The scariest haunted house this election year? 'Doomocracy'

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — One artist thinks American politics are so scary this election season that he's created a haunted house around them.

Pedro Reyes' satirical, performance-based installation is called "Doomocracy" or "The Haunted House of Political Horrors."

The theatrical experience at the sprawling Brooklyn Army Terminal in New York City is timed for both the elections and Halloween. Reyes says it's "a perfect recipe" for blending "scary" ingredients.

Visitors navigate through a series of darkened rooms that deal with political and social issues like climate change, gun violence and painkiller addiction.

One room simulates a funeral parlor. An undertaker explains a new trend in fashioning coffins in the shape of people's favorite sugary foods.

Short skits by actors include audience participation.

The installation runs on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Nov. 6.
