Taking Care of Masks

Odds are that anyone reading this website has at least one latex mask they want to preserve. Maybe it’s to wear again on future Halloweens (or haunts) or maybe you just want to display it. Whatever the rationale for this perfectly reasonable desire is, don’t store them on styrofoam wig heads! This might seem like …

Make Your Own Man-Eating Plant

The term “man-eating plant” is kind of misleading. Pop culture has shown time and time again how these fictional plants are more than happy to eat women. Come to think of it, they often snack on animals much larger than what your standard Venus Flytrap, sundew or pitcher plant could ever hope to digest. I …

How To Make A Prop Chainsaw

Do you need a fake chainsaw for Halloween and require something with more heft than a papercraft version? Fear not! The Prop Master’s Handbook has posted a tutorial on YouTube which shows how you can make a fairly realistic one for very little money: This also gave me a great idea for a haunted house …

Haunted Attraction Tour Videos II

It was a hard search, but I managed to find enough haunted attraction tour videos which met the criteria I discussed last year. I enjoyed the range of audio options used this time around (although this year’s selection admittedly starts off with several videos featuring music from the same artist). Hopefully next time’s selection will …

TGIF13 X: Making a Cardboard Hockey Mask

You might have noticed I didn’t title this “TGIF13 X: Make Your Own Cardboard Hockey Mask.” I chose the title I used because the subject of today’s post is not a tutorial. Instead it’s a time lapse video of someone shaping the iconic mask out of cardboard (and packing paper) and painting it. That doesn’t …

Daytona of the Dead

I finally found the video I mentioned all the way back in 2011! I also rediscovered the bit in which Pontius and Steve-O originally debuted the characterizations they use in “Daytona of the Dead.” You can enjoy both videos thanks to WildboyzVidz: I don’t know if I’ll have any material for Day of the Dead …

Inexpensive Theremin Substitutes

Ah, the theremin. Its otherworldly electric noises have made their way onto the soundtracks for countless horror and science fiction movies. It even turns its use for anything related to outer space is scientifically accurate! It’s a shame they can be so pricey. Building your own can lessen the expense, but it’s an intimidating task …

Haunted Attraction Tour Videos

I’ve decided to reboot my “Haunted Attraction Walkthroughs” article series. Why? Because it was an absolute mess. It featured videos of walking by yard haunts and riding through haunted hayrides despite the use of the word “walkthrough” in its name and I was constantly having to replace videos that got taken down. This led to …

Deep One Dave

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) videos are a very popular genre on YouTube. Such videos are usually filmed from a first person perspective in order to make it seem like you are interacting with the subject of the video you are watching. At first I assumed these were made to help people deal with their …

Splendorman

It’s Women In Horror Recognition Month and I have the perfect video to celebrate! It’s a hilarious Slender Man parody (more specifically, the Slender Man mythos set up in the Marble Hornets web series) which you can watch thanks to Neil Cicierega: So why is a video about Splendorman that was uploaded by a man …

Jiangshi Comedy

The English translation for “jiangshi” seems to be pretty flexible. I have seen them referred to as vampires, ghouls, ghosts and even zombies in various English language resources. One such example of the “zombie” usage comes to us from this hilarious prank video by TMD Shanghai: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Tne0nlYJHU Unlike many prank videos using the modern depiction …

Howie’s Haunted Halloween Nightmare

Remember that cartoon from a few years back that parts of the internet were raving about? The one with animation which payed homage to the style popularized in the 30’s? No, not Over the Garden Wall. The title of this article should have been a dead giveaway to what I’m talking about. All kidding aside, …

How To Build Haunted House Walls

Okay, so you know how to detail haunted house walls. But such knowledge means absolutely nothing without any walls to detail! So I have combed YouTube for the greatest selection of videos on the subject I could find. Although I tried to cover the greatest variety of walls possible, there is bound to be some …

Haunted Attraction Walkthroughs V

In spite of the problems of I noted in last year’s installment, I have decided to continue this particular series of articles. But I have decided to cut back to ten videos instead of fifteen since replacing videos is still a concern. This way I’ll still be able to keep this going while not having …

Who’s There?

When fans of this website hear the names “Brian Davis” and “Jay Brooks,” they’re most likely to think of music. After all, Jay is the head of Clouseaux and both men create spooky ambient music as Grave Tone Productions. But did you know they’re also filmmakers? The duo decided to make a short film in …

Godzilla Marathon Promos

Godzilla movie marathons were a common staple of 90’s television programming, even before the hype over Tristar’s 1998 disappointment started. Although most of them were promoted by simply combining narration with clips from the films, some stations rolled up their sleeves to create something truly special. Our first example comes to us from WGN, as …
