Teresa - This is one scary place! They put on a fun show outside for those waiting, with good music, and wandering actors, like Orlock and the Scarecrow. Orlock is really fun to talk to! And we missed it this year, but look for the Devil himself to make an appearance every so often. They also do group photos which make for good souvenirs. Once you get inside, it is impossible not to be impressed. Horror fans will be in...well, hell! It certainly isn't heaven! These are professional-quality movie sets, re-created so you can visit all your favorite horror movies and characters! The actors' costumes and makeup are phenomenal. And the actors were fully immersed in their characters and very intimidating! It is probably the scariest non-contact haunt I've been to this year. These actors seriously violate your personal space. You get to experience 13 Ghosts, Evil Dead 2, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Sleepy Hollow, The Mummy, Hellraiser, and The Exorcist, to name a few. They are somewhat limited in space in their building and it is always over too soon, but the price is very good for what you get. The Speedpass is a great deal if they are busy when you are there. And this one isn't too far from some of the other Louisville haunts if you want to make a longer night of it. If you really want a scary haunt, and you are a horror movie fan, I can't recommend this one enough. And if it isn't scary enough, they have a full-contact experience called CHAOS that I'm dying to go to. Two nights only! Check it out and let us know what you think!
Paul - The Devil's Attic is one of the best haunts I've ever been through! You walk in and each scene is a scene from a horror/thriller movie of some kind. There were scenes from Frankenstein, Saw, The Exorcist, Hellraiser, and tons of others. Every set had amazing detail, they had some of the best-used animatronics I've seen, the actors did phenomenal jobs, and the costumes and makeup were perfect! The scare-factor was outstanding, and it kept up through the entire thing. It's only $20 to get in and it's one of the best haunt bargains around. Highly recommended!!
Todd - Most memorable for its recreation of horror's most famous film icons and scenes, The Devi's Attic has hit a trifecta of near-perfection this year. The scenes look incredible, the actors are highly energetic and in character and despite each scene's physical space being somewhat limited, the scare tactics used are executed brilliantly. Upon entering a scene you may think you see the actors involved and then out of "nowhere" comes the real scare. The art of diversion and distraction has been mastered.
Many of the scenes from previous years remain. Every year I rave about the Hellraiser scene and for damn good reason - it's amazing. What I love the most, besides how great it looks, is that it starts with Frank (the post puzzle box, mostly re-constructed Frank). Everyone can recognize Pinhead (film fans will surely recognize Chatterer and Butterball as well) but only the true die-hard fans will instantly recognize Frank - the man unsatisfied by all earthly pleasures.
With the continuing positive reception to the Ash Vs. Evil Dead TV show, fans will be happy to find that the Evil Dead 2 scene remains and he who plays Ash does a crazy good job.
Of course, let's not forget the big man himself either, "The Devil", who always looks excellent delivering his iconic monologue as you begin the tour. After all, it's his collection.
I was happy to find a few new scenes - most notably, Bloody Mary and The Mummy (which had some amazing costuming).
Whether your a horror fan, a haunted house fan or especially both, you'll appreciate on-going excellence The Devil's Attic offers in both scares and authenticity of horror legends it pays homage to.
This was easily the best we've seen The Devi's Attic and the perfect score is well deserved!
