Oh So Terrified at #ScreemersNightOut

Last night the Halloween season officially started for me at Screemers Toronto.

I was lucky to be invited to #ScreemersNightOut by Jaime-Leigh and the Screemers team. And to say that at first I was tentative would be an understatement.

I should clarify, I wasn’t tentative in accepting the invitation. I was tentative to start heading into haunted houses when I got to the Scream Elizabeth Building at the CNE. I’d like to think that I’m manly and such, but getting jumped at in dark places isn’t super high on my list of things to do on a typical Friday night.

However, after some socializing with the other Toronto blogger types in attendance I headed into the House of Cards with some willing partners and things were officially under way. They say that the House of Cards is the least scary of all of the 6 options, but it was visually outstanding with 3D art on the wall in bright colours and eye popping awesomeness.

Note: Say when you’re in the House of Cards make sure to say hi to Harley Quinn for me. She’s my fav.

After surviving my first house without peeing in my pants I ended up taking on 3 more, which were all more frightening. There were hanging bodies, werewolves, vampires, clowns, butchers, zombies and more… and man do they love to scare the bejeezus out of people.

One of the best spots was the Slasher Museum. Paying tribute to some of the best and brightest in the horror movie genre, there actually is a museum-like section in the house. There are also screens playing clips from classic movies, but you won’t want to stop to watch them for too long… not paying attention to what’s around the next corner is a sure way to get your screams out.

Speaking of screams, they were aplenty.

By the end of the night I had survived 4 of the 6 attractions at Screemers with a plan to head back before the end of the month with Trish to try them again and venture into the remaining 2.

Is this something that I’d sign up for once a week, no. Once a month, probably not. Once every 6 months, maybe. Every October, it looks like it from now on.

Here’s to the folks who love to be scared, you’re an outrageous bunch and this is your time of year. Get in there, bring your friends, leave your common sense at the door and be ready to scream your little head off. It’s a blast.

Don’t miss it.

Stay awesome!
