While many of us spend our Halloweens dressing up in silly costumes and consuming as much candy as humanly possible, there are people who want to be scared. Instead of hitting up their local pumpkin patch, apple orchard, or corn maze, they’re scouting out the most terrifying haunted houses, attractions, and hayrides in search of a good dose of fear.
