Hi my name is Howard Smith aka Smitty. I have been lurking around here for about a month and figured I'd introduce myself. I always loved horror movies and that grew into a love of halloween. I have been running a home haunt for my kids halloween parties and for a halloween walk thru for about 7 years. I started with a crank ghost and a witch from a rotisseri motor and went on from there. I am already caught up in the pre halloween crazyness as I am sure everyone else is. I look forward to talking and sharing ideas with everyone.
