It’s Friday so I thought I would share one of the more complicated Halloween projects with you. This is Monster in a Box. This prop is something you see in a lot of professional Haunted House and makes a great scare. Why? It has all the essential elements. It not only makes a ton of Noise it also moves and makes a great distraction from an actor or something else flying out at them on the opposite side of your Haunted House or party. Here’s a sample of the materials from the author:

“No complete parts list for our MIB exists but reading through this guide should give you a good idea of the components we used. In very general terms you will need wood, a Prop-1 control board, a Cowlacious audio board, relays, a power supply, amplified speakers, a windshield wiper motor, light sockets, power receptacle, wire, nuts, bolts, washers, wood screws and other hardware.
