Labor Day digs a traditional grave to lay sunshine and beach frolics to rest as our Summer of Screams comes to an end. August offerings provided an appetizer, if you will, for the real meat of the year. September 23rd is the Fall equinox and the fact that the calendar reads “September” at all heralds Autumn in the midst of these hellish temps. So here we go… a list of goodies to launch us into full fledged haunt season. I’ll be updating this, as always. For now… enjoy.

Beyond Fest – September 25th-October 8th. This. Lineup. Is. Stackkkkkked. They jokingly told me to camp out under the screen with a promise of leaving the popcorn machine on overnight so I’m fed. Don’t threaten me with a good time! I don’t know how I’m going to choose which screenings to attend, I don’t know if it’s inhumanly possible to attend them all, so my heart will undoubtedly break multiple times over the course of those two weeks. Go take a look at the schedule to see what I mean…

Sinister Pointe’s The Mist – Most haunts are referred to as “mazes”.
