October is well known for Halloween and haunted houses.

But how do the creators of these halls of horror come up with the perfect scare?

It's a balance of both art and most definitely science.

Matthew Stehlik is the Owner, Designer, and Operator of Hinterland Haunted Attraction in Ashley.

One example of the way he is adding a little science to his scaring is by subtly using bass played through speakers to increase or decrease a persons heart rate before being spooked.

Check out the first video for the interview and a preview.

Watch the second video for a brief walk-through of the first few rooms with Ahmad and his photographer Mike.
