Enjoy Halloween this year by visiting some of the local commercial haunted houses in Connecticut 2017. It is not the zombies, freaks, vampires, devils, or spirits you need to worry about. These ghosts don’t connect with humans very well. Connecticut haunts bring lots of thrills and terror to visitors in October.
