Community Spotlight: Haunted Houses and Horror Movies

Dear Members,

Welcome to our community spotlight feature*.  Since today is Halloween, we decided to pick one last spooky topic. This week we chose singlemoon9456’s topic asking if you can handle haunted houses, hayrides and scary movies.

 comm spot

Here are some of the answers from our members:

Megzwilletts: Depends if the movies have children in them being haunted. Most other scarey things dont get to me.

Eggnog76: yup. I know how most of the special effects are done so it no longer scares me.

Meelo81: not alone but fine with a group
