Well, my brother and I went to the Raven's Grin Inn, when we pulled up Jim was out front of this very large house. It looks large from the outside but inside it is huge and I mean huge, I can see why he has "Hide and Seek' partys. Two others pulled up into the parking lot and it looked like there would be four on this tour and what a tour it took about four hours and was full of the macabre, the odd and old school haunting at its best. Jim is the hart of this haunt and the soul is 37 ghost that live there, 38 if you count the one in the side yard. Jim surrounds himself with his art and it sets the stage for his masterful story telling. there was once a website called Haunt Freaks and one of the owners Haunt Betty talked about the jaded haunter, about how haunt lovers and haunters become so use to things that go bump in the night that it is hard to scare them anymore. I was one of those, I had been going to Halloween Horror Nights for years and Howl-O-Scream on and off for just as long. Haunted trails, JaCees haunts, you name it. and I had become jaded but you know what. Jim got me again and again with old school haunt tricks and he did something that has not been to me in a long long time, he scared me. I don't mean I jumped (Idid a lot of that) I mean he scared me. For those that have had a "Bad Dream" in bed then you know what I am talking about for those of that don't then you need to take a trip to the Raven's Grin Inn. Thanks Jim you are truly a artist, a story teller, a haunter!
