Ravenblood Mortuary Haunted House now open

When Nathan Ravenblood lost his beloved he made a chilling deal with the Angel of Death. Collect souls and he will be reunited with those who have passed on.

Desperate, Nathan agreed and turned the Ravenblood Mortuary into a house of bloody horror.

George Frey with America Screams brings this story to life in the Ravenblood Mortuary Haunted House now open at 3919 Park Drive, Suite 80, (Raley’s shopping center) in El Dorado Hills. The house, recommended for brave souls 10 and older, is open from 7 to 11 p.m. everyday through Halloween.

“It takes a few minutes to go through,” said Frey, 35 of El Dorado Hills. “If you get too scared it takes about a minute!”

Haunting started as a hobby for Frey, who said he got inspiration from his mother, who loved to decorate and scare kids on Halloween. “She was an avid haunter,” he explained.

The poison apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Frey helped out with the Hands 4 Hope Haunted House last year and decided this year to put on his own horror show. After finding a suitable and reasonably priced location, George, his wife Tina Frey and friend Chris Montoya from Manteca built Ravenblood Mortuary Haunted House with many handmade props, blood splatter everywhere and a few familiar characters who could pop out at any time.

The tour takes brave souls through a slaughter room, a bathroom where one zombie-like resident “gets something scared out of her,” a zombie nursery and a cemetery where that infamous Angel of Death makes an appearance. Up to seven live actors are also in and around the haunted house at any given time. Watch out behind you and run when you hear the whir of the chain saw.

“We also bring in guest appearances from Michael Myers, Freddy … all those guys,” George said.

“If you’re looking for a scary, heart-throbbing adrenaline rush this is the place,” he added. “I’m all about the gore.”

Tickets to the Ravenblood Mortuary Haunted House are $10 per person/$8 with a  student ID; Children 10 and younger get in free. Proceeds benefit Bikers Against Child Abuse, Soldiers’ Angels and Sons of Italy. You can purchase tickets at americascreams.showclix.com or at the door.
