    The cards are a cool idea. I will have to think about ordering those. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to see any of the ghost masters in person. A couple of years ago a theater hired me...

    I too would give serious thought to the idea of "biting" people's legs. Not only would it be easy for someone to be tripped, it leaves the actor in a very vulnerable position if a startled person...

    Sorry to hear about the health issues of your family and that you are closing down Rayliff Manor. I am sure that California will bring new adventures and new opportunities. Wishing...

    A few thoughts. First of, depending on the context and length of time you have in front of your audience, four personalities may be difficult to convey well. I also wonder if a mute little girl...

    As Allen said, you will want to check with the county, and the city if applicable. For that kind of set up, you will also want to check with the Fire Marshal, as most industrial/warehouse type...

    Up here in the NW, I have heard both dressing and stuffing, but stuffing is more common. Whatever it is called, you won't find it at my house this year, as we have gone Primal.

    I have given this top a lot of thought, and several things occur to me.

    1- First off, as several others have pointed out, it is not necessarily all about scares, but about entertainment. That is...

    I take a similar approach. My philosophy on haunting, for what it is worth, is to take your guest through a range of emotions. Make them laugh, creep them out, make them scream, rinse and repeat. ...

    Hey Allen,

    I will probably be presenting at the West Coast Haunters Convention as well. I was supposed to last year, but ended up hurting my back and couldn't make it. I was actually already...

    Hey guys,

    As the season winds down and I begin to look towards next season (I know, I should finish this one first, but I can't help myself) I am thinking that I need to learn to help out more in...

    Let me be clear upfront, I am writing this rant largely to vent, any advice however, would be appreciated. Also, I am not blaming anyone in particular here. The idea is not to air dirty laundry,...

    Could there be an angle?

    I was approached about the Groupon thing yesterday and after a few minutes thought, I turned them down. I would lose too much on each sale to make it a reasonable option. There is a case where I...

    I think of a theatrical/storytelling haunt as each room being an act in a small play. Each act can be as long as you want, throughput not withstanding. I actually really enjoy doing this kind of...

    We are doing a haunt this year in just over 1000 square feet. I think it is possible to go small, and while there are quite a few disadvantages, there are some advantages as well.

    One year I was working in a dark maze portion of a haunt. People would walk in from a well lit area and, pretty much without exception, stop cold. I have good night vision to start with and after...

    There is a product that we used to use in a dark maze that was made to feel like slime, but wouldn't come of on the fingers. I think it was a silicon mix, but I can't remember what it was called. ...

    I have also been considering something along these lines. Not so much a sideshow, but a museum of the strange. Perhaps themed around torture devices. At the end I am thinking about doing a themed...
