One of the best things to happen was finally getting my very own, Dan Aykroyd endorsed, Crystal Head Vodka sets.
Who cares about the vodka? This is a cool set to have for any Halloween party decor. I got an awesome deal on the set while we were in Tennessee Saturday.
You can find out more about Crystal Head Vodka at their website HERE.
We completed our Terror Tour of local haunts this weeKEnD as well. We started with The Haunted Park (aka The Crypt). In case you missed it, the review can me found HERE.
For the last two years, The Crypt (renamed The Haunted Park for 2011) has been one of the best local haunts in the area. This year, it felt like it was a last minute production. I sure hope they rebound next year and bring back the super scary haunt they have provided in the past.
Still this is the BEST haunt for the younger crowd! Check my review for details.
I went back for seconds at The MECC Haunted Forest. Special thanks to Cindy Ringley and the entire Haunted Forest crew for allowing me to run lose in the woods. I got some pretty good pictures and videos thanks to there help. The updated review of this haunt can be found HERE.
Below is some of the pictures of my tour and a little video I compiled to document my hike through hell in The Haunted Forest :
|Listen to the skeleton.. he has information that may save you.|
|This life sized Chucky scared me a second time!|
|So many scarecrows. It's hard to figure out which ones are real.|
|The forest also houses the insane.|
|Things better left locked in cages than running around in the dark.|
|Love the Bucky Pall- Bearers|
|Why do undertakers always have to be so pushy for new business?|
|This zombie caught me off guard even though I knew it was laying there waiting for me.|
|Death is ready for his close up.|
|The cabin looks menacing. The inhabitants are!|
|Sorry, I can't stay for dinner, but it looks....almost dead....|
|He hates flashlights....he will offer to warm you up though,....by pushing you into a fire.|
|Must be the maids day off.|
|Human... the other white meat.|
|Yeah...he will chase you.....all the way down the hill. Be ready!|
Make sure you get out to see the premier haunted attraction of Wise County.
We were also able to squeeze in the last local Haunt to complete the Fearsome Four Tour of 2011, Backwoods Haunted House. Man was it busy. This little haunt has grown up and is terrorizing with the best of them. The review for Backwoods Haunted House can be found HERE.
Below you will find some photos and another video I compiled to show our visit to the haunted barn, full of a family of insane hillbillies, in the middle of nowhere:
|Coolest picture of the night. FCG is a good sign!|
|Make sure you get your tickets. Don't worry, they don't bite....hard.|
|Why does it look like the barn is eating customers?|
|Wonder why Freddie wants out of his cage so bad?|
|Horrid things at the window.|
|The guide said this was his dog. Not sure what breed it is, but I don't want to pet it.|
|Why oh why must there be 20 clowns in this dark little room?|
|This was "grandpa" We were told he could not walk.|
|Grandpa can crawl like a demon jacked up on Redbull though.|
|Hello Buzz. Wonder where he get's the nickname from?|
|Pretty sure there is a small army of Zombies in the graveyard.|
|A sinister clown in a convict's jumpsuit. That can't be good.|
|The outdoor graveyard was really spooky looking. Too bad there was a small army of evil running us down before we could stop and sight see.|
|The eyes really got me. I admit I jumped.|
|Don't touch Mama's TV. Bad things will happen.|
|Seriously...how many hellbillies are in this thing? They are everywhere!|
|The meat looks fresh. That could be a bad thing.|
|Our tour guide and his Mama. I am pretty sure they are putting us on the menu.|
|It's Piggy! Looks like pork is not on the menu and Human is!|
The wicKED video tour of Backwoods Haunted House.
This was my highest ranking local Haunt of 2011. Make sure you drop by this one of a kind haunt for a visit. I guarantee you will have one of the most unique horror experience ever. Just be ready to be scared stupid. You never know what lurks inside a haunted barn in the middle of the woods.
That was pretty much my weeKEnD in a pumpkin shell. We are are running on cruise control now as we just finish up last minute preparations for our upcoming party. Our costumes for the party and the second set for Halloween night are almost complete. We are going all out zombies this year. Details coming soon.
