THE BASEMENT’S HALLOWEEN HAVEN: Krampus by Spirit

Though we are heading into the Christmas season, this huge prop is actually more suited for December than October. When it comes to animatronics, I am not always a fan of those put out by Spirit Halloween. Thankfully they put most of them on display, working, in their stores so that you can see exactly what they do and their quality. More often then not the quality is lacking unfortunately.

THE BASEMENTS HALLOWEEN HAVEN: Way to Celebrate Skeleton Duo Carrying Coffin from Walmart

So far in this series I have been praising Home Depot and their Home Accents line of Halloween props. This time some praise needs to go out to Walmart for this very cool display that looks great, is functional and very reasonably priced!

THE BASEMENT’S HALLOWEEN HAVEN: Home Accents Holiday 12 ft. Giant-Sized Skeleton with LifeEyes

It seems that for the 2020 season, this huge prop from Home Depot’s Home Accents line, is the one to have, and is quickly becoming the hardest to get. Before I get into this item, the 12 Foot Giant-Sized Skeleton with Life Eyes, let me get into a bit of the trouble I had getting one of these for myself.

THE BASEMENT’S HALLOWEEN HAVEN: Must Watch Movies for the Halloween Season

There are so many facets to the Halloween season. There’s decorating, picking out and wearing costumes, listening to spooky music and of course there’s trick-or-treating. Another big part of the season is movie watching, and there certainly are many out there that are perfect to set the mood for October. This is not a count-down list but a listing of random movies that I try to watch every year leading up to Halloween.

HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH (1983)

I know a lot of people didn’t like HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH, mostly due in part to the fact that it didn’t continue the Michael Myers storyline from parts one and two. Even though the basic story of this movie is totally unbelievable, on the verge of being ridiculous, it is still a fun movie and if you are willing to suspend your disbelief, you will enjoy it! The cast is fun and the special effects are gruesome enough for most gorehounds. I also enjoyed the limited look at the inner workings of Don Post Studios, who actually made the skull, witch and pumpkin masks used in the film. Both Tom Atkins and Stacey Nelkin are great here.

THE BASEMENT’S HALLOWEEN HAVEN: Home Depot

It’s mid-August and you know what that means! It’s time to start decorating for Halloween. In this household we celebrate Halloween more than Christmas and keep our decorations up for a much longer period of time. Though it’s still technically summer, the Spirit Halloween stores have begun opening and the pumpkin beers are on the shelf. This is my favorite time of year.
