Haunted Houses Can Be Good Or Bad

The whole concept of a haunted house is to scare people. Some of them really come through and will severely frighten you. While others are kind of cheesy and make you laugh more than scream. It is funny because the horror genre as a whole is basically like that. They can easily go in either direction, good or bad.

Location, Location, Location

There are many factors involved in determining what kind of haunt you will be experiencing. The type of thrill the hosts are trying to produce is a big thing. If they are serious about it and bring in the right staff, the scare level can go very high. If they are producing the haunted house for fun, then it might not be very scary.

Also, where the haunted house is located will extremely affect what kind of fright night will be delivered to those who dare to enter. Of course, a strip mall in a well-lit area is not going to have the same impact as an abandoned building on the edge of town.

If the home of the haunted house has a sketchy history or maybe is known for real paranormal activity, well, now you are taking it to the next level. People will walk in already scared.
