For the past 13 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.
Each year we strive to expand the haunt introducing new props, lighting, and projection. We have added quite a bit of solar lighting so the haunt can be in "Nightlight"mode after closing. Hellbilly Holler is about 1/2 custom built and 1/2 store bought.
In 2021 we introduced our Wendigos in a laser vortex tunnel. And in 2022 we will be introducing "The Twins" Merle & Earl, our blood puking water feature. And we are also adding a last minute scarecrow named "Beakistair Crowley".

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?
