This story has been amended to correct an error in a date. The band at the West 15th Street haunted house is playing on Oct. 28, not the opening night, as previously published.
So, you’ve got a house decked out to the nines with terrifying Halloween decor and you’re ready to scare the bejesus out of anyone who dares visit… the only problem is, nobody knows about your blood-curdling creative venture.
Sound familiar? Well, not to fear, because we’re bringing back our annual haunted house map – a detailing of the most frightful homes here on the North Shore – and there’s plenty of room for newcomers.
Returning for another year is the annual walk-through haunted house at 1336 West15th St. , between Pemberton and Phillip Avenues in North Vancouver's Norgate. Scare-meister Christopher Smith, the brains behind the operation, promises this year’s iteration is even bigger and better than that of previous years.
He remains tight-lipped on the finer details but assures that it’s going to make for one “very electrifying experience,” with a longer walkthrough, extra jump scares and even more high-energy special effects.
The house runs from Oct. 27-31 from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m., with a live band set to perform on Oct. 28. Admission is free, however minimum donations of $5 per person are encouraged – with all donations set to go towards the West Vancouver SPCA.
“We raised $5,000 for the West Vancouver SPCA last year, and we’re going to try and double that this year,” he said.
Homes everywhere from Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove will be getting in on the spooky action, with annual family friendly events like the Great Grand Boulevard Walk and the Capilano Suspension Bridge’s Canyon Frights set to make their return.

Each house is pinpointed with a black ghost, and includes a photo of its display.
