Why Our Haunted House Gets 5 Star Yelp Reviews

Haunted House Reviews Tells It Like It Is

It's no surprise to us, that we get five star reviews on Yelp. Our haunted house experience is unique, and very scary. The next best thing to meeting a real Poltergeist Ghost. As the Ghost of Milburn Manor, I will confess that I am the real thing, but that is a secret so don't tell anyone ok?
Here's two reviews as examples of what is being said on Yelp about our haunted house experience.

What Really Makes a Haunted House Haunted?

The Haunted House Experience

When it comes to haunted houses as entertainment during Halloween, there may be some differences

from haunted houses that have real spirits, ghosts, and paranormal happenings. However, if the experience can replicate scary experiences in such a way that there is shock, surprise, and true fear, then the entertainment takes on a different dimension. You become a part of the horror movie.

Well, not exactly a movie. We like to call it a theatrical experience in a "haunted theater". For example, there is a group going ahead of you through this haunted house experience. A door closes behind them and in front of you. Each group has scary experiences without the other group there. Then the door mysteriously opens and the same timing repeats itself, allowing for a more private and personal scary experience by your group without another group there at the same time. 

Sounds, lighting, zombies and ghouls are all a part of the haunted theater experience, which is unique compared to the "fast food, drive through" experience of larger haunted house operations. 

These are some reasons why Milburn Haunted Manor has had great reviews and is very popular during the season. This is what really makes a haunted house haunted. 

Also we are out in the country a bit, and we know of actual real haunting events that have happened around here. We cannot guarantee that they will not happen at Milburn Manor during the Halloween Days. 

"Milburn's Manor was amazing! I have been to the Fear PDX, Fright Town, the 13th Door, and the Four Horseman at the Scaregrounds, Milburn's Manor beats them all. You get a unique experience that is all your own, meaning, no bumping into other people. The timing is fantastic, you don't feel rushed and you don't feel like it's too long either, everything was great. The Dark was really good also but we got lost a couple of times and actors had to break character to show us the way to go. I'm not sure how often that happens but it took away from the experience a bit. This was the best haunted attraction I have ever been to, and I'm afraid that all the rest will be disappointing in comparison."

The Witch - Top Rated Summer DVD Movie

Milburn's "Summer Scary" Picks  

The Witch has a 91% reviews consensus on Rotten Tomatoes / Flixster. It's free on Amazon Prime, otherwise it may be only $5.99 to stream from Amazon. Get the popcorn ready. 

From the review consensus:
"As thought-provoking as it is visually compelling, The Witch delivers a deeply unsettling exercise in slow-building horror that suggests great things for debuting writer-director Robert Eggers."
Trailer below:

It's New England 1630 (decades before the Salem witch trials of 1692) and a farmer takes his family to live in the wilderness after being threatened with banishment from the community. Then strange and ominous things start to happen. It's a film with "terrifying age-old concepts of witchcraft,  black magic, and possession". The film had rave reviews and they can be seen here on this link to Rotten Tomatoes review site:  https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_witch_2016
