Nightmare in Whiting Woods Information
Hollywood Gothique finally visited this one-night-a-year-only Halloween home haunt, and it lived up to the fabulous reactions we had heard. It’s located atop a steep hill in the Whiting Woods neighborhood of Glendale, where eager trick-or-treaters line up along a thin path leading from the house down to the street and beyond – it’s popular and crowded, though it does little to publicize itself.
Note: The Facebook Page is for a realty company owned by the person who puts on the haunt; you may find some limited information there. There is also a Facebook event page for 2014. Other than that, up-to-date information is hard to come by.
This amateur effort has been haunting since 2002, sometimes at different locations. They launched a Kickstarted campaign to upgrade their props and effects for 2013 but fell short of their goal. Fortunately, the haunt took place anyway, continuing into 2014.
Nightmare on Whiting Woods did not present a walk-through home haunt in 2020, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, switching to a drive-by. Satisfied with the results, they reprised the presentation in 2021.
