Horror in Athens
The stories I could tell about Halloween weekends in Athens, Ohio - if only I could remember the details and the telling didn't get me into legal jeopardy. From the Athens Post:
Clowns, batboys, skeletons and more fill the three haunted houses at the third-annual Federal Valley Fright Nights at the Federal Valley Resource Center in Stewart. After working on the set of "Edward Scissorhands" and "Predator 2," among other movies, John Coen not only created the haunted houses, but is one of the main characters as well. Coen plays Captain Thropp in the Carnival of Terror, the scariest of Fright Nights' three houses. He applied his movie-set skills with expandable foam in designing latex props in the haunted houses, he said.That's not a bad pedigree for someone designing a haunted house.
