    I had a blast this Halloween and an even better time filming this video with my niece. She helps me build props throughout the Summer and shot some of the video footage of my haunt. Then she taught me how to use iMovie. So here is Hellbilly Holler 2020.

    I am already thinking of new ideas and what I want to do different or keep for next Halloween . Of course hoping that the pandemic is something of the past or at least we’ll under control. What are your hopes for Halloween next year. What do you hope to add or change in your haunt next year. I...

    Hey everyone, I'm working on a story for AllHallowsGeek.com and I am looking for feedback from owners of professional and home haunts on the impact COVID-19 might have on the 2020 haunt season. I've put together a short survey to collect information about the changes you are making, or not...

    The Original; Madam Belben

    The show was heavily influenced and structured by using the amazing musical pieces from "The Haunted Mansion" movie. I utilized the opening credits sequence (embracing the sound effects) to structure my story. I was lucky to have such willing talent to make this a reality. My longtime friend...

    Note: This is a repost of an old tutorial whose links to pictures were broken with the software update at HF. Got these terrific tentacle arms from Fright Props but needed two things to make them work for our haunt. First, they needed to be hangable. Second, they had to be extended another 3...

    So it's that time. I debated for quite some time if I wanted to do a midweek setup this year with Halloween being on a Thursday. But we're locked in to having it up this year with our application to be on the SoCal Hauntlist. These are some pics from the setup from last year. This is the...

    Ok, so I just moved to Florida and am fortunate enough to have an in-ground pool at my rental property. Because I didn’t do anything last year in Montana I am really considering doing a walkthrough on Halloween and using my in-ground pool as a vat of acid and dissolve a half dozen bodies...

    Since a thread has not been made for this yet I thought I would make one. Spirit released their first 2019 sneak peek today, and it is the "Terror Dog", also known as Zuul from Ghostbusters. It is a high price point at $499.99, but he is a licensed prop made of foam-filled latex and almost 5...

    Hey all. Just curious, have any of your neighbors started decorating “big” after you started, or after you moved in? I’m sure some of you are lucky enough to live on the same block as other haunters, but I’m curious if anyone here has inspired another nearby to start their own excessive...
