art gallery, created in conjunction with the Long Island Art Collective. The Nightmare Gallery is open for one night only on Oct. 22nd.
For little ones looking to get smaller scares, the Chamber of Horrors NY is featuring two family days on Oct. 18th and 25th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. A few ghouls will guide the little ones through the haunted attractions that will have lights on with no sound, along with trick or treating and character photos.
Chamber of Horrors NY is also well known for its post-Halloween haunts, including New York’s first and only A Very Scary Xmas haunt. This controversial haunted attraction is back again with Claus-Trophobia debuting in December. Last year, Chamber of Horrors NY’s commercial for A Very Scary Xmas was so disturbing that the cable company refused to air the spot, even on late night TV.
Chamber of Horrors NY covers 10,000 square feet and is run by 16-year industry veterans. “We’re going deeper into our haunted imagination and unveiling three new experiences this year that will leave guests truly terrified,” says owner Marty Arominski, who promises that Miss Fortune and a demented cast of characters are more messed-up than ever for the 2015 lineup of haunts.
Tickets start at $25 and Chamber of Horrors NY is open every weekend in October starting Sept. 25th through Oct. 31st, 2015. Check online at Chamber of Horrors NY for the most accurate information about hours of operation, directions and special discounts. Open rain or shine.
