Through Halloween, blood donors will receive a free VIP fast pass to The Mortuary when they give blood at the haunted house at 4800 Canal St., New Orleans. In addition, up to three paying guests may accompany the blood donor as he or she bypasses the wait at the ticket booth. The regular price for a VIP fast pass is $35.

All blood drives begin at 5:30 p.m. During eight years of seasonal blood drives at The Mortuary, The Blood Center has collected more than 4,600 points of blood.
