Most scary Halloween displays are done in the name of good fun, but there is nothing more scary than tragedy.
One local church has taken a family’s real-life tragedy and turned it into a fear driven lesson on life choices.
Christ Temple Church has held their Judgment House play all week.
It's based around the life of Kristen Stiltner, the daughter of a former Wayne County mayor.
She was killed in a car crash back in May of 2011.
She was “saved” at a previous Judgment House before her death.
This year's message, you never know when life can be taken away.
“You never know what the day holds for you, so as you go through the dramatization,” Tracy Stiltner, Kristien’s mom, said. “Take it to heart. It’s not a story about a tragic car accident. It’s about choices you make. You never know what’s going to happen when you wake up each day."
Organizers said its been a major success. More than 4,000 people have made their way through this year's Judgment House.
