  1. Serial Haunting


    There are probably few people out there who remember going to the Saturday morning matinees at the local cinema and watching the serials. Each week, moviegoers could enjoy a new chapter in an ongoing saga. These days, the closes thing we get are TV series with an overarching story arc, like Breaking Bad or The Walking Dead.

    What has this got to do with haunting? It has to do with keeping your guests intrigued

  2. A Scourge of Vampires

    Not to be confused with a malignity of goblins, a scourge of vampires is a bunch of the bloodsuckers. This entry is about a bunch of KINDS of vampire like monsters from Asia.

    If your idea of a vampire begins and ends with a Hungarian dressed like a head waiter, this might open up some new ideas for you! If your image of a vampire *sparkles*, you may have stumbled into the wrong forum.

    Vampire-like figures have a long history in the mythology of Asia.

  3. YouTube Science! Part 9 - Jacob's Ladder!

    A Jacob's Ladder is probably the easiest, simplest high voltage display. It can also be extremely dangerous.
    There is always at least one in any cinematic mad science lab. I have seen some sets with several! Typically, these are naked, with nothing to prevent the unwary from touching an electrode.
    Nevertheless, it's a high impact build anyone can do. Acquiring the transformer is the hardest part.

  4. Touch it. TOUCH IT!

    We all know the rule:
    Touch nothing and nothing will touch you.

    But, what if we decided to make everything so it NEEDED to be touched to get the full effect?

    In a blackout haunt, various textures and effects could be added to the walls. It almost wouldn't matter what they were, so long as they were unexpected and safe to touch. Why stop there? it might be freaky to unexpectedly touch fur on the wall, but what if it was "breathing"?

  5. YouTube Science! Part 8 - Van Der Graaff!

    You've probably see the Van Der Graaff generator making people's hair stand comically on end. It can also produce some impressive arcs.

    Budding mad scientists might want to include just suck a machine in their display!



    Happy Haunting!
