    Merchant Reviews
    hey all, Here's another review about props I got this season. As many probably have already read about Scare Factory, many reviews are negative.. took me a few years to contact them and check them out. I've also read positive reviews. So, I figured I would start by contacting them and see...

  5. Fog: Chauvet 1400

    Halloween Props
    I'm looking for a new fog machine. Right now there are several vendors that have factory refurbished Chauvet 1400s with a timer for $120. The 1400 is recently discontinued. It's a great price for a pretty high capacity machine. Does anyone have one, and if so how do you like it? Thanks!

  10. Micheals Skull Tea Light Holder Coverted to Electric

    General Halloween
    These are NOT easy to convert. Plus you have to use 1950's Noma Christmas lights because of the way these sets are designed. It's the only way to do it safely. And yes, the cord is coming out of the back of the base, it looks like it came from the factory like that I've successfully...
