  1. DJ Lights for lighting up trees

    General Halloween
    A few years ago when I attended Nightmare New England (pro haunt attraction), they lit up a section of trees with a very cool lighting effect. I'll briefly describe it but I doubt I'll be able to find the device that produced it. It would shoot random white points of light at the canopy and then...
  2. Neighbors who are complete A**holes

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Seems like there's always some complete A**hole in every sub. But why do they always end up being my neighbors? A few years ago we were fortunate to be able to by a house for my daughter while she attended college. It was a nice little house in a huge sub, but still close to campus. Almost...

    We all love the Big H here, but most everyone has their own list of Halloween-related things they've never done. Maybe you've never bobbed for apples, or taken a ghost tour, or carved a pumpkin? Here's my list: I've never: Attended or hosted a Halloween Party Traveled to a Halloween...
  7. Hickory Grove 2018

    General Halloween
    Wow, what a season. I am certainly sad to see over with. That amazing feeling of all the work culminating to that faithful night pure joy. It does warm my heart when the neighbors are encouraging and appear genuine in the praises they gave this year. Unfortunately, I was taking a final during...
  8. my haunted cemetery 2018

    General Halloween
    My haunted cemetery on halloween night. We didnt get as many trick or treaters as we hoped (and ironically I did all this to try to attract more trick or treaters to our street.) Also, I had a fogger but the controller is wired to it and I didnt have a remote. So I had no way to generate any...
  9. My 2017 Halloween Display

    General Halloween
    Hi, I never got around to posting my last years display. It went down well, got some nice comments on the night and even made a couple of kids run back to their parents crying. I know that sounds cruel, but secretly I was a little proud. Most the ToT's are small children dressed up, but I did...
  10. What is this strange obsession?!

    Member Introduction
    Hey there, Kaz here from Melbourne Australia. Have done a variety of parties over the years, but last year was our first bigger public trick or treat haunt. We had a zombie scare area, a blood room, a witches corridor and a child friendly glow in the dark radiation zone. Turns out more...

  13. Lighting: Black Lights

    Halloween Props
    I have a very bright street light across the street, it lights up my yard quite a bit. There is no way to block it out, so I need some fairly strong black lights for a few of my decorations. Where are the cheapest place to get them and what do you recommend? LED?:mad:
  14. Projection Question?

    Halloween Props
    I know this subject has been addressed may times, and I have read most if not all the threads that apply. Alas, I have been unable to find the answer to my question. I also realize its a little late in the season so this will be a next year display item, But hoping I can convince "Santa" to...
  15. Neighborhood haunts on the decline?

    General Halloween
    Lately it's been hard to find anybody else in the area (besides myself) who decorates outdoors for Halloween. I might have blamed it on the hurricane if I hadn't noticed a steady decline of Halloween spirit over the past 5 years or so. Where I used to see a haunt in one street out of 25 or so...

  20. Help! Floodlight/Spotlight?

    General Halloween
    I can't believe I'm all the way down to the wire once again and haven't solved my lighting problem. This happened last year, I decided to just leave the side and front lights on but the house right before me is always unlit, I'm at the end of a street facing a busy street so I think kids just...
