I'm Dave from Wiltshire, England. Been running a small home haunt for the past 3 or 4 years. Mainly home-built static props and light/sound effects mixed with some real life actors, as commercial Halloween props are scarce this side of the pond, and what little is available tends to be very poor quality.
OK..I admit it's become an addiction now and has at one point nearly cost my marriage when my 7ft tall Jason Voorhees prop fell over during transportation pinning my long suffering nearest and dearest to the floor.
I'm looking to get into animatronics now..hopefully without actually decapitating or maiming any family members or TOTT's.
I'll post some pictures of the haunt soon. (unfortunately without the Jason Voorhees prop which was dismantled under supervision the next day...).
