    OK... so after several phone calls and basically giving up and resigning myself to the fact that I would have to call my credit card and get a refund my horn finally arrived this morning. Great right! WRONG! Opened the box and in it was a piece of crap. Wires disconnected, lights not working, horn that is WAY below the quality of what they were showing at the booth in St. Louis and not near as loud and for $380 bucks not even a battery charger?!! WTF is wrong with these people? Im making a shirt that says Shot in the Dark SUCKs and wearing it to the next show. Anyone who is thinking about buying from them... dont. Email me instead and I will send you as many pics and info as you need to make your own piece of crap and it wont cost you near as much.

    Along with Flavorus, apparently. I also wouldn't be surprised if Pickle volunteered to moderate some of your pages.

    Btw, why does SITD have such a good rating? I've only ever heard that they suck.

    Hey BrotherMysterio,

    Sorry, but Pickle nor any other 3rd parties moderate any of our vendor profiles or anything else on HauntersDigest.com. We don't take money for promoting vendor profiles or altering their ratings. Those ratings are based on the reviews of the people that take a few seconds to rate and post their experiences with that vendor good or bad. If that vendor has a good or bad rating, that's because that's what people have voted them. If you've had a bad experience with them, then please feel free to visit their profile and post that feedback and rating. Looking at the profile for SITD, their rating is at 3.4 out of 5 which I wouldn't say is that great.

    We've just posted a vendor profile for Flavorus as well at http://www.hauntersdigest.com/vendor/flavorus/. So if anyone has had a experience with them, good or bad, please visit their profile and rate them.

    The only way that anyone will know about a vendor being a great or poor vendor is by former customers taking a moment to rate them to help others either avoid them or encourage them to feel safe doing business with them. And that company is free to post any reply's to feedback on their profiles. We like to only promote those Vendors that have 5 stars and a great reputation. We do that as a reward to those vendors that take pride in their service and products. Not because someone paid us to or for any other reason.

    Hey,
    How'd I get drug into this? I never had any dealings with SITD...but unfortunately their customer service is looking a little questionable but I can't speak from experience since I've had none with them. While customer service & communication are pet peeves of mine (not just the haunt/vendor biz but ALL biz) please don't drag me into any additional forum "fights" I have enough on my plate dealing with these DUMB TV shows!!! LMAO

    After months of waiting ours showed up, in pieces in a box, bent, lights fallen off, it made a soft sick dying sound, it seemed very different from what we saw at the show too. I really wanted to have a horn or two out there so I went over to pep boys and picked up an auto air horn for about $40 and hooked it up to one of our lesser preforming air cannons(with lower pressure of course). It worked great!! I had the 12v compressor that came with the pep boys air horn laying around so i switched it out with the one that came with the Shot in the Dark unit....Now it sounds like the one I ordered...lol

    still not thrilled with the way our order arrived though.

    I almost ordered the spark gloves from them in August and I'm glad I didn't now. This isnt the first time I've heard bad things about them.

    I thought it took penicilin to cure SITD's?


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax. These posts have been made by professional post makers, do not try this type of posting on your own without extensive training, lovely assistants and a trusty clown horn.
