    Lots and lots of work has been completed ... the upstairs is now about 85% where it needs to be. Our animated wheel chair FX is almost done and looking awesome. The room itself is pretty much done missing lighting and some props Unit 70 is making. The sawzilla room check out this awesome control panel we made with real blinking lights and everything... it will also have three TV's showing security monitors from same DVD we sell on www.hauntedhousesupplies.com

    Also coming along on Terror VIsions as you can see the FARTING clown you are seeing the back side... you walk under it and he farts on you! LOL

    The Green house is almost done just a bit more paint and btw this room is off the chart right now. Also one photo of the Medusa room as we finally started it today.

    Listen I'm just going to say it... the job we did this time around is AWESOME and this will be HANDS DOWN the best thing you do during the SHOW NO DOUBT IN MY MIND! I don't even know how many haunts if ANY that can do or did what we've done here... its off every single chart known to haunt kind. LOL

    Its so detailed, so over the top, so nutty no one would even try it... we've topped ourselves on every single level! NO PHOTOS I send can do it justice because it needs to be lit up and it needs a better camera with wider angles to take them correctly. I'm just telling you RIGHT NOW IF YOU PASS UP THE OPPORTUNITY to check out the new Darkness you should flat out without question shoot yourself in the foot... you will walk through the most amazing haunt youv'e ever seen ever anywhere. Its on that level I'm NOT KIDDING!

    I'm blown away myself! LOL www.TheDarkness.com

    I know for a fact your haunt will look phenomenal, it does every year. But will it be SCARIER this year? I think you need to take people out of the scenery and create the sense of dread, that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you know something scary is coming around the next corner. I've seen jaw dropping sets and the only scare is a guy popping out a crack in the wall, just want a bigger scare impact.

    Are you adding more scares to your beautiful sets?

    Can't wait to see it, I'll be there.

    Good questions... let me try to give you good answers. For one our main focus as it is EVERY SINGLE year is to focus on the detail, new room concepts, new props, new ways to do things not actors... every single time we do one of these renovations it comes right down to the wire like a reality show. We hardly have time to get to know the news sets, animations or anything we are more or less seeing them for the first time just like you if you want to know the truth.

    So with that being said this year is a bit different... all the animations and all the FX we've built we are trying to make the haunt MORE INTERACTIVE. Gore Galore has helped us bring some idea's we had to reality such as the venus fly trap that swallows you yes its going to touch you. We wanted to build some giant puppet monsters that grab you and bite you... yes they will do that as well. The sawzilla room is going to be really over the top the giant saw blade whipping across your face I hope will be scary... we have also built some really clever actor scares places for actors to hide that we didn't do before. We also have a couple animations that are going to be so CLOSE I think its going to scare you... they will JUMP right at you and over your head... you'll see.

    We also ordered over 100 new costumes and they are awesome plus we've bought roughly 50 or so new Silicone masks just for this event... so yeah we are trying HARD to make it scarier. But lets be honest for a second... haunted house owners are always going to be a tough scare always so that is why we focus so hard on the amazing detail, and over the top FX ... each year we've done something over the top from the swamp house, ice scream truck, falling wall of barrels and this year we are doing an actor wheelchair gag that is going to be awesome.

    SO yes this time around we are trying but at the same time there will be little time to work with actors to fine tune the screams but we've enhanced it to a whole new level.

    I think you will agree this time around its SO FAR OVER THE TOP you won't believe what has been done... you will scratch your head and wonder how it could have even been done its that detailed.

    Here are some more pics... I have to take pictures around trash cans, stuff that should be removed and there isn't much light in the attraction right now. We spent most of the day filming green screen stuff... we also worked heavy on Medusa scene. Get your tickets now at www.thedarkness.com

    Now we are going to at least it will seem like we are starting from scratch ... in other words when we first started you saw bare walls, seemed like almost nothing. Well we are out of the upstairs for now and back downstairs to build the final two rooms. First check out Medusa which is finally started... it should be done in about a day or two. It will get hard coated next weekend then painted. We have done a lot of foam carving in this room and its the only room we are doing any foam carving.

    This room will not look like much until its hard coated and painted. Also one picture of a bare room in Terror Visions plus one shot of the wheelchair animation coming together. We have 30 days and counting... get your tickets now at www.thedarkness.com

    This is going to be a HUGE WEEK FOLKS... we are going to get the construction of Medusa done THIS WEEK! It will be hard coated over the weekend and from there it will be painted. Won't look like much until its painted then it should look pretty awesome.

    We will also start the LAST scene and we'll put EVERYONE on it and try to knock it out by probably Monday or Tuesday of next week. Terror Visions will be worked on and finished in about two weeks so nothing to report there really. Work on TV is somewhat suspended for this coming week. Also including several more shots from CGI shoots we recently did. We did one CGI that is going to be really really cool... more on that later. We also finished working on the Green House theming in these new Venus Fly traps. Get your tickets at www.thedarkness.com the behind the scenes tours are about 80% sold out.

    SKULLIATH is coming!!!!!!!

    Thought you might like to see how this is coming.
    Here is a size comparison for you to see this monster is about 6' 1/2 feet tall.
    Just wait till you see this guy flying out at you, grabbing you and trying to eat you.
    I think it is going to be something special.

    These couple of pictures do NOT give you a good idea of how we are building this room out but its getting closer... by the end of the day TODAY this room will be DONE and READY for hard coat. Once its hard coated we will paint this next week then FINALLY you'll see what it will look like. I have to be honest here I'm getting this room and the last room done by winging it something I don't normally do ... ahh what am I saying i'm always winging it. But on these two rooms we are totally 110% winging. Everyday we do a little something then I come in and figure out what we should do next to make it look better. Today was a near disaster as many of the things that got done while I wasn't there wasn't done the way I wanted so we basically started over. However I think this room should be done by the end of the day I AM HOPING! Next week when its painted then you'll really see how cool it should be when its all said and done.
