Horror 365 (Not) Movie 331: Gloom House 757

Yesterday was, of course, Halloween, so I did a thing and decided to write a post about it. It is Halloween related and it is Post #331 after all. I’ve mentioned my good buddy Jorge Mendez on here a number of times. He hosts the Monday night open mic at Venue, is a major horror fan, and is the co-author of Candy & Rigor Mortis Vol. 2: Post Mortem currently available right here right now via Paypal and Venmo. Right. Shameless self-promotion, check.

Anyway, Jorge has always had these great Halloween parties where he’d decorate his house according to a specific theme: evil nursery one year (as if there’s any other kind), asylum another year, you get the idea.

Well eventually this evolved into an annual haunt which quickly took on a life of its own to the point where it’s now a maze he starts building in, like, late August and takes up his entire back yard.

Thus, Gloom House 757 was spawned.

It’s a neighborhood thing, and it’s free. Jorge’s sole request is that, if possible, people bring some non-perishable food items, all of which get donated to the local Foodbank. Here are some photos I took along with a few I cobbled together from other folkses’ social medias.

Oh good, a new control group

Come play with me! 

 

It was a gas!

Now, I’ve been trying to participate in this for years, but something always manages to get in the way. But not this year. This year I finally got to be part of the haunt, and as I anticipated, scaring the crap outta people is So. Much. Fun! Seriously, it’s an even bigger rush than gettin’ laughs from a crowd. I already can’t wait for next year!
