Troy Frantz joins Deb and Per October 27, 2018

Troy is not your usual homeowner. He bought a nice home, but each year he turns it into a destination of macabre terror. Troy is a home haunter, the creative and engineering genius behind Hellmouth Haunted House. Each year he stages a haunted house at his home. This year–to our ghoulish delight–his haunt is on hold, leaving him free to talk with us. Hear how each year he’s able to delight trick or treaters and haunt lovers and why he does it year after year. Did you know there’s even a fairly large community of like-minded hobbyists?

In addition to his day job as a mobile auto mechanic, Troy Frantz is a home haunter and host of the Halloween Hellmouth vlog.
