    Here's my 2010 experience: I was not pleased in the least. The Spirit Halloween store did not open on time, leaving myself and a few others out in the pouring rain, and when it finally did, the employees acted like it was beneath them to help anyone; seemed to me like we had just woken them from a nap and they were cranky because of it

    The video is very cool, and I realize that the stores are franchises, so I am willing to give Spirit the benefit of the doubt and try again this year. *Crosses fingers*

    the franchise aspect kinda negates your criticism, as you stated

    Why did they think they needed those special video effects? To make the props look good. Most of those props should be fine without the stupid FX in that vid.

    In fact, in some of those closeups, a few of them look REALLY plastic.

    Sorry, just not a fan of a lot of the props this year. There's a couple I dig, but most are just meh for me.

    Im hoping I walk into this. It looks great. I dont how many remember last years Spirit fiascos where so many of the stores didnt get half their merchandise in due to "shipping problems" overseas.

    The spirit store by me had trouble finalizing a location last year, opened late, and the displays suffered because of it. I think the numbers and variety of props are seriously great this year. It's really kind of a zombie theme and I'm glad. I've been sick to death of clowns. Zombies are always in style! Have you noticed animations have gotten more intricate this year? I hope sales are strong because it could be just the thing to push the budget animated prop design right over the top for next year. Most animated props do almost everything this year. I think next year could be the breakthroughs in animated design, at this budget level. We'll see.

    About the vid- I like any vid but I agree- less fx's. Make it cool and fun, but let the props speak more for themselves. Watching those vids, a lot of people actually find more coverage of the props themselves in context, the deciding factor for purchase. I know I do.
