In honor of House of Shock's final year in production, Curbed NOLA is celebrating the innovative haunted house that's spawned and inspired so many others in Louisiana with a behind-the-scenes look at what makes it great through the eyes of its performers. Our exclusive tour of the horror show takes you even farther than a VIP pass — up to the balconies of the haunted mock French Quarter and atop a satanic alter — and has us aching to go back. After the jump, our photos of one final night at the House of Shock. Be on lookout for Part Two of our tribute tomorrow, featuring an interview with co-founder Ross Karpelman. We salute you, House of Shock.
