Blueprints for Isla Corpus Pirate Haunt 2011

Yep, that's the haunt name - Isla Corpus Haunted Adventure! I came up with the name a long time ago, just didn't know how or where to use it. Anywho, I've decided to show my blueprints for this year's display at my dad's house. The "Davey Jones' Locker" scene in the garage will have my vortex light, and the sounds of a ghost ship. In the side yard, there will (possible) be a buccaneer's boneyard, and the front porch and front walk will be the "Treasure Cave" and "Haunted Harbor", respectively. I'm really looking forward to actually building the props, and have started budgeting. Keep a weather eye open mates!

Ghost Ship Day - A Tribute to John Carptenter's The Fog

Attention boils and ghouls!

In order to celebrate John Carpenter’s The Fog turning 31 this year, I’ve decided to organize a group of horror bloggers to pay tribute to the film. I call it “Ghost Ship Day”. What we’ll do, is on the 21st of April this year, everyone who wishes to participate simply has to post the event’s logo on their blog, along with something related to The Fog. It doesn’t have to be directly related to the movie, it can be anything in any medium, from videos to art, as long it is both nautical and spooky! I myself will be posting the opening ghost story video from The Fog. Let me know by April 2nd if you wish to participate so I can e-mail you the logo and the list of other blogs participating. Contact me at halloweenutblog AT gmail dot com. I hope you all can take part in this fun event!

Haunt Dilemma - I've choosen my theme...

It's Pirates.

I decided to go with it because, unlike "Phantom" it's a theme that people will respond to better. But I can promise you guys this: I will NOT, in any way shape or form, rip-off of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride or movies. As fun as they are, WAY too many haunters "borrow" images and music/dialogue from them. So I'll try to be as dark/scary and original as I can. Expect it to be a very ghostly haunt, while still having an adventurous spirit. I'm very excited about this, and can't wait to start building!

Also, shout-out's to Dr. Blood and Samanta Martins. Glad to have ye aboard!
