PONTIAC (WWJ) As he gets set to host the first “summer scream” event at the haunted house billed as one of the scariest in the world, Erebus owner Ed Terebus revealed some real-life haunts.
“I hear noises all the time — didn’t you know this place is haunted?” he told WWJ’s Sandra McNeill.
Summer Scream will keep Erebus open all weekend in downtown Pontiac, July 11, 12 and 13, for a unique summer tour of his facility — in the dark. Visitors will walk through the spooky site with only a glow stick to guide them through a half-mile of horror.
What should they expect?
“Usually with the lights on, you can anticipate where things are going to come out and get you, I turn the lights off and you don’t know where anything is going to come at you,” Terebus said. “And you’re totally disoriented.”
So, how scary is Erebus? “We actually had a paranormal investigation team come in here and find ghosts, so there are really ghosts in here,” he said. “One of them was actually saying my name as I was sleeping 20 feet away on the other side of a wall.”
