Re: “Halloween haunted houses in Middle Tennessee — our guide to the grand, the gory and the godawful

As a haunt enthusiast, I have to agree with most of the ones on this list. Nashville Nightmare has nothing but the A game going, and may soon be on par with Netherworld. , Death Yard has done much with a small space to punch it up, looking for great things to come.
The other side of the spectrum...Monster Mountain was a favorite, but there were hardly any actors this year and a definite lack of enthusiam. Hoping they get their groove back, but don't even bother this year.
I won't even go back to Death Row. Its so sterile...most of the scenes are completely walled in, so there is no immersion in the story or setting. More like a museum than a haunt, and that is where the owner belongs. Give it up and sell to someone who cares. Skip it and road trip to Arx Mortis in Killen, AL instead...

Re: “Halloween haunted houses in Middle Tennessee — our guide to the grand, the gory and the godawful

Millers Thrillers has added several new things to both their Haunted Woods as well as the Zombie Paintball Hayride... The haunt has added several new cool props in the woods & an amazing 3D Clowntown! The Zombie Paintball is prob twice as long as last year with a lot more live zombies to shoot at & even zombies on a zipline, and a great grand finale... Its worth the visit!

Re: “Halloween haunted houses in Middle Tennessee — our guide to the grand, the gory and the godawful

Thank you guys for posting these reviews. The reviews can sting a little, but the truth of the matter is no matter what you may think of you own haunt, the perception of the public is what drives sales. Congrats to the teams at Nashville Nightmare, Death Yard and Devil's Dungeon for hitting the top 3 in the reviewed list.

You should visit Scream Creek. It is actually one of the more enjoyable haunts I have been to and the location makes it even creepier.

OOPS spoke too soon. They're still doing construction. Instead, tonight's HOPEFULLY FUNNY open mic is a house show: 101 Gatewood Ave. 6:30 signup, 7 show. Don't park like a jerk.

@April - Yeah, that's not good enough. They need to work on having a good haunt first before adding anything for a side attraction.

Death Row added a new attraction. It's a coffin that simulates your final ride, including motion, sound, and scents. You should definitely check it out.

Re: “Halloween haunted houses in Middle Tennessee — our guide to the grand, the gory and the godawful

Haunted Hell is fantastic!! I had so much fun!! They changed ALOT from last year and it is spectacular! I highly recommend it! Death Row... It's really just a shame. I've gone every year since I was young and it was in the actual prison. It was good then. Now, it seems to get worse every year. This year was awful. I left feeling like I wasted money and bored out of my mind. They didn't even attempt to change anything. The few things they did change actually made it worse, like taking out the maze and extreme lack of actors. The few actors they did have seemed bored themselves. It was truly awful. Even though I have gone every year for nearly 2 decades, it has now been removed from my seasonal haunt visits. I will never go again. I look forward to Devil's Dungeon and Monster Mountain because they have never disappointed me and I always have fun!

Re: “Halloween haunted houses in Middle Tennessee — our guide to the grand, the gory and the godawful

Just wondering if you will be updating your list as you visit the other local haunts. There are quite a few others that have been around for a while that are worth the mention such as Dead Land, Scream Creek, Millers Thrillers, Evilution, Bloody Acres, ect.

Also, and this isn't directed at anybody in particular, but thinly veiled character attacks from haunted houses will be ignored. I'll be happy to explain my process for review via email or on here (in smaller doses). I can be reached at blacmarketpress@gmail.com.

Haunted Hell is a fun haunt, but much of it is the same. Adding details are one thing, but the scare spots need diversity if you wish to stay fresh.
