A new augmented reality app makes it possible for visitors of enabled haunted houses to view mysterious phenomena on their mobile devices. The Phantom Finder app from Grisly Manor Studios is available now on the iTunes and Google Play for $0.99.

The Phantom Finder Camera App uses augmented reality technology to overlay video of costumed characters and spooky objects when pre-defined markers are detected by the device's camera. The “Phantom Finder” logo in the AR app helps users identify attractions where such markers are installed.

Venues can “haunt” themselves by purchasing printed markers from Grisly Manor’s website at Each marker triggers a specific kind of supernatural visual on the screen of an iPhone, iPad, or Android device.

Visitors with the app installed can then reveal on screen what is invisible to the naked eye. Users of the app might see:

  • Dripping blood
  • Zombies
  • Devils
  • Demons
  • Ghost children

A printable Home Haunter Kit is also available for use in private residences.
