Man transforms his entire bungalow into a terrifying house of horrors for Hallowe'en

These gory pictures show the terrifying transformation of an entire bungalow into a terrifying house of horrors for Hallowe'en.

Granddad Rod Dawson, 55, has spent a small fortune to make his home as frightening as possible.

He spent weeks planning and building his haunted house that is now full of witches, clowns and zombies.

And he has even secured around ten ghoulish volunteers to torment unsuspecting visitors.

Outside features just a few skeletons - but this gives a false sense of the scale of what he has created to chill visitors when they enter his home.

Each room has a different theme, but despite sourcing everything second hand Rod admits it's not cheap - and he has spent in excess of £13,000 this year.

Guests are initially welcomed into the property in St Austell, Cornwall, by walking through a pitch-black hall where a projection shows a ghoul mounted to the wall.

Skeletons hang from the ceiling and there are several skulls on display before visitors are welcomed to a "butcher's quarter." Here they are faced with the gruesome sight of heads and limbs hanging bloody from the ceiling, while the butcher himself appears with a pig's mask with blood covering his body and wields a machete.

The alien room features a dead alien laying on a surgical table with flies coming out of his mouth.

Next up a young woman dangles across the bed resembling a scene from the exorcist whilst a girl takes the role of Annabel as she rocks a monster baby in a cot.

Witches and wizards take you to a new room featuring a projection with further haunting characters taunting guests.

There is also a room transformed into the pirate's lair featuring dead shipmates, rats and skulls.

Freddy Kruger awaits beyond this lair and swipes his claws at those daring to enter.

Rod said he has been fully committed to the project and said his theme is based around anything can happen for Hallowe'en.

Despite all the effort he goes to, Rod says he doesn't make a penny back from visitors - and gives all donations away.

He said: "After a while people started asking where they are supposed to put donations so we are raising money for Cornwall Air Ambulance." Friends transform the entire home using only second hand items from charity shops "We do it because it's a lot of fun and a lot of screams - we just do it for the fun of it really," Rod added.

"This year we are starting at the bottom of our lane and we have a theme in each room of our house.

There will be a circus room, witches room, bats and ghouls.

"There is a room full of gravestones.

We have loads of animatronics and smoke.

There is also a pirate room.

"We don't have things or people that jump out, they just move slightly.

"Last year we had costumes that we stuffed and this year people will be in them, there will be ten of us hiding around the house this time." Rod added: "We used to have to inform the police and the bus companies so they knew there might be some congestion - thousands of people would turn up.

"We started building things and putting it together three weeks ago and now we are trying to ramp it up a bit and do some more.

"Last year the storm blew away one of the tents so we are making sure it is all secure this year.

"Over the past few years people have been scared of clowns with the killer clown craze, so that's where the idea for the circus room came from.

"I don't actually like horror films so that's not where I've gotten my ideas from.

I guess it just comes from my imagination.

"We also have lots of projections of holograms around the house.

"A friend gave us lots of stuff from America last year but in total we spent around £13,000 - it's like Christmas.

We do make a lot of it ourselves.

"We've got some mannequins this year." Rod said his house of horrors is "too frightening" for young children.

He added: "My wife and my lad help me with the decorations.

I put little snippets on Facebook before we hold our open house.

"One of my grandchildren was actually born on October 31 - so they ended up thinking the decorations and visitors were in their honour."
