  1. Aztec Death Whistle

    Maybe you have never heard - or even heard of - this amazing screaming whistle.


    The Aztec death whistle, sometimes described as “the scream of thousand corpses” produces a frightening sound.

    It was José Luis Franco who published the first (1971) drawings of the death whistle and his family of Mexican “aerophones with springs of air”.

  2. Who's at the Circus?

    A circus theme in a haunt certainly has a lot of potential.

    Beyond clowns, who might populate the circus? Who makes the circus happen?

    Carnies, for sure. The Roadies of the circus/carnival world. Carnies have a pretty unsavory reputation. The usual perception of them seems to be drug and alcohol abusing perverts, possibly pedophiles. Lots of opportunity for creepy carnies both male and female working carnival games, selling cotton candy and toys, whatever.

  3. Other Ames Illusions

    Here's a fun(?) video of Ames illusions from back in 1951. I think you can find inspiration here, too.


    How would you use these in a haunt?

  5. Walpurgisnacht or Half-o-Ween!



    It's almost time. In less than 30 days Halloween will be exactly 6 months away. May 1 - Mayday, AKA Halfoween. It's also Walpurgisnacht - when witches meet on the Brocken mountain and hold revels with the Devil. Coincidence?!?
