Behind the Scenes of a Denver Haunted House, Plus More Ways to Spend Your Halloween

Halloween starts early in Denver -- about two weeks early, to judge by this year's slate of events -- and there's no better way to spend it than by getting good and scared at one of the city's many haunted houses. To get a better idea of all the work that goes into the scares, we sent videographer Bailey Geoghan to visit City of the Dead and meet the actors, makeup artists and set-construction staff who put it together every year.
