A pre-Halloween photo

I always like to take a night shot or two before Halloween to see how things are looking. It's not quite right yet but we still have few days to go.

This was picture was taken with a very old Canon Digital Rebel (1st gen). Need to see how things will look with the Nikon D90.

Trick 'r Treat [Blu-ray] (2008)

If you didn't get the Blu-ray addition of Trick 'r Treat, you're missing some good special features. The commentary by Dougherty, Burns, Wilkins and Pipes was great and really told the story behind the movie. The "Trick 'r Treat: The Lore and Legends of Halloween" was excellent as well.

It's also nice to have a digital copy that will play on our computer. Although a DRM-free version would have been better.

Hopefully this year more people will recognize my Trick 'r Treat scene and appreciate my Sam prop that I made TWO years ago.

ScareFX Wiper Motor Rocker Project Description

Quite a few haunters have asked about the inner workings of the Rockin' Granny Halloween prop.

I've put together a project description on the ScareFX web site.

I also posted a video of the "undressed" prop in action.

We received our newest mask yesterday. That was just in time for our adding it to our latest prop. The mask was made by Bump In The Night Productions and was purchased from Grim Reapers. It's called Maggot Buffet.
