  • A MUST SEE Halloween Spooktacular Event!

    My Family and Friends visit Joe's House EVERY Year! He is one of the Nicest People you will every meet. The time and care that goes into what he creates is unbelievable! He really wants everyone to enjoy themselves and have a really fun and spooky night! Some of the younger kids got pretty scared and Joe went up to them, took his mask off and let them know it was all make believe. I saw him go on to explain how it to him 3 and half months to build and create. He really does an Awesome thing for everyone who visits him! Can't wait to see what he does this year! Great Job Joe!

  • The Best Home Haunted House on Long Island!!

    Joe Allocco wins again hands down for the Best Haunted House on Long Island! My Family, Friends and I have been visiting his house for the past 12 years and IT IS (without a Doubt) THE BEST! It is a TRUE HOME HAUNT in every sense of the word! So many of these other Home Haunts claim to be actual Haunts! THEY ARE NOT!! They are Halloween Yard Displays! There is a difference! You actually walk through a Home Haunt with different rooms and actors not view it from the front yard!! A Home Haunt is a Haunted House you walk through and a Yard Haunt is a decorated front yard! A Home Haunter will always go that extra distance for his craft! He is a true master of his craft and gives the visitors exactly what they want! The Franklin Square Horror always goes that extra mile, whereas, these other so called Haunts just have something "nice" to look at. He also does it for a great cause for Cerebral Palsy and Autism Organizations! 100% of any donations visitors may give goes to those Organizations! This is also the 2nd Year in a Row Long Islanders voted his Haunt the 1st Place - Best on Long Island in the Long Island Press / Bethpage Federal Credit Union Best of Long Island Contest! Congratulations Joe!!! Keep up the Great work!! We will see you again this year!!!

  • A for Effort

    The house is decorated nicely, looks like a lot of work went into it because it is just done by one person. Some* of the neighbors get into it and come out to scare the people on line, of course it's only scary if you're under 8. But still, with a good attitude, it's fun. I just felt the the trip through it wasn't even a whole 50sec. It was extremely short. The theme was house of voodoo and there was one shamin at the end, and some fake fortune tellers. It was cute that one of the actors was using his iphone flash as an effect. Honestly, Just wish it was longer. Not fun to wait in line for an hour, for something so short. *Neighbors from maybe three homes were into it, the others wouldn't even answer their door for the children trick or treating while their guardians wait in line. Kids get bored. The might as well trick or treat at the near by homes.

  • It was alright

    i went last year. I myself do get scared easily , i went through the haunted house and surpassingly wasn't scared at all, idk lol to me everything that is creepy or jumps out at me scares me, but i guess maybe i could deal with scary stuff. its the 1st haunted house use ever been to lol , but everything else was nice, actors and decorations were on point. The house is more of like a spooky decoration kind of deal, occasionally there would be 4maybe 4 actors inside that are inside, but most of them are usually outside scaring people on the street.

    I've been visiting this Haunt with my friends and Family since 2005. It's our Tradition! It's the LAST House on a DEAD END!

If you are like me and Love Halloween, then this is the ONE and ONLY Home Haunt you should NOT miss on Halloween Night! Keep up the Great Work Joe!!

  • Award Winning Home Haunt

    I love this Haunt!! I go every year with my Family! We make it a Tradition. Last year they won an Award for their Haunt from their Home Town. They were Recongnized for 18 years of service to the Community! I love the fact that they put all this work into what they do so that everyone and their kids can have an Awesome Halloween Night! It's better then the professional Haunts you would have to pay $15.00 or more for. This is just as professional, if not better!

  • The BEST Home Haunt I've ever been to...

    I know there are a lot of creative people out there, but this guys tops the list! He does an incredible job year after year with the design of this Haunted House Walk- Through. I can see why he was Chosen as One of the Best Home Haunts in the Country. I go every year with my family. We make it part of our Halloween Tradition. It's AWESOME and a lot of FUN and it goes to good cause for the disabled.

  • SCARY

    I've spent $25 to get into haunted houses that couldn't compare to this. $5 - what a bang for your buck plus the money goes to a charity. Well laid out. The props & lightning were awesome. Actors really got into their roles. I've heard a bunch of little kids crying... don't know what their parents were thinking of when they brought them there. It really is a great haunt.

  • Scary!!!!

    The look of this house and it's "live"actors is what makes this home haunt/haunted house so successful! They do an incredible job here year after and me and my family make it tradition to see what new scares they come up with every year! Keep up the good work guys!
