In the spirit of Halloween, we’re looking back at photos from 1947 — not from a haunted house, per se, but a serious theatrical enterprise that put on gruesome, fake-blood-splattered shows year-round for decades. See for yourself here.
Caption from LIFE: “Realistic throat-cutting performed in The Hussy by honest farm lad on his depraved, scheming wife, is achieved by a trick dagger which contains ‘blood’ in handle.”
