Your Complete Guide to Treasure Valley Haunted Houses; Five You Must Check Out This Fall
BOO! Did we scare you?
It may have been unfair of me to make fun of my fiance for two weeks after he was "that one guy" screaming like a little girl in the theater when we went to see IT at Majestic Cinemas. I didn't know that he'd never seen a horror movie in a theater until that day! He's not a huge fans of scary movies, but I could watch them all day.
We're total opposites when it comes to haunted houses. He loves them and I'm a wreck while I'm at one. Seriously, I went through the Field of Screams at the Farmstead a few years back and I was so nervous about the jump scares, that I actually thought the corn had hands and was grabbing me! He wants to "toughen me up" by taking me to a haunt this season. I'm sitting here shaking trying to figure our which one of these is in my near future!
