  1. General Halloween
    All, I humbly come before you all to ask for a birthday favor. I'd like to have a Ouija board birthday cake and I have the image saved but if possible, I'd like the board to read "Happy 48th Birthday Wes'. I have ZERO knowledge of image editing software and I'm hoping one of you can help me...

    I'm building a trash can trauma prop and want to weather the 31 gallon galvanized steel trash can, add some rust. I read somewhere that there is a youtube video on how to do this using muriatic acid. I can't seem to find that exact video. Anybody have tips on precisely what I need to do? (Do I...

    Not a shock that I was a MonsterKid, growing up in the 1970's, reading Famous Monsters of Filmland, watching for old movies in the TV Guide, and staying up late on Saturdays to watch local horror hosts. I began making short movies on my dads Super-8 camera, each with a horror or monster trend...

    I mentioned this in the literature forum but wanted to make people who may not travel that far down the selection list aware of it. I just finished Dracul, written by Dacre Stoker (great grand-nephew of Bram) and J.D. Barker. I highly recommend it! A prequel to Dracula, it weaves the Stoker...

    Looking to do a Leering Skeleton prop and something else. I already invested in one wiper motor, 12 volt power and speed control. Looking to go a cheaper route for the second one. I read the cheap synchronous motors are good but get hot???? It will need to run for 4 hours straight. Would...

    I got a nice 12gal compressor off Craigslist so I'm good to go in that department but need hoses, fittings, solenoid valves, a cylinder with 4" travel. Maybe a controller or I might use arduino with a relay. I've read a lot on the FrightProps website - are they generally recommended here...

    Hello! Listening to the Halloween Radio as I type this. Very nice! I'm all at home here. I was going through old CD burns today, cleaning my haunted house, and found a spooky mix I'd done ages ago. Reminiscent of the radio here. I happened on this forum because I was out looking for whoever...

    Forgive me if this was already posted here. I don't entertain or attend much- so I don't often read this forum. But I just saw this on FB and thought I'd share.

    I'm new to the forum, though my love of Halloween is decidedly not. I did a few small (ie, garage) home haunts many years ago when I lived in Columbus, GA and then moved to Atlanta for better job prospects. I LARP (Live Action Role Play), sew, read, play console and PC games and consider...

  20. General Halloween
    Hey there. I'm curious if anyone has ever had a haunt or walk-through on their property and have felt that they needed to protect themselves, legally. How did you go about it? Did you need to pay someone or talk to your homeowners insurance about this? Or was there a simpler solution? Or did...
