  1. Jack the Ripper theme

    General Halloween
    Hey everyone, we're in the planning stages of our haunt this year. We're thinking about doing a Jack the Ripper theme. There isn't a whole lot out there that I can find of other haunts doing this theme. I have spoken to a few folks though, and if anyone HAS done a Jack the Ripper theme, I'd love...

  7. Our Fifth and Final Year

    General Halloween
    This is the fifth season my wife and I have done the extreme decorating for Halloween. We started with ambitious goals and have added to it every year.

    Halloween Props
    Hi everyone, for my first post (long time silent observer) I wanted to share the tail end of my hearse build. Now, first thing's first: I needed wheels.

    Halloween Props
    It’s a good feeling. Almost a relief knowing I am done. I’ve been at it non stop since mid July and am about burnt out. I think I made about 35 new props after only making one or two things last year. I can’t wait to set up this weekend. My final prop was a 13 foot tall demon tree king...
