Commentary - The Massacre Haunted House July 2015 - Montomgery, IL

Last but certainly not least comes the final haunt that was part of our Chicago Frights​ weekend of fun - The Massacre Haunted House​ in Montgomery, IL.

Always one of our favorites, the Massacre was excellent as usual. There were some new additions and changes, but the feel and the heart of the Massacre remained the same, which is perfectly fine with us.

The acting was outstanding as well - if you like humor with your scares, you can't beat the Massacre!

Walkthrough - Village Cemetery Yard Display 2014 - Glenwood, IL

FULL REVIEW: http://www.horrortourers.com/village-cemetery-2014.html

Village Cemetery is one of our favorite local haunts. We look forward to seeing this one every year, and it's easy to get to for us as it's right down the street from Horror Tourer home base.

As one might expect, Village Cemetery is - wait for it - a cemetery display. The property has a lot of space and it is used quite effectively. From tombstones to crypts to coffins to a hearse being pulled by a couple of skeletons, Village Cemetery has a little of everything.

Commentary - Thanatophobialand 2014 - Lockport, IL

FULL REVIEW: http://www.horrortourers.com/thanataphobialand-2014.html

One of our all time favorite yard displays has to be Thanatophobialand in Lockport, IL. This display has a great  mix of the eclectic and the historical, the creepy and the educational, with some just plain old odd things thrown in for good measure. There's definitely something for everyone here, and there is a lot to see, so plan on spending some time if you visit.

The 2014 setup was the best we've seen in all of our years of visiting. It reminded us of why we love coming here year after year, and why we eagerly anticipate seeing what's new each time we do visit. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary, or something that's quirky without being too creepy or weird, or even if you like your haunts sprinkled with a dose of oddball humor, check out Thanatophobialand. It's one our or top haunts of 2014!
