Pictures: Dare you enter the Halloween house of horrors?
HIDDEN in an ordinary street in the unassuming village of Skirlaugh lies a den of witches, monsters, ghosts and skeletons.
Few dare to cross the threshold and enter the house of horrors.
Those who do brave the home of Sarah Hall, in Lambwath Villas, are greeted by bats and gravestones lying in the garden.
On entering you are addressed by a sickly green monster.

But it is in the living room where the horror really comes to life.
Among the array of Halloween nightmares is a life-sized butler and a witch whose eyes light up like a demon possessed.
But Sarah, 58, is no necromancer or devil worshipper.
The dental lab worker has opened up her chamber of terror all in the name of charity.
"I have been doing this for about 12 years and I started it when I lived in Essex," she said.
Sarah asks people for a £1 donation to view the vast array of creepy figures, toys and paraphernalia she has collected over the years.
"It began when I bought a few things for my children and then my grandchildren," she said. "The collection just got bigger and bigger.
"When the children grew out of it I didn't know what to do with it all. I decided it would be a good idea to try to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Care by displaying it to the public.
"I became quite well known in the village where I lived down south so I thought there is no reason not to do it up here as well.
"I have had a few visitors so far and it has been well received."
Many of the animated figures in Sarah's home are triggered with motion censors.
When they all scream, shout and wail together, it can be quite a daunting experience.
"The children seem to love it and it's the adults who get most frightened," said Sarah.
"I have collected so much over the years with a lot of it coming from Salem in America which is famous for its witches.
"I think the life-sized creepy butler is my favourite."
Surprisingly, Sarah is not a big fan of the macabre.
"I never watch horror films or read spooky books but I have always been interested in witches," she said.
"This is something I will carry on doing until I die.
"Most of my family think I am mad but my sister also has a large Halloween collection too."
Sarah feels she owes something to Macmillan after the support the charity gave her. She said: "My mum died of cancer.
"She came to live with me when she became ill and I don't know what I would have done without the charity.
"My mother-in-law also died of cancer and the Macmillan nurse was brilliant with my father-in-law."
The display at Sarah's home at 10 Lambwath Villas, Skirlaugh, will continue until tomorrow.
