Jobs: Phoenix haunted house hiring a few good zombies

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX – If you’re looking for a job and love a good scare, especially if you’re delivering said scare, then you might want to consider applying to work at The 13th Floor Haunted House.

The 13th Floor is Arizona’s newest haunted house and it is looking for zombies.

“Arizona has seen nothing like this before,” said Timothy Pugsley.

There are 100 positions available for the Halloween season. The casting call is Thursday, 6 p.m.-8 p.m., at 2814 W. Bell Road, Suite 1430.

“We’re hiring for everything,” Pugsley said. “If you’re enthused and willing to learn, you want to get in here. We’re looking forward to having you.”

Those behind The 13th Floor say this isn’t just another haunted house.

“The 13th Floor is an intense, graphic, theatrical show that will take you on a gut-wrenching ride of visceral thrills and psychological horror," 

According to Haunt World Magazine, The 13th Floor has five of the top 13 haunted houses in the entire country, with the Phoenix scare-fest coming in at No. 7.

“It’s a mega haunted house, offering one of the most detailed and terrifying haunted houses in America,” reads the magazine’s review. “Featuring two attractions that thematically span classical horror to modern-day zombie apocalyptic carnage [in Zombieland], this haunted house is a must see.”

The 13th Floor takes part of its inspiration from the legends surrounding the 13th floor and the superstitions attached to the number 13. The legends and myths are so pervasive and the superstitions run so deep that many modern skyscrapers don't have a named 13th floor.

It also borrows from the theory of "secret" 13th floors that are the sites of "sinister or clandestine" goings on, exposing the "oddities and strange occurrences" that can happen in such places.

"[T]he majority of these locations are currently inhabited as a home for the fortunate or unfortunate souls, living and dead, that have discovered their secret locations ...."

It is to one of those "secret locations" that The 13th Floor will take you, laying bare all that goes on there.

The 13th Floor opens September 23, and run through the entire month of October with a possible special event in November.
