Coastal city horror show

Even by daylight, Portland’s Victoria Mansion is spooky, perhaps even a bit creepy, given its lived-in appearance without life. Cue the spooky music. On Oct. 18, the mansion opens its creaky doors for Tales of Terror.

Brave visitors begin with a mansion tour. Not just any tour, mind you. For this one, the mansion is dimming its gas chandeliers and lights, insuring eerie shadows on the walls and spooky darkness in the nooks and crannies.

Once the skin is prickly, settle in for a hair-raising experience as Portland storyteller Lynne Cullen reads two masterpieces of horror: Edgar Allan Poe’s The Telltale Hart and J. Sheridan Le Fanu’s Green Tea. Egad!

Two 1.5-hour programs are scheduled, the first beginning at 6 p.m., the second at 8 p.m. Advance reservations are required. If you dare. Bwaahahahaha.
