It's that time of year: falling leaves, cool temperatures, and the glow of an autumn moon. Halloween is right around the corner and with that comes the thrills and shrills many of us desire.
While most haunted houses have ghost and gobblins, "The Nightmare" in Marshfield uses real life scenerios that people deal with everyday.
According to organizers, it is scary, but not "boo" scary.
They've been doing it for the last ten years and the congregation at Believers Church in Marshfield says "The Nightmare" has only gotten bigger and better. It's one of the state's largest reality and thriller shows using 21,000 square feet. It takes about 300 volunteers to bring this one-of-a-kind event to life every night.
"The Nightmare" depicts real-life scenerios including drug use, gang violence, suicide, and drunk driving.
Organizers say this unique spin on a haunted house leaves people with a different feeling after their experience. They continued to say that people lives can change after they have gone through. Organizers also said that they have even had a judge mandate that several criminals go through to get a wake up call.
"The Nightmare" runs every Friday and Saturday through October with a special showing on Thursday, October 25th. It takes about 20 minutes to get through the entire performance. The doors open at 7 pm and tickets are $8 with group rates availble. Since some of hte scenes are mature, no one under the age of 13-years-old is allowed.
