Dead bodies Halloween display

Johnnie Mullins

An Oklahoma family's Halloween decorations are turning heads -- but for the wrong reasons.

The gory scene at the Mullins' home in Mustang includes a man who appears to have been run over by a truck and another bloody body whose head appears to have been smashed by the garage door.

Jennifer Mullins, 32, told The Associated Press she got the ideas from Pinterest.

But the gore has drawn criticism and even concern, with one woman calling 911 to report the body under the garage door.

"I was just driving by and it looked like his head was closed in the garage door," the caller told dispatchers.

Mullins told the AP she's been surprised by how much attention the decor has received.

"People think we went too far, and you know, we're devil worshippers and we must not be Christian folk," she said. "They've said all kinds of stuff. But we're normal. We love Jesus. We celebrate Halloween."
