As part of Halloween 2014, legendaryyoutube Spaces and Guillermo del Toro are partnering to create haunted house sets in five cities worldwide, empowering YouTube creators to make amazing horror shorts.

Del Toro’s challenge to creators? “Scare me.”

Watch writer/producer/director Guillermo del Toro announce ‘YouTube House of Horrors: A Legendary Halloween’.

Without citizens taking on an active role in our country, we despair over what’s happening in Washington; the dysfunction of the legislature; the tribal problems that people feel toward one another. We despair over money-in-politics, which I do think is the poison in the system. If I were younger, that’s what I’d be doing – leading a constitutional amendment to get money out of the system. It’s all up to us – we can’t wait for somebody else to do it.

- Renowned author and presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin on the need to address the “poison” of money in politics.
