It’s a fact: we have some of the greatest customers on earth. From home haunters to giant amusement parks, we’re lucky enough to run a business that carries haunted house supplies for scare-hounds all across the board. While we frequently get submissions showing some of the most inventive and craziest uses for our pneumatics, fog machines, motors, and horror props, sometimes we see our stuff show up in different and unexpected places.
Most recently, our resident nerd-extraordinaire, Scott, found a pretty similar boar’s head prop being held by a miniature character – I think the name is “Butcher” from HorrorClix’s Nightmares series. Then again, I’m not a total geek (just a partial one) so I don’t exactly know how miniature figures are named.

That’s only the most recent example of us finding one of our latex props in a completely random place. A few years back, Scott was playing a video game called Dead Head Fred for the PSP and noticed a familiar looking dead rat in the video game.
The game, released in 2007, evidently found our realistic dead rat prop to be so inspiring that they felt the need to forever immortalize it in digital video game world.
We also get a lot of inquiries from small movie studios who are looking for horror props for their movies and for music videos. While we wish we were able to rent out some of our larger and crazier props, we’re not quite set-up for the movie business just yet. However, that doesn’t stop us from seeing our props in some wild videos, like in London rock-outfit Turbogeist’s music video for their song, “Alien Girl”.
Are you impressed yet? You need more to prove that we’re the best Halloween prop company on the planet? Then take a look at our tentacle prop in one of the greatest and most insane movies, Hobo With A Shotgun!
Well, hey – at least we’re impressed with ourselves. Have you put any of our props to good use outside of the haunted house industry? Leave us a comment with a link to it so we can share it across this whole big creepy internet thing.
