Needed, a few good monsters
In July 29 Issue

"We need some monsters," said Aron Houdini. "We'll need about 40 volunteers daily throughout October."

Houdini was discussing the plans for haunted houses, two of them, already under construction in Russell Springs as fund raisers for the Fall Festival this year.

He said they are planning two, the main feature in the old police station and a 'G-Rated' version in the Masonic Building next door.

Construction is substantially completed in the main house, with over 200 yards of labyrinth in pathways to scare stations scattered throughout the surprisingly large structure.

He said the month-long festival of fright will begin with a show at the Star Theater by the SyFy Channel's Ghost Hunters.

The Mystery Machine from the Scooby-Do movies will also be in town, Houdini said.

Though they have ruled out witches and demons in the haunted house, Houdini said there will be plenty of subject matter left to raise the hackles on even the most stalwart.

 And though there are over 300 man-hours invested in the construction so far, the actual installation of the scare-stations is still in the planning stages.

"We still need lots of volunteers," Houdini said. "I've got to be out of town a lot in the coming weeks and we need to get a lot done."

He is pushing for an all-out offensive on the visitors' nerves this year adding that they are entered in a national contest for the best haunted house.

"They come through and don't tell you until they are done who they are," Houdini said.

But it isn't just people they need to make a good showing, donations of things, and money are greatly appreciated.

"We need a crib, we need basically a lot of things that are in people's garages or attics," Houdini said. "We also need some more sponsors."

He said anyone who wants to help out in any way can email the main street group, which is behind the haunted house and the Fall Festival at Russellsprings@hotmail.com.

Those who want to talk to him personally about donating or helping out can call him at 502-599-1637.

The haunted house will be open every day in October, except most Sundays.

"We have to be open the last Sunday, it's Halloween," he explained.
