I know last year (or maybe the year before) there was a thread where people posted their cast pictures. Well I posted Darkness cast pictures that year - but they were not very good, so this year, I was able to bring in a real photographer to take our cast pictures. Due to some delays, Photoshop work, etc - I am now able to share them. :)

So, here are 3 cast pictures we took for the 2010 season! This is not the entire cast because some people just couldn't manage to show up that early. lol :) Enjoy!

Oh cool cast photos! I love cast photos but you will rarely find me in them because I always look like crow. I take poop photos.

Here are our cast photos from the past 2 years, in the first one (2009) I am blond. In the second photo (2010) I am wearing a cowboy hat.

Lets see some more haunt cast photos!!

Great Photos! Thanks for starting this thread, it's always cool to see the people behind the scares.

For some reason Im usually still acting when they do the cast pix at many of the haunts I have worked at or they simply didnt do cast pictures at the end of the year.

So instead I'll share 2 Jakprints pictures...one from last year's Halloween of some of the people that dressed up, then one of just me and one of on of our other employees.

I know I have a couple old cast pics laying around somewhere that im in but id have to do some digging to find them.

Here ya go Babe! Not everyone but some were missing about 25 or 30 of the bunch had done left when we did the picture! Shane and it's they are a good bunch! Shane this time!

There has been no photo shop done to this photo. We have a real giant in our cast. Really!:)

I love shane....but I think BEN WINS!!!

post script: it's not about who wins, but the fact LURKER definitely photo-shopped that pic together! hahaha! Life. Made!

01-12-2011, 07:34 AM
Okay, I confess, I did add two folks. Don Campbell, the giant, isn't really that size, but he is a giant when it comes to acting. He just has a nasty habit of missing picture taking moments. I decided to over compensate for his habit by adding him to the photo, and making him a giant in the process.

01-12-2011, 08:00 AM
I have to agree I thought the same thing LOL! Ben you show off! :) When I seen that picture I am like wow that's cool! Ben seriously that's great! Shane and it's they are all cool! Shane this time!

01-12-2011, 08:09 AM
A bit surprised by how small the crew are in these pics, with the exception of Ben's crew and Shane who said that was about half his team. I always read on sites that they have 40-50 actors++?

I guess the trick is not quantity it's quality and getting one actor to scare them 2-3 times...

Great pics though thanks for sharing.

Great Photos! Thanks for starting this thread, it's always cool to see the people behind the scares.


I believe you were the one that started this thread last year? I always love your pictures that have those cool lighting effects.

Thanks for posting, guys! These pictures look great. Keep posting!

And DA,
I'm not sure how many actors we are missing in ours. I want to say about 20-25. But we have such a flux in actors throughout the season, it's hard to keep track of an actual cast number. And it's hard to get people to show up early... especially if they are only acting for the money. The ones in the photos are clearly our die-hard Halloween junkies. :)

01-12-2011, 02:26 PM
It is great to see all of the cool costumes and makeup - always inspiring!
Our standard acting cast was a little over 100 most nights but more on weekends. This photo was on Oct 31, maybe closer to or slightly more than 125 actors worked that night with more Ops staff etc as well. We take the photo traditionally on Halloween night just after the show closes, so it really only shows who worked that particular night. The pool was more like 250-275 actors who worked this year - since we are open every night ( 35 nights last year) we need a deeper pool of actors so that they can swap out.

For many years the cast was more like 40 a night, but when we started putting so many into the parking lot and staffing up for more guests the number grew.

Anyway thanks for the nice comments, Great photos so far I am eager to see more!

Great pics everyone, loved yours Karl! You should post here more often.

It's real tough to get every one together at once. We get as many as we can then take individual shots any chance we get, sometimes as the show is going on. I love these silhouette photos taken before the show by Artifact Images. The first silo is me on Halloween night right before we opened. I can't believe the clouds formed a skull over my head, no Photoshop.

Cool thread, I hope it keeps going. You really get a feel for each show by the characters in the photos. Ben's crew has to be the biggest I've seen. I'd love to make it down there some time.

Great pics everyone!!! This is something nice everyone can share because it gives everyone a chance to see the differant charictors everyone else has or uses.

I know a lot of people spend a LOT of time on their costumes. It also takes special people to act in them.

So many thanks to those who have shared!!!

Hey All, so I finally dug up last May's Relay for Life cast photo, it isn't everybody and it was taken before details were done (we set up in one day) so this was maybe half the people involved who could stop and take a picture lol. :)

01-16-2011, 12:55 PM
Here's a link to our cast picture on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=471480386384&set=a.395357371384.165106.96959806384

Like a few others, we took this at the end of the night and about 15 people were not in it! But, this is about 90% of all of us! We love our cast and they are remarkable actors! I think if you scroll through the pictures you'll see the cast broken down by attraction.

Love this thread! Great seeing everyones cast, especially in costume and make-up! -Tyler

This picture was taken before we opened Halloween Night and we got almost the entire crew in it. I think we may have missed 2 or 3 people, but other than that, this is the entire 2010 Raycliff Fright Team!


And they are AWESOME!!!;)


01-16-2011, 07:59 PM
I just gotta say it. This is one of the coolest threads I have ever seen here. Love seeing all the pics.

I was thinking... I know you are doing a memorial slideshow or something at the Insane SHANE :D party and it would be awesome to have one of Cast photos such as these while we are getting our drink on wouldn't it?

Just a thought.

If I understand AJ correctly, he was wondering if you could generate an additional slide show for your party composed of the cast pictures from various haunts, such as the pictures on this thread or any pictures people would want to submit.

I think that's a great idea! What if we also included pictures of TransWorld past?

01-16-2011, 09:09 PM
Cast photos are the best, we have a ton of them. I like ones with the actors in their scenes.

Here are a few more to keep the thread going.

No no, you were perfectly clear. We all just need to speak slower when we talk to Shane.

Shane, I hope I typed my previous response slow enough for you to understand. ;)

JK! Love you, Shane!!!

01-17-2011, 08:08 AM
So who want's to work on this project of getting the photos and putting it on disk for me? Shane and it's any takers? Shane

01-18-2011, 12:17 PM
This pic was fun to take. They originally all just stood there until I asked them to do an action shot.

The rest of the pics on this post are all cool, too.

01-18-2011, 08:22 PM

This is a cool thread, I know there must be more cast photos and actor photos out there. Here are a few more to keep it going. Remember to get A.J. your photos for Shane's slide show.

Do you want cast photos from people just on the haunt world photos ? Or do you want cast photos in general ? I know a good bit of haunts that are not on the forums.

Cast photos in general! Also send your character shots as Eric has done. Send them to me!!!

Everyone listen up. If your pics are in this thread and you want them included in the slideshow you have to let me know I have your permission! I will not include any pics I don't have permission to include whether they appear in this thread or not.

01-19-2011, 08:32 AM
No were looking for cast photos from any Haunt whether or not they are members here. Get your photos to AJ. Shane and it's any haunts out there! Shane

Thanks Kelly, you're in. Everyone just PM me if you want to give permission. I don't want to bog down this thread with a bunch of posts giving permission.

We do not have a full cast photo, but here are some individuals...




Fear Unfathomed
01-19-2011, 08:09 PM
Here's some individual shots that I have.

The first 2 are pictures that the Belleville News Democrat took of me after they interviewed Kip and I. This is my newest character, Priscilla Dawson.

The next 2 were taken by Insight Marketing & Communications. The girl in the wedding dress is Cora (RenesmeeWolfe). The maid costume is my first character, Annabel Dawson.

The last one was taken by the videographer, Jay Prescott of J&J Films, at Netherworld. I had the outstanding pleasure of being able to slide with their lead slider, Joe, this October.

Enjoy and keep posting your favorites!

I just wanted to tell you how great it is to see make up done so well and by that I mean covering all the skin like the the throat and side and back of the neck. Nothing looks worse than seeing a great face make up job and the neck is exposed, or the hands, you guys did a terrific job!

Those are INCREDIBLE!! I think your 2nd picture is one of my favorites. That make-up is absolutely unbelievable!

Very nice job!

That mask came from the Spirit Halloween store but I can't seem to find it online now. I have seen it before though. I don't know who makes it, the actor brought it himself and doctored it up.


Great shots! I love the black light ones, the glowing make up is great. Awesome job on the other characters as well.


Kick ass make up jobs on those characters! I love the contacts with the screens on them. I think my favorite photo is the spider girl. I also like the actor and scene in the garage. The corps bride and groom make up is top notch!

Lets keep this thread going with some more. With all the haunts on here there has to be more photos of actors. It's awesome to see them getting recognition. They are the ones that make our shows.

I would also like to thank Artifact Images for all the Haunted Overload photos. They do an awesome job pulling actors aside before during and after the show to get as many as they can close up. The actors really love it. They use the photos for avatars or on Facebook etc. If anyone is getting married in the NH area they are the best wedding or portrait photographers around.

Ive seen it somewhere before too Eric. Thanks for the info. New England Nightmares makeup looks great!

Here's a few from our 2010 Haunt!. The mask in the first pic is by Fearscape Studios. Eric you have this one as well, great mask isn't it?




01-23-2011, 11:47 AM
Those are awesome! Yeah, I love that mask. Fearscape is great to deal with too, I have a bunch of their clown masks. That one is called Kasper, it freaks people out.

This first one is the Sea Hag from Trick or Treat Studios. I got a bunch of their masks at TW last year and am very pleased. Great prices and quality. I always need masks like this around for last minute guest actors.





Shots like this are hard as hell to get. The photographer has to use the flash at just the right time to capture the scare. This one looks cool and was timed well.

These pictures are from when I acted at The Castle of Carnage in Dayton, Ohio, in June 2009. I believe this awesome Jaycee haunt was also on the MHC tour in 2008.

I worked in Ohio for one summer and while there, I volunteered at this haunt, helping them build and set-up for the next season. In June, they decided to open for a weekend just for fun - and boy was it! :) Great Jaycee haunt - check it out if you get the chance! Absolutely GREAT crew as well!

Pictures were taken by The Dayton Daily News.

Though it may be a little behind on the post...I just wanted to share this link has has various cast/haunt photos from the USS Nightmare. Keeping with the thread's topic: there is a staff photo that shows about half of our crew at a trip to St. Rita's Haunted House.

I hope you enjoy!
