      ATLANTA (AP) - An Atlanta neighborhood and shopping complex aims to put a frightening new twist on the idea of a traditional haunted house this Halloween.

      Atlantic Station officials say they're planning to use large shipping containers like those used on trains for the attraction. "Containment" is set to run Oct. 4 through Nov. 3 at the complex just north of downtown Atlanta.

      The attraction is based on a story line involving demonic artifacts being transported by train through Atlanta as part of a convoy of secured cargo containers. The train derailed, as the story goes, causing the containers to crash onto the Atlantic Station property. A series of unexplained incidents, disturbing behavior and mysterious disappearances followed.
