What's scarier than a haunted house where reanimated skeleton warriors and demonic, flesh-hungry zombies with chainsaws guard a giant human-headed spider bent on world conquest? Yeah, we couldn't think of anything either. Nevertheless, Halloween thrill-seekers looking to have the holy bejesus scared out of (or perhaps into) them, may wish to visit Judgment House at Warren Community Church in Somerville. Based on the popular (not to mention controversial) Hellhouse model, Judgment House focuses on the concept of "choices made and prices paid." It presents a series of "real life" situations on the road to heaven and to hell. Kids who do right receive eternal life, while the baddies are sent to a dark, dark place. So, are you shivering yet?
Previous incarnations of WCC's supremely scary variation on the holiday spook house have brought visitors face to face with top-level demons as well as lowlife scum. Once they even recreated the horrors of a violent kidnapping. With super creepy fun like this, who needs zombies and chainsaws? It's the perfect outing for true believers looking for salvation and arch ironists alike. Not recommended for children 10 and under.
Judgment House, WarrEn Community Church, 11800 Hwy. 64, Somerville, Through October 31st, 6-9 p.m. Reservations recommended, 266-1437 or 857-0494 after 5 p.m., $3 suggested donation
