Halloween is fast approaching and in West Jefferson, you may want to check out the thrills and chills at the Haunted Factory, a fun-filled Halloween event now celebrating its’ second year. Located in the old Catawissa Lumber building behind the West Jefferson Fire Department, the Haunted Factory features 40 dedicated actors.
“It’s been expanded this year to provide more ghoulish frights and delights,” says demon-ring-leader Steve Farrington boasts.
If this year’s line-up of goblins and axe murderers doesn’t send chills down your spine, you might want to check your pulse, as the haunted factory features countless heart-stopping moments and harrowing encounters with monsters from the underworld.
The Haunted Factory isn’t Farrington’s first stab at demon hoarding and stealing lost souls, who wander through the building’s dark corners. For seven years, he orchestrated Lansing’s infamous Haunted House in the town’s old WPA school building. Since relocating to West Jefferson, Farrington has masterminded a cellar of terror that Stephen King’s Pennywise the Clown would admonish.
“Most of the new haunted houses are set up to go off with motion detectors,” explains Farrington. “It just pops up at you. With live a live actor, it’s up close and personal with you. People love that and I feel that’s why people come back.”
If you like a good scare, don’t miss this ghoulish event!
When: Fridays and Saturdays throughout October
