Among the dark and twisted trappings of its haunted house, the Terror Dome takes time to find fear in the ordinary. A typical doctor's visit ends in involuntary surgery, a trip to the butcher reveals the madness of cannibals, and an midday chase by a chainsaw maniac becomes a nuisance when Jeopardy! is on. Live actors scream contradictory instructions to interlopers, as insane inmates warn passersby to leave and ghostly pale mothers ask them to stay. A grimy, haunted cemetery gives way to a demonic funhouse populated by vicious clowns. Hollywood-quality props bring a intense edge to the deadly endeavor, especially the prop chainsaws that the house-runners bitterly remark are more expensive than real chainsaws.
