Four and a half stars

With a combination of fright and excellent acting, the Asylum House should be on everyone’s list of haunted houses to see this year. The creative plot and characters make this haunted house not only scary, but also entertaining. It touches base with almost every type of horror genre, from traditional scary movie villains to mad clowns and doctors. Ask co-owner Trick and he’ll tell you what you can get for the $19 fee to get in: The Asylum House offers an experience of terror and excitement. This isn’t one of those places where you wait longer in line than it takes to go through the haunted house. Each room has something different and a new act to be seen. It was refreshing to see how the actors were engrossed in their characters. The Asylum House included the main haunted house, a walk through the woods, a cemetery and more. I was jumping from start to finish. Gate opens at 7 p.m. on weekend and weekdays, but note that some content may not be suitable for children under 13. Through Nov. 1; www.theasylumhouse.com.
