There was the creepy Halloween room, the very scary basement, the eerie attic, and all those gape-mouthed gargoyles. Oh yeah, and all that blood! And did I say that the kids got trapped in a mile-long heating system? Did I say ONE little problem? How about LOTS of BIG problems! Everyone loves Biltmore House!
