Every year the competition for the best Halloween house lighting grows stronger and stronger. And, at some point, one neighbor decided to do this so everyone else could stop trying too hard as no one is going to top this anytime soon.
This is Halloween lighting show from 2012’s Halloween night.
Most epic Tim Burton’s works.
We love this. We love Tim Burton!
We love this. Take a look!
The original Scream was released in 1996and has to be the scariest of them all – although there have been 5 films following on from this Scream, the first one is defiantly the best. The film stars many famous actors and actress such as Courtney Cox, Drew Barrymore and David Arquette.
The Haunting in Connecticut
The haunting in Connecticut is a psychological horror directed by Peter Cornwell and released in 2009. The film is based on a book called ‘The story of a True Haunting’ which is supposedly a true story.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Texas Chainsaw Massacre has had two versions of it made, the original in 1974 and then was recreated in 2003. The original is much better than the remake but unfortunately it’s quite a bit older so people tend to watch the current version. The film has lots of gore and jumpy scenes to keep you on the edge of your seat. The film has been produced by ‘Platinum Dunes’ who have also produced films such as The Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday The 13th.
Halloween Finger Biscuits
These would be the perfect treat to serve at Halloween; whether you’re having a party, feeding the trick or treaters or even at work as a spooky treat!If I must say, theydo look finger lickin’ good.
We’re still a while away from Halloween (137 days, to be precise) but that shouldn’t stop you in being prepared. Why not visit somewhere else to see how they celebrate on October 31st? It’s all about knowing where the place to be on Halloween is.
No matter where you are, why not experiment like the picture above? There are countless way in getting creative with your Halloween treats!
When October 31st arrives, it can be a time to let your creative side out. This is your chance to make your house the scariest on the block! And what better way to do that than perfecting the art of pumpkin carving?
Depending on how many pumpkins you have, how big and how spooky they are could make the difference; there’s so much variety you can work with, in terms of different facial expressions and shapes that are cut out.
Here, I’ve found some of my favourite pumpkin carvings to help inspire you for this Halloween:
This is a very creative carving, with the fact that it’s not simply been cut into, but stalks have been added to make ears, the eyes aren’t just holes and the tongue- well the tongue just sticks right out at you!
The simple use of using a mini-pumpkin with this really adds effect. I love the way the stalk has been used as its nose; simple, but effective.
The detail in this carving is phenomenal. This would take a very steady hand and a lot of patience. I found lots of stencils available online that can help create masterpieces to this standard (or near enough)!
You can be as creative as you need to be with pumpkin carving; they come in all shapes, colours and sizes:
So go wild this Halloween and create lots of different pumpkin characters to really impress the neighbours. The possibilities are endless!
Want a bit more than just trick or treating this Halloween? Well there are plenty of things to do for a spooky occasion!
Will you be going out for Halloween this year? Why not make more effort this October and go to a fright night! Whether you’re with the family, a group of friends or your partner you’ll be in for a treat- or a trick..
Tulley’s farm is the best fright night in my area and in recent years has got more and more terrifyingly exciting. The farm has child-friendly events during the day, such as the ‘creepy cottage’, ‘spooky trail’ and ‘horrid hayride’. The farm is famous for the 1000’s of pumpkins that are grown and offer pumpkin carving for the family. By night time, the place is a lot scarier; if you dare visit ‘the cellar’ or ‘the curtains’ in the famous haunted house, prepare to be scared!
Tulley’s farm was given the Screamie Award for being the UK’s best Halloween event for good reasons. I highly recommend a visit this October for a thrilling, spine-chilling, blood-spilling time..
What is normally a family-friendly, adrenaline-fuelled theme park, Thorpe Park gets a lot spookier come October. Their fright night has been there for 10 years now and provides shocks from their rides in the dark and live action horror mazes. There are a variety of mazes, including the sick and twisted world of ‘Jigsaw’ from the ‘SAW’ films, The Asylum, The Curse, the Se7en deadly sins and the new blood-curdling attraction for 2011, Experiment 10. Some are scarier than others, so choose wisely..
Thorpe Park fright night could be a bit more pricey compared to local fright nights but is definitely worth a visit if you’ve never been. A ticket is for the whole day, so I recommend making the most of the day there, then see the Thorpe Park after dark.
Depending on where you are, a ghost walk should never be too far! Around October time, you will have chances to explore haunted parts of your local city or area. The walks can be very atmospheric and spooky, enlightening you with tales of murders and deaths.
There are a lot of interesting and wonderful things you can learn from a ghost walk and are normally child-friendly, so they can learn about the history of your local area and what life was like for the citizens.
Ghost walks are normally best done in larger groups and can be great fun, whether you’re with friends or family.
Continuing my “powerpig week” Happy belated Halloween!
Really creative Halloween pumpkin ;-) I love LEO as well!
