    just a few shots from around the house....I realize I need to spend some time doing a better job photographing my stuff! I love being able to walk room to room, fully immersed in halloween. I have been collecting for years. Every year I set up an outdoor halloween scene to scare the kiddies...

    In my haunt I'm going to have a jack-in-the-box that is going to be operated by a creepy doll. That part I have no problem with. What I need help with is ideas on the scare. I plan on having the scare not coming from the box, but coming from behind where the people will be when they're looking...

    So moved to Lakeland last year during the summer. really didn't do much for Halloween because my neighborhood is rather child deprived and we barely got any trick or treats, plus with the move was just too tired. but i DID go to the Lakeland Zombie Fest, and i got to experience being a scare...

    Saw these 2 online they look pretty creepy to me which one do you think has the best scare factor or would scare people more, I like both of their details on the face. Kristen is a couple hundred more then the bolt I guess because she has more movement she moves side to side like shes about to...

    Hey guys I have been looking at poisonprops.com never bought from them before they sure have some cool animatronics expensive but amazing to say none the less. Any of you have a favorite from them? I have 3 that I like so far which one would scare someone the most. My theme is mixed so any of...

    Four young men drove over two hours to arrive at our door, so I proceeded to quickly scare them before they had even purchased their tickets! All four were scared by a small, cheap everyday used item that becomes trashed everyday by millions of people. I scared all four of them with a...

    Found this at the local pawn shop. Really nice condition too. I guess this is how it was done before cd's. Put an LP on and scare the TOT's :)

    Hello All! I know I meant to put this up sooner but there was just much going on after Halloween. In fact this week I was STILL putting stuff away. But it is all away and sadly, it is a long wait until next year. Alright. Much has gone on this past year and after last years, "The Creep...

    I don't have much knowledge of camera's but I would like to be able to automatically capture the scare moments on a scare. Maybe even have a live feed to a tv near the line for the waiting patrons. Is it as easy as hacking into a wired shutter controller and running through a relay or is it...
  13. General Halloween
    This "season" we saw a few people have to leave the very first room. There will always be the nervous little girl, we saw a few of them, one returned a few days later,went through,just fine.. but some people when you scare them have caused me concerns. Yesterday afternoon there were two...

    You are all some scary people! Wish I had found this place sooner. I've picked up several good ideas in the last couple hours alone! I love to try and scare the kids, they need to be about 6 years and up. Little bitty ones get away free. But older ones, hey, you came to MY house!

    We have 2 drop panels in a winding hallway that is 3' wide - it's a hallway of pictures in frames, and 2 of the pics drop down. They are close enough so that one will scare the front of a group, the second will scare the rear of the group. The panels are built and work great, but we've never...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSVNZLAsivg In the video the tray contains a mechanism where there is no air or electricity and the top flips open quite abruptly for a quick scare. Any thoughts on how this is accomplished with such good force? Thanks for any input!

    Has anyone ever set up a trigger for a camera to take pictures of your haunt victims when they get a good startle scare, then offer them to be emailed after? Just wondering how you could do this? Can it be set up to be automated to take the picture at certain scare points? We really are not...

    This year for our haunted trail, we have constructed a pretty large cave that has a rickety bridge that is about 16 ft. long, and near the end a hag with her cauldron. We will hang bats from the ceiling and it will be lit by black lights, we plan to paint the sides of the "cave" with blue...

    Hey gang. I need your help. In my backyard haunt this year we're going with a haunted bed and breakfast theme. Various rooms associated with a nights stay at a B&B that goes horribly wrong. lol. For my last scare I wanted to create a fake bedroom scene in my garage. My neice will be dressed...
  20. Halloween Props
    I've seen a lot of props, and I've noticed some annoying trends among them that need to stop. 1. "Come closer": A good 40% of props say a variation of this phrase, and it's incredibly cheesy. It immediately broadcasts that a scare is coming, and is totally overused. Really, any prop that...
