CanScare is a Canadian based arts collective dedicated to creating exquisitely themed and highly immersive holiday-themed art, performances and media.
Canscare is a collective of professional designers and special effects artists who come together to share their love of Halloween and all things spooky and macabre. Founded in 2016 by puppeteer and special effects artist Brendan James Boyd, CanScare has been a way to indulge in creepy puppets and Halloween frights while gathering fellow artists and local talents together to work towards truly one-of-a-kind experiences.
CanScare's mandate is to create frightfully fun experiences for a wide range of audiences, including family friendly material. CanScare focuses on supernatural and monster genre work, and creates uniquely entertaining and eerie events, escape rooms, and shows that highlight the ooky spooky fun of Halloween without the attendant violence and buckets of gore.
