    I've been throwing a Halloween party the last few years, and I want to up my game. I have a decent amount of decor, but I want to find a way to make the atmosphere a bit spookier, put people on edge a bit. I tend to stick with fairly traditional Halloween elements - lots of skeletons, bats...

    General Halloween
    Hi, I never got around to posting my last years display. It went down well, got some nice comments on the night and even made a couple of kids run back to their parents crying.
