TUCSON, Ariz. - Are haunted houses real, or are they just meant to scare the living?
There's one haunted house in Tucson that begs the question, and it's the subject of this week's Paranormal Pueblo -- The Slaughterhouse.
The Slaughterhouse is filled with murderous clowns, cannibal butchers and other creatures that go bump in the night -- but they're only actors in costumes. The real haunts begins when the lights go out.
KGUN 9 went on a paranormal investigation with two members of The Tucson Ghost Company, using tools to hear and see what lurks in the dark.
Becky and Will Gydesen have been to the Slaughterhouse a few times to hunt for ghosts, and they say they've had experiences every time.
Will says something he couldn't see once tugged on his jacked at the Slaughterhouse, and Becky says the same thing happened to her.
"I was in this room before and you pulled on my sweatshirt, and this is also the room that you came up to my recorder and you yelled "Boo" in," she said during the investigation.
In another spot, where actor "zombies" usually roam, the crew heard unexplained noises.
During business hours, several employees told us about their own experiences with the paranormal, including doors slamming, rotten smells and sounds of footsteps -- something we experienced for ourselves.
So is the Slaughterhouse the only truly haunted house in Tucson? Becky and the employees say yes.
Watch the full video above to see what happened on KGUN 9's experience at the Slaughterhouse with the Tucson Ghost Company.
