The best haunted houses in Brooklyn!

Spooky sounds: Tiny terrors will perform at the Brooklyn Music School’s sixth annual “Musical Haunted House” on Oct. 28.

The Brooklyn housing market is always scary, but at Halloween, the haunted houses become terrifying! Here are three homes haunted by spirits that you can visit during the spooky season.

Final rest

Check in to a cursed and condemned hotel Downtown, almost fully occupied with spooks and spectres! The New York City College of Technology will host its 20th annual high-tech haunted house “The Gravesend Inn,” inside the Voorhees Theater for the two weeks before Halloween. This year’s creepy adventure will feature the spirits of departed Native American women, returning with a terrifying message! The show is low on blood, but not appropriate for those younger than age 10.

The Gravesend Inn at the Voorhees Theater, New York City College of Technology (186 Jay St. at High Street Downtown, www.citytechtheatreworks.org/gravesendinn). Oct. 19–20 and Oct. 25–31 at various times. $10 ($5 students).

Boys in boo!

New York’s Scariest will provide the thrills at a subterranean haunted house located beneath the 78th Precinct Station House. Police officers will lead brave locals on a tour of the haunted house, which will be filled with creepy statues, costumed cops, and ghoulish gizmos.

Haunted House at the 78th Precinct station house [65 Sixth Ave. between Dean and Bergen streets in Prospect Heights, (718) 636–6411]. Oct. 26–30, 4–9 pm. Free.

You have been warned: Check in to the cursed “Gravesend Inn” Downtown, hosted by the The New York City College of Technology, running from Oct. 19 until Halloween.

What a trill!

Just before Halloween, check out the borough’s most spooktacular musical performances, in the creepy confines of the Brooklyn Music School, whose staff and students have not only scared little kids at this event for six years, but schooled them as well, said its executive director.

“The Brooklyn Music School has been around for 109 years, it’s kind of a spooky glimpse into who we are and what we do,” said Piruz Partow. “You won’t just get a little scared but also may be able to learn something, be able to try the different instruments.”

On Oct. 28, brave adults and kids can “schtick-or-treat” through four floors of the Fort Greene building, where Halloween-inspired tribute bands, including “Scary Garcia,” “The Hateful Dead,” and “Radiodead” will perform for the guests. Visitors can also wander through classrooms decked out with a monster mash-up of Halloween and musical themes, including rooms for Zombeethoven, Glenn Ghoul, and A Knife at the Opera.

Musical Haunted House at the Brooklyn Music School (126 Saint Felix St. between Lafayette Avenue and Hanson Place in Fort Greene, www.brooklynmusicschool.org). Oct. 28 at 3 pm and 4 pm. $10 ($8 in advance).
