  6. Atmosphere Effects: Security walkie talkie with running soundtrack

    Halloween Props
    So I just came up with a cool idea for a prop but it will require a lot of prep work on my part. My home haunt is based on the idea that we are the ground level entrance for a large underground zombie research center.

    This year I finally got around to building this prop. I'm gonna try to post a how-to within the next couple of days. The setting is in a 'security office' at the end of our asylum haunt. There are two other major scares in the room.
