In anticipation of Halloween, we are trying to put together and post videos of our favorite haunts. A couple weeks ago we posted one for Spooky House; now we have one for an amateur yard haunt called The Witch's Castle in Studio City (not far from where the Hallowed Haunting Grounds used to be). This is a kid-friendly haunt (though they should probably be accompanied by an adult if they are very young), not nearly as spooky as the old Haunting Grounds but great fun for families. What is especially nice is the influence they have had on their neighbors, who are all trying to keep up with the Jones, turning much of Shadyglade Avenue into a full-blown neighborhood haunt, where adults and their kids trick-or-treat together (kids get candy, mom and dad get a glass of wine).
