    Last night was! Haunt workers from about 2 1/2 hours away came to see Ravens Grin Inn! An extremely appreciative bunch of people,So Lavish with their compliments! They saw the house in two groups, then remained to play" Hyde & Shriek " for another hour! They all seemed to thoroughly enjoy My style of "Haunting"! AND So were impressed with the house and the work I have put into it too! (Can't get any personally better than this!) One Haunt worker told us later what he was supposed...

    Buy a cheap toilet seat and hang it around their neck= s"Party Pooper!" As about a 6th grader I asked "Connie" my classmate, why she hadn't put on some kind of costumes as we were all standing in the Sun waiting for the parade to start? Then I noticed her Brother Gary didn't have on a costume either? These two had a limited "wardrobe". A few seconds later I realized they had swapped clothes ! Gary and Connie did look a lot alike and were still the same height! I was So Impressed with...

    Be highly educated, be naturally gifted, be smarter than the "Average Bear", have the blessing of good health, be in the "Right Place" at the right time, never make a large, noticeable mistake, be genuinely kind, caring and communicative, be average looking or better.. and STILL not be successful in the" way" or "ways" that you would like to be. Life can be just that way.. sometimes. Discouraging,almost enough sometimes to make one to start shedding unnecessary body parts....whether they...

    A dark, still night it was as weary travelers pulled off from the main route onto a side road passed a sign promising a warm bed. "I hope they have a stables for the horses." "I would think they will have or someone else close by will have them.' Then they both realized they were now on a red brick paving,looking up and from side to side they saw many surprisingly impressive houses,all very dark, it was "Late" you know... They came to an impressive four-story Brick hotel towering there...

    A terribly silly question for me! I'm on "Vacation"all the time and i have too much fun here to have any desire to go anyplace else, but in a few hours we get to drive 2 hours and sit in a comfy Dentist's chair! He might try to hurt me, but i just laugh the whole time! One time i was laughing as a Dentist was drilling away. laughing so much he stopped and asked me "Why are you laughing?" I said, "I'm just sitting here thinking how in maybe 2,000 years ,some archeologist might find my...

    Aaron! Making people Scream & Laugh is an excellent combination! Much smarter than terrorizing anyone and having them seek you out later for revenge! Entertaining people and an interest in actual Supernatural things is what i have been involved with almost every night for these last 28 years. The "Making People laugh" thing is just a logical extension of who I am, the Supernatural part came with this house when i bought it.. According to people much, much older than myself, this old...

    "They" say childhood experiences sometimes decide our preferences for much of our adult lives, even in the face of being older, smarter? more worldly-wise, those childhood experiences still will "Ring" a certain "Bell" within some deeper part of our psyche (Pavolov's Dog syndrome?) With all this said (building my case . or is it an excuse? ) my favorite spooky movie will always be "House On Haunted Hill"-Vincent Price. As I got much older I even accidentaly discovered the that the "House"...

    I see this old, possibly silent movie on Tv late at night.. You are a waiter about to rush through the swinging door with a tray held high full of food for waiting patrons, but, the swinging door won't "Swing"? Looking through the door's porthole window (there to help eliminate collisions.accidents, wasted fresh cuisine on the floor and stained clothing) You see another Waiter pushing toward you, Now keeping the door from moving either way. Behind him you see a room of people seated...

    I had no Haunt . yet. I was working for some people in their house, I happened to mention my haunt idea to their 10 yr.old son. He rattled off about 20 ideas for a haunt. Some of them are impossible,some I had already thought of,some I had not. And those were good ideas. Did I use any of his ideas? I really don't remember,but I gave him that credit recently when he moved back here with his wife and opened a new restaurant.

    I have been writing here since last December on this forum. Somewhere along the way I created one character I named "Snakeman" Who I envisioned as a very large human-sized Black snake who is as intelligent as any human, and can hide within our human dominated world by various methods and yet still pass before us unnoticed if this is what he wants or needs to do. Today as I was ordering a sandwich I simply handed the order to the woman written upon a small piece of paper,maybe this freed her...

    I just watched the Facebook previews for it...I think I Could have been a little impressed by what I saw ,if the voice-over guy(Director?) wasn't working so hard to make it sound so fantastic when there was really nothing worth bragging about happening... on-screen. Trying to brag about "Incredible camera work" as the camera just slowly rotates on a tripod 360 degrees? The rest of the movie, the premiss,acting? Might be great? Maybe someday I will see it? It is difficult to make a movie...
