Who are we?
Once upon a time, no one can seem to remember just how long ago, a man, who loved Halloween, started out. It was just the usual things at first, handing out candy and decorating. But then he decided he'd do a little more. He 'built' his own Mad Scientist lab out at the front of his house and served a mixture of beverages.
And it lasted like that. For awhile.
This man was spending time with a friend when they hatched the idea. They were going to put on a haunted house. If only they knew how much work it'd be, but even if they had, it'd be worth it, in their eyes.
The project spread. New friends were made, new friends got involved. More and more people showed up each year. It expanded to a whole operation of punch, candy, games, and a haunted house. And it all started with the Mad Scientist's lab.
So to answer the question, to say who we are.. We're family. We're a community. Just a group of volunteers that put on a haunted house every Halloween. We're the Canterbury Creepers.
Meet The Team
The Mad Scientist
The Mad Scientist, himself, Randy Dunn. A man passionate about Halloween that really enjoys how many others' day he can brighten.
Caught off guard and taken from a video from a Halloween past. (They say it's impossible to capture a true image of him anymore, count yourself lucky, or unlucky, that you got to see. Only time will tell. After all he has to get the blood he serves from somewhere.)
On All Hallow's Eve, the beast within comes forth from our very own Mr.Jeff Byrd. He seeks the screams of those that dare travel through the Canterbury Creepers' Haunted House, feeding on their fear.
Jeff keeps track of the souls that are scared most of him. Perhaps, if you're lucky, you won't be added to the list.
"Almost every species in the Universe has an irrational fear of the dark. But they’re wrong. 'Cause it’s not irrational."
Kris Reeves uses the shadows to his advantage, sneaking up on unsuspecting visitors of the Canterbury Creepers' Haunted House. His quiet demeaner is but an illusion, in this case. People run from the room terrified, never truly seeing Kris until it was too late. The screams of his victims would echo up the hill, where other guests are eagerly waiting for their turn.
So, yes, your fear of the dark is quite rational. Kris makes sure of it.
The Web Master
Skellington, Sally Skellington
Boys and girls, young or old, come close and visit a tale untold. A tale of the dearest and truest one around. A tale of Ashley. Her fire burns bright in the darkest of places and her deepest desire is to bring joy to those around her.
Ashley has been through the roughest of times and sees herself as a survivor, creating her own magic and enduring moments of the harshest realities. But, the joy she spreads is mysterious and delightful. And she promises, dear listener, she doesn’t bite. Very much.
She puts the 'Scream' in 'Scream Team'!
Whitney Reeves is the silent type. Every second of every day she spends keeping careful control over the volume of her voice, never going above a whisper.
That is until October 31st. She earns a position among our top scarers here at Canterbury Creepers by using her voice. Her screams are heard throughout the neighborhood as she corners the guests.
Whitney is also our artist. She can be contacted through us, by email, or her ko-fi (linked above).
The Candy Man Can
This haunting couple are founding members of the Canterbury Creepers. Russell, once a haunter, now retired to the life of a candy man along with his wife, Diane, our lovely candy lady, started this house with our scientist years ago.
There are rumors of ways to get extra candy. Make sure to call out their name three times into a mirror..
Knockin' On Death's Door
In the dark days of 2020, the horsemen of the apocalypse reign over the people. Pestilence, known personally as Madman, runs the world with the others: War, Famine, and, of course, Death. You will be wise to avoid him. Wear your mask and wash your hands before you, too, become his victim.
