Halloween Sightings: CVS Pharmacy 10/5/2013 and a trip to "The Sanctuary."

CVS' selection of Halloween goods was pretty small.  I really debated on whether or not I should even bother dedicating a post to the store...But man, I really had to spread the word about these.

These stone busts have to be some of the coolest pieces I've came across this year.  At $20 bucks each they're moderately priced for the size and weight.  I'm really tempted to go back and grab the vampire!



Just half of one small aisle dedicated to our beloved Holiday, aside from those awesome light up busts there's not much more to talk about.  

After we finished at the pharmacy we made our way to Oklahoma's biggest haunted house "The Sanctuary."


I have to say I was actually thoroughly impressed with the haunt.  There was a central theme throughout the building and the sets were excellent.  No exaggeration when I say they were some of the best put together rooms I've ever seen in a haunted house.  The hospital sets, the morgue, the cemetery, hell even the exit stairwell looked great.  I'd love to go back and just spend a bit of time looking over everything.

Another strength of the haunt was the music and sound effects.  I went to the much acclaimed "Cutting Edge" haunt in Texas a few years back and was completely turned off by the loud techno-crap that was pouring out of the speakers.  Music can really help set the ambience of a haunt, relying on hard rock or metal is a mistake.  This place really got it right.

There was one thing missing from The Sanctuary that seems to be abundant in a lot of modern haunts...Chainsaws.  Don't get me wrong, I don't mind chainsaws, but it seems like some haunts have become super reliant on them to deliver a few jumps.  It was a nice change of pace to not have them around every corner.  Good job guys!

So in closing, The Sanctuary gets my full support and is probably the best local haunt I've been to in years.

  2. Very cool. I have been thinking of taking my daughter to one locally, the Factory of Terror. Hope it is as good!

    1. There's a lot of sites out there that review and rank haunted houses, you should check and see what people are saying about it before you go, they can be so expensive now-a-days it's best to be sure it's worth the cash before you make the trip!
