Next time you see something that looks like it might be a scene straight out of a horror flick, check your calendar.
One long-time resident of Greene County, Tennessee got an upsetting visual as he drove by a home that had what looked like a guy stuck under a blood splattered garage door. But it was just an innocent prank, courtesy of Joseph Lovergive, who realized the extent of his life-like Halloween display after he got a visit from a few Sheriff’s deputies responding to a terrified neighbor who called 9-1-1.
“I thought it was somebody laying up there on the driveway,” Johnny Riddle (oh, the irony) told WJHL News.
That body in the driveway isn’t really a decapitated dude, it’s clothing stuffed with paper. But from afar, it looks like the real thing. “When the police came, they pulled the boot off to make sure it wasn’t a real person,” Lovergive told WJHL, revealing the blood was a combination of food coloring and hair gel.
And, yes, he started early with his decorations, but only because he was staging his home for a party. Riddle says he’s relieved, but you can tell, is still kind of pissed over the whole thing, if not just completely irritated. Watch the interview here.
