We are The Horror Tourers - visiting home haunts and professional haunts in and around the Chicagoland area and reviewing them. We started visiting professional haunted houses as a group in the early 2000s and around 2010 we started visiting home haunts that were as well done, and in some cases better, than the professional haunts. Over the last few years we have been documenting our experiences with photos and videos, including our on-the-spot reviews.

October 15, 2013 - Basement of the Dead
Just posted our review of Basement of the Dead in Aurora - a great haunt
high on theatrics! Basement of the Dead is one of two haunts located in the same
place. The other is Shattered, a 3-D haunt experience. Both are worthwhile to
visit. First up is Basement of the Dead, the more traditional of the two
haunts. It is located in an actual basement, and visitors have to descend
stairs to get into it. The first scene is one of large hooded figures lining
the walls. It’s really hard to tell if they are real or not, which is the mark
of a well-planned haunt experience.
