Reign of Terror: Video Flashback

The Reign of Terror – a wonderful Halloween attraction in Thousand Oaks – has been growing from year to year, beginning as a yard haunt, expanding to a community haunt at the Conejo Recreation Center, and finally moving to Janss Marketplace in 2009, where it returns for 2010 (although in a different, even larger space, above Gold’s Gym). Unlike many Halloween haunted houses, this one really does resemble a haunted house, offering an amazingly detailed walk through the long spooky corridors what appears to be a crumbling mansion. The 2010 version has appended a section near the end that simulates an asylum, and there are more actors throughout, but this video from 2009 should provide a reasonably accurate glimpse of the interior decor and many mechanical devices designed to unnerve you.
