I’m not scary. Can I terrify someone in a haunted house?

From Tom Scott plus.

Kevin is @TheBackyardScientist. At Mortem Manor, a year-round haunted house in Orlando, Florida: I’m going to try and scare him. Happy Hallowe’en, everyone. ▪ Mortem Manor: https://www.mortemmanor.com/ – thanks to all the team there!

Probably rated PG-13 (US) or 12 (UK). Occasional minor jump-scares; some flickering lights, which follow an on-screen warning; stage blood and obviously-fake horror make-up, and (of course) horror themes and tropes throughout. One scene of threat with an (obviously fake) needle. A shark. Spiderwebs, but no spiders, despite what Kevin briefly thinks. Cthulhu, and references to sacrifice. Blurred implications of nastier things throughout, but nothing seen on screen!

(these are all minor by horror movie standards, but listed to be safe)
