Howl-O-Scream is giving Facebook fans the chance to face their own fright and vote on several elements of a brand new haunted house – Death Water Bayou.
Deep in the bayou the Voodoo Queen mystically transforms lost wanderers into her minions of evil with black magic. Here, her night servants roam with a zombie-like hunger and seek to grow her collection. The darkest evils lurk in shadows, and travelers must get out before they fall victim to her spell.
Facebook fans will have the opportunity to vote on three key elements of Death Water Bayou, including voodoo doll designs, mask designs and even the name of the town where Death Water Bayou is located. Voting has started on the Howl-O-Scream Facebook page and takes place in a series of three Facebook polls over the course of three weeks.
The Voodoo Queen is #6 in a series of 13 sinister icons for this year’s event. Here’s her official description:
Desiree Yanes came home one night and found her husband with another woman. Enraged, she ran off and disappeared inside the dark swamplands of Louisiana. There, she crafted voodoo dolls and swore then to torment them…with unspeakably sadistic tortures. The Voodoo Queen continues to hide in the swamps of the bayou and perform her twisted Voodoo rituals for others seeking revenge. Brave souls can test their fate at the new house, Death Water Bayou, where the #6 Voodoo Queen mystically transforms lost wanderers into her minions of evil with black magic. Here, her night servants roam with a zombie-like hunger and seek to grow her collection. The darkest evils lurk in shadows. Get out before you fall victim to her spell.
