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 anything cooler than a fog machine? Okay, there might be cooler things. Anti-gravity chambers. Those mini hotdog machines that constantly rotate at a party. A padded cell with a trampoline for a floor. But a fog machine is definitely at the tippy top of the cool list. Whether you’re having a Halloween Dance or you’re scaring kiddos at a haunted house, your scene will always benefit from a little more atmosphere. Turn those regular Halloween decorations into scary Halloween decorations. Simply turn it on and watch the spook factor rise!
Step 1: Purchase an indoor/outdoor needle-punch carpet. To turn it into a circle: Mark the rug's center point with a Prismacolor white-colored pencil. Measure and mark the distance from that point to a spot about half an inch from the rug's edge. Cut a piece of string to that length. Tie one end of the string to the pencil and secure the other end of the string to the rug's center point with a tack. Pull the string taut and draw a large circle onto the rug; remove the string. Cut out the circle, just inside the white pencil mark, with sharp scissors.

The head and arms are made from a heavy weight plastic, not out of foam. They are full human size with the face being 8" from chin to top of forehead. There is a concealed stake included to keep the head from blowing away and both "arms" are stakes. It will be a great add to any creepy Halloween graveyard. Just add a little mulch around it to give the appearance of crawling out of the ground. The color is darker than the picture and I like it!
