Florian Habicht | Australia & New Zealand | 2017 | 83 min | Berlin Premiere
Director Florian Habicht will attend the screening
On the grounds of a former psychiatric hospital, a close-knit community of horror performers transform their lives at the most successful haunted attraction in the Southern Hemisphere. In this family, scaring is caring.
“But at the film’s heart is the performers’ personal stories about their own struggles – with health, self-confidence, relationships, sexuality, mental illness – and the catharsis and connections they’ve found in their work.” – The Guardian
“… thoroughly enjoyable … the director makes an intriguing choice of visualizing dreams had by some of the interview subjects … Spookers is a celebration of strangeness.” — Richard Kuipers, Variety
