| Overall Score:|
|Scare Factor: High | Atmosphere: Very Good|
Visibility/Location: The display is in the front yard of a private home in Lombard, IL. It was easy to find and well lit. Free event.
Wait Entertainment: People can just pull up and park out front. There is no waiting...you just walk up and take in the displays.
Length of Event: We were there about 15-20 minutes watching the movie in the window and talking to the zombies and Frankenstein, who gave us candy.
Actor Performance: After we were there looking at all the zombie statues, dead baby statues, etc., a REAL human creature came out to greet us...it was Frankenstein! Very realistic costume...also, another zombie came out,, too.
Patron Flow Inside Attraction: Other cars pulled up with kids, who really seemed to enjoy hanging out with the Frankenstein monster!
Appropriate Ages: All.
Props / Special FX: There was scary music, lights, a FOG machine (nice touch!), displays of heads that turned around in a circle, ghouls howling, a mechanical monster, heads displayed in the front window, and BEST OF ALL, an old SCARY MOVIE playing on a tv on display in the window..the tv was from the 1950!! VERY cool. You could stand there and watch since the sound was transported out front to visitors.
Costumes / Make-up: The Frankenstein monster was very realistic.
Summary: This is a FREE yard event suitable for all ages. If you live in the area, it's worth the trip. You could always bring a lawn chair and watch the movie in the window (weather permitting, of course!). There were moving displays, scary music, fog, headstones, a charcoal grill with body parts cooking, a mechanical monster, some REAL LIVE monsters, and lots of scary statues scattered around.
The players/house owners were VERY nice..they even give out candy!! All in all, it was a very cute, small display that would be enjoyable for almost anyone, especially kids!
