  1. Jack the Ripper theme

    General Halloween
    Hey everyone, we're in the planning stages of our haunt this year. We're thinking about doing a Jack the Ripper theme. There isn't a whole lot out there that I can find of other haunts doing this theme. I have spoken to a few folks though, and if anyone HAS done a Jack the Ripper theme, I'd love...
  2. Zombie Rave or Area 51 Theme?

    General Halloween
    Hey everyone I'm just settling on which theme to pick this year, last year's was supposed to be a Haunted pirate ship but a few things came up so I wasn't able to do a haunt. I'm debating whether to go for an Area 51/Aliens kinda theme, green lights and fog OR a 90's themed zombie rave in the...
  3. 5th annual creepy backyards woods

    Member Introduction
    So the kids roped me into doing another Halloween party so we can scare them with a haunted trail. We love the month of September and October as our garage gets turned into the prop build space. We have to amp it up this year because they are now teenagers and not so easy to spook. Challenge...
  4. Who has the best price on lighted blowmold pumpkins?

    General Halloween
    I know some people hate em, but they're turning out to be a key part of my display, and I need a few more. I bet that Wally World will end up being the cheapest option in my neck of the woods. Typically you'll pay $10 for a 9 or 10 inch lighted pumpkin. I found these last night at Lowe's for...

    Member Introduction
    Rick here. I am new to the forum, but not to the haunt industry. I own the Woods of Darkness haunt in Michigan. We have been around for ten years now, and started as a haunted hayride, morphed into a haunted barn, and now use army trucks to ferry our customers to the woods where the haunt is...
  6. Unsolved Mysteries devil worship episode?

    Horror Discussion
    Anyone remember an episode where two guys are watching tv and hear a noise, so they go outside and in the woods. It goes to a cabin and shows people in hoods and dogs. I can't find it anywhere.

  12. The Hunt

    Literature and Role-Playing
    -The Rhine, 1214- Spear, check. Sword, check. Crossbow and bolts, check. Wilhelm was ready for the hunt. He left his home at sunset, with knowledge that it would be easier to find the beast at night, creeping into the woods. He held his helmet in the crook of his arm so he could stay alert for...
  13. Anyone Else Recall This?

    General Halloween
    Don't ask me why, but as I was working on a Scarecrow/Jack O'Lantern prop this morning, my mind pulled up something from about 20 years ago, at least... It seems that a small Mid-west town was considering cancelling Halloween because some guy was running around in the woods impersonating Jason...
  14. Clowns in the news

    General Halloween
    I'm going to cut my grass and set up my cemetery today wearing a clown mask. The media that this clown mask is getting is funny (outside of the one that was allegedly trying to get kids into the woods).

  16. My Saturday morning visitor .,

    Off-Topic Stuff
    Saturday morning was open for Archery season here. As I sat and watched the sun rise from my blind, this little guy came lumbering in to eat his fill of corn. :D Maybe 80 - 90 lbs, really goofy little bear. He hung with me all morning, so no deer came in, but it was fun to watch him. Love being...

  19. Lighting for pathway thru woods

    Halloween Props
    I made a pathway thru some woods in my backyard and I lined it with mason jars and a led flicker bulb inside them about every 10 feet. While it looks really good, it's just not enough ambient light to light the pathway and keep people safe and let them see where they're going. Has anybody done...
