Welcome One and All!

For all you Halloween Fanatics....this will be a review and links site of the Best Haunted Houses in the country that my wife Lisa and I have had the pleasure - or displeasure - of gracing....

I've been a *huge* Halloween and horror fan since I can remember...I dunno...it just brings the kid in me out...by the end of September, our place is suitably adorned and we await each weekend with anticipation of which haunts to hit next....

We've been blessed enough to be able to travel quite a bit around the country and see some wonderful attractions and the cities they lurk in...and we're hoping to pass on the fun we've had on to anyone willing to listen in....

SINISTER RETROSPECTIVES: The Photos of Halloween 2017

For what it was. 2017 was an interesting year in regards to the Halloween Season - while not what we had hoped, we still did quite a lot...and I have the pictures to prove it!

We began on Labor Day weekend at the Land of Illusion (www.landofillusion.com) with Tyler and Nora Proffit...this was their 20th year, and they did it up in style...








A magnificent Heavy Metal Fireworks display marked the occasion...

Yet another year for the USS Nightmare (www.ussnightmare.com)...a primo experience, as ever, located in Newport, KY, acrossf rom Cincinatti, OH, and this was their 25th year...



















Also this year - for the first time - we went and saw Sandyland Acres Haunted Hayride (www.sandylandacres.com) in Petersburg, KY - one of the greats for this sort of thing in the Midwest...amazing place, and we captured a lovely early fall sunset as well...



















We did some brief guest acting at a local haunt...there some beautiful evenings, and we had some great makeups to boot...






















A trip to Chicago, although rainy, yielded some interesting images and a brief encounter with Svengoolie (www.svengoolie.com) himself!!!! 






Our Annual Halloween Bash weekend with our Godkids Bonnie and Shaun turned out to be amazing as ever, with trips to Foy's in Fairborn, OH, The Devil's Attic (www.thedevilsattic.com) in Louisville, KY, and our annual Halloween Bash as well...





























































...and on a similar note, these are all from God-daughter Bonnie's camera, used with her kind permission...



































Some of the outlying areas had some interesting haunts as well...including one video from our friend Colleen in Kettering, OH...




































...and, of course, the return of the local favorite, the Stoddard Avenue Pumpkin Glow was truly a reason to celebrate! 









































































































..and what would a year end retrospective be but without a look at the Mischief of Halloween Night...?

Special thanks again to our Godkids Bonnie and Shaun for allowing us to post these - their first crack at their own home haunt in Rockford, Illinois...VERY impressive, to say the very least!
































Hope you Halloween 2017 was a Happy One! 
HERE'S TO A TERRIFIC 2018 SEASON!!!!!!
