Frightville XII 2012 at the Rollerbarn in Whidbey IslandWritten on October 21, 2012 Categories: Events and Travel
Frightville XII, A name and event many natives of Whidbey Island are familiar with. Every year this hard core group of volunteers come together at the Oak Harbor Roller Barn to scare the living crap out of its residents. But before you run off in terror you have to ask yourself
do you feel lucky punk? why? These guys put hours of effort into building sets, getting in character, and volunteering their time. The reason of course is to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Oak Harbor. If you would like to help, volunteer or donate please visit here.
We discovered this haunted house through a client of the studio, Johanna and she was gracious enough to invite us out to shoot it. You all might remember the shoot we did last year, if not you can see it here!
’twas the night before Frightville
and all through the house
All the creatures were restless and ready to pounce
Victims beware for you have little hope Enter the shadows so dark and so deep….
In the graveyard there is terror
that crawls and that creeps….
Beware lost souls, ghoulish and ghastly.
Honor the stone of the clown
and the lady named Ashley.Enter the room of the priestess known only as Jo.
Whose fortunes are told from a ball that’s aglow
Her advice you should hear and probably heed.
If not then beware, you’re in danger indeed.
The kitchen was bathed in an eerie green glow….
From faucets and sinks the blood was aflow…
The roaches do scurry, the germs multiply….
Our Scream Queen prepares a meal that’s to die.
The bathroom was once all spotless and bright…..
Now it’s become a dreary, sad sight.
The builders have made some ghastly mistakes.
Beware all who enter what the plumber does snake.
On the floor and the walls the blood was a splattered
the snakes, they will scare
and the bones, they will clatter
The zombies’ with teeth, your skull they might bash
behind the walls, what hides? your dreams we will crash
The Moon in the Swamp gave off an Odd Glow
But the broken Bridge proved there was nowhere to go
And what the lost and wandering victims did see
but the Insane doctor Vic amids his Autopsy
The walls of the attic, how they groan and they creak….
Who knows the havoc the creatures may wreak?
Outside the church the thunder does storm….
All who enter here now are in danger of harm.
The dolls were all hung by their necks on a thread
You could almost Hear whispers “You’re all but dead”
With Giggles in his Wig and Sparkles in her mask
All the Frightville monsters were up to the Task….
The skaters roll like thunder, making laps overhead…
the absent ghouls wish they could be there to help raise the dead.
The smell of rattle can paint and fog in the air…
the willing prepare to enter, with a friend or a dare.
They’ll squirm and they’ll scream, thru the house with no light…
we love and we miss you, have a great opening night!!!
The clown we call Giggles is ready to go;
Gather round one last time for the start of the show
To the creatures he speaks and makes ready tonight.
Keep your hands to yourself and remember, don’t bite
Have a scary good time…
Make our guests shaky and weepy.
But to all I remind you,
Remember….SCARY, NOT CREEPY
Spooky Frightville to all and to all a good fright!
And when you are ready to step into the nightmare here is when you can do it!

Just to let you all know, just because I was shooting didn’t mean the ghouls and ghost at Frightville weren’t going to try and have their way with me. They would come out and scare the crap out of me at every opportunity!
