Post Easter.

Or, a cure for the Easter Cute.

If you have overdosed on the holiday, perhaps a little Monty Python will cheer you. After all, one can only eat so many Peeps and chocolate bunnies, or watch small relatives in sticky bunny suits quest for brightly colored eggs.

“It’s just a harmless little bunny, isn’t it?”

I love it.

Happy haunts.

Small Monsters.

Video production update: preparing to shoot.

Scarecrows at midnight.

One night, while I was fooling around with bits of stuff, small monsters began to assemble themselves. Before I realized what was happening, I was outnumbered.

And, like the Morning After, the video project crawls toward its end, not daring to look back.

Happy haunts!

 


 

Kansas City’s Haunted Attraction,The Beast, Adopts Dark Oak’s Aracni-apes.

Now, there is another reason to fear “The Beast.”

This Halloween, two new monsters will be lurking in the huge haunted attraction known as The Beast. Having taken care of them for a year, I can tell you, they are always hungry.

The Aracni-ape is an instinct-driven hunter. This breed likes to hang from trees, feigning death to lure in prey that get too curious.

This playing ‘possum breed can be found in forests, swamps, and caves, any habitat that provides concealment for its drop-down ambush tactics. That includes old buildings.

I hate to see them go, but care & feeding of these guys was getting problematic. I’m sure the staff at The Beast are better suited to care for these little monsters. After all, they have been looking after their pet ‘gators and Medusa, the world’s largest anaconda in captivity, for years. What a happy home The Beast will make for the aracni-apes.

The second breed, shown below, is the more deadly of the two. It prefers to stalk its prey.

The deadly dasher.

Should you visit any of the other Full Moon Productions haunted attractions, keep in mind, these creatures could be in any of them. There is no guarantee they will stay in The Beast.  Watch out for them in The Edge of Hell, The Chambers of Poe, or in the Macabre Cinema attractions.
