Congratulations to Jeff "Fluffy" Walker, Winner of HauntedHouseChicago.com's Jim Warfield Acting Award 2016

Each year, HauntedHouseChicago.com awards the top actor/actress from that calendar year. The award is named after Jim Warfield of Raven’s Grin Inn. For more on this award please click here.

This year, there was one actor that dazzled us with his show and blew us away with his showstopping performance. Some may view him as somewhat of a celebrity at his attraction, others like to call him a friend and bring him gifts.

Haunted House Chicago would like to formally congratulate the recipient of the 2016 Jim Warfield Acting Award: Jeff Walker as “Fluffy” from Statesville Haunted Prison in Crest Hill, IL!

Watch as the crew guts entire sections of both Statesville and City of the Dead so they can make things better and, of course, SCARIER for 2016!
