This will get you in the mood for Halloween.

We get a little Halloween-obsessed here at Washingtonian. And why not? With enough real frights in life, what’s better than indulging in the fake kind? We plan to bring you as many Halloween-related stories as possible over the next couple of weeks. But for now, let us take you back to Markoff’s Haunted Forest, outside Poolesville, Maryland, which we wrote about last week. Now we give you the video experience. Washingtonian videographer Melissa Romero visited Markoff’s on opening night to record what it’s like to walk their spooky trails. Romero said, “I just scared myself and jumped out of my seat while editing this haunted video.” You’ll see why.
