Description: The most supremely spook Halloween yard haunt in Los Angeles opens its doors for three nights this Halloween season, offering a crypt-full of astounding special effects that rival those of any professional haunted attraction.

Visitors take a walk around the home of Captain Jacks, whose family died in an influenza epidemic, sending the grieving pater familias back to the ocean on a voyage from which he never returned. The family's spirits still linger, manifesting in an uncanny fashion guaranteed to produce gooseflesh.

The House of Restless Spirits tends to draw a crowd, and the owner shuts down promptly at closing time (that is, you can't get into line at 10:59 and expect the house to remain open another half-hour).

Free.
