True Dead-ication

harpy.jpgI was bummed to just learn from L.A. Observed that the 32-year tradition of Gary Corb and his family and friends transforming their Studio City home into the Hallowed Haunting Grounds will be coming to an end with this Halloween.

From the website:

Every year the show gets a litle bigger and every year we get a little older. At some point the pain of building the show becomes greater than the pain of not doing it. We are reaching that point and we wish to see what else goes on in October. It saddens us, but an end for anything is inevitable.

I’ve strolled its Sacred Wood several times over the years and let me tell you, this is not just some bargain basement yard haunt. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say its elaborate effects and remarkable presentation rival Disney’s Haunted Mansion. But enough of the sales pitch. It’s well worth the trip รณ especially since after tomorrow night it will be no more.

Where: 4343 Babcock Avenue, Studio City
One block west of Whitsett Avenue, just south of Moorpark Street
When: Tonight and Halloween from 7 p.m. – midnight
