  2. Prop Showcase: Need Ideas on my Atmos FX Garage door

    Halloween Props
    This year Im adding a projector in the garage to display the bone chillers video fx. My projector displays from top to bottom very well but is short on the sides.

  3. Neighbors who are complete A**holes

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Seems like there's always some complete A**hole in every sub. But why do they always end up being my neighbors? A few years ago we were fortunate to be able to by a house for my daughter while she attended college. It was a nice little house in a huge sub, but still close to campus. Almost...
  4. 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...
  5. Haunt in a large party tent?

    General Halloween
    Hi everyone, here's what I have in mind. My garage is too small for a "garage haunt", and besides, it also serves as my workshop (never parked a car in there ever since we moved into the place). I do have a huge driveway, though (over 5 meter wide, 20 meter long), big enough for an 8x4 meter...
  6. My birthday nightmare :(

Halloween forum friends... I lost 34 years of collecting Halloween stored in my garage and I have nothing Halloween...
  7. Clown Entrance way

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I built this Clown Entrance for a Halloween party last year. It turned out fantastic. The eyes rotate, using cheap motors I picked up from Princess Auto. I projected the image and air brushed onto plywood. I didn't build it to be self standing (but you could)....for our purpose it was...
  8. A new look for our yard

    General Halloween
    The mermaid skeleton came! She is gorgeous!!! Rather than a typical bone color, she is kind of grayish, with a bendy tail. She'll certainly look better than our old mermaid, which was a regular Bucky type, with a homemade tail. Due to a house move, we couldn't Halloween last year, and when I...
  9. Starting over-best way to build flats ?

    REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    Hello Forum, I have been off line for some time as in 2017 the local town made us an offer we could not refuse on the homestead. Long story short we relocated to a much smaller property and 2018 was our first year in the new place. I managed to get my yard set up and the neighbors and kids...

    Halloween Props
    Hello all - I finally am getting around to posting a brief video of last year's setup. This was taken the night before Halloween and does not have footage of the massive amounts of fog we put out and the hundred of kids that showed up. I also should have pulled the car out of the driveway before...

  14. How do you store your Halloween stuff?

    General Halloween
    I thought this might be an interesting discussion and may help some people out. I have two "storage decks" (as I call them), the shed, a loft in the garage and just this year started hanging stuff on the fence. Here are some pictures. Maybe include some of your pictures so we can see...
  15. Halloween Decorations Yard Display - Boddy Creek Manor

    General Halloween
    My outside walkthrough. I took this video at the very end of the night after all the halloween party people left and we were already starting to put things away (which is why you can see some boxes in the garage - where we had a food display). Also, the area outside the garage is a little...
  16. Pneumatic: Garage Mausoleum

    Halloween Props
    So, I've been kinda dormant with building for a while. This year I decided to go big or go home:) Early September I got the idea to do a crypt wall over the garage door, thanks to others on here. Well then I decided to up the anti a little bit and add a little "shock" factor. So, I started...

    I need some advice how to handle the situation with I have a large number of people that want to go through my tiny one-car garage haunt. I had about 200 visitors and maybe half of them wanted to walk through... When the groups were small, I asked them to walk through slowly and enjoy. It's...

    Finally got around to posting something to YouTube! I had about 200 visitors and maybe 100 walked through my haunt. It's not too scary, I keep it fairly tame as we have a lot of young children. Still it was a lot of fun to put together... Enjoy! :D
