Don’t Be A Monster
is national nonprofit founded in 2012 by haunted industry insiders. They work with haunted houses nationwide to deliver bullying prevention programs to students in grades 4-10th during the fall season. Their mission is to educate and empower youth to be leaders in their school around diversity, inclusiveness, and to start meaningful conversations about how to stand up for their friends and peers.

Together with Haunt Shirts, Don’t Be A Monster is launching a campaign to spread awareness and we’ve offered to help! 50% of sales of these unique t-shirts (designed by Chad Savage) will be donated to Don’t Be A Monster and FrightProps has offered to donate a matching amount! And because of matching donations from us and a slew of other great companies, each shirt purchased donates $62.50 to Don’t Be A Monster! So CLICK HERE to give a little and support an organization that’s doing good work – and get a t-shirt!

Halloween Laser Lights!

scorpion_-dual_6
You already know from those late nights at the disco that laser lights add fluidity and movement to a venue, encouraging people to socialize and get dancin’! And if you use them in a haunt, you’re certainly aware that laser lights for haunted houses add an eerie and almost supernatural effect that can generate anxiety as well. They’re great for evil laboratory scenes, make super cool alien abduction effects, and add extra depth to those UV painted rooms. But actually there are tons of cool ways to use lasers that sometimes people forget about!

Lightning Simulator: The Perfect Storm!

perfect-storm_1_1

You’ve set up strings of pumpkin lights and made the place look totally spooky and haunted for your party. Cobwebs are a hanging, bloody shower curtain is in the bathroom – the whole nine yards. Your makeup and prosthetics are finely adjusted and you’re sure you’re the scariest ghoul on the block. Maybe you’ve even gone that extra mile and prepared a bunch of Halloween-themed desserts — gummy eyeballs, marshmallow ghosts, and cookie gravestones. The only things missing are thunder and lightning effects.

And of course, more fake blood.

Whoa! Haunted house for sale!

00y0y_jnkpbkzupf_600x450Sounds like there’s a heck of a deal out there waiting for someone in the south! For only 45k, you can get yourself this high quality haunted attraction located in Atlanta, Georgia. We haven’t gotten a word on just who’s selling it, but it looks like someone really put a lot of love into this spooky production.

According to the Craigslist ad, it’s currently in a 10,000 sq ft building and was operated as a tour of a former funeral home. It comes with a Hellevator and a hearse, too. AWESOME.

Judging from the pictures, it’s a pretty comprehensive haunted house production. If anyone has any more info on what all they’re specifically selling, leave us a comment!

Haunted House Christmas

Even the crew over here at FrightProps can’t resist getting a little bit into the holiday spirit. As part of an effort to psych people up for the return of our BLOODTHIRSTY THURSDAY social media giveaways, we hacked a Santa Claus prop to put our own twist on the holiday!

Here’s how he started:

rocking-chair-santa-boxed

 

Looks like a decent fellow, right? The prop itself is pretty nice! Talking Santa says a variety of Christmas phrases and rocks back and forth in whatever chair you set him in. It’s pretty easy to assemble (took less than ten minutes) and rocked back and forth pretty consistently without any weird bugs or hiccups. Until we got ahold of him, of course. Continue reading

Christmas and Holiday Haunted Houses for 2015!

Zombie Santa

Here we go again, folks – honoring those lousy holidays that aren’t Halloween. Hot chocolate, warm cookies, singing happy songs and all those other things that a lot of us probably don’t care about because we’re too busy mentally preparing our haunted houses for next year. But whatever – the kids love it and so do some of the people we all really care about. And hey – there’s usually a ton of food for us to devour, right? Continue reading

New 2015 Ugly Sweaters for the Holidays

ugly_sweaters_newsletter

 

Are we supposed to say “Christmas” or “Holidays” now? We can’t keep track of all the media hubbub these days on how to address a bunch of days that have nothing to do with Halloween. Nope. Nah uh.

But one thing we can agree on is that we here at FrightProps like some ugly things. We like severed heads. We like animatronic zombies. We like pneumatics tutorials and stuff the rest of the world might think is a little ugly or unattractive. And you know what? That’s totally fine because there’s at least a few areas we can agree on.

Take this whole Ugly Sweater thing for example – they might be ugly snowman sweaters or ugly Hanukkah sweaters. To us, the most important thing is that these suckers are ugly. Woof.

Screen Shot 2015-12-08 at 2.45.22 PMYikes. Just look at that guy.

So hey, give the ghouls of FrightProps a chance to get in on this holiday cheer and maybe look around our site at some of these ugly Christmas sweaters. Or ugly Holiday sweaters. Or as we call them, “Ugly Not Halloween Sweaters” – heh.
