Hutto Scream House lives up to its name

By TOMIE V. PARKS

Driving to the haunted house was eerie enough.
It stands on County Road 134 in the middle of a a secluded field almost half an hour away from the safety of downtown and its surrounding suburbs.
So I already felt like I was in a horror movie, waiting for my cell phone and car to die at the same time.
What came after I found Grandpa Bo's Bargains, the store that transformed into Hutto Scream House — well I suppose that depends on the kind of person you are.
For the adrenaline junkies, it's a pure high. For the the homebody like me who watches too much TV, you are zombie bait and spend the entire time wanting it to be over.
So Hutto Scream House is no joke. You get what you're looking for when it comes to Halloween entertainment.
It starts with a maze that takes you through a land of nightmares, and the path leads you outside to an open field where you find yourself stuck in a crowd people who want to eat you.
Very creepy, very unsettling and not a good way to unwind for the night.
But I survived and am here to tell you all about it.
