Hi everyone! I'm uncomfortable posting on forums because I know there are rules and I'm terrified that I'm accidentally breaking them... hopefully this is all ok.

This year we stepped up our haunt, and I thought I'd include some videos and pictures to show y'all. It's a totally free home haunt based in Scarborough, Ontario. I'm a member of the Canadian Haunters Association. CHA.


I realize you can't see much of the detail so I made this video to focus in on the garage portion of our haunt. (the tent has to be set up and removed quickly so unfortunately I missed out on taking pictures)


There are many more videos on my channel if you'd like to check them out, including a few tutorials. http://www.youtube.com/user/garmonbozy

I also discuss the whole process of building this haunt in my blog.

There's info on the very detailed backstory that I wrote and turned into a mockumentary, on all the mask making I did this year, promotion & marketing, and all the props that were made; along with some thoughts on the philosophy of building haunted houses. Please have a look, and I welcome your feedback!

Oh, one last video. This is my prop that was featured on Hauntcast this month. His name is Berstuk.


And of course my website: http://butcherofprovincetown.com/

Just watched the extended cut of the drop panel twice. So funny! The detail throughout is amazing. Very creepy atmosphere. Your actors were great. The reactions of the patrons were priceless! A haunted house as it was meant to be!
I'd love to see some detailed shots of the drop panel mechanism if you ever have time. Thanks!

Thanks jdubbya! I wish I had taken more pictures of that, but if it helps I followed the very simple technique laid out by Allen Hopps in this tutorial:

Not that I have a bunch of experience with these things, but I found a lot of the plans for drop panels around the web seemed unnecessarily complicated. At least for my one-night home haunt, this method worked like a dream.

Hey Brad. I think you should make separate threads in some of the other sections as people would be interested I think. Some of your great props in the "Showroom" or "Prop How-To's" and especially one about your viral marketing campaign which was really unique and effective could go under "Haunt Tactics and Techniques".

Thanks Hector - I'll try to figure that out this afternoon. Thanks for the tip!
