A gory garage door Halloween display in Tennessee had residents calling 911. The Greene County Sheriff's Department is now warning people that the display is fake.

The picture shows what appears to be a man, dressed in jeans and work boots, decapitated by a garage door. It also shows bloody handprints on the white garage door.

Sheriff's officials said that because they received so many calls reporting what neighbors thought was a gruesome death, they decided to post a message on the department's Facebook page telling people it was just Halloween decorations.

Greene County Sheriff's Office said instead of calling 911, people should congratulate the homeowner on a great display.
