Haunted House season is coming up fast. While scanning the internet for fun and frightful destinations, I came across this story shared by Rebecca Flores with KVUE.

What if you could stay overnight in one of Austin's most well-known haunts? The House of Torment has an opportunity for the bravest of the brave to spend the night inside and conduct a "real paranormal investigation" with some help from the pros.

House of Torment wants those who are interested in entering the contest to post a video on Instagram explaining why you want to be a part of the event. Use the tags #NightwatchChallenge and #HouseofTormentAustin in the caption of your post.
