THE RETURN OF HAUNTCAST
Last November, due to various circumstances, a difficult decision was made and Hauntcast ceased broadcasting. Seemingly for good.
Not long after, a fan-based movement to revive the show began to take hold and gain momentum.
The Minions, along with some very generous vendors, made it happen and Hauntcast has returned from the grave to bring you its unique blend of haunt entertainment and information.
We are now subscription-based with exclusive vendor discounts for our subscribers, monthly giveaways, and more features every month. Whether you’re a home haunter, charity haunter, working in the haunt industry or a lover of all things Halloween, Hauntcast is the show that has something for everyone.
Just think of us as your haunting friend with benefits.

MEET THE HAUNTCAST SCREAM TEAM
CHRIS BAKER – Creator and G/Host
Chris began learning the “dark arts” at an early age by attending Catholic elementary school. The nuns beat the Jesus out of young Chris and sent him down a harrowing path. He pursued his masters in torture by attending Don Bosco high school located in the Combat Zone in Boston. Mixing and mingling with the harlots he passed to and from school further warped his already deranged mind. Upon graduation he vowed to seek vengeance on the world for serving an unjust sentence in an all boys high school. Once a year, on All Hallows Eve, he wreaks havoc upon his neighborhood as a way to gain closure on his past.

For fun, she likes to spike the punch at Church parties with her strongest passion potion and giggle at the ensuing hijinks.
