With world-class design and the most informative and entertaining articles, 13th Hour Magazine is a must have for any haunted house owner or vendor.

Looking for the world’s best masks? Go no further than 13th Hour Magazine’s Gross Anatomy section.

13th Hour Magazine is not just about haunted houses and the products that go into them. Some of the articles in 13th Hour Magazine are geared purely at entertaining the reader. The Face To Face Celebrity Interview is one of these sections. Who doesn’t like reading an interview with a celebrity the likes of the legendary Dee Snider? And who knows, there may be something in the interview that gives you an idea on how to improve your haunt or for a new product.

It seems that each year, the industry is introduced to more and more new products. Companies are utilizing new technology that has taken haunted house props to an amazing new level. An industry that was once dominated by horribly unrealistic masks has now reached a level where a person wearing a mask could hold a conversation with some one that would never even know the person they are talking to is wearing a mask. As technology continues to progress, products become more imaginative and realistic. 13th Hour Magazine recognizes these new products in the Latest And Greatest Products section. Be sure to check out this section in each issue to see the hottest new products on the market.

Products are not the only things new in the haunt industry. New companies that supply to haunted attractions are emerging as well. 13th Hour Magazine pays tribute to these entrepreneurs in the section New Ventures.

While featuring people who are new to the haunt society, 13th Hour Magazine also understands that the industry has a rich and interesting history. In our regular section, Crypt Keeper, we feature a prominent person within the haunt industry. We introduce you to the person behind the haunter, show you the ups and downs of their career, successes and failures, and of course, we remind you what makes this person important to the industry. These are the people that have paved the way for the new haunters and continue to carve the path of the industry.

13th Hour Magazine wants to know what you think! Sure, we have tons of story ideas, but what we want to deliver is the information haunt owners and vendors want to see. Feel free to submit your ideas for stories to our editorial team. Have a subject you want to spout off on? Submit a story and photos for our Ghost Writer story. What is the new product that you can’t wait for haunt owners to see? Submit it for inclusion in the Latest/Greatest section of 13th Hour Magazine. Are you opening a new attraction, did your company win an award, or do you have some exciting news you want to share with the rest of the haunt community? Pass the news on to us and maybe it will be featured in our Haunted Hearsay section. We encourage our readers to be a part of 13th Hour Magazine in any way possible.

A main facet of 13th Hour Magazine’s website is the Haunt Hunter™. Haunt Hunter™ is the world’s most extensive and comprehensive haunted attraction search. But we need your help to ensure that we have the most up to date information possible. If you own a haunt, go to the submission page and sign your haunt up for Haunt Hunter™. 13th Hour Magazine wants Haunt Hunter™ to be the best Haunted Attraction search engine in the world

Once the information for Haunt Hunter™ is compiled, users will be able to search Haunted Attractions using a multitude of criteria. It doesn’t matter what the user is looking for, Haunt Hunter™ will allow them to find it. Looking for the scariest haunted house in America, or the most confusing corn maze? How bout a scream park that has a haunted house, a hayride and a dark ride or two? Need something that is rather tame for that little one that doesn’t like to be scared? Or maybe you’re looking for someplace to go while on vacation. Haunt Hunter™ will allow you to find any of this. Search by type of attraction, from scary to child-friendly, from dark ride to corn maze, Haunt Hunter™ can show you all of these. The search by selected area will allow users to search for a haunted attraction that is within so many miles of their zip code or city as well as the typical search by state feature.

As 13th Hour Magazine continues to evolve with the industry, one thing will remain constant – a commitment to being the leading publication in the haunt industry. We will continue to deliver world-class design with informative and entertaining stories that provide haunted attraction owners and vendors with the information they need to continue to grow and improve the industry.
