Looks more like a normal hipster party.

Okay, so, FTA:

"A naked male dancer stands on his toes." - yeah, okay, you got me there... I'd leave screaming like a little girl around this part...

Also, this just seems like a bad idea...
"An actress stands naked in a bloody bathroom where she shrieks at participants."
Honestly, I hope they are being safe with this one. Because if they are expecting a naked woman to be shrieking all night long at this thing, what happens when someone decides they want to rape her and the rest of the people think it's part of the show?

-I'd be less worried if I didn't remember a story from last year where a kid in one of these shows was supposed to be pretending to be hanged, and actually managed to hang herself by accident. The body sat there hanging for hours with people just walking by commenting on how realistic it looked.

Our neighborhood is doing a haunted house collective this year. The idea is for kids to stop at each participating house as they trick or treat around the big loop. The neighbors I've talked to have planned some pretty tame stuff. The one guy Doug is doing the peeled grapes in bowl thing. The guy on the other side of me with the Great Dane has a crystal ball that he's going to do quick seances with. And another lady who just moved has connected up a bunch of cardboard boxes into a spooky tunnel. I guess it's okay for the little kids, but the neighborhood is getting older these days.

My grandfather was a psychiatrist at a mental hospital in the late 60s so I have a bunch of his cool stuff. I'm going to convert the garage into a padded psychiatric cell. And I'm going to dress up my wife's massage table into a bed with restraints and all that spooky stuff. Then I've got my grandpa's old electroconvulsive therapy machine hooked up so I can induce seizures in the kids. When I amp it up, the lights flicker so the ambiance even outside the house is going to be spectacular. We just can't use the dryer while it's running.
