What is it about Halloween that transforms ordinary people into seekers of anything dark and unknown? Cemeteries by night, horror films by day and one of the most popular and oldest Halloween traditions to date - the haunted house! A haunted house is defined as a building that is the center for supernatural occurrences or paranormal phenomena. To create these chilling and disturbing effects when designing your own haunted house, you’ll need some amazing animated special effect props that are sure to terrify. Here at Halloween Express, you’ll find the decorations and props needed that will give your haunted house the illusion that actors, animatronics, sound, lighting and other special effects bring to today’s haunted houses that make them such nightmarish venues. A good haunted house should terrify, shock and disorient its patrons and then have them laughing at their own fears upon exiting.
Is there any better way to set a spooky scene than by using a totally awesome fog machine? Create the eerie fog of your dreams with one of our fog machines from Spirit Halloween! Brew some magic of your own when you have the fog coming out of a large witch's cauldron, or set the scene for any zombie-filled graveyard. Make the scene all the more realistic when you get one of our low-lying fog machines, which are easier to keep out of sight and make the foggy illusion even more convincing. Is that a fog machine, or are the ghosts of the forgotten truly rising from their graves? Only you will know for sure!
It's that time of year: Halloween decorations are going up all over the neighborhood, and no self-respecting homeowner wants to be outdone! Skeleton decorations are planted in garden plots, light-up zombie graveyard decorations are staked into the ground, and Halloween tombstone decorations are carefully arranged along walkways to greet the party guests.
Get ready to scare up some screams! You'll love our scary yard decorations like zombies, witches, specialty skeletons, such as animals, pirates and even a mermaid, and so much more! We also have easy to hang, if you'll pardon the pun, decorations like the Hanging Scarecrow, the Severed Hanging Torso and the Giant Spider Web. If you're looking for the creepiest way to add a little ambiance to your haunted house, porch or Halloween party, look no further than our lighting and special effects department! From strobe lights, to metal luminaries and fog machines, we have exactly what you need to create a spooky scene.
Tempt your Halloween party guests with an array of candies masquerading as botanical or nautical artifacts. To begin, fill large glass jars with sweets, and then mark each jar with a label that sounds convincing—here, the meringues are "jellyfish skeletons"—while being completely made up. If you don't have a cabinet, you can create your own by arranging the jars in wooden cubbies or crates; we painted these a deep slate gray.
A large wooden plank is usually an obstacle. However, not this Halloween. A DIY Halloween door decoration this is not. This is a porch decoration. Spray paint and stencils is one way to create this spooky welcome sign. Or the letters can be purchased from a woodworking shop or other area and simply nailed on in the right order. These Halloween house decorations are quite a pop from the traditional ones found in stores, and can be painted in colors to reflect the personality of the family. Who wouldn’t want that?
