Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Scary killers from history

    Creepy stories from historical murderers. Some well known, some likely new to you. Starts with H. H. Holmes, known as the "The Devil in the White City" and moves on backwards and forwards in time and around the world. Some murdered for money, some for the thrill, some - who knows! Not a lot of "Boo!" scary or over-the-top gore, but scary real life to make you think.

  • Villains is very creepy

    The dramatic scenes are about famous crimes. The actors are excellent. The sets and lighting are extremely well done. My favorites scenes are Burke and Hare and Lizzie Borden. Don't miss this show.

  • Email Verified Sometimes history is really scary

    Great presentation of witches and witchcraft in history and literature. Really well done dioramas, great live actors portraying witch trials and executions. Pretty scary while also educational. I wouldn't take small kids (take them on Saturday 10/14 at 2 for kids tour), but older kids should be fine. A super value for your $10. And it all goes to support this terrific little museum.

  • Great Halloween Fun for every family

    Super cool haunted house in a really neat museum. Great effort by the Windham Textile Museum to create a fun, spooky and engaging exhibit that will be a really nice experience for any family. Go check it out on Friday the 13th!!! (Also Sat 10/14)

  • Email Verified The Truth is Scarier than Fiction

    This is the perfect haunted house because it's scary for those who like scares, but not for those who don't. That might sound contradictory, but here the scares comes from the history, When you enter, you enter a world of fantasy until the terrifying truth dawns on you....this is reality. That fact is the true horror. At first, it is just a museum tour where history comes to life, literally, including with live actors talking about "Macbeth" with Shakespeare himself and the horror of superstition. It seems innocent enough till you go upstairs. Upstairs, history comes alive as you watch an actual witch trial from the accusation of the witch to the burning. It is very much like a play. Then you go in the maze where you see the execution of the witches. You also see prisoners reaching out for you, crying for you to help them. But you can't. All reality. You are left with the reality that this happens all the time, still. Suddenly, you realize that you are the one with the choice in life and these true horrors happened not because of monsters under the bed, but because of humans and fear of the unknown.

  • Email Verified Enjoyed Nightmare on Main: Witches

    Like last year, I completely enjoyed the Mill Museum's Nightmare on Main: Witches in 2017. The whole experience is focused on who were really called witches, both in history and literature, especially the women tried and executed as witches in CT. Also as a practicing Pagan, I found the event historically accurate and respectful of my spiritual beliefs. It's not too scary for young children and I plan to go again with my friends who have yet to attend.

  • Email Verified A history lesson both subtle and blunt

    Experience the walk-thru and you'll witness unbelievable and gruesome stories of witch frenzy in 17th century New England. You'll set to wondering how Puritan settlers could get so wrapped up in religion-based fear and frenzy over witches, the Devil's handmaidens. Seriously, not for small children. Then cap it off in a fun and creepy turn with the popular witch stereotype, hooked nose, frizzed hair and bad, bad teeth--the whole thing. A grim history lesson with a riotous finale.
