SPOOKY FRANKLIN 2018 is in the books. This was not a great year but I made past heart surgery, which really zaps your energy so I had no choice but to downsize the haunt by about half this year. Nobody even noticed and I ended up having way more kids and neighbors than any other year so far. The weather was trying to ruin things and for the first 45 minutes or so after sunset it drizzled a bit, then went into perfect Halloween night weather. It was a good time hanging out in the middle of the driveway watching oldie horrors with befuddled neighbors who had a few too many by then. Next year I hope to be back to normal energy levels.

On a sidenote, my Google domain expired while I wasn't paying attention. So now Google wants $100 to reinstate the domain. Fuck them. That's highway robbery. So keep in mind if you ever want to visit the blog head on out to

Enjoy the pics and head on over to Flickr for all the pics!

We almost got arrested making it down at the old City Cemetery, but fortunately we talked our way out of it! Enjoy...

Another season in the books. Possibly the most perfect Halloween weather since starting this haunted yard. Best kid turnout by far. Showed Mad Monster Party and House of Frankenstein to the neighbors. Loads of horror trailers. Friends came and went, including Binx the tabby (in the pics).
I'm baffled as to how much work is involved in the set up of this haunt, and it seems like there is literally not an extra minute to spare the entire month leading up to this night.

October sadly is in the books. I hate that. Here comes winter..

The entire album is of course at my Flickr spot: SPOOKY FRANKLIN 2017 but here are a select few pics that represent how things looked this Halloween. Enjoy!

So year 14 is in the books. This year was the most successful ever. So it takes 14 years haha!
What a party it was! If Dr. Gangrene and I have done nothing else, we have given Nashville a decade and a half of legitimate horror fun. Next year we move to The Exit In!

RayWen grabbed some great photos as always. Check out his PHOTO ALBUM HERE.
