    with Walt Disney and over exposed on my mind
    and too much mountain dew to get to sleep
    I thought i might inspire with a Haunted Hooch thread
    or at least show off a little of our swagger

    this is something we did way back and is a HH classic now...
    i could see it fit nicely into a place like haunted overload
    or maybe your haunted house
    this is a 200 year old oak tree that we dressed up a lil
    an actor with cables made his eye lids blink and his mouth move
    and armed with a mic heckled patrons as they passed
    with material like get off my nuts etc etc...ahhh good times

    I think it would be cool if all the haunts could find their 1980s, 1990's and to present photos and post them.

    Lets see how they transform over decades

    That'd be killer Larry! I wished my hard drive didn't crash, I'd show a nice range of my parties

    They weren't no "Darkness" sets by no means, but man you can sure tell a difference. They started looking nice for a party in the end. Too bad I quit a few years ago.

    Ohh btw: Love the tree I lol'd about the "nuts"

    the year was 1990 and we were in the concert business as was Dave Faukman..
    thats right i am about to show off preScarefactory and all the spin offs that followed

    anyways it was a guillotine were the head once again heckled the crowd before and after the decapitation
    the eyes and mouth both moved with air and the valves were hand controlled so the guy running the mic could say anything he wanted and keep the mouth in time...
    just a steal frame head with actuators a mask and Velcro... the guillotine was enormous and made just the same way we do it today..all 100 year old oak and a stainless blade..
    the head once cut off hung from 550 cord and swung towards the crowd..
    everyone thought it was great. now its like a trophy in my office

    i think this guy (slim pickens)came next.. actually not but i cant find a pic of the one before him named maggy otts..
    which we used a spring instead of a pneumatic. and he fly up super fast..
    soo they laid on the ground infront of a tombstone that said maggy otts
    and were covered with wet rice...soo when they flew up it thew wet sticky rice on the patrons...
    which looked like maggots... definitely the good old days

    Jake all i could find is vid of walking right past it..
    i cant find any of it in action
    i'm sure its out there somewhere
    i'll keep looking because its hilarious


    Larry i agree and plan too

    Frightener i know right..
    and its just one after another joke like like that....

    sooo heres something interesting about the last pic..
    on the left is a horse head skull that we glued big sharp teeth
    and spikes on his nose...and all down his back
    what you cant see is
    he is a total prehistoric looking skeleton wired together..
    when the crowd approached an actor would rattle the bones to kick off the show
    and when people looked at the skeleton..
    maggy otts would fly up..
    throwing wet rice
    then the actor fly's up from right behind them
    man it takes me back...

    Ahh yes...The Tree...then the head...and If i remember right Tim, there was a Deers head that did the same thing in later years...however, each one of those has called me Gillian and Don Knotts....was a good time indeed
    Jesus loves you, but everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

    yes yes the talking deer head was hilarious too

    a steel frame with a tanned deer hide n glass eyes ..
    it was a hand puppet with your actor behind the wall
    on the mic with one liners like u want some deer meat ??
