It's a bold move claiming to be the most haunted house in Illinois but when you're rated one of the spookiest in the midwest you've earned the right to brag.

The right to brag is increased when your haunted attraction draws enough of a crowd to be open several months a year and not only during the Halloween season. This is the case for Basement of the Dead Haunted House in Aurora, Illinois.

Aside from Halloween, Basement of the Dead Haunted House centers around themes like St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day, and, yes, Christmas too.

How spooky can Christmas get, really?

It sounds like it can hit a Level 10 out of 10 on the fear gauge. Check out this note in their FAQs.

We have had people, including many adults, that left through emergency exits and refused to finish and others who run through screaming and laughing the whole way through.

What should be expected at A Very Scary Axe-Mas? Santa and his demented helpers... because elves are scary enough as it is.
