Sept. 27- Nov 2
Variety Arts Theater, located at 940 S. Figueroa St

Here's the press release with much more info on what's happening. This event is clocking in between a hour thirty and two and a half hours, sounds crazy. If you've enjoyed the film, The Purge, you have to go to this warped interactive play.

In this new type of horror-theater, guests become “delegates” to the annual convention of the New Founding Fathers, the dystopian governing party of a near-future America, in which all crime is legal once a year for 12 hours.

Once delegates are inside, the immersive horror-theater experience begins in the grand theater of the New Founding Fathers Headquarters.  There, they will participate in the annual Founder’s Convention – which is held each year on Purge Night.

But the visiting delegates will quickly discover that not all Americans believe in the Purge, and that the intense opposition can have frightening, even deadly, consequences.

As they explore, delegates may find themselves complicit in the shocking acts undertaken by a warped government … directly threatened by hostile dissenters … or intrigued by the mysterious lives of elected officials.  With every step, they will be drawn deeper into the New Founding Fathers Headquarters.

Politicians, patriots, dissidents and traitors will directly engage delegates, who will be encouraged to interact with their surroundings and take their own time discovering the long-hidden, carefully guarded secrets of Purge Night and the New Founding Fathers of America

Admission to THE PURGE: FEAR THE NIGHT starts at $65, and is open to anyone 18 years of age or older. Tickets will be distributed on a timed-entry basis, and are available beginning today at, where guests can also learn more about the event. 

Blackout: Haunted House
Oct 4-Nov 10
Variety Arts Theater
940 S. Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, CA 90007
Be scared in the dark by yourself. You'll be taken into the dark and be tortured, not really. It's like role-playing a victim situation. This is taking place at the same location as The Purge: Fear The Night, no deals for both right now.

Los Angeles Haunted Hayride 2013 
October 4- 31 every Thursday-Sunday in addition to Wednesday, the 30th
 $5 Off Discount coupons are available with your purchase of any Sunkist or Squirt soda product at all Southern California Ralph’s Supermarkets.

Ranking as one, if not my top choice as best Halloween event last year. This year we have the haunted hayride based on actual events, I'll miss the the demon cult. The “In-Between” Dark Maze returns too, get the package deal an experience both. 

The maze really is in the dark, I almost went deaf in one ear going with reporter Natalie D. last time in the field.

 Purgatory, the waiting area brings back the freak shows, the scary-go-round, house of mirrors, movies, music and magic. Didn't see magic last year, just the making of human hands, fake humans to scare your friends and family with. New this year "Carving Shack”, where you can deck out a pumpkin and “Death Row”, an interactive room where you can look at devices of murder and killing used throughout history.

*all activities in “Purgatory” are included in your ticket excluding food, gaming, & merchandise.

Sinister Pointes Haunted Attractions
Oct 4- Nov 2 Multiple Dates
Sinister Pointe
195 Arovista Cir
Brea, CA 92821

Many years of experience at this well known haunted house attraction

Haunted Hollywood Sports
Oct 4 -Oct 31 Multiple dates
 Hollywood Sports Park
9030 Somerset Blvd Bellflower,
California 90706

3 mazes and 3 kill houses. Kill houses are the term for haunts with paintball. Now you can defend yourself against zombies. This year it's not just zombie, but many things that go bump in the night and a campaign where you have to fight ghost soldiers.

This one got some tough reviews last year and I haven't experienced for myself. Hopefully, the owners learned from what worked and what didn't. Still the prospect of shooting zombies in a maze always works.

Old Town Haunt
October 5-Nov 2  Weekend dates, check calendar to be sure
20 N. Raymond Ave (at Colorado), Pasadena, CA 91105

Their site says "Last Year. Last Chance." Say it isn't so. They're one of the best haunts in the LA area. You're put into a a bank's basement and must trek through old set pieces from TV shows. They can get you at so many turns. I'm sad if it is their last year.

Los Angeles Live Steamers Ghost Train
Oct 12-31 Multiple dates

Get on the ghost train, but will you get off? A fun spooky ride on a miniature train at night.

ALONE [an existential haunting]
Oct 24 - Nov 2

Downtown LA (unknown location) must buy tickets to find out
Supposedly a former temple site

Walk alone for thirty minutes, it's scary if you have nothing to listen to.

"ALONE is a thirty minute psychologically spine-tingling experience that you walk through in solitude with nothing but a flashlight to light your way. You will not face rubber-masked characters, clowns, fake blood, chainsaws, nor any campy or cliché haunted house accoutrement, nor any saccharine narrative. It will be just you, alone, immersed in a world where the fourth wall has been dissolved. Your personal space will be violated; you will be touched; you will be pushed and pulled around the space."
