BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — As if a haunted asylum with bloody patients, crazy doctors and a morgue full of body parts isn't enough to bring in the profits for a police department fundraiser, throw in a visit from horror flick director John Carpenter.

Carpenter stopped by the Warren County Asylum haunted house in his hometown Thursday to sign autographs.

He told the Daily News it's a good day when he can scare people for a good cause.

The haunted house is put on by Cancer Cops, which is a Relay for Life team from the Bowling Green Police Department. Team member Jen Edwards said Carpenter's appearance nearly doubled the take from the previous weeks as proceeds totaled about $3,100.

Carpenter's "Halloween" movies reference the area, mentioning street names and nearby towns.
