Mike Brunner

Highly skilled master builder Mike Brunner draws on a lifetime of experience to craft jaw-dropping effects and experiences. As the owner of his own thriving chiropractic practice, Mike has built almost two decades of experience as a small businessman. That experience proved invaluable when, in 2012, he launched Doktor Halloween, a full-service haunt-creation company designing and building custom haunted attractions from the initial story to every detail of the finished installation. Mike has honed his haunting skills through extensive technical training and experience. He is a certified 3G/4G welder in addition to his training in environmental design and industrial modeling. Most recently he has put this expertise to good use as the Props Installer for the Walking Dead attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights 2016 – there he worked with the creative design team to lock down and install a props arrangement that met creative, safety, and technical standards for 11 terrifying scenes. His additional projects have included major theme park installations in Shanghai, the Redtube film Escape the Night, the interactive theater experience “Sunday Night Seance,” and multiple haunted walk-through attractions including being the Creative Director/Head Fabricator for Evil Twin Studios for 4 years. Professionalism and creativity, expertise and imagination – Mike unites all the qualities that bring a haunt to spine-chilling life.
