Now in its third year, the Butcher Shop: House of Gore offers gruesome Halloween horrors for those on a budget. For a mere five bucks, folks are invited to stroll through the maze-style world where monsters, killers, and other masked freaks wait just around the corner. Past frights have included homicidal chickens, cannibalistic devils, revenge ghosts, and lots and lots of rotting corpses. This year's event promises to bring back the bloody shenanigans, with countless decapitated heads, threatening bunny rabbits, and plenty of fog. While the haunted house is open to all, the team of spooks running the gore shop suggests that "if you have a sensitive or impressionable child, it may be in their best interest to spare them from this potentially traumatic experience."
