Winner – Seeds of Extinction
2018's scariest house scares on two different levels. The first is practical: The house takes place after a meteor impact drives humans extinct and predatory plants reign supreme. In this unfamiliar environment, how do you know what's dangerous and what isn't? Some plants are just pretty decorations, while others are flesh-hungry carnivores in disguise. Without the usual cues, visitors are left totally vulnerable to their surroundings.
The other scare factor is existential. Among the overgrown remains of convenience stores, nursery schools, and even an airplane, the house makes it abundantly clear that humans aren't in charge of Earth anymore. And how much mercy can people really expect on a post-people Earth?
