A haunted house like no other, HAUNTU was established in 2019, and has since been a popular go-to spot for all things horror. 

Offering scream-worthy haunted house experiences with lifelike set pieces, spirited performances by actors, improvised dialogue, and tonnes of clues to uncover, HAUNTU is a haven for both horror and theatre fans alike

But, what makes HAUNTU stand out among the rest is that you'll get to be part of the entire story, from unravelling the mysteries to witnessing haunting incidents.

The best part? Your decisions throughout the session can impact the story's ending! Nice lahh.

And here's where things get even more exciting — in collaboration with Pepsi, LIVESCAPE and HAUNTU are launching a limited-time-only event, Pepsi Lost In Karak!

A standalone event completely different from HAUNTU's previous episodes, Lost In Karak is taking place at the LINC, Kuala Lumpur, from 26 to 30 May.

As the event's name suggests, it takes inspiration from the infamous Karak highway. Horror enthusiasts will know that Karak highway, one of Malaysia's most haunted places, is known for its scary urban legends that can send chills down your spine. 

And now, HAUNTU wants to bring the dark legends of Karak to life through a 30-minute interactive session. Are you BOLD enough to take on the challenge? ;)

Excited dy? Here's a deeper look into the story of Pepsi Lost In Karak:

A huge corporation sent a group of scientists to a remote location somewhere on the west coast of Malaysia to acquire a rare type of wildflower. The wildflower is believed to contain properties that can be used in a vaccine. 

While on their way to the destination, the scientists' bus drifts away from the Karak highway and crashes in the middle of the forest. As the scientists attempt to make their way out of the forest, they encounter a mysterious creature. 

Wahh, super spooky, right? Boy, are you in for a terrifying ride.
