Travel Channel's Making Monsters to Feature Chambers of Fear's Booth at Phoenix Comicon
Chambers of Fear owner Paul Boyd tends to get a little excited when describing everything that his company will be featuring at Phoenix Comicon this year. It's only natural, considering that the local haunted house's booth at the event will be twice as big as last year's and will sport even more monsters and frightening freaks wandering about.

And then there's the thing that Boyd's really excited about: the fact that the stars and crew of the Travel Channel's Making Monsters will be on hand at the Chambers of Fear booth during the first night of Comicon creating a spectacularly creepy creature while filming an episode of the television program.
According to Boyd (a local haunted house impresario who has been creating scary attractions across the Valley for more than 25 years), the choice to show off Chambers of Fear's Comicon booth on an episode of the show stemmed, in part, from the working relationship he's had over the years with Distortions Unlimited, the Colorado-based company that's featured on Making Monsters.
Boyd says he's regularly purchased various monsters and props from Distortions Unlimited and is friends with its owners, Ed and Marsha Edmunds, two stars of the show.
"We've had a working relationship with the people from Distortions Unlimited for a long time now and have always used their props over the years," Boyd says. "We've been talking about them coming to Phoenix when they started doing the show and have been just looking for the right time and right place. And this year's Comicon seemed like it was just a win/win situation for everybody."
Boyd says that the Edmunds and the rest of the Distortions Unlimited team will design a "zombie prop" and begin building it at their Colorado headquarters before bringing it to the Chambers of Fear booth at Phoenix Comicon on Wednesday, May 22. Then they will finish its construction on-site over the course of two days, including the event's opening night on Thursday, May 23.
