Trick-or-treaters in Angela Kinsey’s neighborhood better beware. Kinsey and her husband, Josh Snyder, are building a driveway haunted house for the kiddos in their neighborhood this year, and this isn’t their first haunted house rodeo. The Kinsey-Snyder household built a driveway haunted house last year, too. So having gained experience, this thing is undoubtedly going to be spooktacular. 

“Just a man and his haunted house,” Kinsey captioned an Oct. 10 Instagram pic of Snyder she shared on Insta. “He’s almost done building it and then we decorate the inside!”

It looks like Snyder is building the thing out of PVC pipe and black plastic sheeting, which is available at most hardware stores as it’s often used as a vapor barrier between insulation and drywall.

Snyder shared a photo earlier this month of what the haunted house looks like from the top. It’s a labyrinth of terror — it’s just missing the terror part as of right now. “Haunted House 2021 is coming along nicely!” Snyder captioned the pic. “Roof goes on this weekend after the rain!”

And the rain nearly took the entire thing down! Snyder shared a video on Oct. 11 showing just how bad the wind was during the storm. Luckily, he bungee-corded the structure to the house and weighed it down with sandbags so that it wouldn’t get swept away.

“The haunted house is taking a beating. Winds gusting up to 40 mph,” he wrote in the caption. “I’m hoping it won’t break in half. I might have cursed a lot. Ange is pouring me a scotch. We’ll see how it looks after the storm passes. Son of a…!”

So…what goes inside? Snyder has amassed quite the cache of creepy objects since erecting his first driveway haunted house in 2020. Here’s just a sampling of what brave visitors will see when they enter into the maze. 

“Here we goooooo,” Kinsey commented on his post. “Sorry in advance to our neighbors.”

It’s (delightfully) frightening to think of what this thing will look like when it’s done.
