This week. we explore many facets of the current state of Haunted Mansion fandom by looking at three separate current events. First, we welcome Skywalking Through Neverland back to the show to tell us all about the taping of this year’s “31 Nights of Halloween Fanfest,” which took place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and will debut on Freeform Oct. 5. Richard and Sarah tell us about the special guests, the deep nostalgia behind this year’s show, and then give us a shocking revelation about the lineup. Next, Walt Gorecki speaks with us about “The Haunted 2: Welcome Foolish Mortals,” his Haunted Mansion-inspired art show materializing this weekend at The Hive Gallery in Los Angeles. Walt shares some thoughts about why the Haunted Mansion inspires so many artists, and then goes on the describe some of the features visitors can expect when visiting his unique installation. And finally, we have a Mousetalgia roundtable discussion about Funko’s ongoing Haunted Mansion merchandise release which has likely reached a mall near you, and we discuss finding the Haunted Mansion beyond the berm of a Disney park. Plus – Haunted Mansion trivia, a report from the new spooktacular enhancements to Disneyland Paris’ Tower of Terror attraction… and more.
