Most impressive was the Hell Mouth, as Dr. Robert Hansen writes:
“Even more startling was the design and decoration of the entrance to Hell, which is often depicted as the expansive jaws of a gruesome monster spitting forth devils and sucking in sinners. Stage machinists took tremendous delight in creating terrifying depictions of Hell. They used fire works, realistic scenes of torture, and frightening sound effects to imaginatively suggest the mayhem, chaos, and suffering of Hell in spectacularly realistic ways. The medieval Hell Mouth is the forerunner of every "House of Horrors" (or similarly scary attraction) that can be found at modern fairs and carnivals.”
