Houston Horror: Phobia

By William Kelly, Ladonte Lotts, Breanna Jenkins and NuJuna Chadwick

The second that you step foot onto the muddy premises of the Phobia Haunted attraction, you instantly shiver in fear.

With each scream heard, the detail and quality of the attraction is unmistakable.

When deciding which of the five haunted houses that Phobia has to offer is the scariest, Mind Control definitely takes the cake.

At every turn there is a new surprise.

Ghosts and goblins are sure to terrify house-goers while crawling out of the ceiling, from behind doors, out of corners and even climbing from underneath the beds!

Once you are inside of the house, there is no turning back.

You will surely question your mental sanity as the lighting distorts your ability to comprehend what is real and what is not. The flashing lights and streams of color throughout the rooms can scare even the bravest person.

The second you believe that the torture has ended, something new lunges towards you and nearly sends you into cardiac arrest.

The life-like props and actors come together to create a spine tingling scare with props such as chainsaws, knives and even babies, the actors are sure to give you your money’s worth as they bang and holler on the walls, chanting demented things in your ear.

Some of the actors are even bold enough to chase after you outside of the house. The make-up adds the extra effect to the costumes and scenery. It is  almost as if they were really characters from a horror film.

If you are looking for a nice scare on Halloween night, Phobia is the perfect place to go.
