Husband and Wife, Byron and Marie Butler reside in Pinckney, MI.

Byron was born and raised in South Carolina and Marie has lived in Livingston County most of her life.

The two met through a mutual friend who moved from MI to SC.

The first year that they knew each other they never met and only spoke on the phone. They started dating in 2008. Byron was in the program to be a Paramedic in SC and Marie was going to college to become a graphic designer in MI and so for 4 years they did long distance.

In 2012 Byron moved to MI and they were married.

Although both love the fall, Marie is the Halloween Fan of the two and has always had an interest and love for all things Halloween since she was a little girl. As a young girl her mom would make her costumes and do her makeup each year to enjoy the night out trick or treating, as she got older, Marie would scare people on her parents porch and attend every haunted house she could.

In 2014 Marie got involved in working in Haunted houses. She learned a lot of behind the scenes, not only with acting but also with the many hours, days and months of volunteer time she did helping build sets for the attraction.

In 2015 Marie was given the opportunity by Dean and Cindy Broadbent to turn one of their small “huts” in the forest into, Frankenstein’s Laboratory. Which is still part of the show to this day!

Marie continued with venturing and helping out at different Haunted Attractions and learning and helping all she could.

Each year she attends multiple Halloween conventions and events, taking seminars, doing makeups and getting incite on the, “what’s new”.

Marie also does special effects makeup with air brush and body paint. You can follow her on different Social Media Platforms to see her new Makeups she does on herself and others.

Marie’s Husband, Byron has always been super supportive of Marie’s Halloween passion and has always encouraged her to follow her dream. The dream being to own and operate her very own Haunted Attraction.
