Nights of Gore haunts hard

You don't even want to know whats lurking in there.

A cornfield, just past a graveyard in a place called Gore? That's a spot just begging to be haunted. But the Nights of Gore Haunted Corn Maze wasn't always a place to fear when the sun goes down. By day, it's the Courthouse Hill, a family-run farm that just happened to have put its fields of corn to good use this autumn, and at a mere 45-minute jaunt, it's the closest corn maze to Halifax. "Growing up I spent a lot of time in the fields and thought it would be nice to have a path," says Emmett Blois. "Then the haunting part came naturally. Have you ever been in a cornfield at night? Corn stalks rustling in the breeze? It gets a little creepy." No doubt. Add some costumed actors with impeccable timing and the result might just involve paranoia sweats, a double-time heart rate and 13-year-old shrieking. "I think people like it because it jacks their adrenaline in a safe environment," says Blois. What he means is: the folks hiding in the corn stalks are gonna scare the crap out of your, but fear not, they won't lay a finger on you. If utter terror isn't your bag, check out the beautiful Courthouse Hill farm and fields in the day, when you know exactly where any rustling is coming from.

To Sun Oct 28, Courthouse Hill Farm, Fri 12-6pm/7:30-10:30pm, Sat 10am-6pm/7:30-10:30pm, Sun 10am-6pm/7:30-9:30pm, $5-$12, for directions see nightsofgore.com
