With Autumn Air, I Breathe Again

Posted in News with tags , , , , on September 27, 2018 by bluefall8

Silver moonlight showered the night, a crispness bit the air and I was alive once more. Last Saturday a local, double feature was just what I needed to kick the season off in style. As fate would have it, an old favorite returned to form and a promising upstart offered a preview of things to come.

The Scream Machine was a wild ride through classic scenes, humorous scares and moments of fun interaction. Once free of the soul-sucking device, we tried our hand at an escape room but our efforts to break free were thwarted by a chubby, dead boy and his incessant chatter! It all added up to a new, thrilling chapter for Taylor’s resurrected haunt.

In nearby Romulus, Deranged had attracted a respectable crowd for just its second night of operation. The forest trail provided an idyllic setting on this beautiful first night of fall. Deranged was a little rough around the edges but a mixture of atmosphere, sheer weirdness and a decidedly odd family dynamic ensured a memorable experience.

Autumn Equinox

Life changes and so too we change with it. My own life and the writings here at Horrorlust are no exception and in a future post I’d like to delve into that more but for tonight I’d like to simply focus on the arrival of the 2018 haunt season.

My work schedule will keep me close to home most weekends this fall and so I’ll use the opportunity to visit some area haunted attractions, both old and new.

The Scream Machine returned to Taylor a few years back at a new location and I’m excited to see how a change of scenery and an infusion of new blood has transformed this hallmark of the downriver haunt scene.

In Romulus, Deranged has emerged as the new kid on the block. I have something of a personal rooting interest in this one as it’s being operated by a friend who earlier this year decided to take his home haunt to the big leagues.

It’s officially fall, citizens of Michigan — get out there and support the art of the scare.

Happy Haunting.
