While those prone to seizures or heart attacks are forbidden entry to The Darkness, attendance has been skyrocketing among those with male pattern baldness, because America's scariest haunted house is more hair raising than ever! The chills begin right away with classic monster movies projected on the mega-scream movie wall, and to make the visit as uncomfortable as possible, brain-eating zombies have been imported from Pittsburgh and Haiti to torment attendees waiting in line. Those who make it inside will pass through ancient ruins filled with demons and giant man-eating worms, and the few who survive to reach the second story will want to check out the books of the dead in the all-new haunted library. The Darkness (1525 South Eighth Street; www.scarefest.com) is open 7 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday and Sunday and 7 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday through Sunday, October 18. It's open nightly Thursday, October 22, through Sunday, November 1. Tickets are $23 to $25.
