I love decorating the house for holidays. I really do, so does my 4 year old. We both love Halloween. Every year we buy a few new decorations and add to our outside display. I always thought I had a very nice set up, until I watched Halloween Home Haunts.
Halloween Home Haunts in the brainchild of Jonathan Morken from Apprehensive Films. It follows several different people who go to great lengths to turn there homes into Halloween attractions. Some of them have gotten so large they have turned into professional haunted houses.
Everyone interviewed has a passion for there decorations and set ups. Everyone had a theme, from graveyards, to the old west, to witches, and pumpkins. One young lady had a giant evil pumpkin made from chicken wire. Yes, some of these amazing designs are actually homemade. I was beyond happy to learn there is a web page to make your own tombstones. My son and I have already downloaded patterns.
Not everything is homemade however. Some people have spent upwards of thirty thousand dollars. And it shows. Motorized Jason's from Friday the 13th, fog, light, and strobe machines, plus every animatronic ghoul you could think of.
After a short visit with each decorator, where you learn about there favorite decorates, themes, set up, and love for Halloween you are given an eerie tour of the home when its all finished, set to a pulsing old horror school organ beat.
My son happened to walk in the room when it was one, and has watched it several times there after. He keeps informing me of what I will be buying this year.
This video will be available on September 17 I highly recommend picking it up. It will not only be a nice change from always seeing Christmas decorating shows, but if your a fan of decorating your house, it is sure to give you tons of ideas. And if your a fan of Halloween you will enjoy seeing these peoples passion, and of course awesome displays.
Overall 4 out of 5 Stars!
