It's called "Hallowed Haunting Grounds". This is really cool! Love the floating lantern effect!

The lantern works on a mobile effect. It's nice when I see it. :D

I like the way they did the aging statues and following heads.

That is just awesome. The rotting face on the statue head I assume was a projection on a smooth faced head, but what about all those apparitions? Were they Peppers ghosts or projections? If they were peppers they would have needed some hella big panes of glass in front of those room displays. That place was off the hook, I wish I could have seen it live.

The haunted organist and harp player were Pepper's ghosts, with the organist being a reflection of a tv screen and the harp player being an animatronic. The outdoor apparitions were video projections on scrim.

Weeel damn info ya ruined the whole thing for me. Some of us halloweeniers like the illusions. I was amazed at the amount of work this was for a home haunt. Is it one you were familiar with personally? They did an amazing job.

No kidding.

Hey Info, how about the tracking head busts? Were those just negative face molds set back in the wall niches?

The haunt is down here in SoCal and the owner worked in the "business" (hollywood studio or maybe it was even Disney). Nice guy. He and a bunch of his fellow SFX desingners would get together every year and come up with the ideas and put the stuff together. I think the home was actually his Mom's if I remember right.
