  1. Electronic/Software: Creating a cheap 5.1 surround sound system

    Halloween Props
    Hi, I would like to make a speaker system where voices seem to move around an area. As people walk up the driveway voices travels around them. Back in the bad old days I had an 8 track player and quadraphonic speaker system that played Dark Side of the Moon. I always loved it. Today I'm...
  2. A Little Bit About Me

    Member Introduction
    Hello Halloween Forum Members, Although I signed up last Halloween season, I have really not posted anything till just recently. I started building Halloween props and sets many years ago when I was in Jr. High and long before anything was available for purchase. The end result was that (back...
  3. Cheap Projector at Amazon

    General Halloween
    Just saw this on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0165ZJ0VI/?tag=dealnewscom&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER Not sure how bright it is, but with all the stuff that's included, it seems like a not half bad deal.
  4. Other: Zombie Dolls from Party City

    Halloween Props
    Party City has three zombie dolls: Bloody Mary, Tammy Terror and Bride Doll. They have blue glowing eyes and say a few lines about themselves, apparently in the third person, like "She's the ghoul of your dreams" as opposed to saying the phrases in first person, like one would expect a doll to...
  5. 2018 3 stall garage haunt

    General Halloween
    Due to potential bad weather I decided to put my display in my garage this year. Weather turned out to be nice but I will still do the display in the garage in future years. All animatronics were built by me over the years. I have 9 total. Next year I will work on lighting and maybe some...
  6. Boo Who's Rain Drenched Haunt

    General Halloween
    Couldn't put much out with steady rain all day and night - so I relied heavily on lighting and lots of movement. Used my Shiatsu's to "float" jack-o-lanterns in the upper windows and move my old scary lady in her antique wheelchair under cover of the porch. Had my fogger near the skellie...

  8. Static: Found cool parts

    Halloween Props
    So you never know what kinda parts you need for props. I got my washing machine worked on today. The shocks were bad. I had never seen any before. So before I threw the box away, I opened it. I'm sure these will come in handy one day for something I'm building. Even if I take them apart for...
  9. Static: My First Cauldron!

    Halloween Props
    So I haven't been able to really start all my decorating that I want to get done. For the past couple years I haven't really been able to decorate. I did some simple things last year but I literally had to take everything done the night of Halloween. My house is over 100 years old and...

    Halloween Props
    Welcome to the Scariest Show on Earth - 2018! So we change our theme every year - which I don't recommend because the neighbors now EXPECT something new and different! I've been barely able to keep up with our website and the forum - but am determined to show some love here on the one and only...
  11. Seating advice for party.

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Im torn about what to do with the seating situation in my living room. This will be the music and dancing area but I have a big sectional. Do you think its worth it to take the couch out and put in pub style tables and stools? I feel like the couch is bad for mingling. I also would have to push...
  12. Wind Damage Last week

    General Halloween
    As many of you know, we got hit bad by the remains of Hurricane Michael last week. The witch hut was completely demolished and many of the props inside were damaged, the witch got toppled, but due to her mostly wire construction she was undamaged. Had three tombstones broken and most others...

  15. Super happy!

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I have been in severe pain for months and went from walking to hobbling with a cane or having my students push me in a wheelchair because I physically couldn't make it from one end of my school to the other in about a month. It turns out I had a MASSIVE herniated disc. When my surgeon saw it...

    General Halloween
    Have you ever worked at Spirit Halloween? What was it like? I see either really good reviews of working there or really bad reviews of working there.
  19. 502 errors and SLOW

    Site Issues and Feedback
    The last 24 hours or so I've gotten random 502 bad gateway errors. Not every time, but enough to mention here at this point. Also since the move to the cloud servers, I've noticed the forum itself slow to connect, timing out and sometimes getting a "server too busy" response with increasing...
