Here’s an interesting view on Halloween props. Someone has asked for super scary props, and another person has said there’s no such thing, try and scare them with the element of surprise.
This is true to an extent, if it doesn’t move then it’s probably not going to freak someone out if they can see it from a mile off. But if it’s something that may suddenly move or make a noise unexpectedly, then the element of surprise will startle if not completely freak out most people.
An atmosphere of course is established by having high quality scary looking props, but you definitely need the element of surprise via movement or sound to achieve the scare factor element!
Okay…I’ve got a HUGE halloween/birthday party coming up, and when I say HUGE, I mean it. I’ve got a DJ, fog machine, strobe lights, and great music…But I need some scary props. If you can’t already tell, we’ve spent a lot of money on other things, so I can’t really blow the budget on this one.
I need a good website where I can order some extremely scary halloween props.
All help is appreciated!
Thanx for looking!
No such thing as extremely scary props. You’ll need the element of surprise. Have a distraction prop and scare people from behind or use a device to make an object pop up when someone gets close. Last year, Fearnet.com went coast to coast catching ideas on camera then put them online. Maybe they’ll do the same this year. They called it Route 666.
