Some hellish fiery sunset shots at home here in Franklin, TN just a few nights ago..

The Krampus/Pumpkinrot Connection!

Pretty cool news from 'The Master of All Haunts" Pumpkinrot.
Another great reason to check out the new Krampus movie coming in December. Mr. Rot has designed some creatures for the film. You get a brief glimpse of things to come in the available trailer. Be sure to visit Pumpkinrot (on a daily basis!) for more details..

A Peek at Krampus

Been wanting to do a Krampus 'traditional" Christmas prop for some time. No idea if the neighbors are ready for this - but with the release of the new film it's probably about as pop-culture as it's going to get. So if you are a neighbor of mine - no this is not Satan or Baphomet or any "evil" religious entity. It's just the guy that's going to steal your kids of you don't put some delicious cookies on my porch on Christmas Eve!

 Got a bit more detail work to do but here's a snap to hold ya over..

The Day After Halloween - Photos

The full yard haunt ran both Friday and Saturday nights as The Creeping Cruds had a pre-Halloween driveway jam (that resulted in some drunken neighbors have a wild time singing Horror Rock choruses)  on Friday. Sunday was a consolidated setup - that resulted in some interesting shots as shown in the Flickr photo album here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsko8ZTjq
Video forthcoming!

For the fourth year in a row the weather gods spared us at the last minute. A massive system that tailed from Canada all the way to the gulf split just in time to spare Tennessee.
This year we added a lot of new colors and spread everything out to cover the entire frontage. This year's additions were a pair of corn sentinels that by accident kinda look like those creepy scarecrows from Beneath the Planet of The Apes. One photo has a foggy surprise if you can spot it.

A few photos here - but the whole lot is posted on my Flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jeanoroid/albums/72157660642664372

This was my short-lived, thoroughly rained-out contribution to the Great Pumpkin Project. Like an idiot I forgot my tripod for night shooting so all I procured was a couple of cellphone snaps.
Went back a second night with a new candle and tripod and someone had smashed him into 100 pieces.
This is just off the square, downtown Franklin on an always spooky no-car stretch of road.
Lots of cars pass by this at night so I suspect it probably caught a few random eyeballs during it's brief life..
