Old Joliet Prison to become haunted house for Halloween this year

The backdrop for "The Blues Brothers" and FOX’s "Prison Break" will be home to the Chicago area's newest haunted house.

Haunted house operator "Evil Intentions" made the announcement on its website, saying it will open the doors to the prison this Halloween.

Joliet Prison dates back to the 1850's. It has sat empty for more than 15 years.

According to The Patch, the city of Joliet supports the project and city council could approve it as soon as next week.
