    Been a long time since I was around but I'm back. Always loved Halloween and always wanted to go crazy with my house for trick or treating. When I lived in Houston I did just that and loved every bit of it. When I moved I sold most of my stuff and have come to miss those days. Well I am settled...

    So I really want to do a carnival/circus/sideshow theme. I think I figured out how to do a circus tent in a semi-affordable way. I have a 3 axis skull/skeleton. I'm thinking just swapping out his script and dressing him up as a sideshow barker. "Step right up, step right up, come see the...

    Hey folks! I would like some help in figuring out my final scare for our home haunt this year. I'll give some basic info about our setup, then my ideas and problems for the final scene itself. So, first- our haunt. 90% of the haunt is outdoors. It follows our long gravel driveway through the...

    Finally "breaking ground" on construction of our annual garage haunt!! Only 1 week behind schedule, not bad. Thought I would document it this year for posterity. This is our floorplan from last year. We aren't changing the layout, but we do want to jazz up some of the rooms. ROOM 1 (entry...

    Russell's 2017 Halloween for those that have recovered from the 2017 season and still have interest. Enjoy! http://www.snydercentral.com/halloween/H2017/H2017.htm Rain messed up the set up this year but everyone seemed to have a good time. Once again this year I'm tired and thinking I might be...

    Hello all, I am finally old enough to enjoy Halloween the way I've always wanted to. Basically I can spend money and build props. We always have great halloween parties, but this is the first year that I am jumping into the prop building and trying to create a real spooky vibe. My occupation...

    What is something that other people find terrifying but does not bother you? For me, it is clowns. I don't find them the least bit disturbing- even the ones that are meant to be scary. I'm going to see the new release of IT this weekend and am looking forward to date night. I just never "got...

    If you were only setting up something on your porch, what would your go-to scare be? What one prop or other jump scare would you work onto the porch to get the most bang for your buck and give the local kids the best scare and/or excitement? Would you cram as many props on there as possible, or...

    Hello, I'm a novice to this kind of thing, but willing to learn. I have just completed building an 8 relay banger (Octo Banger) built using instructions from Button Banger.com web site. I have never used Electronics like this, it's opened my eyes and the potential from this 5v 8 relay module is...

    I was wondering if you lot could help me. I recently was researching some Horror attractions and Scare Acting and was considering if I would be a suitable scare actor? I am autistic so my communication levels can vary and I can react to being touched (though this isn't as much of an issue as it...

    It's just time for them to move on. They work & they've been used on 2 Halloweens, this year & the year I got them, 2013. They sing "I Got You Babe" though not the whole song. Here's the official video from Grandin Road: Scare came with some weird curly doll hair that wasn't very Cher-like...

    So I've been helping the local recreation center with their haunted walk for the past 5 years, and every year we try to add something new. We have, in my opinion, one of the best haunted houses in the state of Maine... but I need a new finale. The last few years have been a car scare, and the...

    So my 5 year old accidentally saw a clip of AtmosFearFX projections and did not think it was very cool, I don't want to scare the crap out of my neighbors kids either. Are there any 'happy haunts' projections?

    I have purchased a couple of these older Brightsign HD1010 video players off of ebay and they work great but when i trigger a scare video to play with the gpio inputs there is a delay of around 2 seconds. Its hard to anticipate when to trigger a scare video, anyone else experience this or know...

    What kind of event or sight or sound or combination of things would it take to actually scare you? Something turning "On" by itself? A voice? Or something even stranger that I have not mentioned?
