Ghoulish Attraction Spooks Paris

Le Manoir de Paris

Halloween has come and gone but the haunting horrors remain in Paris with opening of the Le Manoir de Paris attraction in the rue de Paradis. Featuring a fearful assortment of ghastly ghouls and shocking scares, the attraction is a fantastic feature of the macabre.

Strolling down the delightfully named but rather shabby rue de Paradis, I see an old wench sweeping the pavement and making ghastly, ghoulish faces and noises at passers-by.

On closer inspection, she's not very old at all. The masses of make-up on her face, including a congealed blood-like liquid smeared around her eyes and cheeks, obscure the fact that she's probably only in her 20s.

As she shakes her broomstick and generally conveys the impression of being barking mad, a tall, gangly man in a suit and cravat, similarly caked in make-up, stumbles out of an archway. He comes within millimetres of my face and croaks a sound like one of the orcs from The Lord of the Rings - prompting me to recoil and my companion, Diana, to clutch my arm.
