The Science of Fear

SECOND STAGE : Only at ScareLA. Margee Kerr is a sociologist who studies fear as she travels the world in search of scare-adventures. She has been conducting a scare study in the basement of the most infamous interactive extreme haunt in Pittsburgh, The Scarehouse Basement. Margee will share the most fascinating discoveries and insights she has uncovered while writing her book “SCREAM: Chilling Adventures in the Science of Fear,” named as a must read by the Washington Post.


Margee’s work has been featured in the New York Times, Good Morning America, Parade, Atlantic Monthly, and NPR’s Science Friday. You may have seen her on the National Geographic channel in Map of Hell, A&E‘s Buried Alive, and the History Channel‘s True Monsters.  Signed copies of her book will be available for purchase on the ScareLA showfloor.
