One night in September, a large sinkhole was reported in downtown Chicago. Out of it came strange noises and scary visions. Could it be haunted?
According to Nightmares Inc., it certainly is.
Nightmares Inc. has produced Dream Reapers, the No. 1 haunted house in Illinois three years in a row.
This Halloween month, the group is teaming up with Tribune Media Group Events to make the mysterious sinkhole the most frightening experience yet.
