There are so many haunted houses to choose from in Illinois but which one is the most frightening?

I remember in high school, each weekend in October my friends and I would track down the scariest haunted houses in Illinois.

We didn't have the internet, websites, or social media back then to lead us in the right direction. Many of them we found out by word of month. Most of them were good. We hardly ever ran into a stinker. It would be hard to pick out the best one.

According to an article on msn.com"The Scariest Haunted Houses In Each State," what is the winner for Illinois?

They picked "Statesville Haunted Prison in Crestwood, Illinois."

"It contains 23 maximum security cells where visitors come eye to eye with over 100 criminals. Once visitors make it out of the prison, they'll find themselves in caves containing the graves of Statesville's past inmates, and, of course, zombies."

I have never been there personally, but I've heard good things or would that be scary things about it. I would say it's on the bucket list for haunted houses to visit.

It's not far from Rockford, so it's definitely worth going to check out.

Here is some video footage.

WARNING: BECAUSE IT IS A HAUNTED HOUSE, SOME OF THE IMAGES IN THE VIDEOS COULD BE CONSIDERED DISTURBING AND NSFW.

Are you brave enough to go through Statesville Haunted Prison?
