    To be honest stay away from ALL horror movie characters... First of all you don't want any Hollywood Lawyers knocking on your door. second is un-original. Be creative. Develop your own characters

    Well i cant just as easily get around that by saying its not the scream killer its just a guy in a mask with a knife cant i? Anyway its not for me, trust me i have my own forte of origional characters ranging from Nak the clown to Null the zombie or Obe The Butcher. I was just thinking about it, because we are short on cash right now im trying to come up with cheap yet effective costume ideas....its harder then i thought it would be.

    So any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    Scream isn't scary any longer because the character was waaaay overdone. Scary Movie didn't help.
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes it is that quiet voice in the middle of the night asking, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    Not scary.

    Kids could buy the mask and hood for $8 at any store a few years ago. Right after the first movie came out you could probably get some scares with it. Now people would just look at it and say, "Oh, look, somebody in one of those Scream movie masks."

    How about a ventriloquist with one of those little dolls like Chucky but not Chucky? They could be having an argument at the beginning of the haunt and the doll could be threatening the ventriloquist. Then as people make their way through the haunt, it could become apparent that the doll has escaped and has wreaked havoc all over the haunt, even injuring the ventriloquist and possibly later murdering him or her. You would just need to buy a couple or three of the same dolls for that and then get somebody to play the ventriloquist. Then stage whatever scenes you want to show that the dummy has wreaked havoc everwhere.

    And mimes can be scary and cheap costume-wise.

    How about some Harry Potter stuff for the kids? Pretend you're eating those nasty flavored jelly beans like vomit, ear wax, sardines, spinach, etc., and that you're going to make them eat them too. Come on people. What other nasty flavors did they have?

    These are just some ideas to get you started thinking.
