    Hi SwampCorpser - welcome. I really like your swamp corpse - very creepy. Where in Wales do you live?

    John Carpenter's The Thing A shapeshifting alien that can imitate any life form has been frozen in the Antarctic ice for 100,000 years. It thaws and tries to assimilate a 12-member team at a research base, presumably in hopes of eventually doing the same with the world's population. This 1982 film is considered to be a remake of the 1951 classic. It is not based on the earlier movie but rather on the original novella, Who Goes There? I like both movies but in different ways.

    If you never have a "Fail', then you must not be doing anything. I have many of them. My fails often involved welding steel together and trying to make something from too heavy material which defeats most of the intended purpose. Some would marvel over the crashed space ship on the roof of the cupola. I would often defuse their compliment (and go for a laugh) by telling them:"You would have much more impressed by the D-9 Cat I almost had put up there, but I lost my grip on it and if fell down...

    The Monster and horse have to wait till next year. The Tape ghost is toast I have to remake her for next year. I feel like it's all kind of lackluster compared to what i intended. :(

    I have so many little things that occupy my mind concerning the haunt....I have "Switches!" They have to be set in "certain" positions to begin the show here as I flip switches on and off as I push-pull controls co-ordinated with the sound and picture on the TV screen across the room. I have remote controls that have to be in certain tiny locations for sly-access for making certain mischievous undertakings inflicted upon my patrons. I have certain small items that have to wait for that...

    I wouldn't give up. Setting up the projectors wont take long at all. Throw some of your main decorations out front and you will be looking good!! You still have plenty of time.

    I helped Decorate two cars at a Trunk or treat for charity at a local Quaker Steak and Lube. The first car was a 69 Plymouth GTX. The theme was Roswell Aliens. Inspired by the Megadeth song and video Hanger 18 from the album Rust in Peace.

    I guess it's getting close enough with a week away to start the Weather thread. What are you expecting? We've got rain anticipated twice this week already according to our local TV news channel and I hate to look beyond this coming weekend yet. But I did and predicts rain Tues, Thurs, plus Friday, Sunday and of course on Monday.

    Thanx! I did, and I think they don't heat up at all, should be safe for the duration of the party :) I'll put up pictures later :)

    This week, I added a skull with glowing eyes mounted on the front of the Coffin Car. Used a $4 plastic skull from WalMart. Cut ping pong balls to fit over they eye sockets and act as diffusers. Used a common-cathode Red/Blue LED in each eye socket, and wired it so you can have either RED, BLUE or Both LEDs turned on. Both LEDs in each eye makes an eerie purple glow. I'll try to remember to take some pics next weekend.

    I am so bummed. I was trying to get things together for Halloween, and it just sneaked up on me. It is only a few days away, and I haven't had any time to set up decorations, or even shop for a costume. So here on my coffee table sits four brand new Epson digital projectors, two brand new smaller LED digital projectors, and six of the media boxes to drive them without computers, along with six thumb drives. I was going to get the AtomsFEAR digital videos and project them in various...

    Thanks for the update. Did it seem bright enough? The reason I ask is because on Amazon the projector specs state ' 1200 International lumens which is equivalent to 120 U.S. lumens'. I didn't know there were 2 standards.

    Hi tarpleyg, I really like the insect sound you have fading in and out in your Soundcloud audio. I know I've heard it in a horror movie recently but can't place it. I'm trying to find that insect sound for my cemetery scene - do you know what insect it is so I can Google it, or is there some way I could get a copy of it from you? thanks very much!

    victor-eyd replied to a thread Electronic/Software: HELP! I need computer folks to help me. in Halloween Props
    First of all, these are great short throw projectors, so you need less thand 6ft to get very large 4x3 images Second, you need either a media player or attach your laptop to the projectors via vga or hdmi to view your atmos files. One interesting feature you have is the monitor in/out vga sockets. What I think you can do is to have one signal (media player or pc) go into one and then daisy chain to the second...

    My twin nieces are dressing up as little witches this year for Halloween. My sister signed up for Trunk or Treat in town, Sunday October 30th. I have been given the opportunity to decorate her trunk and surrounding area. I've scoured the forum for ideas as well as Pinterest. I've got a clear vision and I'm running with it - someone on here did an amazing stone fireplace. AMAZING. I decided I'm making a minature stone fireplace for her mini van. While many seem to cower at the sheer size of...

    The reason is that he needs TWO drivers this year... One to drive the hearse: And the other to drive this behind the hearse: That's an 8HP riding lawnmower, with the mowing deck and linkages removed, and an actual casket mounted as the body.

    For the last few years, my brother and I have been driving his hearse in the Worlds of Fun amusement park Halloween Haunt parade in Kansas City, MO. Haunt happens every Friday and Saturday night from mid-September until Halloween, and is opened at dusk by the Overlords Awakening, where a red-robed, skull-faced character rises and towers about 30 feet over the crowd and addresses them, informing them of the horrors they are about to face. The park has a number of haunted houses, shows, and...
