Eric Stonestreet braves Ellen DeGeneres' haunted house with Andy Lassner

Clowns, a “choir of zombies,” and other terrors made it pretty difficult. They took turns pushing and shoving each other through the houses, and weren’t afraid to drop a few F-bombs at the creatures that got a little too close.
