The Annual ACE Haunted House was a terrifying phenomenon Monday evening at the school's location in Agassiz.

Haunted House brings horror to the community of Agassiz

The ghosts with the most greeted guests at The Annual ACE Haunted House in Agassiz on Halloween.

Fears were faced at the Annual ACE Haunted House on Halloween night Monday, as spooky specters, grim reapers, living dead dolls, butchers, and corpses greeted guests.

 

“It was a lot of fun this year — we got to decide what we wanted to do and where we wanted to be. Last year I got to tear it down, and it was really cool to see the cob webs and the little fake spiders. It gives us an opportunity to mingle with our community, so it’s fun,” said student Alicia Kerfoot.

Walking into ACE on All Hallows’ Eve was surprising — instead of a few ghostly costumes and candy corn, The Observer was greeted by a ghoulish figure, and escorted into a shady looking house by a phantom-like maid, somewhat reminiscent of a character from the Halloween classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Struggling to get one’s bearing as a myriad of eerie sights and sounds assaulted the senses and vertigo set in whilst descending a flight of stairs, the flashing of lights was enough to create spine tingling shivers for those brave enough to enter ACE’s weird world of the macabre.

Multiple frights were to be had with clever hiding spots for phantom terrorisers.

The advertisement said Haunted House, but the students and teachers converted the entire school into their bone chilling and experimental torture experience.

“We have some kids doing some acting, and each year we expand — we’ve bought some animatronics, and we basically let them design the entire thing — it’s kid driven,” said organizer and teacher Sandy Balascak.

Proceeds from donations received by guests will go toward future Haunted Houses.

“It’s my first time doing the Haunted House and it’s awesome. I really like scary stuff, and I tore down the one from last year and it was really, really creepy,” said student Ivy Blake.
