Review: 10th Grade Haunted Hallway 2016

Strobe lights? Mirrors? People in cages? Sounds like the Haunted Hallway. This Halloween, Montrosians celebrated with the annual costume competition and a walk (or run) through the spooky Haunted Hallway. The tenth grade organized the Haunted Hallway as a haunted carnival and participated as clowns, dolls, or animals.

Abigail Finnerty ‘19 explained why she enjoyed working on the Haunted Hallway: “I thought it was a good opportunity for class bonding.” Mariel Rosati ‘19 added: “I’d been looking forward to it for a long time, and it was fun working as a class to create something scary.” Meagan Flynn ‘19 said: “It was stressful, but it all worked out in the end.”  

Many Montrosians enjoyed the Haunted Hallway and were more than a little creeped out. Steph Ciampa ‘20 explained, “The strobe lights were scary, and I thought the mirrors were cool.” Another freshman, Mary Dyke ‘20, agreed:  “The Haunted Hallway was loud with good mirrors and strobe lights.”

Olivia Goughan ‘18 entered with her low expectations for the scare factor. She said, “I didn’t think it was going to be that scary!” However, she told  me that it  was cool and she was definitely scared. Finally, I grabbed Mrs. Young in the (not Haunted) hallway and asked what she thought of the Haunted Hallway shenanigans. She replied, “It had great decorations and was full of the loudest screams I’ve ever heard.”  Monica Crevier ‘22 perfectly summed up the Haunted Hallway in just three words: “creepy, scary, clowns.” Happy Halloween!
