Hellbilly Holler

For the past 11 years Hellbilly Holler has been setting up in North Phoenix. We are a moderately scary display haunt that is always FREE. In 2020 we won the AZhaunters prize for best display haunt.

What you need to know

  • Haunt opens 1 week before Halloween

  • No lines, no walk through, no actors, no touching

  • Feel free to take as many pics as you like

  • FREE but donations are appreciated

What happens when a bunch of hillbillies are too lazy to leave the holler to do some food shopping? All hell breaks loose! The recently dead can't taste that bad can they? Graveyards were raided until there was nothing left. Now what?  


Three hillbillies, Jethro, Bocephus, and Vincent venture down to the wetlands to seek out Lucia the Swamp Witch. They conspire to lure tourists into their lair.


The Hellbillies get the meat, the Witch gets the souls, and the rest goes to the Gators. This arrangement costs them dearly. Souls wear thin when canniBa'alism is practiced.  


Madam Athena, Gypsy fortune teller, wanders the countryside warning travelers to steer clear of Hellbilly Holler. Her foreboding often goes unheeded as travelers seeking potions of love, youth, and revenge venture to the holler for Lucia's dark assistance.  


Many become dinner, few escape.  


What will your fate be?
