A piece of the wildly popular AMC show, The Walking Dead, can be found within the four walls of the Lake House Hotel. Christopher Weite, a well known actor in Hotel of Horror and Altered Nightmares, was on two episodes of the show last season as a walker. While you won’t find him in the Lake House as a walker, he does portray a few different characters in the dual haunted attraction this season.

For Christopher, transforming into a zombie is second nature. His acting resume is a long list of horror and zombie movies, as well as commercials, independent films, print and more. He is also listed as one of the top 40 walkers on The Walking Dead, according to IMDb.

His time on TWD set was fast paced and exciting. He was able to utilize his zombie knowledge and experience to create a walker that would be seen front and center in an episode that featured the governor. He also got a second chance to become a walker in another episode later in season four. It’s his hope to be able to repeat the whole process again in the near future, as well as to audition for some bigger roles on the show and the upcoming spin-off.

While we won’t tell you what character Christopher will be any given night at Hotel of Horror/Altered Nightmares, just know he’s there and watching for his chance to collect your screams. He walks the halls of the Lake House every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through November 1. You can catch Christopher’s episode of TWD during the marathon leading up to the new season that begins tomorrow night at 9 p.m.  And be sure to “like” his Facebook fan page for up-to-date information, photos and links to past and future projects.

Ghosts like to party too! So why not have your party at the Lake House Hotel this haunt season? We won’t even charge you for your “invisible guests.”

Having your party at our location will make you one of the cool kids; or should I say ghoul kids? This is new for us this year so be one of the first to party inside our creepy walls. The party room includes the original Lake House Hotel bar area and adjacent party room, and is available on Saturdays and Sundays from September 26 through November 1. Parties start at 4 p.m. and end at 6 p.m. Then head outside for some tailgate fun until the doors open (and trust me, you’ll need that hour to put your big girl panties on and find some bravery to get yourself into the wait line.) Then the best part of the party happens – the screams and terror inside Hotel of Horror and Altered Nightmares.

The small print: Must have a minimum of 12 people, maximum of 20. You do the set up and tear down of the party room and bring your own snacks, cake and drinks. Alcohol is NOT allowed. Characters are available for an additional fee. The cost for this amazing party opportunity is $40 per person and that includes a combo ticket for Hotel of Horror and Altered Nightmares for each guest.

The chainsaw revving up is a sound you’ll hear a lot when you visit the Lake House. If you stick around long enough to catch a glimpse of the chainsaw, you might see the blood stains on the tip of the blade. And Archer Watts, the chainsaw operator, wants you to stick around.

Life in Saylorsburg in the 1960s was rough. Archer was a hard working miner, but all that hard work only led to a few dollars in his pocket each day. Barely able to feed his family led Archer into a deep, dark depression, so he decided the best thing to do was to end his wife and daughters’ misery. His own misery made him feel it was best to save them from the pain of the cruel world they were living in. So late one night when Archer felt even more despair then ever, he suffocated the three most important ladies in his life with their pillows while they slept. In an effort to conceal what he had done, he used a chainsaw to dismember their bodies. He tossed their remains into the back of his 1947 Ford Model A. After having a few too many drinks, Archer proceeded to drive the family car into a large oak tree on the side of the road. Reports say that when help arrived, there was no driver in the vehicle. The only thing left behind were the remnants of the Watts family and the stench of despair.

Archer lies low these days, but on occasion, normally in the fall when the days grow shorter and the night grow colder, he comes to town to drink away his pain. Given his past history and dark moods, he has no problem taking care of anyone who crosses his path. So when you see him at the Lake House, steer clear of him. You’ll know Archer is near by the sound of his chainsaw.
