How to Get Tickets to the Playboy Mansion Halloween Party

September 16, 2014 at 3:13 PM | by | Comments (0)

Hugh Hefner is getting ready to welcome the world's sexiest ghosts and ghouls to the annual Playboy Halloween Party.

The Official Playboy Halloween Party at the Playboy Mansion, taking place on Oct. 25, is known for its haunted houses, spooky performers, musical guests, good eats and, of course, open bars.

As usual, the event is put on by Karma and though the most affordable (as in four-figure) tickets are sold out, there's still a few "VIP" packages in the low five-figures, if you're keen to see with the inside of the infamous mansion looks like. Spoiler alert: VICE found it depressing.

Halloween Theme Park Preview: Universal Hollywood's Werewolf Maze

August 15, 2014 at 8:31 AM | by | Comments (0)

We’re halfway through August, and before you know it the cooler temperatures and spooky stuff of fall will be here. That means that Halloween marketing is starting to arrive. The candy might not be at the store just yet, but the theme parks are getting ready to celebrate the season—like Universal Studios Hollywood and Halloween Horror Nights.

The park over in California is taking a few pages out of their own film library, as they’re calling on An American Werewolf in London for inspiration on their latest seasonal selection.

The maze opens up for the season on September 19, and it sounds like they’re taking plenty of cues from the original film. Organizers promise totally convincing props, authentic music, and special effects that will scare you silly—especially when it comes to all things werewolf.

Trace the Steps of 'American Horror Story' in New Orleans

November 6, 2013 at 9:37 AM | by | Comments (0)

By now, your Halloween costume should be packed away for another year. If you don't want to let go of the spooky holiday just yet, however, the hot television show American Horror Story - Coven is just gearing up for another adventure of the supernatural kind. This time all of the witchcraft action is set in one of America's eeriest cities, New Orleans.

While some of the buildings are re-purposed as sets of the show, a few actually have stories behind them. For example, Madame Lalaurie's House of Horrors is actually known as the Lalaurie Mansion, named after its original owner with a similarly sordid history. Thus, the tour company Roadtrippers has put together a self-guided tour for American Horror Story fans heading for Nola. The AHS tour is fully mapped out with details of each stop already pinned. If you're not that creative to workout your own roadtrip, you can browse the list of recommendations.

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's a Pumpkin Carved Like a Boeing 787 Dreamliner!

November 1, 2013 at 10:04 AM | by | Comments (0)

Halloween may be over and November begun, but cobweb decorations and pumpkins on porches won't come down until after this weekend.

As such, there's one pumpkin you've simply gotta see. United posted a photo on Instagram of a pumpkin carved and decorated by UA employee Jay H. in Houston.

The larger windows, raked wings, engine nacelles and undulating stripe livery all paint it (literally) as the United Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Now if only it had a flame inside, it'd be truly authentic. Just kidding!

The Spooky Story of What Lies Underneath a Runway at Savannah Airport

October 31, 2013 at 10:16 AM | by | Comments (0)

Want to hear something spooky? There are two graves underneath one of the runways at Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport in Georgia.

If you know enough about airports to realize your flight is departing on Runway 10 (or your pilot requests the "graveyard tour" route from the tower), then you'll want to keep a look out the lefthand side windows for two rectangles patches in the tarmac that simply don't belong. In truth, these spots are graves, which belong in that spot more so than the airport, being original tenants from back when the land was a family cemetery.

The markers of the final resting places of RIchard and Catherine Dotson say "At rest" and "Gone home to rest," respectively. Stories of shadowy figures strolling the runway on low visibility nights circulate among flight crews who frequently land at SAV, so perhaps all the jet engine noise has awoken the Dotsons from their rests?

How To Get Tickets To Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare

October 22, 2013 at 1:53 PM | by | Comments (0)

Leave it to Rob Zombie to combine three horror attractions and an epic music festival and create a "Great American Nightmare."

The horror attraction will feature three haunted houses, based on Zombie’s own movies, Lords Of Salem: Total Black Out, The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto 3D, and Haunt Of 1,000 Corpses.. Each will be "shocking and sometimes disturbing" and will offer "a three-dimensional experience with animatronics and effects, a maze that is the ultimate definition of claustrophobia and fear, sudden chills and startling thrills, and salaciou shumor that will make one scream with fright and laughter."

The remake of Carrie hits theaters today, and to celebrate horror attractions across the country have been using the movie's iconic prom scene to their advantage.

This week, the Savage House near San Diego gave anyone who donated a prom dress to a local charity free admission to their haunted house, and Blood Manor in NYC has been giving away Carrie swag as well as student discounts. Those are great, but Hangman's House in Fort Worth, TX has taken the theme to a whole new level.
