Behind the scenes at House of Torment, Austin's scariest haunted house

Bryan Mays and Yvonne Nava helped out at the popular Austin haunted house.

AUSTIN, Texas — House of Torment is a popular Austin spot around the Halloween holiday. Some consider the haunted house one of the scariest in the United States.

This year there are three different haunted experiences for visitors: "Clown," "Rise of the Dead" and "Dimensions of Darkness."

There are more than 100 employees on the staff at House of Torment that keep the scares coming. While you see the actors when you make your way through the haunted house, you don't always see the behind-the-scenes staff that designs and builds the rooms themselves.

KVUE's Bryan Mays and Yvonne Nava joined assistant general manager Chase McBride to help with some behind the scenes work. Using wooden blocks to scrape holes in latex paint, Mays and Nava created a wall that appeared to be covered in ripped skin. Of course a little fake blood was added to make it even scarier.
