Falcone Conjures Ghoulish Halloween Display

Nov 3 2014 | 10:01am ET

As far as neighbors are concerned, Philip Falcone and his wife got a little too deeply into the Halloween spirit.

Fellow denizens of New York’s Upper East Side were none-too-pleased with the couple’s holiday decorative scheme, described by the New York Post as “gory” and “macabre.”

“Other mansions on the street are decorated, but the Falcone’s grasp of horror is at another level,” one local told the tabloid.

The Falcone’s East 67th Street home was graced by a smoke-spewing gargoyle and a possessed child swinging on a sign that reads, “Cemetery.” It also featured a howling witch and a “dwarfish crone” holding a dead baby, surrounded by fake rats and dismembered limbs and bones. To top it off, a grim reaper beheads a corpse; a black hearse parked in front of the house appears ready to take away the body.

“I guess the display is working if it’s scaring people,” Falcone told the Post.
