The Haunted Basement (of doom)
A few pictures from the Books N More Haunted Basement. The picture above is a particularly moody shot of my Sue Belle tombstone. I would love to have an entire haunt with this atmosphere. Below is a shot looking toward the front of the haunt. Guests had to cross a rickety bridge, over an actual stream with a terrific view of a deserted graveyard
After shedding their trick or treat costumes, Fox and Onyx wait fearlessly to guide the next group of victims thru the haunt.
This googly-eyed spectre was conjured at the last minute to fill a spot in the haunt. He was surprisingly effective, and stopped several people in their tracks for fear of what he might be dreaming up. (Of course, the fact that he was in a room that demanded the guests to crawl thru on hands and knees probably helped his creep factor)
A shop known only as "The Second Hand". What evil lurks in the dark depths just around the corner?
An excellent reason to fear the dentist....
Body Bags hang in a creepy area of the basement. The light from above is filtered thru triangular glass tiles that are set into the mortar of the sidewalk above. Rusty pipes and drippy walls make the perfect setting for this gauntlet of doom.
A stray tarantula waits just beyond the body bags, ready to pounce on unsuspecting victims.
T-bone looks just about as tired as I feel.
