- Where is the Haunt? - The
haunt is on General Drive in Plainfield,
Illinois. CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTIONS!
- When is the Haunt?
The display will be up for folks to come by and
see starting Saturday October 29th, 2010. We call this the
"static" phase. There will be sound and lights and maybe
even some fog, depending on the ghouls, things may even go bump.
The "Live" Haunting takes places on Halloween Night from 4:30pm
until no one else wanders by. The live
haunting at the time of this update will have as many as 2 live
- Who are you???
We assume this question means, who are we, since you should
already know who you are. We are a couple of brothers
(nick named the Haunt Brothers) with
a deep (and perhaps odd) love for Halloween. We look forward to it
each and every year and begin planning the Haunting months
How long have you been doing this?
- We have been building haunted houses since we were little kids
and turned the crawl space of our parents home into a haunting.
Jeff has been doing this at his house since he first moved to
Plainfield in 1996. Michael came on board when he returned from
the military in 1999.
- How much does it cost?
- To you our guest??? Nothing. The haunting is free to
those who to dare to enter. We do not charge admission. We do
accept donation but do not ask for them. We have sought
support from several of the local hardware stores for
contributions to maintain the structure, but when it comes time
for them to lend a promised hand, they can be harder to find
then our ghosts!!! Otherwise, there is a budget we set aside
every year for the purpose of adding new spooks and to keep the
current one's happy.
- Who are your supporters? - We are glad
you asked, they have helped us out, so if you can, why not help
& Overman-Jones Funeral Home -
They step up and lend us
a casket every year, nice bunch of people, a little stiff, but all in all
they are dead on when it comes to showing us their support.
County Coroner - NEW 2005! Funny thing about Haunting
and the folks we attract. The good people over at the
County Morgue were just dying to lend us a hand.......a
leg........a spare heart...... No, we are just kidding, this
year's addition of body bags was donated by these folks!
PLEASE, We appreciate you favoring our supporters, BUT! PLEASE,
PLEASE! Do not send them any business!!!
Designed the new logo for our web site and helps
with prop design. Thanks Ursus, love the design!
- Age Appropriate?
- For all the concerned parents out there, the haunt is, shall
we say, scaleable based on the individuals walking through it at
that particular time. If little kids are coming through, the
ghosts and ghouls mind their manners and try to behave.
The same goes for older kids and adults, if the ghosts think
they can scare you and make you enjoy it, they will!
How can I help? - If
you are truly interested in lending a hand, please contact us via
e-mail. We can always use more "live" ghouls at the
haunting. If dressing up isn't your style, then there is
always the construction and deconstruction of the haunting to be
done, and a body is always welcome (warm or cold). If you
want to help in a donation sense, ask us what we need and swing by
your local hard ware store, or drop off candy in sealed bags.
All we really ask is that if you like what you see, tell a friend,
Word of mouth helps bring the victims to us!
