The only thing spookier and scarier than a werewolf bar mitzvah? A haunted house. And with less than two weeks to go until Halloween, they’re everywhere right now, frightening the you-know-what out of men, women, and children alike. You won’t find me anywhere near Knott’s Scary Farm or Pennhurst Asylum, though — if I have to pay money to see something disturbing, I’ll buy a ticket to Boo! A Madea Halloween, thank you very much.

But some people (read: weirdos) will fork over $40 to see a boogie man — or possibly boogie men — “jump out and chase people out the door at the end of the haunted house.” That experience was so scary, “I’m pretty sure one sh*t himself, my whole room reeked of pure unadulterated assh*le for far too long to have been a fart.” That delightful story was shared in a 2015 Reddit post asking haunted house employees to name some of the “scariest and most insane things” they’ve seen. This year’s haunted house-theme Reddit AMA asked: what’s the funniest thing the actors have seen while scaring people?

The answers did not disappoint.

I was a talking head on a table. A group of five people led by a girl comes into my room and when the get close to me I say “Hello” fairly nonchalantly. The girl in front screams and falls backwards with a domino effect taking everyone else in her group with her. (Via)
