Last night I went on my very first haunted walk with my mom & my sister.
It's put on locally, and some of the proceeds go towards our local food bank.
I'd never been before, but it was a calm & relatively warm evening... a big foggy. Eearily "quiet," even...
PERFECT weather for a haunted walk!
To be honest, I wasn't expecting much.
Although the thought that some psycho might actually hide out in the woods and go on a murdering spree DID enter my mind on numerous occasions... like, hello!? Isn't this EXACTLY what happens in scary movies?
We got there around 9:00, and the "characters" had just started their break... there was a group or 2 in front of us, so we had about half an hour to kill... pardon the pun! ;)
We sipped on hot chocolate and stayed close to the bonfire.
Rocky Horror was playing too, so that was fun!
Finally it was our turn!
The walk started off by entering an old shed....
Right off the bat, I was taken aback by the props & makeup! It was CREEPY, dude! Seriously!
The first character was chained to a wall all bloody and begging us for help, another one was strapped to a table and the makeup made it look as though the skin on her face was melting off.
Disgusting.... but so well done!
The walk lasted just about half an hour, I think.
We were spooked by pretty much everything you could think of. There was a chainsaw wielding crazy guy in the woods... people locked in cages... creepy child-ghosts swinging & humming throughout the forest... even a exorcism happening right there in the middle of the woods.
I screamed like a girl.
And yes, I was hanging onto my mommy for dear life!
All in all, it was an interesting way to spend a Friday night!
If you're a horror movie buff and you like being scared, I'd totally recommend it!
Definitely not suitable for younger children... there is an age requirement of 8 years old, but that might even be a little young.
Have you been on a haunted walk or visited a haunted house lately!?
