Myself, I love Halloween. From the time I was 12 and scared a group of college kids off my grandparents porch, I have loved the season. I worked in a Professional Haunted House for 4 years and created every room from the butchers rooms, to Jeepers Creepers, and the Ring. I have been to Transworld (biggest Halloween tradeshow in the US) and I have seen it all.
Halloween when I was younger was about going around the block on Trick or Treat and getting scared by the spooky homes. It has turned into a sort of compilation of who can put the most blood and gore on display without being reported to the police by concerned neighbors. So, seeing what could be done and what should be done, I set out to create the spooky Halloween feel without any of the gore and blood, yet still be the best house in the city. I mean really, do you think i looks scary to see an arm and leg stuck in a spiderweb, or guts hanging out of every prop with blood all over?
I created a few steps here to try for to make your home flow with the theme in place and things to avoid making it look cheesy and fake.
I hope you enjoy the season and get a few helpful hints on how to create your own unique spooky atmosphere.
