Local hauntings sure to excite

Thursday, October 2, 2008

Do you dare to enter the haunted house that still has people missing in it from last year? If you are brave enough to dare the frightful, then head out to 1991 W. CR 200 S on Friday and Saturday nights this month.

Sponsored by Affordable DJ Service, refreshments and other items are available along with restrooms. All proceeds will benefit the Cunot Community Center.

Those bringing a canned good will get a dollar off their admission. For more information contact Jeff at 765-795-3461.

The Putnam County Sheriff's department is sponsoring a Haunted Trail at the County Jail on Oct. 23, 24 and 25 from 8 to 10 p.m. The cost to attend the event is a toy or monetary donation that goes to Toys for Tots.

The Haunted Trail will be located in the woods on the south side of the jail located at 13 Keightly Rd, Greencastle. For more information call 765-653-1810.

Fright Manor is located on Indianapolis' scary southside, where scaring is an art. They have added a new haunted sight called Psychomanthium.

Fright Manor is an old fashioned haunted house where there's a scare around every corner. You may think that you're scared of hospitals now, but wait until you enter Fright Manor Haunted House.

Can you make it thru all of the bloody gore? Can you sneak by the chain man in the dark? You'll need to pre-register you with our nurse in the waiting room of Morbid Manor Hospital. See if you can get past Doctor Butcher without getting operated on. If you can't get out of Fright Manor, Zombie Rob will take you away in his hearse.

Psychomanthium (which means to conjure the dead) is currently going through the torturous three's and giving Fright Manor a torturing headache.

Upon entering Psychomanthium, you can visit the zombies in the funeral parlor before they plant them and visit them after they are planted in the nightmare graveyard.

Fright Manor Haunted House is located 2400 block of east Southport Rd., on Derbyshire Rd., Indianapolis. For information call 317-767-7540 or visit their Web site.

Single admission is $18. All three haunts are included in this price. Group rates are available. A $3 off coupon is available on their Web site at www.frightmanor.com.

  • I was wondering why you didn't say anything about the downtown Trick or Treat event? Main Street has hosted the Downtown Trick or Treat event for at least 8 years. The local businesses stay open till 6pm and hand out candy and treats to close to a thousand kids each year. I suggust to reporters to look out side their windows and see what happening out side their box.

  • I do believe the article was just for "Haunted Houses/Trails, I'm sure the reporter, was wanting to focus on that.
