Halloween is a couple weeks away which means a crowd favorite is back at Fort Knox.

Fright at the Fort returns for its 19th year on Saturday, with a twist.

We went behind the scenes to give you a sneak peek of all the terror.

"We'll have elements that you will remember and new stuff as well," said Friends of Fort Knox Director, Dean Martin.

Fright at the Fort is back.

The annual Halloween season spectacular returns for its 19th year. Inside the walls, visitors will be guided up and down the shadowy, fog-filled rooms, and along the creepy corridors.

Each room of terror is filled with scenes from some of your favorite Stephen King stories, but you're going to have to come to the Fort to really experience them all.

"This year we are doing nine to twelve different stories based on Stephen King's movies and books," said Martin.

And without the dozens of volunteers putting in countless hours, none of this would be possible.

"Quite a few times during the Fright season, I have closed up by myself, but you never feel like you're really alone here anyway," said

"We can't necessarily recreate the exact experience you would get at a movie, but we hope that you will be able to identify for those true fans of Stephen King, they'll know which ones we are trying to get after," explained Martin.

Organizers say they are anxious to see if visitors will be able to keep calm and "Carrie" on, or will "It" be too chilling for those faint at heart?

"Fort lends itself to scariness all by itself," said Martin. "You don't even need scary props. If you were to come here during the day, it's scary. At night it's scary. At night with people trying to scare you, it's four times as scary as anything you've ever done before."

Fright at the Fort starts Saturday and runs from 5:30-9:00 p.m. The event is rain or shine.
