Let's go to the tape...

A couple of short videos from Halloween...

Here's the scene shortly after we started- the foggers are still warming up:

Now the foggers are doing their work:

And a quick clip of my "victims":

Bring down the curtain, take a bow...Halloween 2014

And just like that, it's over.

A year of planning, building, re-building. Advances and reversals. Changes of plan on the fly. It all comes down to one magical night...

The weather refused to cooperate- heavy rains all day gradually tapered off to drizzle and- around 5 pm- some clear skies. Unfortunately, by 6 pm we were back to heavy rains. They ended quickly and the rest of the night was dry, but a lot of folks either stayed in or went elsewhere.

Still, the ones who did come out were impressed. Our crypt was a HUGE hit, and was certainly the "must-see" of the evening. Drac managed to scare a few of the teens and tweens by materializing out of the fog, providing a gentle reminder as who the Master of the Manor truly was...mwah hah hah!

Here are some pics and vids of the evening...hope you enjoy them as much as we did making them!

Front of the crypt- it loses something with the flash.
Approaching the crypt, the evil dead await!
Inside the crypt- dare you linger?

Wherever you go, He follows...
Another angle showing the lines.
Moonlight strikes the Undead...will He rise?
