Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group Acquires Legendary Fear Farm Attraction In Partnership

Another Scream-Filled Year of Fear Begins on Sept. 19, with Opening Day at Fear Farm and 13th Floor Haunted House

Phoenix, AZ, September 14, 2014 – Haunted house fanatics should prepare for their worst fears to become a reality this 2014 Halloween season with the new partnership between the iconic Fear Farm and the intense, cutting-edge 13th Floor Haunted House. Previously run by separate companies, now Fear Farm will feature set design and direction from the 13th Floor Haunted Houses’ award winning production team, the Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group.

Fear Farm, located at 2209 N. 99th Avenue, in Phoenix, known as a long standing tradition in Phoenix for generations, with older siblings and neighbors reciting stories being passed down for 15 years about their experience of finally making it out alive, and living to tell their tale. Or remembering those who may have fallen behind to find their way through the haunted corn fields alone. What Fear Farm fans have come to expect year after year will only rise to a whole new level of terror. The Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group has a razor sharp track record with multiple successful haunts throughout the country with the promise to bring your worst fears to life at Fear Farm, as well.

“We are so excited to bring Phoenix two amazing haunted attractions in 2014 with 13th Floor and Fear Farm! Each one is unique and guaranteed to deliver an amazing and entertaining way to celebrate the Fall season,” said Chris Stafford, 13th Floor Entertainment Group.

This year, if Halloween fans plan to enjoy multiple haunted attractions in Phoenix, the Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group is excited to offer two quality venues to get your scream on. Both establishments will continue to feature different themes, actors and special effects, but are excited to bring a higher level of quality in haunt technology to residents in the Valley. To better serve groups of all ages, Fear Farm is an excellent choice, as the format is more open to the public with vendors and areas for less brave souls or younger children to hang out and wait it out for the rest of the group. During the 2014 season, Fear Farm will hold many community events and feature a family night, where a family of four can enjoy Fear Farm for a reduced price. As for the 13th Floor Haunted House, it’s not meant for scaredy cats as the content and characters of the haunt are far more intense, in-your face and take place in small, dark quarters, and therefore is not recommended for young children.

Opening Night:
Start the scare season off with us on Friday, Sept. 19, for Charity Night at either horrifying attraction, Fear Farm or the 13th Floor Haunted House!

About Fear Farm:
Fear Farm is Phoenix’s largest Halloween event. Now under the production of the Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group, Fear Farm will be the ride of your life!

Dusk. The grey time, in between the reality of day and the unknown of night. Your mind fills in what your eye cannot see.

In a cornfield, you can look above and see all that surrounds you, but if you look below, you cannot even tell what might be a few feet in front of you. The stalks surround you.

You hear a noise, and forget for a moment that it might just be the wind, You run like the wind, the leaves of the cornstalks brush against the side of your face. You are blind as to what is ahead, and even blinder to what is behind you.

You know it is your mind playing tricks on you, that the sound you hear is the wind, or the echoes of your own footsteps, or just some small animal. Even so, it is that tiniest of possibilities that there is a something chasing you, a something that might mean you harm, that drives you now. That remote chance outweighs any worry that you are overreacting. As long as you make it out of the cornfield, you will be all right. It’s the cornfield that drives your mind into terror. See if your mind can reason with Terror in the Corn! Fear Farm is located at 2209 N. 99th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85037.

MAX Agency Press Release – September 13, 2014

Max Agency has recently welcomed new Toronto Model and Actor including future Toronto high fashion and runway model Helen Rudnicki.

Toronto, ON, September 13, 2014 – Max Agency has recently welcomed new Toronto Model and Actor including future Toronto high fashion and runway model Helen Rudnicki. I asked Helen why she decided to pursue modeling and become a part of MAX Agency.

“I thought it would be something fun to do. I was always told I should be a model, I guess that’s what all tall girls are told, so when I was approached I thought it would be something fun to try. It’s a great opportunity. It’s not something everyone can do or is able to do so I thought I should see what it’s all about. It’s a really interesting industry with a lot of aspects to it. I thought it would be interesting and cool to give it a try.”

Helen is currently studying archeology and anthropology in University and I asked her where her education stands in relation to the industry, what she has done so far and what she is doing right now to better herself as an artist, “I’ve been looking into doing some more acting classes but I haven’t found a place to study, I’m doing lots of yoga and I’m thinking of doing some kickboxing classes with my sister to spend some time with her and stay active.”

I had the pleasure of conducting this interview with Helen in person as opposed to over the phone so I asked what brought her into MAX Agency on this particular day, “I came in to get some measurements done and some body shots so all of my information would be up to date.”

Helen had her Polaroid photo shoot done at MAX Agency and her measurements taken and recorded for future reference to be used as a template to keep the models info up to date. I asked Helen what her other photo shoots have been like, “I’ve only done my portfolio shoot and a few shoots with my friends. I did a nude shoot with one of my friends for fun to see how comfortable I was and what my level of fitness would allow me to do and I’ve had two auditions, one to play Audrey Hepburn and the other was a runway parody using real runway models.”

In addition to going to University Helen also works as a bartender and server, “I love to cook. I’m gluten, rice, egg and dairy free. I love cooking and I love to do yoga.” After graduation Helen sees herself getting in to the raw food industry, “I have a lot of food restrictions and allergies and it made me realize how unhealthy people are in general. I also plan to do more modeling and acting.”

The purpose of Helen’s visit to MAX Agency was particularly for consideration for International submissions to experience the industry from another part of the world so I asked Helen where she would like to go,“In the world I’ve always loved to travel. I would love to go to South America. Anywhere in the world except for places that aren’t safe right now. I’ve always wanted to go to Greece. I would love to do runway, editorial, underwear and Victoria secret kinds of things. I enjoyed The Talent Shop Academy. I’ve always loved to perform and it’s something I would seriously love to stay involved in.”

It sounds like things have been pretty good for Helen with MAX Agency so far, “Things have been good. I’ve been submitted for lots of roles, keeping contact is really good. I’m excited to keep going and see where it goes.”

MAX Agency’s Bookers are currently looking for new Talent! If you are interested we highly recommend visiting and filling out an Application. Wishing MAX continued success in the industry we’re looking forward to future press releases featuring individual talent and projects and finding out more about MAX!
