Plans for 2011

Well, another year has come and gone - a time for reflection, peace…and planning for next Halloween. After this past Halloween, I’ve had to make a few decisions about this next haunt. For the past two years, I’ve been doing the haunt at Mom’s house near Pittsburgh, PA. It was very stressful trying to bring props back and forth from their and where I live with my dad in Ohio. I became rather annoyed with myself for forgetting some key props. So, in order to be more productive, I've decided to do a small-scale haunt in Ohio, at my house. I say “small scale” because of some other stuff happening this year that I’ll be blogging about later. I have a couple ideas for this haunt, not entirely certain what the theme will be, but hopefully it’ll be something that the ToTs will remember. I have to admit, while the prospect of an all new haunt with a new location is exciting, from past experience the Halloween audience in my dad’s neighborhood doesn’t really get as in to Halloween as they do in my mom’s town. Not as many people in costume; but then again, I mostly do these haunts for myself. Well, not much else to say, just keep an eye out (not literally, mind you) on my blog for the theme of the haunt, as well as more exciting projects in my near future. Until then, the awesome video below I found YouTube should give you an idea as to what my haunt 2011 might look like (from user rgshollow).

Oh, and a blood spattered welcome to trickortreat and the FROG QUEEN, of the spectacular Davis Graveyard. Seriously, if you haven't seen the site, what the hell have been doing? Go there NOW!


  1. You find Halloween where you can. It's in the spirit. I had a great setup this year and about maybe 6 kids showed up. Bummer. I did, however, go on a hayride, a pumpkin patch, an autumn festival, haunted places. Ultimately, having a part is a way to be sure friends get to enjoy the props which they do even more than kids. I'm curious to hear what inspires you this year.

  3. Glad to hear that you are looking forward to the change. Having done our haunt for so long, I can imagine how stressful that decision could be.

    Looking forward to hearing what your plans are for the coming year! I so love seeing what other haunters are up to!

    And thanks so much for the mention....I am honored :)

    Happy Haunting!
