All you need to pull off this amazing “haunt” is a front window to your house, a white bed sheet, painters tape, a projector, a laptop and some computer speakers.

Oh…. and this…

Hallowindow V - Get it!

Hallowindow! (the video)

Simply put, this is a cartoon-scary thrill show for your neighborhood and anyone that dares come to the door to ask for candy.

All you need to do is purchase and download the videos, then set your projector up to display (backwards) in your window and sneak your speakers out in a way that projects them to the neighborhood. Then then let the fun begin!

Our neighbors adored the spookiness each year we showed Hallowindow, and last year even asked where it was! There are plenty of variety packs (and new versions each year) to keep up the haunt year after year and make it unique each time!


Ok… time for me to stop procrastinating and get my lonely tombstone in the yard… and finish up those costumes too!
