Description: This yard haunt has been spooking its Hollywood neighborhood in Los Angeles for a few Halloween seasons, but this year they are expanding their scope. Formerly known simply as “Haunted Hollow,” the amateur attraction is morphing into a sort of anthology: the connecting link is the “Haunted Diary,” which will open every Halloween to a new page, featuring a new theme. Although the 2012 presentation re-uses the “Haunted Hollow” name, the proprietor promises all new frights.
Haunted Hollow 2012 will take Los Angeles Halloween fans back to 1974 to experience the terror and mystery of the Halloween night when the Dent family massacred the townspeople of Paxton and then disappeared, never to be seen again.
The Haunted Diary promises a “classic, vintage Halloween feel” that will recreate a 1970s small town. Trick-or-Treaters will first pass through cornfields and a swamp on the outskirts. Next, they will enter the village of Paxton and encounter the victims, before proceeding inside the Dent residence and the Paxton School house.
The experience is not recommended for younger children. The front yard will be decorated (and perhaps populated with live monsters), and candy will be handed out for children too timid to enter the haunt.
Dates: Friday, October 27 and Wednesday, October 31st, 7:30pm-11:30pm
Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
