Zero Hour for Haunt Trinity

This entry was originally posted on Thursday, September 24, 2009 and served as a prelude to our first outing of the season. If I were asked to pick the most disappointing night of haunting I’ve ever experienced, off the top of my head, I would have to pick this one.

The song lyrics that accompany this entry are from a song called “Brain Food” which can also be found on the Moans From the Mausoleum Halloween CD. 

Somebody woke the dead
now breakfast is inside your head
I’m going to eat your brains tonight

There’s just one earthly delight
for a zombie who needs a bite
So I’m going to eat your brains tonight

Brain food (It’s a zombie attack)
Brain food (It’s a midnight snack)
Brain food it keeps me coming back to life

Oh please don’t make me wait
Take off your hat and get a plate
Cause I’m going to eat your brains tonight

I haven’t had a decent meal
since the day my coffin was sealed
And I’m going to eat your brains tonight

Brain food (It’s a zombie attack)
Brain food (It’s a midnight snack)
Brain food it keeps me coming back to life

Well there’s just one thing I want
don’t need no fancy restaurant
I’m just going to eat your brains tonight

I’ve been craving a human feast
since I was pronounced deceased
So I’m going to eat your brains tonight

Brain food (It’s a zombie attack)
Brain food (It’s a midnight snack)
Brain food it keeps me coming back to life

I didn’t mean to give you a fright
but I’ve got an undying appetite
I’m just going to eat your brains tonight

So enough of these idle chatter
It’s time to chow down on your gray matter
I’m going to eat your brains tonight

Brain food (It’s a zombie attack)
Brain food (It’s a midnight snack)
Brain food it keeps me coming back to life

Brain food (It’s a zombie attack)
Brain food (It’s a midnight snack)
Brain food it keeps me coming back to life

And it begins, anew. Tomorrow night the Haunt Trinity begins the annual pilgrimage to all places spooky. In the spirit of the past two seasons we’ll kick off festivities with a visit to a brand new haunt, Jackson’s Underworld. Located in Jackson, Michigan JU as described in the Fear Finder has been “specially designed and built by the creators of the Homer Mill.” Followers of Hallowblog know well the high marks Homer Mill received last year; based on our experience there the bar has been set high for Jackson’s Underworld. I’m not entirely sure what this particular building used to be used for but several pictures found at the haunt’s website reveal old elevators and what looks to be a massive boiler room. My only concern is that in an effort to duplicate the success of the Homer Mill the operators will have fallen into the pitfall of an imitation. It is my hope that JU can utilize the structural elements that make Homer Mill so rare while infusing the experience with a spirit of its own.

Following our visit to Jackson’s Underworld we’ll make the forty minute drive to the aforementioned Homer Mill. We’ll be visiting the haunt nearly a year to the day since our original visit and I’m thrilled that we have the opportunity to return at all. It’s quite a drive to Homer and given our desire to hit an array of new haunts this year it seemed as if a trip to the Homer Mill was unlikely, but along came Jackson’s Underworld and suddenly we had ourselves an outing. The night will end with a visit to the Mill’s restaurant where I indulged in some delicious chili-cheese fries last year. Something new is in order for this year I do believe.

The Haunt Trinity will converge at Jason’s humble abode to begin the night. Making his debut with the Haunt Trinity will be long time friend Richard Sander; better known to some as the kid who once broke a bunch of beer bottles at Food Town. We plan to depart around 6 p.m. and upon arriving in Jackson we may even meet up with Luke “The Spook” Zapor. This will also be the first time that we have hit two haunts on opening night. May this be another adventurous season of fun and fright.

A haunting we shall go.
