    Has anyone thought of having a "bad santa claws" as a scene in there haunt?
    I am considering the idea, but was wondering if doing something like his was wrong? Meaning, offending the public etc. Could you please give me your opinions or suggestions on doing something like this?
    Thanks

    We have had evil Santa's, Mrs. Claus as well as demented elves. They have always been good rooms!

    I talked to my staff at the Darkness during this past season and came up with this crazy idea of turning the whole entire mansion into the Night Before Christmas. In other words make it snow in the swamp before the mansion facade, having an evil frost costume actor jump out, decorate the entire inside with christmas lights, decorations, trees, presents the whole bit.

    The whole idea was that this was a normal home until Santa Claws and his evil elves showed up and killed everyone. The whole family would be killed in a Christmas style like impaled on a tree, blah, blah.

    I thought it would be a riot. I was going to have Brainstorm do me up a horrible looking Santa logo and everything.

    I still think it would be a great idea. Also considered doing a 3D Santa attraction around the same theme.

    Another thing... several years ago we had a haunted house called Terror Visions and inside we did a whole series of Santa scenes in the attraction and people loved them. But one thing that was great was we took famous santa stories like Night before Christmas and twisted around the words and recorded it and played it in the scenes. It was great!

    I'll see if I can locate that sound file and upload it.

    Universal's Halloween Horror Nights this year had a house "Psychoscareapy - Home for the Holiday's" this year. No actual Santa but definitely one of the most creative haunts I'v seen. Back story was that a van full of patients from the local asylum crashed into a house around Christmas time, and the patients took over the neighborhood.

    Check out a brief video of it:

    Sounds like my one murder mystery script we used to do here "The Seven Psychic Sisters" who were going through The Ravens Grin Inn looking for clues as to who murdered their Fathers as a group of psychos invaded the house as their bus quit right outside and they were employed as the scare-squad meanacing the sisters, of course each psycho had numerous personalitys to play with...
    My "Santa" is "Nosferato-claus", the bad Santa. "Has the good Santa been not bringing you what you ask him for? Ask Bad Santa and he might come across for you since the good Santa knows what you want is something that you really shouldn't have, whereas the bad Santa doesn't care, whisper in Bad Santa's ear, ask him for what you want......" Then the fun begins!
    "Bad Santa's initials are ""B S", afterall!
    Just a few hours ago Nosferato Santa got quite a reaction from some people here, lots of fun!

    We did a nasty Santa scene this year. Since we also host a Christmas show and hayride, we were able to use our animated elves in the scene. It was pretty simple; a partially decorated tree, stockings hangin over a fireplace, presents strewn around, and of course Santa with a bloody beard. Surprisingly, we had no complaints. The funny thing is when people return for our Christmas display, they are amazed that we had transformed the Bates Motel into Santa's workshop. The only screams we got was when the guys fired up the chainsaw to trim the trees we were selling!
