HALLOWEEN – NYC Halloween Parade – NY

NYC HALLOWEEN PARADE

We didn’t have much time to spend at the parade, but we stopped by in between going to Bane Haunted House & seeing Then She Fell on Halloween night. I recommend spending the entire evening and arriving early so you can get close to the parade route and see everything. Even though we were only there for a short while, it was an incredible experience.

Walking into a Hoarder’s house hits a little close to home when it comes to biggest nightmares, so just the theme alone had me a bit frightened going in. I haven’t seen actors all season quite as passionate and determined to give it their all as this crew, not to mention it seemed like a never ending amount of them. The set design was well done and I loved the theme. They told a complete story of Willie Cleaver and Ciela Fate, which was wonderful. However, I have to admit it was really the actors that made this attraction one of the most memorable and fun. They were relentless which was incredible.

 

 

HAUNTS – Haunted Funeral Home – MI

HAUNTED FUNERAL HOME

The group of young ladies waiting to enter the Haunted Funeral Home, a uniquely frightening stand alone haunted attraction in an actual funeral home, scattered screaming and jumping on each other as soon as the door opened. They explained that they had been to a larger, professional haunt earlier in the season and weren’t scared but something about Haunted Funeral Home terrified them. Maybe it’s the area in which it’s located, or the history of the building, or simply the unknown…personally I often find smaller haunts in creepy locations more unpredictable than the larger more commercial haunts. This is definitely a creepy haunt for those reasons. It’s not a large space, but they do a good job using what they have. I thought the actors were a lot of fun and working hard. There wasn’t a clear story or large impressive animatronics around every corner like some of the larger haunts, but it was charming and fun. I had a great time visiting the Haunted Funeral Home.

Club Fear Twisted Manor is my favorite home haunt of 2019. I always enjoy a good home haunt and there are several in SoCal, a few in Santa Clarita even, but these clowns really knock it out of the park. I love the slider clowns in the front. They were scary, but also really great with the kids. The idea of visiting a clown at his house is a really fun theme. I love the misdirection in the maze itself. The effect that follows is also a wonderful scary surprise. I thought the makeup is stand out. The actors really understand the art of the scare and do a magnificent job. The set design was great. It’s a good length for a home haunt. Overall an excellent, scary home haunt that I highly recommend.

HAUNTS – Beware the Dark Realm – CA

BEWARE THE DARK REALM

Beware the Dark Realm is a popular home haunt in Santa Clarita. It has an impressive castle facade that you go through to enter this dark Halloween realm. The sets are well done. The actors are passionate. They make great use of their space making the path seem much longer than what you might expect from the outside appearance. It’s a fun home haunt that is clearly loved by the community. They always seem to have a good turn out for the event.

I hope you get the chance to attend Beware the Dark Realm this Halloween season. I look forward to seeing what they do next year.
