Chances are if you’re into this whole haunted house thing, you probably figured out a pretty effective scare when you were a little kid. Whether you jumped out from around a corner and screamed at your little cousin or you had fun slamming your textbooks suddenly in class, the concept holds true at any age.

Spotlight: When Hinges Creak, Haunted House Hardware!

When people ask me what I do, the response is always the same – “wow, I guess I never thought about the fact that these haunted houses have to buy their stuff from somewhere.” What we do here at FrightProps is certainly a niche market. Selling haunted house supplies from vampire teeth to motion platforms definitely isn’t a common line of work.

FrightProps Is Your Halloween and Haunted House One-Stop Shop!

Maybe you knew this already, but we work with a lot of people in a lot of different industries. It’s kind of the way our company was built – one day some dude named Doug, a haunt-builder himself, rubbed his temples in confusion and said, “why isn’t there one place where I can buy all the stuff I need for Halloween and haunted house supplies?” (more…)

5 LED Lighting Myths DEBUNKED!

 

68DHEF6YYVnxeau5KSz414gSatzYzGy_PPOrC3-RyikWhen it comes to LED lighting, a lot of people think getting as many lights for as cheap as possible is the best way to go.  But that’s about the same idea as buying fast food cheeseburgers as opposed to going to buying one at a good restaurant. Sure – they taste pretty good and they’ll get you by (especially if you’re on a budget), but you absolutely notice the difference when you step it up a bit.

It’s the same concept with higher-end LED fixtures. Products like our Nano Spots are an excellent and totally economic solution, but there’s a reason we also offer higher end products. Invest in the right thing from the start and you’ll end up saving yourself money.

To hammer this point home, we’ll take a look at some of the myths that keep people on the “the cheaper, the better” school of thought. (more…)

Greetings, boys and ghouls! This manic monday, we figured we’d take a moment out of your day to discuss something which is VERY EXCITING – to us, at least. But probably to a lot of you haunters as well!

 

Recently, we partnered with a company named after one of our favorite Ozzy Osbourne songs – Shot In The Dark Scare Tools!

We can all agree that having a good haunt means creating an immersive environment where your patrons/victims get lost in what’s going on. In order to do that, you undoubtedly have to take the time to properly decorate your halloween haunt. But decorations aren’t the end all of the process, are they? Everyone’s been inside of a haunt where the scenery and environments looked great, but for some reason the haunt was mysteriously lacking that feeling of urgent terror.
