At the Museum of Fear the boogie man doesn’t just pop out at you, he follows you around. The annual scare fest opens tonight — Friday the 11th (would it were the 13th!) of October.

Equipped with elaborate lighting and sound, professional actors and almost real-life props, this “museum” will undoubtedly leave you scared. The Lafayette Science Museum has been presenting the Museum of Fear since 2009, but this year be prepared to be spooked more than ever before. “There are some extremely terrifying scares that I’m excited about. The audience’s response is what we live for,” says Kevin Krantz, the museum director who began working on this year’s haunted house soon after last year’s MoF closed shop.

The Museum of Fear concept is simple: groups of six are unleashed to make it through, by themselves. Admission is $10, and proceeds benefit the museum. For more information check out its Facebook page (search Museum of Fear); for tickets visit
