Gleefully Gore Amateur Walk-Through
Hollywood Gothique Says:
Perdition Home lives up to its own hype as the self-proclaimed “Goriest Home Haunt in Orange County,” but it is much more than a mere gorefest. Featuring a high quota of jump-scares, delivered through some clever hiding places, the amateur walk-through uses impressive murals and production design to bring a new theme to life each Halloween, each with its own distinctive aura – strange, weird, and unusual.

Perdition Home History
With its ghastly walk-through, Perdition Home established itself a grizzly delight for fans of hard-core Halloween horror, with a tone and intensity somewhat along the lines of the Backwoods Maze in Burbank – filled with eviscerated bodies and electric firecrackers for a jolting effect. However, Perdition Home offered more than gore; it was an elaborate home haunt, featuring impressive sets and more than a few surprises along its walk-through: such as the crashed spaceship for 2015’s theme, Necro Space.
Perdition Home reduced itself to a short walk-through for Halloween 2016 (some of the talent invested their energy in a nearby pro venture, Pumpkin Patch Haunt: The Flesh Yard, which had made a nice debut in 2015). Then Perdition Home returned in full force for Halloween 2017, with a new theme, “Brujos,” then followed up with “Death Cult,” a serial killer theme, for 2018.
In response to the Covid-19 lockdown, which prevented indoor haunts from operation, Perdition Home and The Fleshyard combined forces to create a professional haunted corn maze in 2020, which was rebranded as Dark Harvest for Halloween 2021 (reviewed here). Since then, Perdition Home has deleted its website and Facebook page, indicating that the yard haunt will not return.
Perdition Home was free but accepted donations to defray costs.
