Scariest Feature: Assisting serial killers with their horrible plans
Now in its ninth year, Nightmare is disorienting New Yorkers with an entirely new iteration of horror. The new installment is ghost and goblin free. Instead, Killers plays on the grim reality of history’s most infamous serial killers. There is a maze of elaborately crafted rooms, each devoted to a different murderer, among them Jeffrey Dahmer, the Zodiac Killer, and Ted Bundy. Each space presents a chill-inducing scene, another graphic glimpse inside a psycho’s mind. Actual serial killer props, like the execution letter of John Wayne Gacy, add to the awful realism.
