GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - With Halloween right around the corner, haunted houses will soon start opening their doors. Two businessmen with connections to the movie industry are getting ready to present Terror on the Coast inside a huge warehouse in Gulfport.
This haunted house promises to be unlike any other.
"It's going to be a very scary experience," said Kevin Mitchell.
Mitchell and his business partner, Lawrence Barattini, have turned an abandoned warehouse into a haunted house called Terror on the Coast.
The duo own thousands of movie props used in the film industry. They decided to build sets and use actors to create a frightful experience.
"This has been a dream of ours to bring this stuff to life and bring something to the Coast that the Coast has never seen with movie sets in a haunt," Mitchell said.
Terror on the Coast is inside the old milk of magnesia plant off Highway 49. The brain trust behind the project provides film props and builds sets for the movie business in Louisiana, and they've brought it all to South Mississippi for Terror on the Coast.
"You can expect motion picture quality props and set building. It's not your typical haunted house. It's over the top," said Barattini.
Terror on the Coast is coming. It will be open Friday and Saturday nights in October. Live action and professional sets should make this a memorable experience.
"I want people to say, 'Wow. That's something we've never encountered before, and it's right here in Gulfport, MS,'" Mitchell said.
More than a dozen separate rooms with different themes will feature some of the best known actors on the Coast portraying characters that should send a chill up your spine.
