For fans of the best ride at Disneyland (it's not Pirates of the Caribbean, so shut up), there's nothing better than sharing memories of the ride that enthralled us as baby bats and continues to delight even the most delicate of horror explorers.
Foolish Mortals is in the final steps of their filmmaking journey, and they need your help to complete their production!

Foolish Mortals is an examination of the fan culture surrounding Disney’s Haunted Mansion attraction. Director James H. Carter II will be digging into the lives, creative work and experiences of the countless masses who have reached out to share their interest in our mutual obsession, looking for the reasons they’re in love with this attraction while unearthing the ghostly materials within.
Some of the people scheduled to appear in the film are Disney legend Rolly Crump, artist Topher Adam, former Imagineer Jason Surrell, Nora See, Tristan Risk, Robert Kurtzman, Dutch Bihary, Sandie Schnieder, Imagineer Terri Hardin, Axelle Carolyn, Mike Mendez, Spooky Dan Walker, Lance Henriksen, and many more!
With help from several sponsors and some of the film’s loyal supporters, the filmmaker’s were able to shoot interviews in New York, New Jersey, and Seattle over the summer months of 2016. During the month of October they will be shooting interviews in Orlando, Las Vegas and Southern California. They are seeking just a little bit more financial assistance to help cover the cost of travel and equipment rentals.
