Nashville Haunts: the top 2018 Halloween attractions

Lumination sent out three daring staffers to brave Nashville’s top haunted attractions. Here’s what they found: Nashville Nightmare Reviewed by Lumination staffer Kailey Schuyler 1016 Madison Square, Madison, TN 37115 info@nashvillenightmare.com Price: $24.99, but subject to change Scare-O-Meter: ★★ One sentence summary: Some of my group was laughing, and some were screaming. I follow this by saying there are four different houses you can go through, and I went through two of the houses. I walked through “Fairy Tale Hell” and “Industrial Undead.” The scariest part of the whole experience was the walk to wait in line. My group was constantly being followed by characters that loved to torment the scared. Some of the characters had chainsaws, some were repulsive and had blood dripping out of their mouth and would try to get you to taste it, and some were sliding around on the ground and would sneak up behind you screaming. Once we were inside the house, there were a lot of big breaks where there was nobody hiding to scare the visitors — there were too many scary props, and not enough scary actors. I typically can get pretty jumpy in haunted houses, and I was never scared to the point where I screamed or jumped. Nothing stood out to me in the two houses I walked through that other haunted houses don’t have to offer. I did enjoy my experience and everyone in my group had fun. We wanted to go through the other houses, but the lines were too long for us to justify waiting. Overall, the two specific houses I went through are perfect...

BREAKING: Trump cabinet member to speak at Lipscomb Thursday; ‘community gathering’ planned by DSC

A high-ranking member of U.S. President Donald Trumps’s cabinet is set to visit Lipscomb this week. Alex M. Azar II, who was sworn in as Secretary of Health and Human Services on Jan. 29, 2018, will be the keynote speaker at a special Nashville Health Care Council event on Thursday at Shamblin Theater. The member-only event begins at 11 a.m. CT and is closed to the general public and University students, but it will be available via live stream. To make room for the event in the Shamblin, MASK Chapel, which celebrates diversity and inclusion, was cancelled this week. In Lumination’s original article, the word “protest” was used by those Lumination had previously contacted and who are planning to attend the event tomorrow, yet who are not DSC representatives. Originally, the DSC’s president, Leslie Garcia, was not available for comment, but she recently confirmed with Lumination that the DSC’s intent is not a “protest” of any kind, but rather a “community gathering.” “We are gathering and standing in solidarity with those who feel unsafe because of the presence of tomorrow’s speaker,” Garcia said. The Diverse Student Coalition has organized the gathering in Zebi’s Lounge from 10:40 – 11:40 a.m. The coalition is encouraging students to wear black to show support for students who feel unsafe by his presence. The DSC put forth a statement confirming the “gathering”: “[Azar’s] presence on this campus is a threat to our students of Latin descent, to our DACA students, to our students of color, to our students of Central and Latin American descent, and to our immigrant and refugee students . . . This is not...
