The Face of FEAR

As a roaming scarecrow actor in CornStalkers, an oceanfront corn maze attraction exclusive to Morey’s FEARS, my makeup was one of the most interesting styles. I had to look like I was made of straw and burlap to be a convincing (and horrifying) scarecrow. My face was first covered in a layer of liquid latex and topped with crumbled rice cereal, which I dubbed “the Kellogg facial” (it’s all the rage this Halloween season!).

However, I looked liked a walking Rice Krispie treat, which might be the least scariest thing ever. At this stage of the process, I was more afraid of seagulls reenacting a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds on my face than anyone was afraid of me. After the makeup room stopped laughing at me, they put me in the airbrush chair and gave me a golden tan Snooki would envy.

Makeup artists also airbrushed some black accents over my eyes, mouth, neck and cheeks. I call this the Tim Burton effect as it effectively made me look like a stop-animation scarecrow version of myself. Next, artists dabbed my face liberally with fake blood, pus or other oozy fluids to complete my terrifying transformation.

The makeup removal process? That’s another story!

Visit me in CornStalkers at Morey’s FEARS- Terror on the Boardwalk (if you DARE!) this weekend. It’s your last chance this year to experience the only haunted pier in the world! Buy your tickets now to avoid the wait. We are anticipating large crowds on Saturday night so come Friday night to avoid longer lines.

I took my two children Matthew and Maria saturday night Oct 22 2011. They brought there friends Paulie, Jordan and Grace. I was so impressed with the pier! You are such an amazing organization for your thought out design and execution. Great Job and we will all be back next Halloween.Not to mention the Summer of 2012. Thanks and Happy Halloween. Lisa

Will the haunted Marineers Landing be open in the rain?

We plan to be open rain or shine. We generally do not close unless there is severe weather in the vicinity. In the event Morey’s Fears is canceled, we will fully refund the purchase price.
