Spooky in Santee

Posted: Updated:

SANTEE (CBS 8) - Halloween decorations are popping up all over San Diego, and it seems there's always one house in every neighborhood where folks really get into spooking up their property. Larry Himmel has more from a Santee home that has been transformed into an amazing maze of mayhem.

Welcome to Paul Koester's handcrafted haunting. This nightmare on Ramo Road has been under construction since September.

"Most people don't know that I make all this stuff. They think I go out and buy it, but I've never seen anything like this in the store, yet," he said.

Chandeliers hang in the driveway, skulls litter the front porch and old costumes become props in this demented gathering of ghouls.

"People slow down all the time, just stop, they take pictures and they ask questions," Paul said.

Paul's wife doesn't mind all this madness.

"As long as there's no gore in the house, I'm OK with it," she said.

Inside the Koester casa, they do have a tightly-wrapped relative.

"That guy I made this year, so that's another new piece that I've got to find a home for," Paul said.

The Koesters are still putting the finishing strokes on their inner sanctum.

"It stays up a couple of weeks (after Halloween), until I get tired of it. Then it all comes down piece by piece.

Until then, the denizens of this demonic domicile will get no peace.
