MANALAPAN – “Nightmare Before Christmas” has nothing on this Monmouth County home.
A Heather Drive house sparked a buzz on social media this month, with a self-billed “Killer Christmas” display in Manalapan, not far from Route 9.
Some of the Halloween-style props reused for the Christmas Tide decor include a giant skeleton Santa, spooky elves, Santa Claus with a reindeer vendetta, and a Brain Eating Bumble, among others.
There is also a Krampus – the mythical half-man, half-goat – who takes care of a child who behaves badly in a cage.

It’s bound to be a polarizing display, arousing joy among those who appreciate its unconventional nature.
For those who are less fond of their Christmas elves like “Chucky”, this might be a stopover for the family visit to the neighborhood decorations.
