I was searching for halloween volcanoes (don't ask) and came upon the website for the Lindamood family where I found their Tiki Halloween 2005 webpage. They had a volcano that spewed actual fire from the top it appears. Then checked out their other yearly haunt photos from 2002 to 2013. Thought I'd share. Pretty funny stuff. Should kind of expect...that when you describe your family as being "the purveyors of fine children since 1945"...you will have a kind of warped sense of humor. LOL. Here's a background on the family.

Anyway I'm not usually into political themed haunts but they have done a few years of them and have a lot of fun poking fun at that scene. If you are political the humor will depend on which side of the aisle you are I guess. They also have done a few themes that are not political in nature. The family clearly likes playing with fire. The real stuff, not just the political. Saw at least two years (tiki and Lord of the Rings themes) that employed it. Sadly I don't see anything posted after 2013 and hope they are all well and didn't burn down the house or get run out of their neighborhood!

Here's a link to their Halloween Haunt themes: Lindamood Halloween Haunts

What a great house BTW. Love the design of the porch and balcony.


Here's a few ideas from things in their photos that caught my attention. That pirate theme ship's bow maiden from Dead Men Tell No Tales I think was done from one of those alien female styro heads. I thought she turned out great. Their tea party finger sandwiches might be on one of my menus some day. The stockbroker on the roof and the teller candy window from the Nightmare on Wall Street really turned out great. Wonderful idea using a sliding drawer and creating a teller window around it just to pass out candy. Hippie Halloween - Free Love, Free Candy -- now I remember the psychedelic screen at a Jefferson Airship concert I was at back in the 70s. Brought back memories. I do think these were haunts that for the most part were targeted to the adults escorting their kids and wonder what the kids thought.

Had fun looking at this! Hope these people are still doing well, nice to see how they carried on their tradition for years, wonder why they stopped though.

After reading through the family member links I see that the grandparents had passed away in the 80s and EB Lindamood the kids father passed away in the late 70s. Mom is still around. So guessing the haunts were put on by their kids all of whom have grown up and have families of their own and moved across the country. Kind of an interesting read while I'm waiting for the postman to deliver my Skully Zombie prop--who just showed up BTW! yeah. Wonder if the kids came back home at halloween time to set this up each year. What a great way to remember them. Wish I had more photos from when I was a kid at halloween time.
