HOUSE OF TORMENT RETURNS TO THRILL CHICAGOLAND FOR
THE 2017 HALLOWEEN HAUNTING SEASON
Haunted House Runs September 22 through November 4
(Morton Grove, IL) – The nationally celebrated haunted house brand, House of Torment, will return to the suburbs of Chicago this fall to thrill for a third season. Located at 8240 North Austin Avenue in Morton Grove, Illinois, House of Torment will have two shows in one location for one price. This year’s attractions will offer two new themes: The Swarm and Nightmare High: Fall Harvest, with even more actor assisted scares plus an enhanced state-of-the-art custom sound system bolstering the 10,000-squarefoot addition from last year.
In the first attraction, The Swarm, Morton Grove is under heavy lock down after a horrifying government experiment gave birth to a new breed of deadly insects and creatures. Murderous vermin crawl, crazed through the city, promising to leave no survivor unbitten. Toxic sludge, overgrown plant pods, and nightmarish critters present grisly obstacles for the brave souls attempting to escape with their lives from the gruesome torment.
At Nightmare High: Fall Harvest, the local high school in Morton Grove has been overtaken by an unimaginable terror so deadly and demented the blood of all who enter feeds the evil entities who roam the halls. Hannah, the hauntingly hungry zombie cheerleader, is hosting a festival dance to find fresh brains to keep her evil school spirit alive. One should attempt to escape this nightmarish journey before becoming a permanent undead member of Nightmare High.
House of Torment Chicago will employ over 150 people seasonally including 75 actors, 25 front end and event grounds staff, 50 stunt personnel, control room staff, runners, and icon characters who will greet and entertain guests. The attractions, costumes, makeup, and animatronics are produced by the professional team of artists and creative engineers behind House of Torment, including featured special effects artist Evan Hedges who placed as a runner-up on season nine in 2015 on the SyFy channel’s reality competition television show “Face Off” http://www.syfy.com/faceoff, and was also a returning competitor on “Face Off All-Stars” on season eleven in 2017. This year, Hedges created a custom “Toxic Zombie” for House of Torment Chicago.
CHARITABLE: House of Torment has partnered with Don’t Be A Monster, a 501(c)(3) bringing anti-bullying programs to local schools. http://dontbeamonster.org Don’t Be a Monster video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mcMMIg8A9s
