This is year my favorite Halloween decorations- the high end ones that they use in haunted houses- have turned out to be the ones that involve Aliens and Morgues.
I guess I’m drawn to these props because I’m a Science Geek and I know my way around an embalming room.
So what do I find the most disturbing about these sets and props? What is it about them that gives me the chills, gives me nightmares, makes me scream ( just a bit) when they come to life and scream and moan and jump at me with their mechanical arms and jaws desperately working before there power is cut off?
I’ll be honest- that’s not my reaction at all.
My reaction is to look around and make sure nobody is watching me smile.
But I am smiling.
And I’m laughing.
I can’t help myself, sometimes.
