Thank You All Members and Visitors! Halloween 2015
Halloween Season 2015 Is Here! NOW!


All Members and Visitors:
It is very important to me to reach out to you again and extend my gratitude to YOU.


Thank you for being an important part of the HalloweenForum.com community. It is our members that make this community beyond amazing. I really want to thank you for helping make this happen by being a member.


What New Members May Not Know
There are a lot of new members this year who may not know me.
My Name is Larry. I am the dude who created the site in 2002.
I also work with some amazing moderators that help a lot manage our community. Our moderators (in alphabetical order) DeadTed, Frankie's Girl, Halloweiner, Terra, UnOrthodOx and Ween12amEternal are amazing moderators and members. These amazing people really work hard and I personally could not applaud them enough. Our moderators are a big asset to our entire community.
Our moderators make things better for everyone. You would be amazed at the amount of spam and other issues that you never see because of their dedication.
Dear Moderators: I cannot thank you enough.


About Halloween Forum
I launched the forum n 2002. When it was launched, there really was not a lot of places on the Internet for us Halloween fanatics to hang out all year. The terms home haunter and home haunts really were not even used much yet.


Things have way better since then. There are members on every level. We have novice members that are just decorating for the first time, to home haunters building movie quality props. We also have many professional haunters, authors and the best of the best as well. The talent here is jaw dropping. Everyone is happy to help each other go to the next level.


As I have said many times before; It is our members that collectively make this such an amazing community. It is the contributions that each member posts that makes the community an amazing resource. I will always work to make this a better community for YOU! I like to think of our community as a large family. I do expect respect to our members.




Any Problems?
There may be issues that I am not aware of or cannot yet resolve. If ever you need anything, please feel free to ask myself, or one of our moderators. If you have a problem or issue, let me know. I cannot fix something that I am not aware is an issue. We want you here. We want you to feel comfortable and come back often.


If you have a problem, we are happy to help you out. If you become a problem, we will be happy to help you OUT. Luckily, we have very few troublemakers.

Actually, thank you, Larry. As you know, I've been with you here on the forum from the start. I've gone from a star performer slider at Queen Mary in Los Angeles to a psychopath on the streets of New York at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studio in Orlando Florida. For three years I had my own really successful home haunt that we called Rose's Haunted Graveyard where we entertained and scared hundreds of Halloween fanatics and handed out enough candy to make a dentist giddy. Along the way the Halloweenforum was always there. It's been a place to find camaraderie and encouragement. It's a place to brag about your accomplishments or tell the stories about your Halloween adventures that make this holiday worth the efforts in the first place. It's a place where you can say, "hey, there are other freaks out there just like me! Yay!" And then feel really good about it. If you can't find the right music, hey, no problem. Somebody on the forum will know where to find it. If you want to know how to build a certain prop, no worries. Someone on the forum has already built it and still has the plans. This place is better than a Jack O' Lantern's grin. Personally, I'm proud to have been part of all this since the beginning. And just so you all know, I'll haunt this site till I die...and afterwards too!

Thank you so much! I sure remember the beginning. You were a BIG part of the original growth. There were not nearly as many home haunters and big Halloween fans online back then.

Thank you Larry and moderators. Through this forum, my home haunt has gone from average dime store to EPIC annual Event. I've created things others have posted and built my own creations. Without the tutorials, feedback and reviews I'd be lost. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

As stated by others ,I too have been checking in here and/or posting here almost every day... until recently when I took on the extra task of trying to put a new roof on half of my Haunted house. (It's the" Low" Roof, it should have been easier,but with 5 layers of shingles and much rotted wood under them...it has not been as easy as it should have been.
The bottom row of ancient shingles were tucked in via a thinner wooden slat at the top and they were tiny little rectangles held on the roof by tiny square nails with very small heads?
I am so weary of wrestling tarps everyday!
As with so many things, I believe that the success of this forum began from the top. sometimes it's all about "Attitude",and i have always found that to be "Positive". Congratulations on creating this wonder full and useful tool for our Haunted communications.

Thank you Larry! I discovered this site a few years ago and had no idea how it all started. My Halloween would not be the same without it. I read daily (several times a day) and I'm so thankful to everyone who contributes. It's a great community and I hope it is around for many years to come

I think this forum has plenty to offer people who aren't doing haunts. Love the crafts, food, & party things people post!
