Here it is, a making-of video of the haunted hotel. Some other people took lights-off videos of the actual haunt but I have yet to see if any of those videos came out OK. I'll post them to this thread if they did.


Here are related threads:

(yes the lurching gentleman gave up his costume to an actor and went nude in the actual haunt)

The Frightideas talking skull was kind of a last-minute addition (I really intended to use that prop for next year) but I think the "Be Our Guest" song clip was especially appropriate. It works quite a bit differently than the Scary Terry skull does (the animated sign uses a Scary Terry skull). I found that it actually seems to work better if you DON'T use a seperate tone track for the mouth. (That's because the FI mouth closes very quickly once the tone is gone, while a Scary Terry skull mouth stays open for quite a while.) The downside is that you would need a pretty clean audio voice track for the FI skull to work right while Scary Terry can work very independently from the sound track.

Wow, I remember you (I think it was you) talking about doing a haunted hotel. It sounded like a cool idea. And I must say you really pulled it off great. Everything was set up really well for effects and it all looked like great fun. Loved the roaches.

Really enjoyed my return online visit to the Sausilto City Haunt. Always enjoy my brief Halloween stay! Uncle Creepy, the bell boy came out terrific. Enjoyed my elevator ride. How did you get the audio for the old fashioned elevator? Very nice job on it and I'm old enough to remember riding in some elevators with those controls (probably still in some of the older buildings in Chicago) so the sound was quite a flashback. Your dining talking head was a nice routine. Loved his eye movement. And nice job using the AtmosFear Creepy Crawlies DVD for the bathroom scene. Unexpected scene to say the least and nicely done. Can see why the kids liked it so much. How was the turnout? We had nice weather in the south bay so thinking you did too. Thanks for the tour!

Elevator audio was compiled from audio from several youtube clips, including the sound effect from when the Millenium Falcon breaks down on Empire Strikes Back.
Yep toilet humor is always very popular with the kids. You can get a free old toilet from any plumber.
My guess is maybe 120 people came through (8 people every ten minutes for 2 1/2 hours).
