Friday the 13th. Just hearing the date can send a chill down your back. To many, it's the unluckiest day of the year.

If you want to test your odds, head out to Talladega Frights for their Friday the 13th Haunted House.

Remember that being chased by Freddy Krueger or Leatherface is just part of the fun on the spooky night.

"We decided to go after slasher characters so people can expect to see their favorite horror movie characters," Mike Wilbur, co-owner of Talladega Frights, said Thursday on "First Look with Scott Cox."

Each fright event is based on stories the folks at Talladega Frights create. The scarier and more horrifying, the better.

But if you'd rather skip an adrenaline rush and a fast-beating heart, you can dance the night away at the DJ Dance Party.

"We have a 100-foot water slide that slides into a pool," said Dana Martin, co-owner of Talladega Frights.

There will also be food and a rock wall of terror. Don't be surprised if you see a couple of horror movie characters sliding down the water slide or busting dance moves.

The Friday the 13th event will be the last of the season, before the famous Halloween event.

So what will make this event special?

"We always try to take people out of their reality," Wilbur said. "Something they won't see in Bakersfield to make their nightmares come true."

The spooky event starts at 8 p.m. both June 13 and 14 at the Kern County Museum. Tickets are $20 at the gate.
