SPOKANE, Wash. -

I like to consider myself a fairly fearless individual. I haven't really found a movie that has scared me to the point of not sleeping. However, it is that time of year when haunted houses spring up around the area and if I'm being honest, despite knowing that it is all an act, a guy in a mask chasing me with a chainsaw that I know doesn't actually have a chain scares me EVERY. TIME. If I see one of those guys coming at me, suddenly I turn into Usain Bolt. 

But it's all in good fun, even if I might need a new pair of shorts. 

There are a few haunted houses in our area that are sure to give you a good scare. 

The big one is Scarywood in Athol, Idaho. For a few weeks, Silverwood is transformed from a summertime destination of fun into a fall fright fest. Scarywood is full of haunted attractions and plenty of free-roaming monsters, including guys with chainsaws. The park is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday until October 30. If you buy your tickets online in at least three days advance tickets start at $20.99 on Thursday nights and go up $7 each night on Friday ($27.99) and Saturday ($34.99). With haunted houses and a chance to ride Silverwood's signature roller coasters in the dark (and sometimes backwards), you're sure to have a great time. 

In Spokane Valley, you'll find the Valley Mission Haunted Pool. The Spokane Valley Parks and Rec Departments turns the pool into a haunted playground. The pool is only open for two weekends from 7:30pm to 10:00pm, beginning October 16 and 17, and then one last time the following weekend on October 23 and 24. The cost is only $4 and if you bring a can of food for the local food bank, they'll knock off a buck. 

There's also Creepy Hallow Northwest. They are open every Friday and Saturday night in October, including Halloween! They are located in Nine Mile Falls off of Highway 291 near mile marker 19. Tickets are only $5. 

If you're in the Mead area, The King Family Haunted House is located at 15604 N. Freya and they are open every night from October 23-30 from 7-9pm. This haunted house is free, but donations are GREATLY appreciated and all proceeds will be donated to charity, according to their Facebook page. 

This Halloween night, Saturday, October 31, for the first time, the Campbell House will be open on Halloween for trick-or-treaters to stop by from 5-7pm for a spooky scavenger hunt, lots of candy and goody bags, an arts and crafts activity, games, and more. So wear your costume & bring a flashlight for the scavenger hunt! This will be a fun family-friendly Halloween night! It's $5 per person. The Campbell House is located next door to the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture in Browne's Addition, 2316 W. First Ave. For more information, visit www.northwestmuseum.org.

If you're looking for some fun without the kids, you can spend your night listening to some great tunes from Sammy Eubanks, Sammy Eubanks' Halloween Monster Bash, 8:30 pm, Saturday, October 31 (Halloween of course!) at Red Lion Inn at the Park. Overnight hotel packages start at just $139. Don't drink and drive, take the elevator home! Be creative, dress up and you could win $1,000 in the Best Costume Contest. Tickets are just $20.

There is also the Mira-BOO Halloween party at the Mirabeau Park Hotel and Convention Center. With over $2500 in cash & prizes, scary drink specials, and DJ Dean Jaxon from KEY 101, this will be a Halloween event not to be missed! After the party, head into the MAX at Mirabeau bar for more Live Music and Dancing from the Martini Brothers Band until 1am. Tickets are $10 and available at Mirabeau Park Hotel. Room rate specials starting at $49 (Per Guest Based on Double Occupancy ($98) are also available, which includes 2 tickets to the party, and 2 drink vouchers for Bloody Mary Bar Sunday Morning. Mirabeau Park Hotel is located at 1100 N Sullivan Rd in Spokane Valley.

Enjoy a unique experience Halloween night, October 31, at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox, with a screening of the classic 1922 silent film 'Nosferatu' with live soundtrack performed by the Spokane Symphony. 'Nosferatu', the film adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel 'Dracula', is considered to be one of the most influential cinematic masterpieces of all time. Conducting the Spokane Symphony is Morihiko Nakahara, performance begins at 7:30pm. Single tickets are $30 and $15 and are available at the Box Office, or by calling 509-624-1200 and at www.ticketswest.com or 800-325-SEAT. 

If you're not so much a night person, a person who enjoys being scared, or just a pumpkin patch enthusiast, you can always head up to Greenbluff for a good old fashioned pumpkin picking, cider drinking time. 

Sometimes, it's just fun to drive around your neighborhood and look at local houses who have gone all out to scare the neighbors. If you have a house you'd like advertised so people can come look at it, please feel free to post a picture with the location on our Facebook page.

    There are a lot of things President Donald Trump can do on Twitter, but there's one thing a federal judge now says he can't: Block users with dissenting opinions.    A decision by a federal judge in New York on Wednesday is the most prominent in a string of similar cases against public officials.
