DIY Haunted House (or barn, backyard, church or school)


DIY Gothic Haunted House for Halloween Details for activities, sound effects, decorations and costumes for an authentic haunted house, right out of Dark Shadows.  I created this haunted house in high school (1981) A group of friends and I did the haunted house in our church basement. Visitors went from room to room. We sold tickets as a fundraiser for church missions. The whole community turned out and loved it. My mom brought my 4-year-old brother and 2-year-old sister. The Cujo room scared them silly (a guy dressed like a dog rushed out guests). My brother BJ was terrified, but he knew he had to protect the ladies. So he summoned his courage, shouted at the "dog" and smacked him across the face! That brave little boy died in 1982 in an accident. This is dedicated to you, buddy. Love, your big sister. This would be a great literature, art or theater class activity. View more »
