For the last two year's, we have created a graveyard scene in our yard, but this year we are going to create the Vampire's Lair - basically a haunted house with a vampire theme. Since I have never done a haunted house before, does anyone have any good, simple but scary suggestions that I could include? I'm pretty good at creating effects and props, as long as they don't require electrical wiring. So far what I have planned is to created spooky hallways with rats, haunted portraits on the walls, lots of spider webs. Every once in a with the halls will open into a small room - one will be a dungeon and another the vampire's lair. I have a skeleton that will be chained to the wall of the dungeon, and of course, a coffin, vampire, bats, etc in the lair. I also plan to use compressed air and silly string for sudden and unexpected surprises as the TOTers go through the "house". I would love to read your ideas and suggestions to help perpetuate this year's theme!
