We've added a calendar to the site where we'll post various events that are haunt / Halloween / horror related, pretty much anywhere. Feel free to add your own event to this calendar; we're all about promotion here (provided it relates to the criteria above)! Anything tagged with "We'll Be There!" means just that - we plan on being there personally.
HauntedHouseTour's own Donna Ruwe is a friend of Jay Woelfel (filmmaker) who has a new movie titled Asylum of Darness which hits on-demand today. I've already bought my digital copy after watching the trailer. Check out it out below! -Todd
We came across a great article featuring Kristen Warf of Louisville's Haunted Hotel. We stopped by to speak with her at Transworld where she was selling the Sinister FX masks mentioned in the article. These masks are legit! Keep up the great work, Kristin!!
...or should we say morning? Other than shaking some hands before we left, the only thing on the agenda was a quick interview for Todd with the Haunted Attractions Network / Flatline Radio. You can watch it here (very first one):
All in all it was a great trip and highly beneficial for what we are trying to do with this site going forward.
This is spring and summer, keep a lookout for additions and new features to HHT. To be sure you don't miss the most important announcements, sign up for the newsletter on the contact page. We also plan on running various contest and giveaways so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter (Instagram and Snapchat coming soon)!
And now, time for sleep...
Wow. What a day.
We we finished walking the floor and met with more of our favorite vendors. We stopped by to give a personal thanks to Chad Savage for making our incredible new logo. Teresa and Todd bought some prints as well. Chad is amazing!
Todd attended a digital marketing seminar hosted by Massive Noise. With our vision for the site being so large in scope, we can use all the direction we can get!
We also spent time talking with Jim Millspaugh from The Big Scary Show, giving him some insight to our vision regarding the future of HauntedHouseTour.com.
The night concluded with a party at the City Museum - that's one crazy place. Check it out if you're ever in St. Louis.
It's been an exhausting day but it's great to be a part of this mid-year congregation of haunters!
We arrived on the show floor later in the day...around 2:30 - 3:00 so we did not have a lot of time to explore the massive layout.
We did run into some familiar faces already - Darrell Smith from Stillwell Manor (Anderson, IN) and Richard Teachout from Asylum Props / Asylum Haunted Scream Park (Louisville, KY).
Todd made a quick visit to the Norcostco booth to get some coating materials.
The rest of the afternoon was simply enjoying the vast amounts of eye candy...we've barely scratched the surface!
It's time for our yearly migration to St. Louis for the best time ever -Transworld. This event is where haunters come from all over to learn, teach, buy, network and of course, party.
We we will post updates via Facebook (/hauntedhousetour) and twitter (@hh_tour) so keep a watch on those.
We we will have a full report right here after the weekend!
Welcome to the first look of the new HauntedHouseTour.com. There's not much...yet.
We still need to migrate over our recent years' review, work out the kinks of our new communal rating system and well, a lot more. However, I wanted to get this initial page up in time for Transworld in late March.
Getting the site live now also gives you the opportunity to help mold the site ahead of haunt season, so be sure to let us know what you think!
