Haunted houses strike again as Halloween quickly approaches. The infamous Netherworld and spooky corn mazes are sure to ignite the fright, but if you're spent with the same old masks and chainsaws, you can opt for something different. When it comes to things to do for Halloween in Atlanta, there's a unique experience coming next month called Cursed and it involves a legitimately doomed box full of creepy heirlooms.\nEditor's Choice: Ottawa's Top Doc Says She Needs A Break After Showing Up At Work With No Pants\n\n View this post on Instagram Baaaaybeee face.
