Original post: Those of you who are not willing to a) cry in public b) scream until even strep would be better c) need an extra pair of pants or c) faint need not continue reading this. This contest is only for the truly brave, those who know the reputations of Denver's area haunted houses and laugh in the face of their fear. Those who want to go again this year (and want to do so for free). If you are one of those people, we've got you covered -- with free tickets too Haunted Mansion and 13th Door haunted house. Keep reading for details on how to win.

2. Sign in to Livefyre with your Facebook account and then leave us a comment below with your name (the one that appears on your driver's license) and e-mail address (if your Facebook page doesn't have your contact info, so we can send you a note if you win), and tell us what your favorite horror movie is -- and why.
3. Then, check back this coming Monday afternoon to see if you've won. Quick heads-up: These are hard tickets, so you'll need to stop by our office at 969 Broadway anytime before Wednesday afternoon to pick them up.
4. Sit back and relax. Good luck!
