Hell house

Owners of a Cloverdale home have cooked up another smorgasbord of scare for Halloween.

Skeletons prowl the front lawn of a Cloverdale home.

A Reporter reader tipped us to this exceptionally creative, and well-decorated local home,  decked out for Halloween.

Located at 17388 62A Avenue, it’s well worth a cruise-or-walk-by, day or night. There are so many clever touches to appreciate, from the life-sized skeletons scaling up the large tree in the front yard, to the small but scary graveyard, hand-made cutouts of witches and other seasonal decor, blow ups, spiders, bats and gauzy white fabric wafting from the eaves.

Look past the caution tape through the front window – there are creepy things lurking inside the home, too.

“Honestly, we think Halloween is a lot less stressful than Christmas,” key decorator Sherry Denexter explains. It takes about a day to put the display up  each year, and another to take it down, an exercise that’s well worth it. Sherry always thinks of the little kids who come around trick or treating each Halloween. “They’re going to remember it when they grow up,” she says. “We’re making memories.”

It’s a visual smorgasbord of scare. Full marks to this one. Sources say the home is also the focus of a charming Christmas display.
