Parishioners portray scenes depicting issues such as abortion, suicide, and school shootings. Churches put up these Hell Houses with the goal of giving thrill-seekers a chance to receive salvation.

Scaremare is sponsored by the Center for Youth Ministries at the nearby Liberty University. Fridays and Saturdays can typically average between 2,000 to 4,000, so you'll want to get there early.

"I would just like to say that Scaremare is great. I think it is well worth the wait to get in. I would also like to thank all of the volunteers for making it very scary and spooky for all to enjoy, they do a great job."

This attraction was immortalized in the 2002 documentary Hell House. Each year, the house gets over 10,000 people who watch seven morality plays.

"Hell house is always a good experience when we go. I'm a youth minister and we take our teens each year. It's good for allowing people to sober up to what the world around us is really like. Kudos to Trinity church for continuing to put this on each year. Go at least once and decide for yourself."

3. Hell House - Tyler, Texas

In the past, the church has presented scenes including a preacher officiating over a same-sex marriage and a high school football star committing suicide. No one under 12 is allowed.

"Hell house is an alternative to Halloween and an incredible outreach to the lost, and to those battered by life's hurts and lies of the enemy."

6. Judgement House - White Pine, Tennessee

This Judgement House is actually free. Free entertainment, free food. Walk-ins are welcome.
