  2. Haunted house on Google Maps

    General Halloween
    Anyone ever see their home on Google Maps and realize that the photo is from October?!?! I used GPS on my phone to check for traffic issues on my route home the other day and inadvertently found that the “Street View” for the area was taken in October! Excellent! For some extended time that will...
  3. Nightmare Before Christmas 2019

    General Halloween
    Since there seems to be new merch ever year, I figured we'd get this one started for 2019. Any new Nightmare stuff people have spotted yet? It looks like Home Depot will be getting the Jack and Sally animatronics from Spirit (no word yet on whether they will be an improvement). There will...

  5. Haunters nearby you?

    General Halloween
    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...
  6. 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. FREE: Tombstones for Pickup in Sudbury, MA USA

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    I am downsizing my house and have no room for Halloween stuff. Free tombstones for local pickup in Sudbury MA, USA. Approximately 4 feet tall. Sorry to post in a second forum but I wanted to get extra visibility to see if I can find them a home before they hit the landfill.
  8. Hobby Lobby 2019

    General Halloween
    It's happening, and it won't be long before we are in full-on Halloween! Hobby Lobby is putting out fall. Last year I didn't catch the fall floral bloom until mid-May and it took them until June to put out the rest. They're not wasting any time this year - not only do they have the fall floral...

  12. Static: Foam board insulation-how do you get the 48"x8' sheets home?

    Halloween Props
    /scratches head. I know this sounds like a stupid question (and maybe it is) but-I don't have a truck-and I have to believe that I'm not the only one;) I can't find anywhere that will deliver the foam board used to make tombstones etc for a sane price. So that makes things a little difficult...
  13. Other: Recommending PVC Pipe Cutter for prop building

    Halloween Props
    Last year I had some large size PVC pipe to cut and wanted a clean cut without all the plastic debris from sawing. Not being someone with a lot of tools or being handy constructing things, I ended up buying an Orbit "1/2 inch-to-2 inch PVC cutting tool" from Home Depot. A bit on the pricey side...

  15. Mask totem

    General Halloween
    I love masks but storage can become an issue. I was on Spider Hilll's site a while back and noticed a fitting that was either new to their line or I had just missed previously. It's a slip cross fitting for 1 " PVC. Inspired me to build this. "][/URL] Here's a detail. Mounted on a wooden...

  17. Anyone in the Chicago area ever visit Ahlgrim Funeral Home?

    General Halloween
    I saw them mentioned on the net - seem to enjoy macabre aspects of their profession...even to the point of having a haunt-themed miniature golf course in the basement under the funeral home! But don't worry, they strictly forbid playing while a funeral is going on upstairs...
  18. Hearse rental?

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Just starting to plan our Vampire Funeral theme this year, and I'm wondering... Is it possible to rent a hearse for an evening? I'd love to have this in the driveway when guests arrive, in front of my garage-door-turned-wall-crypt. Have any of you done this? Where do you rent from...a...
