VENISHA VON MORTIS
NORTH CAROLINA REP
“Who is this irresistible creature who has an insatiable love for the dead?” My favorite lyric from a legendary song and probably the best way I know how to describe me. My name is Venisha. I have been involved with the haunt industry for several years now, but I’ve always had a love for Halloween, horror and all things spooky. Growing up the only goth girl in a small southern town with only three main red lights and no local haunts, I had to relocate to a larger area to get started in the industry, but once I found a way to be involved, I instantly discovered a new passion. I immersed myself in all aspects of haunt life from special effects makeup to costume and set design to acting and scare tactics. I’m proud to say that I learned from some of the best in the business. I recently decided to step away from acting to focus more on my career as a SFX makeup artist, but I wasn’t ready to leave the haunt world completely behind, so I was super excited when I was asked to become a part of the Scurryface team. I’ve always been one to give a truthful opinion no matter what. No holds barred. I’ll tell you my honest opinion. I like to think I have a keen eye for detail and creativity. I always strive to stand out from the crowd and be remembered for doing my own thing, so I’m instantly drawn to anything innovative. Originality is something that will always win me over. The best haunts to me are the ones that can transform the atmosphere you’re in and make you feel like you’ve stepped into a different world entirely. I love the sensation of being scared. There’s no greater thrill to me than screaming at the top of my lungs, terrified to the point where my adrenaline is pumping and my heart rate and feet are running wild! So get ready to run away and escape with me, as I help guide you through some of the best haunts around this fall season! I can’t wait! It’s going to be a real scream!
