Halloween comes early to Long Beach every year thanks to the massive Midsummer Scream Halloween and Horror Convention that invades the Convention Center.

The star of the macabre weekend is the always popular Hall of Shadows, a dark space filled with haunts possessed by things like powerful witches, mad cannibals, all-star slashers and murderous families.

These creatures make up some of the best amateur haunts that pop up all over Southern California when Halloween comes around, and at August’s Midsummer Scream they offered their victims a tiny sneak peek of what’s to come in October.

So to help you decide where to invest your screams this Halloween, here’s a review of the haunts that took place at the convention which you can attend later on in the year.

The October versions will be bigger and scarier than the condensed haunts offered at Midsummer Scream, but this should give you a good idea of what you can expect.
