Halloween Home Haunts

Decorated Yards, Walk-Through Mazes, Performances & Other Amateur Attractions

haunte house blinking eyesHalloween in Los Angeles is a very special time – one might even call it the most wonderful time of the year – when horror enthusiasts create elaborate Yard Haunts (or, in some cases Garage Haunts) in order to terrify appreciative trick-or-treaters just for the love of doing it.

 These neighborhood home haunts usually feature lawns and/or houses decorated to resemble graveyards; some offer walk-through haunted mazes (although few if any actually allow you inside the house itself). Most are open on Halloween and one or two nights before or after. Almost all are free and open to the public; some accept donations, either to off-set their costs or to benefit local charities. Although we categorize these Halloween attractions as “amateur” because they are non-profit, some are operated by industry veterans and feature professional-looking special effects.
