Yikes. While I sure do love checking out awesome Halloween displays, I’ll admit that this one definitely wins the most creepiest house of the year.
According to Yahoo Parents, locals are completely outraged that this “gruesome” Halloween display is within walking distance of an elementary school in Parma, Ohio.
One mother named Jackie Anselmo has even asked the city to get homeowners to modify their displays because it’s beginning to creep her out.
She wrote on her Facebook page, “This ‘creative’ Halloween display is within an elementary school zone. Yes, you are seeing bodies mutilated, strung upside down from an inverted cross and the tree. Parts [missing from the picture] are the bloodied impaled bodies … As I said, this is in plain view of 5-10 year olds at the elementary school. They, and many younger siblings, have to walk past this daily to get to school.”
Some local critics are telling this mom and other parents to simply get a grip, while reminding them that the origin of Halloween was all about scaring the crap out of everyone. Still, Anselmo is sticking by her claim that some of these displays are too scary for her little ones.
“I love a good Halloween display,” she wrote on Facebook. “But a 5-year-old should not have to process this while sitting in a classroom.”
