Behind the Scenes at Screams

Every Halloween, adrenaline nuts seek out hauntings. They go on ghost tours or visit haunted houses. But to create a convincing haunt takes a lot of work and a lot of makeup. This is what we learned from a behind-the-scenes tour of Screams in Waxahachie. The make-up artists spend hours applying that  "freshly dead" look on characters, or creating a convincing vampiric snarl. Videographer Jourdan Aldredge gives us an insider's glance at this process and a few tricks of the trade.
