‘Tis the Season

I’ve been longing for cool, rainy days like the one today.  Although it is bittersweet, for it brings to mind thoughts of Halloween and another year without a haunt to call my own.  While I have a few projects in mind for this year, the primary goal of acquiring a place to haunt continues to elude me.  As always, Dear Reader, I am ever open to suggestions.

Haunt Show – St. Louis, 2012

I just returned from once again attending the Halloween and Attractions Show in St. Louis, Missouri.  I wasn’t able to stay for as long as I would have liked, but I packed in as much of the sights as I could, and scored several new props.

The Haunting Life

     Welcome, Foolish Mortals… For those of you who happen upon this blog, you can already see that this is not your ordinary compilation of essays and commentaries.  I am a designer of Haunted House attractions, and this is an archive of the many “Haunts” that I have had the pleasure of working in, creating or both.  I have included as many pictures as I can to properly represent them all, and since many of them no longer exist, these pages will serve as digital memorials of what once was and what will never be again.  I am now a haunter without a haunt, but eagerly seeking any new opportunities.  So I also intend for this website to serve as a resume of sorts to show the extent of my experience in every aspect of the haunted attraction industry.  Hopefully it will be the catalyst in helping me to find a way to once again ply my dark and macabre trade.


     If you own a building, large house, wooded land or other property in or around the Kansas City area that could potentially become a haunted attraction, please email me as soon as possible.  Time is running out for creating a project for the 2012 season.  Or, if you’re a potential investor or would otherwise like to collaborate with me in any way toward creating a new and unique haunt, I would very much like to hear from you.  But be ye warned… this is not a get-rich-quick scheme, and it is certainly not a venture suited for just any one.  Read about the many haunts that I have been a part of.  View the pictures and please feel free to leave me a comment or two.  And then, if you still feel that you would like to join me in living the life of a haunter, I look forward to making your acquaintance and getting to work with you very soon. — D.K.H.
