  1. General Halloween
    A walk through video of Canyon Trail Cemetery, our yard display located in the suburbs of Chicago. 30+ Pneumatic props along with a number of motorized and static props along with a full house façade, almost all of which were made by my Wife and me.
  2. Halloween Music
    I'm a huge fan of the holiday and the movie series so buying the soundtrack was a no-brainer for me. I just got it today and I wanted to pass along to any fellow haunters that might be interested that this soundtrack will be an excellent addition to a yard haunt or a haunted house. The whole...
  3. General Halloween
    Hi all! I bought a "spotlight" several years ago, but have never used it. I finally got my skeletons up into a tree in our front yard... and I thought it would be fun to shine a spotlight on them. So I put in a bulb, plugged it in... and it's really just a bare bulb. So it's super bright for...

    This will be the new attraction at the yard haunt this year. One side of the yard will be all graveyard, the garage will be an asylum with drop panels and the electric chair and then the other side of the yard will be the Graveyard keepers quarters with the new haunted cabin prop, fence and...

    Hi Gang! I know Dark Lord has helped me immensely in the past, but I'm looking for ideas or actual music for a haunted/abandoned farmyard/cornfield theme for my yard haunt.... Thanks in advance!!

    Hi guys, So in the spirit of my pumpkin sentinel and funeral hearse I found this perfect sign to go in my yard to drive the effect home. Never seen one like it and it's pretty impressive. Solid, sturdy wood and nice graphics and routering. That said, I want to "relic" it a bit more. How...
  8. Halloween Props
    This year I added bulk to my cemetery display by placing 3 "mausoleums" in the background. They were made by repainting Little Tikes kids' playhouses. My only expense for this project was the spray paint, and the bleach. I was able to put out an ISO call on our local FB swap groups and got 3...

    These are like amazing lights to light up your props or haunt. They are small 12V LED lights, different colors: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, and White... They are constructed with a metal body (anodized aluminum most likely) these lights are practically indestructible -- I mean if you drop it or it...

  11. Halloween Props
    For those who have multiple sounds coming from multiple props, what are you doing? Not talking about custom programming all hooked up to computer, etc. Just want to add sound to 2-3 props and have the speaker right by that prop. For example my rocking chair that moves, I want to have a speaker...
  12. Member Introduction
    I've been lurking for a while but finally settled on a username and decided to join. This year I decided to go much bigger on my yard, I'm working on a somewhat realistic giant spider with a 12' legspan and a creeper. I have a fairly small yard, so I'm limited on how much I can add, but if I end...

    I saw your posts about yards and that was all that I needed to join in with you. Oh, yes you want an introduction first. (I'm playing with these these posting features :confused:, so please bear with me. ) I live in Chester County, PA. My yard at this time of year is called "Uwchlan Haunt...
  14. Halloween Props
    I picked up a skeleton from Spririt the other day, but it is way too cute for my yard. I am looking into converting him into a groundbreaker and would like him to have a greyish corpse look to him similar to the below pictures. I've seen some posts about using plastic wrap and a heat gun to...

    The Skeleton King is 12' tall at the top of his head. They all have 9v 10mm green LED eyes. Scarab

    Everyone always asks me how can I afford all my decorations. For one, I go to yard sales all summer, and I also make so many things. Like I'm sure all of you guys. Last night I made this. From an old frame I got at a yard sale. 2.00 Frame 2.98 Gauze 5.99 Skull 2.00 Hands at dollar store...
  18. General Halloween
    Things are starting to ramp up. As some of you know, I maintain a pumpkin patch in my backyard. This year I am really emphasizing my pumpkin display near my front door. I pretty much have my pumpkins set-up, now I just need to scary it up a little with lights and spiders. My goal is to get this...
  19. Halloween Props
    Hi everyone, for my first post (long time silent observer) I wanted to share the tail end of my hearse build. Now, first thing's first: I needed wheels. Because there was no way I was going to attempt this without having the coach wheels ready to go. So I found mine at a few different At Home...
