Political Horrors on Display at Brooklyn 'Doomocracy' Exhibit

Scared about next month's presidential election? Have we got a haunted house for you.

"Doomocracy" opened Friday in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

The exhibit is described as a "political house of horrors."

Visitors make their way through a large maze showcasing fears that are much more real than ghosts and monsters - like gun violence and climate change.

Organizers say next month's elections are a perfect match with the Halloween season.

"There's a kind of collective psychosis that everybody's living because of this election, in particular," said Artist Pedro Reyes.

"You'll kind of navigate through a series of about 14 rooms, it's kind of an immersive experience, and each room contends with a different political and social issue," said Creative Time Executive Director Katie Hollander.

"Doomocracy" runs until November 6.
