Summary:

The year is 1932. The once hopeful timber community of Hickory Ridge, Louisiana is tapped-out, it's few remaining inhabitants in the depths of the Great Depression.

A desperate attempt by a grieving man, obsessed with communicating with loved ones long-lost, has had drastic consequences. The door has been opened and an ancient evil has spilled into present and refused to return to the Dark.

Events that followed would haunt those woods for generations.

Every fall at Dark Woods, nightmares rule the darkness and the bloody, disturbing past of Hickory Ridge creeps beyond the veil. Each season offers new chills and thrills, making the experience unique every time you enter the woods. Dark Woods offers two haunted houses in an ever-changing, fun-filled Halloween experience with roaming creatures of the night and mayhem with streets transformed into sinister scare zones guaranteed to give you a fright!
