The Creatures and Characters of Metro Phoenix's Haunted Houses

1 of 73
As if you couldn't already tell by all the colorful billboards dotting freeways or intense advertisements airing nonstop on the radio, haunted houses are big during the Halloween. And we mean monstrously big. It makes total sense, considering everyone likes a good scare this time of year, which any of the more than a dozen different haunted houses in the Metro Phoenix area are willing to provide, whether it's a case of the heebie-jeebies or something that might require a change of underwear.

We paid a visit to all of the major haunts around the Valley, and not only lived to tell the tale, but also snapped plenty of photographs of all the ghouls, ghostly figures, creepy creatures, and chainsaw-wielding fiends that were lurking around every corner.
