Did you know Fort Myers is getting a professional haunted house this October? Special effects makeup artist, Wayne Anderson, is coming back to his hometown to open Legends of Oblivion, the newest Halloween Attraction of Southwest Florida. It’s a self-guided walk-through attraction, featuring a maze, with five large rooms. Each room will be unique and tell a story of ‘Chapter One: Curse of the Swamp Witch.’ Filled with terrifying live actors, amazing special effects and movie quality monsters coexisting in the Mist Of Terror coming from an unworldly fantasy unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.

Wayne Anderson first got into monster makeup back in 2006, when he entered a local Halloween costume contest. He competed and won every year, building up a portfolio which later got him into Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles, California. Since then he competed in Season 4 of ‘Face-Off’, a TV series on SYFY, and worked on a number of hit movies. He did sculpting and monster makeup for IT, Stranger Things, Bright, Predator, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and many more.

Legends of Oblivion is set to open on October 5th, 2018. Tickets will go on sale in September, and the Haunted House will run on 16 select days in October. They will be in need of volunteers, so if you are a local SWFL artist, keep your eyes out for that!
