...will premiere TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2014/10/15/abc-announces-the-six-families-competing-in-the-great-halloween-fright-fight/315399/

Here's the 6 families (thanks to Pumpkinrot for posting this on his blog which is where I saw it):

“Hollywood Haunter” – Glendale, CA

Husband and wife duo, Chris and Jeana, are professional set decorators who use their Hollywood know-how to construct an entirely new haunted facade in front of their house every Halloween. This year they’re hoping to bury the competition with a traditional haunted house design, complete with coffins custom fit for the judges.



“Haunted Overload” – Lee, NH

Eric always loved scaring people, so together with his wife Janice, he built a larger than life haunt on a sprawling wooded farm. Using mainly organic materials, giant props are crafted up to four stories high. This haunt is sure to overload your senses.



“Terror at Tee Lake” – Lewiston, MI

On a lakeside cabin resort, Dave and Andy create a handmade drive-thru haunt spanning their 4 acre property with a variety of unique displays from a Day of The Dead area to a carnival zone with clowns. Using Andy’s expert graphic design skills and Dave’s construction know-how, the pair has created a world of eerie neon characters, waiting for you behind every bend.



“The Pirate Ship” – Celebration, FL

Every year the Pirate Ship of Celebration Florida brings thousands of visitors from nearby Disneyworld to enjoy this pirate themed haunt. Creators Neil and Julie construct a life size pirate ship inhabited by pillaging pirate skeletons that completely covers their house. Prepare to walk the plank!



“Mitchell's Spider Invasion” – Pensacola, FL

Halloween is a special time of year for Shawn and Lynne, they got married on Halloween and love creating DIY home haunts from scratch every year. This Halloween, the couple is taking arachnophobia to a whole new level as giant mutant spiders invade their home, trapping trick-or-treaters inside their massive webs.



“Haunt for the Hungry” – Wharton, NJ

Horror movie buffs Anthony and Toby, along with their 12 year old daughter Ava, use magic and practical illusions to make their gory backyard maze feel frighteningly real. Scare actors will send you screaming, but if you can slow down enough to not run away, you’ll get to appreciate all of the fascinating details, like a homemade elevator that takes you down a mine shaft to start the tour.

Strange there are only six families competing.
The Christmas Light Fight had I think three families competing every week for four or five weeks.

Haunted Overload will probably win due to the shear size of the place. Other than that, I've been a huge fan of Chris and Jeana's. They're on youtube and to a really wonderful job with their haunt.

I've got it set to record, but here on the west coast we still have 2-1/2 hours to wait. Please don't post who wins until we get to see it! Thanks!

Watching now! Pretty amazing stuff so far. The couple doing the spider invasion look so familiar. Where have I seen them before?

He did the Christmas show & I wanna say he was on that ABC Ty Pennington show, renovation something. At least he was Halloween orange!

Even with him, I still enjoyed the show. It's gotta be super cheap to put on too. Outside of the prize money (which in TV money land is pennies) & production costs (the crew, the plane & hotel costs to each city, etc.) it's cheaper than Modern Family or the latest Tim Allen crap. They stayed fairly safe, didn't go to anything super gory, super violent, so I'm sure they'll be doing this one again next year. There's plenty out there to go to.
