Just outside of Hallstead, PA stands a house that is synonymous with all that is unholy and dreadful.
Hellstead Manor is a new story-based haunt created by Eric Lusk and Craig Owens.
It follows the story of a doctor from abroad who gets stuck in Hallstead and much evil ensues.
The attraction features a number of character guides who explain the story, along with plenty of actor scares, animatronics, lights, sounds and smoke machines.
Lusk owns the 1851 James T DuBois home that also once served as a sort of nursing home.
He interweaves some of the home’s actual history into the storyline.
“There have been many deaths that have occurred here when it was a convalescent home. Also, when it was the DuBois home itself,” said Lusk.
Lusk, who is originally from this area, has had a successful career as a comic book and TV animation artist, but now focuses on makeup and prosthetics for television and movies.
Hellstead Manor is open from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays.
It will also be open on Halloween night.
Admission is $20.
