Guest Spotlight: Movie and QA: Margee Kerr of Pittsburgh’s Scarehouse and The Science of Being Scared – Scare U
The cooler weather is coming and the next thing you know it will be Halloween.
We have a guest from my old hometown of Pittsburgh at Intervention this year. Margee Kerr has extensive experience in research, co-authoring scholarly articles on the history of medicine and doctor/patient communication. She is also a nationally recognized expert on professional haunted houses.
She works year round for ScareHouse (A haunted attraction that I have reviewed over here.) consulting with the creators and owners on how to be scientifically scary and in developing, implementing, and analyzing data on customers and employees. In 2012 Margee helped to create, write, and host the interesting and a little hilarious “Scare U” web series with the ScareHouse which aired in October of 2012.
Scare U presents fast‐paced and entertaining lessons all about fear, covering everything from the evolution of the fight or flight response to the fear of zombies and clowns, to why people love to be scared.
Margee will be presenting some of her work and doing a Q&A @ 2PM on Sat. Aug 24 in the Video Room! This is a Can’t Miss.
