Halloween is this weekend, and if you are looking for something to do that will scare you to the core, you are in luck!
USA Today just released its "10 Best Haunted Attractions" in the country, and a haunted house in Fort Worth took the top spot.
The USA Today writers call the Cutting Edge Haunted House more than just a haunted house. The entertainment begins the moment guests enter the parking lot.
If you have driven along I-30, just east of downtown Fort Worth, there's a good chance you have seen the huge inflatable ghoul on the roof of a 100-year-old abandoned meat packing plant. It's hard to miss. The area is knows as “Hell’s Half Acre.”
Check out photos from 2012 when NBCDFW visited the Cutting Edge below.
