Gruesome Halloween Display Has Neighborhood Kids Running Scared

When it comes to decorating for Halloween there's a fine line between suitably scary and downright disturbing, and sometimes we Halloweenies have to reel in our morbid imaginations a bit so we don't scare off all the trick-or-treaters.

But, as the Barrett household in Parma, Ohio discovered, you should use even more discretion when you live a block away from an elementary school or prepare to incur parental wrath.

Kids and parents alike feel that the decorations, which include an impaled body, a body wrapped in plastic hanging from a tree and a figure crucified upside down, are too disturbingly realistic to have up around children.

The decorations seem perfect for a haunted house or an area with fewer kids, but a display that gruesome is guaranteed to keep kids from trick-or-treating at their house of horrors, and where's the fun in that?!
