Sinister Eyes where Shadows Lie

The calendar has flipped and it’s finally official — October 1st. With this comes news — haunt, horror, and Halloween news of course and there’s plenty of it. This particular post celebrates the 7th annual Halloween themed Word of the Week, but before we come to that, I have a few notes to share. Due to shooting part of the Mud Puppets Halloween Special this past weekend I did not visit any haunted attractions. It was a bit painful really, but rest assured haunt fiends that this will not be the case this weekend. Friday night will mark the beginning of the haunt season proper with a visit to Erwin’s Orchards in South Lyon, Slaughter House in Fowlerville, and if time permits a stop at A Nightmare on Elm Road in Webberville! These attractions are all new to myself and my merry band of haunters, so it is with a bang that we seek to kick off the month of October. A detailed post concerning this trip will be posted in a few days.

Another post to be made this week concerns the long awaited 2011 Haunt Awards! The 2011 haunt season was memorable for many reasons and I’ll finally reveal the best from a record breaking season! There will be the usual seven categories: Rotten Pumpkin, Eerie Vibrations, Dark Horse, Killer Automatons, Monster, Pulse Pounder, and Haunt of the Year — in addition I will introduce two new exciting categories — Prop Master and Samhein. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the awards fear not, each will be accompanied by a description and criteria for winning.

One final note before we get to the word — I’d just like to share that my preferred ritual of celebrating October 1st is with a viewing of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, a classic.
