In the glow of moonlight's faint pallor, ghastly figures creep waywardly among the living. A chainsaw's grating whine clips the air as clusters of teens scurry with terrified squeals. But when the ghouls and goblins begin to belt show tunes and dance with theatrical precision, the scene quickly evolves into a family-friendly night of thrills. The musical ghosts at Six Flags America's annual Fright Fest are among just one of many area attractions promising a frightfully good time this weekend before Halloween.

FOR THE PAST few months, volunteers have been working long hours to make the Taneytown Jaycees' 24th annual Haunted Barn one of the community group's best. But some "weird" things that have occurred over the years have left one volunteer wary of solitude in the barn. "I simply will not be in that barn alone," said Vickie Hunter, the Taneytown Jaycees community development vice president. Hunter said one year the volunteers were having a meeting on the first floor of the barn when they heard footsteps upstairs.

Less than half an hour before the Haunted Barn opens for business, Freddy Krueger and Hannibal Lecter are still missing and, as one of the kids tells Troy Lescalleet, "Andy doesn't want to play Bigfoot tonight."Needless to say, this is not the sort of scare Lescalleet had in mind.As president of the Taneytown Jaycees and co-chairman of the Haunted Barn committee, he's in charge of running the show. That's what a haunted house - or in this case, a barn - is, really. A show. An elaborate Halloween production with a cast of 65, give or take a few ghouls.
