Cool Hunting: Exploring L.A.’s Hidden Haunted House [Video]
Artist Albert Reyes has created a haunted house in his backyard every year since 2004, and it has turned into a local Halloween ritual.
While recently exploring the southern coast of the Golden State we ended up in the Los Angeles neighborhood of El Sereno where artist Albert Reyes gave us a behind-the-scenes look at his yearly Halloween project. Since 2004 Reyes has built a Halloween maze in his backyard for a party in celebration of America’s favorite pagan holiday. Over time, the maze has evolved from a blanket tunnel held together with sticks to a full, free-standing structure, guaranteed to spook the drunk, stoned and sober alike. We got a special glimpse of the maze in daylight to learn about the scavenged materials and secret passages, and follow the process behind this bizarre installation.
Throughout the rest of the year, Albert creates pop-culture and political-satire prints on paper, which are available online from Mastodon Mesa
