MANSFIELD, Ohio — Mariah Carey’s song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” might be playing in some stores already, but there are people still enjoying the spooky season, including Tom Holland and Joe Russo.

Anthony and Joe Russo are shooting their film “Cherry,” in Cleveland, but Joe took a break Saturday night to visit Blood Prison, a haunted house in Mansfield. He was accompanied by Holland and Ciara Bravo, who are both stars of the film.

Blood Prison, located at the Ohio State Reformatory, is Ohio's only haunted house set in a real prison. Blood Prison isn't your typical haunted house. Visitors can pay a small fee for a "touch pass" that ups the fear factor by allowing the inmates and clowns hidden inside to grab, shake and startle you.

Russo, Holland and Bravo were joined by other members of the film crew on their trip to the Mansfield haunted house.

“Cherry” is based on a true story of a former army medic who struggles with opioid addiction after serving in Iraq, and his subsequent time he spent as a bank robber to support his drug addiction. It stars Bravo, who got her start on "Big Time Rush," Bill Skarsgård from the "IT" movies and Holland, who got his start to fame in “Spider-Man."

The Russo brothers will be in Cleveland shooting their film through Dec. 10.
