    Even though the yard is close to Dentzler Elementary School, a family has still installed this impeded body

    • Ohio family has display in yard near Dentzler Elementary School in Parma
    • The gruesome decorations also include an upside down body on a cross
    • Social media users are weighing in on decorations and opinions are split
    Halloween is a time when many people walk on the wild side, but one family may have gone too far.

    They have created controversy by placing a number of gruesome decorations in their front yard, which also happens to be a few blocks away from an elementary school in Parma, Ohio.

    Even though Halloween is more than three weeks away, the yard already contains a cocooned corpse hanging from a tree, a body impaled on a stake and a cadaver upside down on a cross.

    Although some have have said the horrific decor is too much for Halloween, others maintain that the family is just having fun and their decorations are appropriate, according to Cleveland 19.

    Social media users took to Twitter to weigh in on the issue.

    One man said: 'They are fine

    'It's Halloween have a little fun with it people need to get a backbone for gosh sakes #3Halloween.'

    Another gentleman said: 'They are decorations.

    'That's it! People need to get a life and not blow everything out of proportion.'

    Others did not agree and said the decorations went 'too far' and they were not fans of the family.

    People have complained to the city about the display, but Parma officials said there is nothing they can do because the family has a right to freedom of expression, Local 12 reported.

    Vicki Barrett and her husband may 'tone it down' if they find out that children are being frightened.

    Then again, they might not.

    She said: 'We don't want to scare kids.

    'We just want to do the Halloween fun of it and, you know, but definitely no ill intent, no.'

    Meanwhile in Detroit, a woman who has been decorating her home the same way for 25 years has created a bit of controversy of her own because of what's in her yard.

    LaRethia Haddon puts a stuffed body in her front yard that attracts attention each year because it looks so lifelike, according to the Detroit News.

    The body has drawn the attention of passers-by, emergency workers and even police.

    Haddon said: 'The corner is always full of cars.

    'People running up trying to do CPR. Once they find out it's a dummy, it's so hilarious.'

    She started putting out the face down body in honor of her husband's birthday on Halloween.

    It has drawn so much attention that Haddon has started taking the corpse in after sundown.

    Haddon said: 'If you don't bring him in at night, he won't be there in the morning.

    'I learned my lesson. I have to bring him in at night.

    'But on Halloween, he stays out all night. I just keep my door open until we go to bed.'

    Another Halloween-related prank went awry when a Colorado girl who showed up at her school wearing a trench coat and a gas mask prompted the institution to shut down, KKTV reported.


    The girl caused Pueblo County High School to shut down for two hours and she was suspended.

    She was not armed and told authorities that it was 'nothing more than a Halloween prank'.

    I thinks it is fine. Society has become so desensitized to things that were considered shocking years ago.

    Near where I used to live there was a big trailer park and a guy hung a fake body in a noose out all year in front of his house to show what he would do to trespassers.

    I'm honestly surprised it wasn't this one horrible girl I knew in grade school; she's the type of person who would do something like that. Thank God I'm not forced to hang around her anymore.
