"We were devastated and our lives turned upside down," said Matt Guiliano, one of the events co-owners. On Halloween Night at approximately 2:00 in the morning, a group of thieves broke into Chamber of Horrors and made away with the company safe. The contents of the safe included the Actor Payroll, Facility Rent, Personal Finances of the co-owners and a generous amount of ticket sales during the Halloween season. Marty Arominski when asked about the situation simply said “This was a huge loss for us as owners and for our Haunt Family. It could be the end of our six-year run”
After learning about the theft, the cast and crew who put together chamber of horrors donated most of their pay for the Halloween weekend to help out the owners but one individual knew it wasn’t enough. Robert Frankenberg jumped into action with the veterans of the haunted attraction and created Crooked Christmas. A fundraiser to ensure Chamber of Horrors returns for the 2018 season and the owners will be OK through the winter months. “This is about more than the business of scaring people, Matt has children. Christmas time is about giving back so that is exactly what we are doing. We are going to save these gentlemen’s families," said Robert Frankenberg one of the events Managers."
So this Christmas, open not only your mind to the experiences of horror these pro have to offer, but if you can open heart and save a local business that has served its community every Halloween for the last six years at its current location. Save Halloween this Christmas if you have the spirit or just respect them.
