19783 Fiona Avenue, Mokena, IL
A perennial favorite of the Horror Tourers, Fear on Fiona is one of those displays that is almost too much to take in. It's also one of those displays that gives lie to the whole "it's just a yard display" mentality that some have - in other words, if it's not a professional haunted house it's not worth it. Well, Fear on Fiona is worth it. It offers lots of props and lots of creativity and, unlike a professional haunt, it's free!
Located in Mokena, home to such other great yard displays as Sunny Acres, Krohn's House of Terror, and Grant's Graveyard, Fear on Fiona offers something for everyone. For classic horror fans there is a prominent display of the Frankenstein monster and his bride; for fans of classic 70's horror there is a setup feature a spinny-headed Reagan on a bed; and for more modern sensibilities there is a homemade Saw guy on a tricycle who moves in and out of a tiny house.
In between there are lots of other themed scenes, including some inbred rednecks, a Victorian glass coffin, an electrocuted skeleton, Hannibal's meat market ( a nod to Silence of the Lambs), and even a fake crematorium setup, cleverly utilizing lighting and air to make the flames seem real. There 's even a giant werewolf, a two headed dog and an alligator - what more could you ask for?
The variety on display is exceptional. This setup has a lot of front yard space, and it is all utilized well.
Additionally, there are many giant picture windows on the house, and each contains a variety of life size props, from ghouls to specters to Chucky and his bride. The garage is set up like an autopsy room, and even the top of the house gets its own prop in the form of some odd looking priestlike character presiding over everything.
In short, Fear on Fiona provides a nice wide variety of things to see, and is fun for all ages. While there is some blood and gore on display, none of it is in your face, making Fear on Fiona safe for Halloween fans of most ages (individual discretion advised, of course). It's well worth a look!
