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.

Dark Shadows Home Haunt - Orland Hills, IL
Up next is the very first home haunt we ever visited - Dark Shadows Home Haunt in Orland Hills, IL. It's hard to beat Dark Shadows for its atmosphere. The hard work put into it really shines, and we make a point of visiting this one every year. It's really fun to just look at all of the props and see how well crafted they are, and the garage haunt is always good for a startle or two. For those thinking that home haunts aren't worth it - think again. For no cost (unless one wants to donate), one gets a display and a haunted house walkthrough. Do yourself a favor and check Dark Shadows out - you'll be glad you did!
