Welcome to a “choose your own adventure” style of haunted scavenger hunt for adults 18 and over. We have a sprawling 40-acre property with the historic Weldon House at Blackthorne Resort designed to be tailored to each camper and ranges from mild horror to a non-stop, twisted trip of overnight terror. For 14 years, Jakal Blackwell has been working in and with haunted attractions on the East Coast. In the beginning of 2016, he teamed up with Jeff Mach of Jeff Mach Events and Dale Handel of Blackthorne Resort to create this fully immersive horror experience for all who wish that Halloween would never end.
But first...we have to build it. This largely entails money and support. Money is the wonderful thing that helps us buy lumber, paint, wiring, and helps us get people qualified to put these things together into structures like the fun house, the hospital, and the prison-style escape cell. It also pays for the tents (we could hardly expect our campers to bring tents that will likely get slashed, could we?), props, promotion, and the scavenger hunt items to be found, and hiring the very best zombies, insane clowns, demons, demented doctors, and other horrific creatures we can scare up.
We’ve invested $3,000 of our own money in this project so far, but need at least another $5,000 to reach the minimum goals to raise this haunt from the dead. We’ve amassed some rewards we think will make your hair stand on end such as an “Unexpected Guest” backers-only lunch with Cleve Hall, star of SyFy reality television series “Monster Man” and the Red Zone creator Dr. Jakal Blackwell, a unique VIP scare that no one but “Red Zone Elite” backers can experience, the chance to design a character in the Red Zone, and even the ability to create one of the haunts inside the Red Zone! When you back and share this campaign at ANY level, you’re helping us bring all this gory goodness to life.

Risks and challenges
Two of the biggest challenges we face are making sure we have funding to bring these twisted visions to life and that we have enough time to do it well. In the haunt world, time is of the essence and building begins months before Halloween, as does hiring actors.
We plan to begin building on May 21st, giving us just four and a half months to complete at least three buildings and go through the audition, hiring, and rehearsal process. We’ve already been offered donations from previous haunts and have been using all our connections in and outside of the haunt world to bring together an amazing team of builders, designers, technicians, actors, and make up artists. Weather might be an issue, in terms of building, but thankfully we’re mostly out of the rainy season.
Jakal Blackwell has been in the haunt world for over a decade and knows how to bring a haunt together. He is amassing an amazing team of talented people to make this project happen, but we need your help! If this project is fully funded by the end, the Red Zone WILL happen.
