Halloween displays scare people away
ROSCOE VILLAGE, Ohio (AP) -- A central Ohio woman's Halloween lawn display is so foreboding, neighborhood trick-or-treaters often are scared to walk up the driveway.
Shelly Lillibridge spends weeks planning and setting up her extensive collection of spooky adornments in her yard and throughout her home in Roscoe Village, about 80 miles northeast of Columbus.
The collection began about 10 years ago, and she bought progressively scarier items as her children got older, Lillibridge said. She now has everything from grim reaper headstones to a life-sized Dracula dummy.
When it comes to Halloween, you can never have too much or be too scared, Lillibridge said.
"I just love Halloween. I always have," she said. "I like scary movies and the element of surprise and the creepiness. I have very fond memories of trick-or-treating as a child."
