Ahh, the ye olde haunted house. A staple of any good roving carnival, Halloween party and, naturally, a horror convention. It’s come a long way since the days of grapes in a bowl as eye balls or spaghetti masquerading as brains. (Which by far makes the least sense anatomically…unless the brains had been put through a meat processor…anyways). Now top-notch haunted houses can be a showcase for horror makeup and animatronics. And of course, they’re also good for a jump or two.
Fort Fright is a Kingston based haunted house company who has been making the trek to Toronto annually for Festival of Fear (they do have a YYZ tie-in as TO’s own Boneyard Bargins creates the things that go bump in their house). RM took a tour. And it’s good. Bloody good.
