Hello Fellow Haunters!

I am pretty proud to announce that I just launched my first Kickstarter project today and its Haunted House Related! I started building the moulds for these kits 3 months ago and finally got the project approved to go live! I know this isn't a 100% original concept, but this will be a mass-market (hopefully) production ready item made with cast resin components and available to the zombie loving masses!

Anyway, I'm posting here because I need your support. I need to get as many people as possible to know about this project in order to make it a success. As you may know, Kickstarter is a funding platform, not an online store, in order to make the project feasible we need to hit a target funding goal, if the target is not hit, we don't get to produce these.

SO..... I would LOVE it (and in fact, consider this begging or pleading) for my fellow haunters to simply post a quick message on their Facebook or Twitter pages telling their fans about the project, simply use this link below in the post to link right to the project on Kickstarter

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/960839881/zombie-emergency-kit-in-case-of-zombies-break-glas

ANYONE THAT DOES THIS WILL GET A FREE LARGE FORMAT WALKING DEAD POSTER - Yup, you heard me, if you post this project on your fan page or twitter page, reply to this post with the URL of your Facebook page or twitter page (or blog etc), I will PM you for your mailing address (US or Canada only) and will send you out one of these, absolutely free:

16226

This is an 18x24" Walking Dead fan art poster created by a talented digital artist. Again, post a link on your facebook page or twitter page, reply to this post and I will get in touch to send you a poster, FREE!

Thanks all for helping me out, us haunters are a tight knit group and we need to stick together!

Has anyone ever had any success with this from the haunt industry? Larry

Hey Larry,

I would say no, I have followed kickstarter for a while, and haven't seen any haunt projects, a few zombie related or horror related products, but nothing haunt related. I will likely make an effort to change that if this goes well!

Only haunt project I've seen on KS is one called Hauntbox, which doubled their funding goal. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1020117671/hauntbox

I thought I saw a vendor at Transworld that already made those "In case of Zombies, break glass" kits. He had different ones with different weapons - Uzi, Pistol, Machine gun and Shotgun. I know I have seen similar items on ebay - http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0&_nkw=in+case+of+zombie+break+glass&_sacat=0&_from=R40

Cool idea though and cool products on the Kickstarter page.

I've actually thought about a kickstarter-backed haunt but I'm not sure a FULL haunt would make it. I've seen people like the Radley Haunt and smaller "show-type" haunt related kicks get funded.

Radley is a home haunt and is AMAZINGLY detailed. This guy is gonna go FAR!! >> http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/radleyhaunt/the-radley-haunted-house-2012-family-roots-0?ref=live

Nyctophobia tried and I'm sad they didn't succeed with kickstarter but I DO think they ended up opening despite that >> http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/EricStriffler/nyctophobia-haunted-house?ref=search

It looks VERY cool and I love how the video mentions the actual process of creating the product. Good luck my friend!
