    I’m a big scaredy-cat when it comes to "haunted" anything. Even though I’ve been known to cover my eyes during previews for horror movies, I always feel the need to do something spooky around this time of year. Maybe it’s the snap in the air, the kitsch of Hillcrest around Halloween, the falling leaves and descending frost: something makes me crave the creep.

    I salute those of you with stronger stomachs and braver hearts, and I’m here to help you get the most scare out of this Halloween you possibly can. Behold: a list of haunted attractions in Louisville where you can scream your little heart out.
