Thousand Oaks, Calif. (January 23, 2015) – Janss Marketplace, located on the northwest corner of Moorpark Road and Hillcrest Drive in Thousand Oaks invites the public to a scary event that will also tug at heartstrings. The annual Reign of Terror will open for just one night in February on Friday the 13 for a young father who is battling cancer.

Tom Hood, a husband and father with four young daughters (ages 5-8) is a longtime supporter of the annual Janss Marketplace Reign of Terror haunted house, which raises money through ticket sales for Conejo Valley youth community programs. Tom, who is 35 years old and the sole financial provider for his family, was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.


The one night Reign of Terror on February 13 is opportunity for the community to help Tom Hood and his young family. Janss Marketplace invites the public to support the Friday the 13th Reign of Terror, with 100% of ticket sales donated toward paying for Tom Hood’s mounting medical expenses.

General admission tickets are $10 and VIP tickets, which offer reduced wait time in line, are $25. The ticket box office opens at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, February 13. Additional donations are welcome at the Tom Hood website:

and can be given at the February 13 Reign of Terror.

Volunteers who work at the October Reign of Terror are returning to help at the haunted house on February 13 to support their friend, Tom Hood. The 70 room Reign of Terror is located above Gold’s Gym at Janss Marketplace. Sunset Terrace Restaurant at Janss Marketplace will also donate portions of dining proceeds to Tom Hood’s fund.

February 13 is the ONLY date the Janss Marketplace Reign of Terror will be open before its annual Halloween dates. The walk-thru themed haunted house features elaborate sets, props, lighting and sound effects which combine live actors with animatronics to create realistic and intense frights.
