  1. General Halloween
    I have browsed this site for years, and decided to look to you guys for help! This year will be my 5th Halloween party for kids this year and want to do a "haunted trick-or-treat trail." (On a whim last year, I asked some of the parents that were dressed up to take a bowl of candy to one of...
  2. General Halloween
    My idea which might of already been thought of, is to act like a fake dummy whatever you want to dress as, but instead of the traditional sit in a chair, act like a dummy that has fallen over, you can add a fake stand or something, then if someone tries to pick you up you can scare the hell out...
  3. General Halloween
    As some of you may recall, last year I had the good fortune of teaming up with fellow haunter and forum member lewlew on a collaborative haunt. It was an epic success, and there was little doubt we would attempt it again this year. Here is a thread to last year's build...

  5. General Halloween
    Some of my best memories are from years ago when I worked at a local haunted house As a 5'2 female, the people who ran the place would never give me the best roles and I always got stuck playing a screaming victim. Still better than nothing because even that was fun! I always used my creativity...
  6. General Halloween
    Hello friends! After some landscaping projects over the summer, I realized that my original plan for the backyard haunt this year needed to be adjusted. Not a big deal, I am up for the challenge. I believe I have made a nice sketch of what the path will look like, and where the scares will be...

  9. General Halloween
    I'm working on ideas for our garage haunt this year (3rd year - yay!) and I like to have a good scare for the final room. I'm thinking of a morgue set up with sheet covered bodies some with haunt actors and an animated prop but feel like I could do one better. I'm trying to avoid gore and PLEASE...

  12. General Halloween
    Hello All, I bet you have been wondering where I have been the past few weeks as I wasn't hanging out in the forums as I normally do just before Halloween. Well that is because I been working on a very large project since September and even earlier than that. This year I had two major...
  13. General Halloween
    I love to see scared little kids! The younger the better! They are just so cute when they think all the Halloween monsters are real! I used to scare my daughter with Halloween masks when she was a baby. She now loves everything Halloween just like me!
  14. General Halloween
    Instructions include: 1. Take the dogs for a run in the park. 2. Not realize they were rubbing themselves on poison oak! 3. Take them home blissfully unaware, pet them well .. It was a good run! 4. Touch your sweaty face with contaminated hands .. A lot, you're going for horrific effect here...
  15. Halloween Props
    I modified this grandmother clock that I found on Craigslist. I used servos for the hands and pendulum. The time between "scare" mode is adjustable by DIP switches on the controller board. The sound is provided by a WAV Trigger board with an SD card, and during ambient ticking mode, random...
  16. General Halloween
    Was watching some videos of people going through professional haunts for inspiration and after about 15 minutes noticed most (not all) of the haunts are someone in a mask popping out and screaming at the patron. So I watched a few other sites and basically the same thing, some even have a...
  17. General Halloween
    Anybody have things they do or have seen that are clever ways to scare children this Halloween? The classic faux scarecrow is always good. But I'm looking for some new things these kids might not see coming. Love to hear your methods.
  18. Halloween Costume Ideas
    I work as a clown for one of Oregon's leading haunts and have many years of experience as a clown haunter and thought I would start a thread purely for the clown as October is creeping closer. I'd love to hear what you have to say works best for you when getting a rise out of people through (a)...
  19. Halloween Props
    I found this on Amazon and got it in 2 days. Just walking near it freaks me out. I plan to put this near my from door on the night of my party. That way everyone will get a rush of adrenaline on the way in! Right now I have it just inside the door ready to scare my kids when they come home...
  20. REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    Hi, For my haunt this year, I wanted to make a section for a scare, where the monster can press a button, and have a strobe light go off with a sound effect while he jumps out to scare the audience. This is similar to what they do at Universal HHN in hollywood. Can anyone explain to me how to...
