Vlad the Impaler

With a moniker like “the Impaler,” you know he wasn’t someone to hang around with. He is said to be the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. This is a pretty intense episode, not for little ones. I would guess this would be appropriate for age 13 and older, but parents should decide for themselves and their children. Comment on, and join us on our Facebook page and Twitter @HalloweenHaunt.

Should you not be too grossed out to want to learn more, Wikipedia has much more information. And it seems old Vlad has a bit of a fan club. Well, at least he has his own website. I wonder if he saw that coming?
