“He was the most unlikable character I ever met, I was really afraid of him, and I dreaded him coming to town.”
James Torrence (Neff’s son)
Bill Neff - “The Master of Many Haunts,” brought to his midnight spook show to audiences all along the eastern seaboard! An assortment of zombies, spooks, ghosts with other varied and weird attractions.
Newspapers proclaimed, “Dr. Neff’s show makes eyes pop! Pulses hop! Hearts skip a beat!”
Neff was complex man who succumbed to his own creation and one of the best spook show magicians of this time. His theatrical attraction was entitled “Madhouse of Mystery,” a show that guaranteed suspense, shudder, shakes, and shivers!
Spook Shows are part of the history of magic, and were very popular between 1930 through 1960, where shows were held at midnight in conjunction with a horror film.
Bill Neff’s drug and alcohol abuse were very influential in his career and affected all those who around him.
