The Haunting at the Mall, under the direction of event planner Scott Mekus of Eventz by Scott, opens Friday, Oct. 7, at the Chautauqua Mall in Lakewood.

The indoor haunted house, which is located on the second floor above JCPenney with an exterior entrance behind the store, is celebrating its fourth year of operation. The “Fear Fest IV” haunted house continues every Friday and Saturday through Oct. 28 from 7:30-11:30 p.m. A special kid-friendly haunt on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 3-6 p.m. for $5 per person during the mallwide trick or treat event from 2-4 p.m. will also take place.

This year, each room will be replicated after a well-known horror/scary movie from the past or the present. More than 25 movie titles will be highlighted throughout the haunted house. The cost is $10 for discounted pre-sale tickets available at Don’s Car Wash, Second Chances Thrift Store, Century 21 Turner Brokers and Outrage Art by Chautauqua Comics. The price at the door is $12 per person.

A portion of the proceeds benefit the Chautauqua County Humane Society in Jamestown. For more information or to volunteer, call Mekus at 720-0564, email smekus@eventzbyscott or visit the event’s Facebook page at The Haunting at the Mall.
