Shier Terror is a free home haunt open to all ages on Halloween night. It may be too dark and scary for little ones (and some adults). This is a display haunted house with animated props, strobe lights, fog, and creepy crawlies. Photography is permitted but you may upset the spirits.
It all started as a static display on the front porch. I wanted to do more than just turn on the porch light and set out a couple of pumpkins.
I took a white bedsheet and fluorescent spray paint and a black light. The eery glow was all it took to make the whole thing seem like a big deal. I wore a "Scream" costume and sat silently in a chair. People didn't know if I was real or not. Sometimes I moved, sometimes not. The most fun was waiting for the kids to walk past to ring the bell and then I would scare their parents.
Things grew from there. Joining the local haunt group introduced me to things I never thought I would do like pneumatics. Now my biggest problem is not getting overloaded with projects to add to the haunt. - Scott Shier
