    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...

  7. Haunters: The Art of the Scare (aka Haunters The Movie)

    General Halloween
    Just watched this on Netflix (finally). I was surprised I couldn't dig up a thread on it here on the forums. I was so excited to see another documentary on haunters... A second chance to maybe show off that we all aren't completely crazy. Nope, it mainly focused on one crazy guy with his...

    Midwest Haunters Convention
    I just saw that the Midwest Haunters Convention is going to be in Chicago this year, this should be an interesting change? The Pre-convention bus tours will be different! I just wonder how people are going to react, I have a feeling some are going to like the move while others are going to...

    General Halloween
    Not sure on were this should be posted so if this is the wrong area, please put it its proper category. I saw this web site and thought maybe there might be some haunters out there that might like this collectors item. Thought maybe for the kids or whatever. Just wanted to pass this along...
  12. Pneumatic: Pneumatic Slenderman Prop Build

    Halloween Props
    Hey Haunters! So I took a much needed break after the season ended but I finally finished my video about my slender man prop. He's motion activated, runs on pneumatics and was a huge hit! He leans forward suddenly and his arms lunge out at you while he plays a sound effect from one of his video...
  13. Ever Feel Like...

    General Halloween
    Do you ever feel that with all of the prep that we haunters do every October, that we are somehow missing out on the Halloween going on all around us? I sometimes do... feeling a little like Charlie Brown's sister Sally:"HALLOWEEN IS OVER AND I MISSED IT!" Don't get me wrong - I LOVE being...

  17. Fence Banging Zombie

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hey Haunters! Today I’m building an electric powered fence banging zombie. I used a windshield wiper motor for the movement and built the fence myself. He rocks the fence back and forth and with the added audio I think he’s gunna spook a lot of people. Have a look and let me know what your guys...

    I'm working on some things to add to my Halloween web site and even after much research I'm not having much luck, have any of you come across any information on when Haunters started bringing cemeteries into their Halloween displays, how that got started? When it came about was it started by a...

    Hey Haunters! This week I built a haunt panel for my nuclear meltdown zombie area in my haunt! I tried to use pretty inexpensive items and it came out fantastic!
