Sybil the Clairvoyant...

About five years ago Mr. Chicken created a Madame Leota prop for his yard haunt.  It turned out fantastic and I’ve wanted to build my own ever since (yeah, I know, I’m a procrastinator).  Well, things have just gotten a little bit easier for me because Mr. Chicken has just taken care of a big portion of it for me, and boy does it look good.     Sybil the Clairvoyant is a new video projection effect kit offered by Mr. Chicken that includes the video as well as the head form you’ll need to get started.  The dvd includes two versions of the video projection, one which is just the head, the other includes the head and some eerie ghosts floating above Sybil for added effect.  The kits cost $55.00 plus $10.00 for shipping. I must admit, when I checked it out I figured I wouldn’t like it because, let’s face it, Madame Leota is a pretty tough benchmark to beat, but boy was I wrong.  Mr. Chicken has done a great job here, this video looks and sounds great, but what really makes it work is that it’s completely fresh content. Nobody’s ever seen Sybil before and I can guarantee you it’ll be more than just a head turner at your haunt.  Don’t get me wrong, I still plan on making a Madame Leota (one of these days), but until then, it’s really nice to have Sybil the Clairvoyant as an...

Pepper’s Ghost: Behind the Scenes...

There’s nothing better than a good Pepper’s Ghost effect, and there’s few things harder to find than a good Pepper’s Ghost tutorial.  I’ve watched several really shoddy videos describing the effect, but the one that Robert Schuch created provides a pretty straightforward explanation even though it’s designed for use with miniatures.  It’s a really simple effect to create, but doing it on a large scale can prove to be tricky due to the need for the large reflective surface.     For a little additional insight, take a look at the video below of Rolly Crump explaining the Pepper’s Ghost effect courtesy of the Walt Disney Family Museum, it’s definitely worth a watch.  ...

Kindred Moon Productions 2013 Additions...

Kindred Moon Productions has added eight new DVD’s for 2013 to their Haunted Halloween Projection Series.  At $34.99 each, these DVD’s can be projected onto a window, a wall, a screen, or even used on a video screen or television to create a picture effect.                  ...

Mr. Chicken’s Haunted Tombstones...

If you’re a fan of projection effects then you should definitely check out Mr. Chicken’s Haunted Tombstones.  All you’ll need is the projector of your choice and a piece of styrofoam to carve your blank tombstone.  Oh, and of course, you’ll need to purchase the video files for the Haunted Tombstone Projections. You can purchase either the short tombstone or the taller tombstone, or as a set to be projected side by side.  The download includes four video files allowing for standard definition or high definition playback in either portrait or landscape orientations, all in .MP4 format. It’s a pretty easy effect to pull off, especially considering the tombstone that you carve for it will be custom sized to the projection, and at $25 apiece ($50 for the set), you can’t go wrong.        ...

Intended for use with a projector, flat panel monitor, or with a scrim or reflective surface for a great Pepper’s Ghost effect, they’re a welcome addition to an already great lineup of videos.      ...

VexFX – Ghost Steps...

Fans of the Walt Disney World Haunted Mansion are no doubt familiar with the ghostly footprints effect that is projected early on in the ride in the M.C. Escher style room with the upside down stairways.  Since approximately 2010 I’ve seen the good folks over at HalloweenForum.com hashing out various ways to achieve this effect, but it appears that VexFX have actually made it a reality.  With the Ghost Steps routine it is now possible for home haunters to project a set of ghostly footprints in a pre-programmed path of their choice that actually dissolve after a few seconds.  You can download the flash based app for offline use, or navigate to their site and create your Ghost Steps on the fly.  You can change the size, color, rotation and style of footprint as well as move and rotate the projection surface to get it completely accurate to the surface you’re projecting onto.  This software is too cool to pass up, and is a visual delight....

Fairvale Funeral Parlor...

  Last week I was reminded of an album that I overlooked last year, Fairvale Funeral Parlor by Shadow’s Symphony, and the timing of this could not have been any better.  It’s now going on seven days straight with overcast skies and rain where I live, and there’s seven more in the forecast.  I cannot think of a better soundtrack to accompany this miserable stretch than Fairvale Funeral Parlor.  With 21 tracks of ominous and creepy melodies that tell the tale of a deserted funeral parlor, this album is everything you could ever want if you find beauty in the darker side of things.  This eerie offering could easily be incorporated into any home haunt. It’s available via digital download from Amazon and the iTunes store as well as direct from the Shadow’s Symphony Facebook store.  Whether you plan on using this in your haunt, or just listening to it while you sit on the couch watching the rain come down, this album is the perfect soundtrack for any haunter’s life....
