Amidst the wails and screams from mazes and scare zones, it is easy to overlook that Knott's Berry Farm Halloween Haunt is hosting a gallery of macabre art this season. Into The Fog, which debuted last Halloween, is back for 2019, unobtrusively housed alongside the usual branded merchandise within "Bizarre Bazaar" (the rechristened Nautilus gift shop near the theme park's western entrance). The exhibition includes dozens of original works inspired by the myriad horrors lurking within Knott's Scary Farm.
Styles range from terrifying to whimsical, from the ultra-lounge style zombie bride holding a candle instead of a cocktail to the sinister sisters posed before wallpaper resembling the infamous carpet pattern from Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. Highlights include "Say Cheese and Die" by Jeff Delgado, which resembles a group portrait of the Halloween Haunt's monsters, old and new, with the Green Witch holding pride of place just about dead center.
The selection includes expensive originals and affordable prints, but art connoisseurs must purchase a ticket to enter Knott's Berry Farm. Fortunately, Bizarre Bazaar is open not only at night for the Halloween Haunt but also during the park's regular daylight hours of operation. The address for Knott's Berry Farm is 8039 Beach Boulevard in Buena Park. Into The Fog's webpage is here, but it contains little useful information.
