The Cutting Room


Madison Tanksley

The Granite city Haunted house called “The Cutting Room- back with a vengeance is officially here for Halloween! This Hunting experience opens every Saturday In October. This is located at 1930 Cleveland blvd. Granite City, Illinois 62040. 10$ entry fee. The haunted house got very popular in 2019 and is still very popular in granite city. Actors dress up in scary costumes and greet you with a scary treat. The cutting room is based on horror films and stories. I talked to Brenda Whitaker, Director of Alfresco Productions. They created a back story about a movie director named Barlow James Wickham who went mad and started recreating those scenes in his house of stories. The very first haunted house their arts organization created at the old YMCA and now the Edison artists lofts in downtown Granite City 11 years ago! They chose the Cutting Room- back with a vengeance as Alfresco Productions annual fundraiser because they all love Halloween and haunted houses. I think Granite cities Halloween traditions are amazing and they always bring us together during the autumn nights.
