2012 HORROR ON FRANKEL STREET PRESENTATION: Krazy Killer Klowns return to Frankel Street. The proprietor promises to update the back story and offer something different from 2009’s Dark Carnival – titled “Rejects of the Dark Carnival,” the 2012 version features the clowns that were too unstable to join the original Dark Carnival; now, three years later, they have opened their home to you.
2011 HORROR ON FRANKEL STREET PRESENTATION: The annual yard haunt in Lakewood returns with a new theme this Halloween: Guests will visit an abandoned fishing port. But is it really abandoned? Or will guests become part of the “catch of the day”? Captain Charlie cans up some mighty good “tuna”.
2010 HORROR ON FRANKEL STREET PRESENTATION: “Devil’s Tower – Maximum Security Prison.” Unwary visitors will embark upon a tour of America’s most dangerous correctional facility, whose inner workings have long been shielded from public scrutiny. What do they have to hide? Inhumane conditions, torture, or worse…? Find out – and discover who truly runs the facility.
2009 HORROR ON FRANKEL STREET INFORMATION: This year’s haunt was titled, “The Dark Carnival.” Here is is the back story for the theme:
“Rumor has it that carnival trucks and trains have been spotted all over Lakewood and surrounding cities. Witnesses say that the carnival equipment and carnies that they see are different than the shows that normally come into town. The carnival has been described as much “darker”. They all seem to be headed toward the grounds of Horror on Frankel St. We will keep you posted.”
2008 HORROR ON FRANKEL STREET NEWS: This amateur yard haunt celebrated its tenth year with a brand new themed maze, “Scarecrow Village,” which promises to take visitors back to the time of a dust-bowl, to a town shut off from the rest of the world – until now.
HORROR ON FRANKEL STREET HISTORY: Proprietor Steve Cometa started in 1998, hiding behind a bush and scaring kids after they got candy at the front door. Since then, Horror on Frankel Street has grown into a 2-3 minute walk-through maze.
HORROR ON FRANKEL STREET GENERAL INFORMATION: This amateur effort might be better terms a “garage haunt” – the maze takes you through not only the back yard but also the garage. By the standards of amateur haunts, it is fairly densely populated with monsters: there were eight monsters lurking on the night we attended (that’s more than you get on slow nights at some professional haunts.
TIP: Frankel Street is not too far from the 710 freeway, so this haunt might be a nice place to stop off on your way to Queen Mary Shipwreck.
