Murder Mansion offers Halloween scares

Friday, September 23, 2011

Murder Mansion, Brazil, opens Friday, Sept. 30. Every Friday and Saturday in October, plus Halloween night, the haunted house will be open from 8 p.m.-midnight.
Pumpkins are being sold all along area streets, and that means Halloween is right around the corner. For those looking to be frightened during the orange and black season, a local haunted house is opening soon.

Friday, Sept. 30, Murder Mansion will open its doors to scare community members.

"There's not really anything like this in Brazil for the Halloween season," event coordinator Joe Condry said.

Located at 211 N. Walnut St., Brazil, Murder Mansion will be open every Friday and Saturday in October, from 8 p.m.- midnight. The haunted house, which opened for the first time last year, will also be open on Monday, Oct. 31, for Halloween.

The cost is $7 per person, of which part of the proceeds go to the Clay County Humane Society.

"I've done haunted houses off and on for 15 years," Condry said. "I'm a Halloween nut."

Dusty Crosley, the concept and art director, helped design the rooms in the house to be new this year.

"Who doesn't like to have a good scare around Halloween season?" Condry asked. "To me, the bottom line is just fun -- good, clean, scary, Halloween fun."

Condry and Crosley are always looking for volunteers to help with the haunted house. Those interested may contact Condry at (812) 841-1969.

Great idea to help out the Humane Shelter. Hat's off to people who dedicate time, art and talent plus draw attention to Brazil. And whatever procedes this event donates to the Humane Shelter is one more cent then they had yesterday. Kudo's!
