Expect a mix of Hollywood and down-home frights at this (allegedly) haunted rural farmhouse orchestrated by local horror filmmaker Josh Hasty. 

There's the historic haunted house — aka Devil House — said to be the site of a series of grisly murders (mama and Cletus allegedly murdered their three children and three of their friends in the late 1800s, after chasing them into a corn field) — you can tour that if you're feeling brave. 

And then there's the theatrical haunt, Hellbilly Workshop, on the other side of the lot at which the aforementioned murder scenes are recreated by Hasty's team of actors and a terrifically terrifying corn maze where you have to run for your life. A bonfire and classic horror movie spot in the middle is a great place for your too-scared friends to hang out. 

$12 Devil House; $12 Camp Cletus Corn Maze; $15 Hellbilly Workshop; $34 ultimate experience; $40 Straight-to-Hell fast pass. 7:30 p.m.-midnight Fridays and Saturdays; 7:30-10 p.m. Sundays; 7:30-11 p.m. Oct. 31. 5511 Township Line Road, Waynesville, scaredown.com.
