Happy Halloween from JMB and Moggs



Witchy JMB on the right with her familiar in Neko form, Moggs Tigerpaw, wander this creepy pumpkin patch before introducing you to this year's version of the Dunbar Haunted House. This is the third year I have written about it and the sixth year I believe for its existence.

Please click on any photo to enlarge, if you dare.

While entrance is free donations are collected for several charities and last year $29,000 were raised for these excellent causes and this year the crowds are up to 1000 per evening. Without further ado let's get down to the photos. I think this is the scariest one I have attended so far and I am very glad I go during the daytime as costumed actors are around after 6.30pm to scare the living daylights out of the visitors.


One of three larger than life figures which grace the normally charming front garden

Much of this year's display is in the dark, but a photo with flash
gives some idea of detail

EEEkkk

Welcome to Klown Alley says the Headless Chicken

Colourful if gruesome

Moving right along into the Torture Section
or Man's inhumanity towards Man

Ghoulish Gardeners in the Cornfield


Delicious and Mine, mine, mine


If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise

The Graveyard coming to life, sort of.

Typical homeschooling family


Red, my favourite colour!

A glimpse into the Future?


A true creature of the night

Please don't feed the Zombies, they have
a very special diet



Please read these instructions and
follow them carefully

It might be Halloween but Christmas is just
around the corner


Santa's Little Helper, so happy in his work

Rudolph looks a little peeved this year

And so ends my annual visit to the Dunbar Haunted House. This year the owners have outdone themselves and the number of visitors shows how popular this event has become. They even have their own Facebook Page.

Below is a slide show from YouTube put together by one of the people who work at the house as a "spook" and taken at night for a different view if you are so inclined.

How do they get all the monsters and whatnot to not fight each other? I mean zombies eat vampires and weird demon dogs eat zombies for a start....

Zombies eat vampires? Are you kidding? Vamps are way too fast and strong, also probably wouldn't taste right to a zombie.

Terrific. I went to two Halloween parties. Dusted down my red devil horns and my husband had a knife through his head and blood soaked bandage.

Those are just amazing grotesqueries. Not a place to take the tiniest kiddies.
