From my point and shoot and having to use flash. But the pro shoot pictures should be ready soon. I also took a quick video. These are the best I could do considering I was being paged on the walkie talkie for all sorts of things as I tried to at least get a few pictures!!!!

Entry Chamber, Vampire Coffin Room, Vampire Dinner Scene, Frankenstein's Lab, The Witches' Swamp, and the HUGE double level Cemetery..... all below. Look closely for our "actors"--- all former students.

The swamp was one of my favorite scenes. These photos do not do justice. Hanging in the vines (shredded Martha Stewart velvet curtains found at a yard sale) I used a couple dozen lanterns I had gotten from Dollar Tree (thanks to tips from the good people at HF!)

Haunted House 2014 055 Cemetery at night.jpg
Cemetery was GRAND FINALE as guests exited. It was on 2 levels, due to the fact we used the stage and space in front of stage.

Haunted House 2014 056 cemetery at end.jpg
For junior high and high schoolers, I think our actors did a good job. Can you spot all 3?

These are great! Some of my fondest memories are from the haunted houses and carnivals I went to at my schools every year. The kids will definitely remember it.

That turned out awesome. You've got some great looking props there. But my favorite has to be Bella Lugosi. Where did you get that? The pro pictures turned out fantastic too. Your school is lucky to have your help.

Your school is so lucky to have you! I was the only person to bring in a little bit of decorations to our class party, it sure was dull!
