Heap's Haunted Corn MAZE in Minooka, Illinois - www.Heapshauntedcornmaze.com - 284 Views
Legend has it that....... 150 years ago the Heap Family purchased a Healthy plot of farm land. It has been told, that the previous owner was a peculiar eccentric old chap who grew several acres of corn to trade with local farmers. No one really knows why but eventually , he started to shred everything he found. He shredded belongings, his home, and everything in his estate. He flat out went insane. The town folks started calling him "The Shredder". One dark foggy night, "The Shredder" came up missing under a full moon. The following day a search party went looking for him but never found the old man. The one thing they did find was, shredded corn stalks from boundary line to boundary line. They also discovered blood soaked tracks leading into one of his fields that disappeared into the rows of corn. He was never seen again. Now on full moons, the old man can be seen walking in and out of the cornfield. The dark shadowy figure comes out to feed, and can at times be heard laughing insanely with the unknown forces that lie within the boundaries of his corn. Some people have witnessed odd looking lights looming within the corn. The family dog refuses to go near the corn. And in the fall when the family harvests their corn crop, they always get this ere feeling that someone is watching and lingering in the corn. At times the earth cracks open for no reason at all, or out in the Middle of the cornfield lies a shredded row of corn.

Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois - bachelorsgrove.com/ - 2 Views
This small abandoned, unkempt cemetery in the southern suburb of Chicago is one of the most haunted cemeteries in the United States. Many different types of happenings have been reported here since the land was set aside as a cemetery. The name came to be because of the large number of single men living around the area in the past. No one has been buried here since the 1960’s, and has been neglected and abused much. The site is popular for various groups that are involved in voodoo practices and Satanism, which I’m sure does not help in the peace of the souls still wandering around.

Basement of the Dead Haunted Attraction in Aurora Illinois is not the biggest attraction in Illinois, but many consider it to be the best and even scariest.  Like most top haunts, the Basement of the Dead is run by a talented and passionate group of people who love the haunted house industry, and this group is actually family… a family who through hard work and faith in themselves turned their dream (or nightmare) into a reality.

Jason, David, Sara, Craig, and mother Patrice Seneker along with their aunt and uncle, Tressa and Todd Baraniak, began their haunting life at a home in Joliet Illinois.  Every year, the whole family would start working in early August to transform Patrice’s home into a terrifying house of horrors.  In October, thousands of people braved their way through the yard and home.  After four years of creating nightmares in a home haunt, they wanted more.  David remembers, “That’s when I knew we could be very successful at running a commercial haunted house.  We were doing all that work for just the joy of scaring people.  I knew if we could get the funds and find a place, it could work.”  But before the family became professional haunters a different business opportunity presented itself. The Seneker family learned that the mask division of Scarecrow (a company known for their realistic vampire fangs) was for sale. The family obtained the mask molds and began creating foam latex mask out of the basement of their home. The business, Arrival Mask Company, was successful, but the idea of running a professional haunt never left.
    
Todd never did stop looking for a good location to create a professional haunt. “There are many great haunts in the Chicagoland area and we didn’t want to open a new haunt in some other haunt’s backyard.  It’s not easy to find a good location, and then when you find one, the building owner does not want to give you a lease for just a few months to set up and run a seasonal haunted house.”  That’s when Todd learned of an established haunt that was for sale in the area.
    
George Carpenter founded Basement of the Dead haunted house in 2000. Right away, Basement of the Dead won best new attraction of the year from a local Chicago haunted house review group.  From there, George and his family successfully ran the Basement of the Dead for several years, but due to an illness, George put the Basement up for sale. 
 

Todd said, “George was happy with the number of people he was putting through, and because of the illness there was not much change to the Basement in the last few years he owned it. It was a very strong foundation, and we felt with the right marketing strategies, renovation of the existing space, plus expansion into unused parts of the building that Basement of the Dead Haunted Attraction could become one of the top haunts in Illinois and in the Nation.”

The haunt is located in the basement of a 100 year old building in downtown Aurora Illinois just 30 short miles outside Chicago.  Immediately upon walking inside the building, it’s clear this place would be frightening even if there was not a haunted attraction inside.  The decrepit brick walls, old pipes and eerie creeks make for a perfect haunted setting…a very strong foundation indeed.  So the family bought the business in 2010.  Todd fondly recollects, “When we bought the haunt from George, he and his family helped make our transition into the haunt world seamless.”   

In 2013, the family’s hopes were becoming reality.  Attendance greatly increased, the haunt was named #1 Haunted Attraction in Illinois by the Chicago Tribune Newspaper, and it was also listed in the Top 30 Haunted Attractions in all of America by Hauntworld Magazine.  The Basement of the Dead turned to Facebook and other social media to get the word out about their haunt.  Todd explains, “We are very active on these sites. We post pictures and videos not just in October, but all year around. We feel it is good to keep the Basement of the Dead fresh in everyone’s mind and to show them the work we are put in to make us #1 and keep us there.  We also run contests on these sites and give prizes away to our fans”.  
    
The Basement also keeps their website www.4fear.com updated with new information throughout the year.  By this Halloween season, the haunt will be 100% remolded from when it was purchased. The new rooms going into the Basement of the Dead are highly detailed, but not overly lit, providing that perfectly creepy atmosphere needed to achieve the utmost in scares. You can see where the Basement gets its soul. Silent Hill, The Hills Have Eyes, Saw, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Insidious are definitely the horror movie inspirations, but not a carbon copy.  David tells, “We believe that if you want to really scare someone, you need to help them forget that they are safe and that these are just a bunch of actors in masks and make-up. We do this by creating rooms that are so believable our customers get engrossed in the atmosphere. Then, the customers can’t help but believe they are in real danger.  For example, we want them to think they really could be locked in our broken down walk-in freezer with a humanoid pig freak.”  
    
They also spend much of their time training actors providing them with a good acting base.  From there, the actors are creatively allowed to develop their individual characters.  “We give them an idea and let the actor build their own character. We help them do this by putting a lot of thought into the costumes and masks & make-up FX.  I am usually very surprised by the depth our actors take their character. This makes them much more believable and terrifying when a customer first encounters them. We are blessed with a very talented group of actors,” says David.
    
Subtlety in lighting is truly an expertise found inside this haunted house.  Lighting is perfect; it’s delicately placed in some parts and purposely absent in others.  We asked David to expound on their intent.  “Just because you spent a lot of time and money on a room, does not mean you need a ton of light. We believe there is nothing scarier than the dark.  All demons, monsters, and boogie men are born from the dark.  We purposely harness that primal fear from the second you take foot down into the Basement.”
 

 

In 2012, Shattered 3D was created. Shattered 3D is a black lit 3D clown themed haunted attraction. The art inside Shattered 3D Haunted House is beautiful and grotesquely sinister at the same time. From floor to ceiling you are engulfed with artwork that is eye popping. David reveals, “We had the space, and we wanted to do a new haunt. Specifically, we wanted to explore a different way to scare people. The Basement is dark and while we love the dark, we thought the logical thing to do was make a contrasting haunted house. We wanted the most eye-popping blacklight haunted house with the most creative artwork, but we also wanted every actor in Shattered 3D to wear a completely 3D costume and every prop fully painted in 3D. We made sure to build solid scares in every room so our actors could use the 3D to their advantage by blending in with the art.”  
    
They certainly accomplished just that, because last year not only was Basement recognized, but Shattered was too.  One haunt reviewer reported, ‘Shattered 3D is a great haunt on its own, the 3D makes it an incredible haunt.’   
    
The Basement also did a revamp of the line entertainment. By adding two talented stilt walkers, two Stalkaround costumes, a chainsaw, a boom-stick, and a live DJ every night on stage that moves from inside the building out into the crowd.  The DJ wears an unbuckled straight jacket along with a zippered, canvas mask while mixing classic rock and heavy metal along with modern beats.  Jason told us a story about how his signature move (binding the hands and mouth of customers with Duct Tape) was born. “On my first night as DJ, I was so worried about not messing up the music that I forgot my main job is to scare. I heard one customer say to her friend ‘he’s not scary.’  I knew I had to change her mind, so I looked around my stage for something I could use as a prop weapon to go and terrorize this girl.  The only thing I could find was a roll of Duct Tape I used to anchor down some loose cables. The sound the tape makes when forcefully peeled off the roll can be terrifying in the right situation, because it can bring a connotation of being bound and abducted. I leaped down from the stage and ripped the tape out extremely close to the girl’s ear. Once she got off the ground from collapsing in fear (and her friend stopped laughing at her), she came up to me and asked for a picture together. I brought her up on stage and put the tape over her mouth and wrist. The crowd went crazy and from there everyone wanted to be abducted by the DJ.”
    
Hard workers all around, this family does not rest.  They plot, plan and work for the opening of their haunt year round and this year is no different as they plan to allow customers to live out their zombie apocalypse fantasy.  Full costumed zombie actors will roam the grounds while customers blast their way (with I-Combat laser tag guns) through the Basement of the Dead and Shattered 3D for the right to live another day. Todd states. “We always want to be pushing the envelope, to give another way for people to face their fears. That’s why we started, we wanted to scare people, and what can be more frightening than having to fight flesh hungry zombies while trying to find a way out of a dark basement?”  
    
In a world crazed for the preparation of a zombie apocalypse, I couldn’t agree more, but whether zombies or mutants or clowns are your affliction, one thing is certain…When you come to the Basement of the Dead and Shattered 3D, you will get scared inside, outside, in the dark and in the light!
