    The only other thing I can think of is the various Hawthorne villages. They've got a bunch of different ones - mostly licensed like Universal Monsters, Nightmare Before Christmas, Winnie the Pooh, Munsters etc. Don't know much about them...they seem to involve some kind of subscription model, and limited releases. But yeah, lots of village people (!) on the forums, but the discussion usually revolves around Dept 56 and Spooky Town.

    Hey Kim! Welcome to the forums. I'm glad they went ahead and made it official! ;) So you're looking for decorations for inside for a party? I'm more of a yard haunt guy myself. One thing we often do is hold onto old costumes and masks and see how they can be repurposed into decorations. Black construction paper cut into silhouettes can be cheap and effective. White sheets if you have them are great for making ghosts, or covering furniture to make things seem abandoned. I think it's too...

    Always find the super short, pithy epitaphs the funniest, but they're sooooo hard to do. "Jack B. Nimble - or so he thought" was great, but I love your final solution.

    Love Mystery Science Theater although it was almost off the air before I caught wind of it. I think Pod People might be my favourite. Gonna have to agree to disagree on Plan 9 though. I was really excited the first time I saw it - I had heard legend..., but for me it falls into the category of "so bad it's...still really bad". I only watched it once and it was PAINFULLY slow. Maybe I need to track down a riffed version.

    Wow! 50 years! I came to both of these a little late. I used to watch Munsters when I was wee, but the Addams Family seemed more like a show for big people back then. So it wasn't until much later that I got on that bus.

    Not even the slightest Halloween vibe from this one but I know there's Tim Burton fans here... and I THINK this was a bit of a pet project for him. As much as I love the look of Nightmare Before Christmas, my favourite Burton movies are probably Big Fish, Ed Wood and Edward Scissorhands. I'm kinda undecided on this - love Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz is amazing. It's written by the same team that wrote Ed Wood. So that's all good stuff. But Burton's last few films have done nothing for...

    It seems that no one got the BIG CLUE I left in one of my previous posts . . . Were any of you children of the 70's? Did you ever watch Good Times? What was James Evans wife's name? If I were there, I'd get to looking. The package was delivered yesterday at noon. My victim hasn't posted, so I hope the package wasn't stolen. :eek:

    I am a true Halloween junkie. I've been checking out the drug stores for years AND the grocery stores. I remember watching a movie with my ex husband years ago and a drug addict was crawling around on the floor "digging" in the carpet. I was maybe about 20 at the time. I asked my ex what was the actress doing. He said she was looking for "rocks," drugs in the carpet. He said when addicts get that strung out they get desperate and search everywhere - the ashtrays, the carpet, etc., to see...

    Thanks hallorenscene! This year has definitely been a very bad and tough one for sure. Not driving sucks, too. When I read posts about what this store and that store has out, I have panic attacks. I see all the news goodies and props passing before my eyes. :o On a good note, we are entering my favorite time of the year. I'm just ready for the temps to drop from the 90+ category. It is rather difficult to think of hay rides, bonfires, weenie/marshmallow roasts, carving pumpkins, etc.,...

    Hey Kira! Welcome to the forums. And congratulations on the new house! Lots of info on tombstones here, but I don't think there's a wrong way to make them (well, unless it's windy and you forget to tie 'em down). This is probably the classic tombstone tutorial that Terra put together a few years back. But there's no shortage of ideas or expertise here if you want to try something different....

    It looks like the same thing I saw at Walmart on the weekend. I took a super-short video of it (someone had it running for a while just before me and I think the sound was annoying the crap out of people, so I didn't let it play for more than a second or two.) I'm in Canada so no guarantee Walmart will have it there.

    Hi Marie, just catching up with everyone, it looks like you've been busy at other things. Hope all is well and that your halloween plans for this year are going ok! All the best!

    Happy New Year Marie! I have now posted my 2011 pics. I was disappointed that I didn't remember to take night shots, so there are only daytime shots. I have also started an album of wrought iron and graveyards. I started this when I was searching for wrought iron designs for my Gothic Garden, so a new little hobby was born! I will post my garden sometime too. All the best for 2012.

    Hi Marie, I hope your halloween went well. I have blogged my walkthru, no pictures yet, working on that. It went well, we made our Creepy Carnival interactive for the kiddies. You have to play games at a carnival. Big kids asked...."Is there clowns inside?" insert evil laugh here!

    Love all your cemetary pics. My kids tease me about all of the cemetaries they were drug through on family vacations. As a result they have threatend to burry me in one of the newer genneric cemetaries. You know the ones with flush ground momuments, topped with bunches plastic flowers. I told them I would haunt them forever if they did that!!!

    Hi, Marie!

    How are your plans coming along for this year?

    We're starting to feel the crunch as the clock ticks down, but hopefully it will all come together (or at least some of it!)

    Hi Marie! Just an update on the anniversary stays. So far, no haunted hotel nights. Haven't booked any - out of our budget right now. Something to save for though. Thanks for the suggestions, have written them in my Halloween Idea book!

    Thank you so much for your comment. Compared to other people's haunts and talents I was not feeling as confident about what we put together. Thank you again!

    Thanks so much Marie for the kind words and the friending. Our display has a long way to go but it gets a little bit better each year. The skeletons are the one big yard project my wife has each year. She sets 'em up and decides what they'll be doing. (I think she said they'll be playing The Game of Life this year!)

    Shoppers used to be great for Halloween. I picked up some really nice univerrsal monster masks there on clearance. They had the skeletons for 3 or 4 years and then switched them out for another big impressive item (Giant skulls, I think?) Not much there last year though.

    I'd live to see a night shot of the ghosts in action. I'm sure they look amazing. And as for the riser, he is perfect. I guess old Halloween props never die (because they're already dead?)

    Thanks again!
