Creative That Works: October
Boo! For our ‘Creative That Works’ this month, we figured we would get into the spooky spirit and explore some of this season’s best Halloween themed creative work and activations. Here are a few we thought were executed so well, it was almost scary.

You rang? Booking.com and MGM Studios are making it possible to stay in the Addams Family Mansion with this immersive brand activation, just in time to celebrate Halloween and the release of the new Addams Family film. This real life replica of the supernatural mansion can actually be found in a townhouse in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The whole place is filled with on brand decor in the quintessential creepy family fashion.

Creepy, Kooky, and apparently in…Brooklyn? 🦇⚔️⚰️ At least for Halloween Weekend, the Addams Family Mansion 🏚 is on the market thanks to @bookingcom who turned a 🕯 19th Century Clinton Hill 🕸 walk up into Gomez and Morticia's famed 🕷 house of horrors 🧨. Would you sleep in a bed with a guillotine headboard? 📸 by @diannamcd
Retail Apocalypse “Zombies Are Back”

Luke Tinari has brought new (undead) life to the empty aisles of the old ‘Toys R US’ location in Flushing to create a spine-chilling, interactive zombie experience. We love it because it demonstrates successfully utilizing an abandoned retail space that could have gone to waste if it was not activated properly. Tickets to the haunted attraction can be found here.
