[READ AND ANSWER EACH QUESTION AND WATCH THE VIDEOS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS OR YOU WILL GET ZERO CREDIT]

I usually only do this at Halloween but I love this sponge, so….I Love Haunted Houses….which is strange because I hate scary movies.  I think it’s because it’s the closest I can come to “what would YOU do?” if you were ever in a situation like people get into in the scary movies.  However, it used to be that a guy with make-up was good enough for a haunted house – not anymore.  Haunted Houses are big business now and have had to go high-tech. 

A) What makes a good scary house?

B)  Are the high-tech haunted houses scarier than the regular haunted houses?

C)  Are there any regular haunted houses left?

D)  What is the determining factor for you to decide WHICH haunted house you go to in your city?

Explain your answers.

    A) I think what makes a good scary house is the people they use, setting, and how good they are at scaring you.

    B)i think the high tech ones are better than a regular ones because it attracts more people and they catch your attention if you looked it up on the computer or something.

    C) I think there is because some of the regular ones are good. but i don’t really know.

    D) what haunted house i go to depends on what people say about it because most of the time the one that is talked about the most is the best. And you really don’t hear about the ones that are not good.

    A)What makes a scary house is every thing has to be vary scary. I would have to be scared throe the whole scary house. I would have to be scared out of my mind. I would have to pee on myself. I would have bad dreams at night.
    B)I really don’t know. The regular hunted house might be scary. Cause it might be scary then the high-tech one.
    C)there might be one. Cause if people love regular hunted houses then there might be some still out there.
    D)It would have to be big and scary. I would have to be scared by looking at the front of the building.

    1. A good haunted house is made with fake blood, scary people hiding behind things, big rooms, and taking a trip alone threw one.

    2.I think that they are scarier because it seems so real with all the high tech lighting and the movement of the fake creatures and the real loud audio.

    3.yeah im sure there is like neighbor hood haunted houses and for example I went to a haunted house last year it wasn’t really as fun but i think its because it had no audio or special effects.

    4.I go to the one I hear crazy stuff about like Waverly hills for example I’ve heard don’t enter cause you wont find your way out, i just wanna know what could be that scary that you wouldn’t want to enter i think it would be real fun cause im a dare devil and up for any challenge!

    a) real people chasing and scaring you and clowns && a place that is really truly haunted.
    b) no because real people is way scarier than electronics popping out at you . you have more excitement than seeing fake scary sound affects.
    c) yes Waverly hills because that place is haunted foreal they are not lien and there’s a story behind it and real people jump out at you and you feel somebody yanking your hair the hairs on your arms stand up and overall most people get a big rush.
    d) because that’s everybody’s favorite in Louisville . &&& i love real haunted places oh and it is one. Ive seen body’s and appearances and also a lot of my friends have to. i go there every year because no matter what they do that place will be scary without the special actors and effects.

    ♥ A) I like the haunted houses that are real haunted houses, like the Waverly Hills Sanatorium. When I go into a haunted house, its usually not very scary for me because I know its fake. I just expect the unexpected and remember that the guy with the stupid mask doesn’t even have blades in the chainsaw. The Waverly Hills Sanatorium is so much scarier because its real. I have to admit, real hauntings freak me out!

    ♥ B) I think the the high-tech haunted houses are better than the lame ones at the state fair and places like that. They’re still not very scary, but they at least make you jump a little when you see an animated ghost come out of a picture frame.

    ♥ C) Yes, there are a few. Like the ones most schools and some churches have around Halloween. But not many.

    ♥ D) Like I said in part A, I will usually go to the ones that don’t feel fake. Maybe something like Terror Test in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. But I’d rather go to the Waverly Hills Sanatorium.

    A). a good scary house is when its scary and you got to have makeup, and blood and also good actors to play it off so it will be scary.

    B). i think not because like you have to get creative and think of stuff for your self and not whats on a computer so yea tech is easier to use in a haunted house.

    C). to be for real i don’t know a real one is Waverly Hills i dont if any ones are left.

    D). i would go to Wavelry hills on halloween is scary cause its really haunted and its got somr=e details

    A. my opinion on a good haunted house is special effects and good make up for the actors and i think that making a real place that people died in like Waverly hills is a very good place to have a haunted house because not only the people that works there know what happens but also you see new things everyday that was not planed to happen
    B. like i said in part a special effects help a lot with what you trying to do if you want to scare some one have a high tech haunted house
    C.i doubt it i think that there are some left but i bet they have or will be high tech soon
    D. in my opinion i think that i would choose a haunted house only if it had real people and a long trip real places like Waverly hills and i would also want there to be something going on that was not expected and all the actors would have to be professional and have make up

    A. What makes a good scary house is things that are out and are the most popular. Like for instance famous horror movie characters. Mainly something that no one will be expecting to see.
    B. I believe that it depends on the person who you are trying to scare. If the person is more scared of things popping out at them rather than 3-D things popping out at them then they probably prefer a regular haunted house than a hi-def haunted house.
    C. I don’t go to haunted houses or haunted hotels so this question is hard for me to answer. I’m just going to guess that considering the fact that technology is improving everywhere around us, there are probably very few regular haunted houses left.
    D. Something I would look for in a haunted house is improved technology and things that I wouldn’t be excited.

    A.) A good haunted house has real-life murder scenes in it. For instance, in the movie “The Strangers” they include a real situation and what had actually happened to a couple when they were viciously slaughtered an murdered. Also, a good haunted house has things everyone can be afraid of because no one isn’t un-afraid anything.

    B.) I think it depends on what is included in a “high-tech” haunted house. Because some high-tech haunted houses are a bit cheesy. But it really depends.

    C.) Of course there are. Not many that i can recall, but there are some. Technology for haunted houses has taken over alot of the haunted house business.

    D.) Personally, i am terrified of haunted houses. In fact, I’ve only been in just about two in my whole life. But when it comes to haunted houses, you can tell which ones are good and which ones suck. And that’s judging from the advertisement. That’s just what i think though.

    A) what makes a good haunted house is uh strobe lights…. different stories throughout the house um i don’t know just things that could make someone wanna run home. They have to be out there and make you scream bloody murder the whole way through.

    B)Well the high tech ones are cool but i mean the normal ones was more original and are more scary. they put the story into life. they actually gave the history of the movie or story it was trying to tell. Now the high tech ones give you the sound affects and the lights but wheres the story? i mean there are some original haunted houses but well yeah i just think that original story’s are more scary and blood drawing. Like Waverly Hills.

    C)I mean i been to Waverly Hills and its not completely high tech .. yeah they have the camera things to see the “ghosts” but Waverly Hills is original. it tells a story of the hosbitial and the people in it. You get scared just thinking of it.

    D)What helps me decide witch haunted house i am going to is if it has a story to it. whats in it. and it hast to be i mean hast to be in the woods.. but thats just me.

    A). I think for a Haunted House to be good, it needs to scare everyone. I mean even the police and military officer.

    B).I think so, only because they can do things that non-mechanical ones can’t. Like have a pressure activated bus, That is awesome!

    C).There are regular haunted houses left. Not everyone can afford the mechanical props.

    D).I can go to every haunted house. I go to the ones with good reviews on how it scares, so I don’t waste my time and money on something that doesn’t scare me.

    A. well a haunted house has to be loud, bloody, dark with strobe lights, screamy.
    B. well sometimes robots dont just give you the scare a regular person would. a stupid machine doesnt have emotion or that much movement in it so its not as scary, so no.
    C. there are plenty of regular haunted houses left people just need to look for them in the city or out of the city.
    D.it has to look scary in the trailor for me to go, say gore and screaming and loud and crowded.

    A.) what i think makes a good haunted house is the trill and how much you can scare someone.

    b.)in some way they are and the not. the real haunted house are real, they people are there to chase you, for one goal scare the crap outta you. but the high tech they only do what they are made to do, maybe pop-outs.

    c.)it depends were u are. like around Halloween time yea there are.

    d.) when my friends go and say it good, then ill check it out myself.

    A) A good haunted house is one that isnt really fake, Good actors and knowing that i am going to be scared.
    B) Personally i don’t like the High Tech haunted houses because its to fake and isn’t really scary so i say no they aren’t. I like it when i know its an up close encounter with actual actors.
    C) There are a lot of regular haunted houses left. You just have to know that they are haunted and that they are scary. Just like Waverly hills.
    D) The determining factors for me is that i know it will be fun and i know that there isn’t going to be a lot of high tech stuff that looks really fake, and knowing that i will be thrilled by paying for it and that it will be awesome. I love haunted houses and stuff like that so it has to be good when i go.
