    Halloween Props
    One of the sure signs of spring seems to be that the head count on the Halloween Props forum skyrocket. There are 411 folks out there right now looking at the same stuff we are. We're pretty sure we're all out there looking to get ideas and help on what we're hoping to make this year. We hope...
  2. 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...
  3. Interactive Cauldron

    General Halloween
    Has anyone ever cast “pretend” spells in a cauldron to entertain trick or treaters on Halloween? Last year we put dry ice in our cauldron, pretending to cast a poison Apple spell, but I’m looking for something a bit more reactive or interesting this year.. Anyone have any ideas or thoughts on...
  4. Mechanical: trick or treaters

    Halloween Props
    This was a experamental kid of prop that i did this year to see if kids would try to steal it or if people would like it. What i used was a standing ghost that someone was throwing away. I also used a gemmy giggle buddy he activates and says cute frazes when someone claps. The story of him is...
  5. Did Anyone Catch Any Orbs On Halloween Photos?

    Paranormal and the Unexplained
    On some of our Trick Or Treat photos, there are many orbs, others hardly any. I wonder if it's because we live not too far from the town cemetery. They almost seem to be following the trick or treaters...
  6. Looking for video clips for mirror haunt

    Wanted to Buy
    Hi All, Planning on building a mirror prop with a two way mirror and the sprite video player from frightprops. Does anyone have or recommend clips that that would go well for this? Would like to have the clip triggered with a foot pad when the trick or treaters approach the mirror for candy. :)

    Here are a few pics of this years Halloween party. I live in the middle of nowhere so I don't get trick or treaters. We only decorate for an annual party every year. More pics in the album.
  8. Who sets up, knowing you'll have zero trick or treaters?

    General Halloween
    We moved "back" into the country last year, and we know that we won't get any trick or treaters. We won't even be home for it. We go to a friend's neighborhood where the houses are close together and more kid-friendly.
  9. Ghost Stories

    Halloween Music
    I was hoping some one out there could link me to some ghost stories without background sounds. They will be for my talking head. He will be entertaining trick or treaters as they walk threw the grave yard. Thank you for any Ideas.

  12. Live video of trick or treaters

    General Halloween
    Hello. I'm looking to watch a live feed of my trick or treaters getting scared by my props as they walk to my door. I was hoping to get a really easy setup. Is there a camera that I can hook directly up to my tv to watch live? I'm not looking for anything difficult since I'm not very good...

  14. out in the middle of nowhere

    General Halloween
    So I am gathering from reading forums and blogs that a lot of you have large crowds that come around on Halloween? I am not sure what it says about me that I live out in the country with few neighbors and NEVER get any trick or treaters (except the grandkids) and decorate just to please myself...
