Movie Review: The Haunted Palace (1963)

The Haunted Palace starring Vincent Price

What would you do if you found out that you inherited a haunted palace? Would you keep it? Sell it? Would you gamble to spend even a single night there? I’m not sure I would but I might be curious to see how haunted it actually is. For Charles Ward and his wife Anne they had no clue. They ignored dire warnings from the locals and decided to see the place for themselves. After all they now owned it. Can you blame them? Well we can pity them. In this gothic horror tale, Vincent Price plays dual roles as the original owner of the haunted palace and the unlucky descendant who inherits it.

Finding A Creepy Crawl Space

Creepy Crawl Space

There is an urban legend you may have heard of where the owners of a house find out that someone is living in the crawl space, attic or basement of their home. I recall a story from a real estate agent, that a family had found out someone was secretly living in their attic and would come out only when they were not at home or sometimes in the middle of the night. Can you imagine how scary that would be? I’ve heard similar stories like this through the years and then I saw the following story that totally creeped me out. Apparently two brothers were playing in a bedroom when one of them knocked the other into the bookshelf below. Continue reading

Scary Haunted Houses

scary haunted houses

What is it about Halloween that makes people want to get the shit scared out of them? Admittedly, I am one of those people. I enjoy scary haunted houses and the creativity some houses display in order to scare their guests. I remember going through a haunted house as a kid at my school’s Halloween carnival. We entered a dark room, had to crawl through a tunnel, and make it out of a maze all the while trying to avoid the monsters and traps that were inside. I had so much fun, I knew I was hooked for life. Since then I have been through many haunted houses, some better than others. Last weekend, I went to an awesome and very unique haunted experience called DELUSION: THE BLOOD RITE. It’s an interactive play set up in an old Hollywood mansion. Only 250 guests are allowed each night. Once you arrive at the mansion you are assigned a group and are given a wristband. Then while waiting for your group to be called, you can enjoy a Halloween themed drink such as the delicious Autumn Harvest, eat from a food truck or just chill in the antique couches they have set up in the mansions backyard. Once your group is called, you become part of the story. This attraction involves props, an interactive story, some incredible stunts and special effects. Not to mention a ton of great scares! I’d suggest you try to check it out if there are still tickets left. The trailer below will give you a little taste without revealing any spoilers. Continue reading
