Been absent on the forums for a while but hoping to change that this year. Here is the 2015 Blackstone Cemetery video which I FINALLY finished!! (Make sure you watch to the end as we had a special guest appearance!)

2015 Blackstone Cemetery

Check out my website for more photos, videos, how-to tutorials and more. (Still need to update the site and add photos not just from 2015 but 2014 as well. I know, slacker!!)

Always one of the best, Hector. Really love your new vampire mask this year. The gravedigger was great, as was Shaggy at the end. Nice touch. I liked the video showing the guy taking a selfie with you too. I've commented on this before but to me, your haunt stands out becauee of the rich atmosphere you create with the props and lighting. You don't rely on animation or special effects to wow people, just a perfectly balanced display that encompasses everything Halloween. Another job well done!

Wow, that's an amazing looking haunt! Everything looks professionally built and such attention given to every detail.

I really liked the broken tombstone with the grass/weeds growing up through it. And the big spider with the two victims.
Shaggy was great! A spot-on impersonation.

Fantastic job!

Thanks so much everyone for the kind words! I'm glad you all like it. My haunt doesn't change a huge amount from one year to the next (well, I notice the changes!) so it's sometimes a challenge to make the video different. I never expected to make a horror-comedy but it seems that was the direction this year for sure! LOL!

The gravedigger and Shaggy were played by my brother Allan Turner who really puts the "actor" in scare actor! He played Shaggy on Friday night and then the gravedigger on Halloween. All the kids went mad for Shaggy!

My vampire costume went over really well and I got asked for a ton of photos. My daughter also did a great job and stayed in character all night!

The only complaint I heard (from quite a few people) is that they were thinking, from the postcards I handed out prior and the online marketing, was that it was a full haunted house walkthrough not just a yard display.

PS The giant spiders - I have 2 the same - were bought from a manufacturer out of Buffalo who has since gone out of business. Too bad as they made some great stuff.
