The century-old pig barn on the historical Anna Dean Farm has seen a lot of life, and a lot of death. It might be that slightly sinister influence that inspired the barn's current creepy dwellers to take up residence there, creating a nightmarish scene. Strewn with bloody specters, creepy clowns, and dismembered body parts, the barn provides such an intense scare that any guest who can make it through in one try is granted another free entry to see the ghoulish sights again.

Carnage in the Corn at Maize Valley Market and Winery is a six-acre corn maze full of twists, turns, and frightful sensory escapades. A vast growth of corn sorghum, field corn, and forest paths create a seasonal labyrinth that will have your blood developing goose-bumps as you turn each corner in unknowing darkness. Carnage in the Corn employs no actors or gross-out techniques lifted from such horror films as Man, Blood, There's Blood, Man; the unknown nature of the maze and the darkness are all that it takes to strike terror in participants of this sprawling center of the spooky. The maze is designed for kids of all ages, within reason, as actual babies are likely to go feral if exposed to fresh air and cornstalks for more than a few minutes at a time.

For more than 75 years, the Lacomini family has graced the local culinary landscape with a rich menu of traditional Italian recipes and an extensive selection of ambrosial wines and martinis. Defy conventional pasta physics with an appetizing antipasto such as crab-stuffed mushrooms ($6.95) or zucchini fretto sprinkled with parmesan cheese ($6.95) before pondering the complex tuscan béchamel strata of a baked rustic lasagna ($14.95). Delectable dishes such as the cashew-crusted trout ($22.95) or sautéed veal scaloppini ($21.95) complement a tabletop like a kiss seals a memo or a rose kisses Seal.

For several years, the Tadmor Shriners have been planning age-appropriate spooks to help families tap into the Halloween spirit. On site events such storytelling prepare visitors young and old for pulse-quickening surprises in the haunted house or on the hayride, where the fun is designed to elicit gasps rather than nightmares. Afterward, kids and parents can calm stomach flip-flops by filling up on seasonal treats or stocking up on all of the other Halloween must-haves that are available for sale. On Saturdays, GASP (Guardians Against Sex Predators) also provides free fingerprinting and ID services for children.
