Things got freaky at Owl’s Head Park on Halloween.
Volunteers and local businesses transformed the Bay Ridge park into a house of horrors for the 19th-annual Haunted Walk on Oct. 31.
The massive outdoor haunted house had it all — hatchet-wielding maniacs, disembodied limbs, and of course — lots of fake blood. One thrill-seeker said the walk wasn’t too frightening, but he did get wrapped up in the atmosphere.
“I wasn’t really scared — I was just being dramatic, because it was kind of creepy, and people were popping out of nowhere,” said Tyler Roman after a few of his chums suggested the walk spooked him.
One actor in the walk said a lot more went into the performances than just yelling “Boo!”
“I planned out each little skit in my mind,” said Regina Levy, a ninth-grader at Adelphi Academy who dressed as Little Red Riding Hood and offered a chalice of fake blood to walkers.
The Shore Road Parks Conservancy, the Community Emergency Response Team, and a horde of volunteers put on the walk, which took days to set up. There was also a Fairy Tale forest for younger kids, as well as costume contests, a pumpkin patch, and “Dracula’s Food Court.”
Levy, who is a budding actress, said the volunteer gig was fun practice for her theatrical craft.
“There was a costume tent and makeup artists — it was a nice hands-on experience,” she said.
