About Us

Welcome! I'm that guy. That one guy on the block that always goes over the top for Halloween. I grew up loving Halloween and hope your kids will too. Our haunt is always FREE because  that's the way Halloween should be! We're a small home haunt in Torrance, CA since 1997. We build a maze in our driveway every year that differs greatly depending on our theme. The last few years have been about 1500 sq ft and a 3-4 minute walk through. Screaming and trepidation seems to slow people down, so it might take a little longer. We employ various and sundry fx each year and hand build props to ensure you're surprised around every corner. We're low on gore, high on startle and tricks of the eye. If you don't like dark, loud, or ominous situations, you probably wouldn't want to come through, so I recommend kids be at least 6 years old, but it's up to the parents to decide. Just remember, I can't afford your Psychiatrist bills. Since we're only a home haunt, we cannot accommodate any special parties or other evenings. It's Halloween night only! Come check it out if you're in the neighborhood, and tell a friend! And most importantly... why do we do this? BECAUSE IT'S FUN! -- info{NOSPAM}@thehauntedshack.com (remove the "NOSPAM" prior to sending)

We Scare because We Care!

Dear The Haunted Shack, 

Thank you so much for your generous contribution of $498.18 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.  Your support is hard at work bringing us closer to our promise of saving lives and ending breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.

With more than $1.9 billion invested to date, Komen for the Cure has become the world’s single largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to confronting breast cancer at every stage. In fact, since we started in 1982, practically every advance in the fight against breast cancer has been touched in some way by a Komen grant.

With friends like you, along with the many survivors, activists and supporters in 120 U.S. locations and a growing number of international cities and countries, we are literally making an impact and helping save millions around the world.

Again, thank you for your commitment to our steadfast promise to end breast cancer forever.
