In 2018 myself and my girlfriend put in a good deal of time to setup a haunted house in my outbuilding.
Here are some images of everything that was at our disposal (less a few items bought post photos);
This outbuilding contains two rooms, the first being a games/general room the second, built by the previous owners, is a cinema room.
We had setup a great walk through where as you entered the building into the games room you had the Cauldron Creeper straight to your right, to hit you with a scare as soon as you walked in.
The rest of this room was done up with various decorations and a small grave yard in the corner opposite the door. This graveyard had the Aged Cemetery Tombstone as the main centre piece.
There was also a large plush elf that was setup as an alcoholic and hung himself. There wasn’t any particular theming to this display.
Into the cinema room the Looming Phantom had been setup again to the right of the door.
Then after walking round the seating there was a small ring of tombstones with a couple of ground breaker zombies and a foam coffin. This is where the sweet bowl was as well.
I was awoken in the morning by a neighbor as they was smoking coming from the games room windows.
Funnily enough at first they thought it was me “experimenting for Halloween”, (in my village I’m known as the Halloween house).
After getting no response from the outbuilding they came and banged on my back door. Least to say not the best way to be woken up.
After a frantic call to the fire brigade they raised with two trucks. Fire was pretty much out when they arrived apparently. Their inspector said it was a small fire that suffocated itself, but it burnt hot, very hot.
This fire took place Oct 30th so no one got to visit the haunted house, which was a massive shame considering the amount of work that was put into it.
Oh well, live and learn, luckily no one was injured in the fire and insurance has covered it all.
Having said this, the Aged Tomb Stone managed to survive, although the insurance company made me destroy it;
I’ve just got to start rebuilding that collection, which will take some time. I’ve already ordered a new cauldron creeper and a new item I found on Mad About Horror, a Victorian zombie boy on a swing…. I’ll review that when it arrives.
