Want the background story to how this all started?
Picture this...you're driving down the road in the middle of May, as you slow down for a stop light you notice some strange guy in a hospital gown with a freakish mask on staring at you. First you laugh because it's odd and funny. What's a guy with a mask on doing on the streets in the middle of May? You wave at him, but he does nothing back. He just stands motionless staring at you. You begin to feel uneasy because now you can't tell if this guy is trying to make you laugh or if something is wrong with him making you wonder what the hell is going on?! Little do you know the guy behind the mask is laughing uncontrollably while you begin to show signs of fear.
How about watching tv in your second floor apartment and all of a sudden a floating mask appears in your window scaring the crap out of you! How often do you expect to see a mask floating in air outside your second story window?
These are typical pranks my family, friends and I pull all the time. Since we were kids we've always loved to play pranks on people in costume and push the boundaries to get reactions out of them regardless of what time of year it was. Scaring people in costume has always been a passion of ours and we want to take this passion and make a living out of it.
Halloween has always been our favorite holiday since I can remember. Every year we have always been the go to house in the neighborhood and many times we have teamed up to scare people chasing them down the streets. I've had people come up to me days later and tell me how they loved how we scared their kids, or how they themselves were freaked out by us. We took it up a notch and went to local costume parties and were featured in a local paper 'Creative Loafing' for our evil biker costumes we wore to The Castle in Ybor city. People were all getting pictures with us because they loved the costumes. So doing as we always do we took it up another notch and have bought a ton of these masks for advertising this idea on the side of the road. Watch the video above to see us with the biker masks in action.
After years of going to all the local haunted houses we always found ourselves let down. The houses had unrealistic props, the actors seemed like just that actors, and the overall experience just didn't appease that fear we hoped to achieve. Another thing we couldn't stand was how today all of the houses send you in a continuous line of people where other patrons point out upcoming actors, wear glow sticks and use flashlights killing the darkness aspect and thus ruining the experience. How are we supposed to feel like we are in danger, like we should be scared when there are a bunch of other people around us doing this stuff? A haunted house should be something you experience in a very small group, and only with people you know enhancing the realism of the haunt. So with this we agreed we can do this better but we need your help. So why should you donate to us and help us build this house? How could we possibly KNOW that we can do it better?
It is a known fact that hobbyists of anything are always the best at what they do because they do it for the love of that hobby, not for the money. Scaring people is a hobby of ours. Some people do things for money, but those that are truly happy are those that love what they do for a living. Realizing this we decided to do what we've always done best....SCARE PEOPLE!
And why should you help? Simple answer, because we're not some giant corporation that will water down the attraction to make as much profit as possible. To us the most important thing is the haunt itself because that is where our passion lies. So we're asking you to please donate and help make our dream become your nightmare! Donate to us and let us show you what a haunted house should really be like...no corporations telling us to tone it down, pure unadulterated fear manifested in a way to both amuse and disturb you.
Our goal is for $1000 however the more we bring in the better we can make this so keep that in mind when you are donating. Custom made props are not cheap so if you want an experience unlike any other donate accordingly and your dark side will not regret it ;)
Disclaimer: Although the above description is clear in its intent, the words "we, our, or us" in no way represents ownership rights in the house, it merely tells the story of how this idea came to be and how this idea has manifested.
