    Jesus loves you, but everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

    Are you still looking for acting help at The Darkness for Transworld? If so, who do I contact?

    Couple updates ... interesting day Keven from Gore Galore was at our place today. He spent the whole day with us... he's making some stuff for us!!!! Got a deal done with UNIT 70 ... they are making a TON of new things including several animations.

    At The Darkness itself there really isn't a lot to report really its going kind of slow because we spent a week cleaning the shop and tearing out all the old scenes inside The Darkness. Finally today they took away the 40 yard container from all the old scenes we removed. Now that this is over we can get down to business of building sets.

    Here is what I can tell you we are totally re-doing upstairs alone... eight sets. I mean totally ripped out and starting from scratch. In addition to that we have ripped out the Terror Visions que line and we are totally redoing that as well including a sculpted foam entry and much more. Terror Visions will have some new paint work done inside and some new props.

    Downstairs nothing is going on there until after the upstairs is done. We have our hands full right now building out these sets that will go into the upstairs. Everything should be very awesome and we are filming a video on the making of it all just like last year... it will be a how to detail video part 4.

    We will be doing a TON OF VIDEO FX just FYI... and we are making them all ourselves this time around so we can get them just the way we want them. We will also utilize some of those Atmoshere FX as well... those are really good!

    Anyway I would say by the end of next week I should have a TON of photos to show you. The website is mostly updated www.thedarkness.com

    Take care.
    Larry

    Larry,
    I had a good time with you and your crew at The Darkness.
    Wow, the crew interaction is the stuff of legend.
    It really is meant for TV. HILARIOUS!
    I mean I was laughing so hard at times I gave myself a headache.

    I am really looking forward to producing the "Monster Parade" for The Darkness Tour.
    And we will be getting right to work on ALL the product we are doing for The Darkness.

    What an amazingly detailed attraction.
    The work you and your crew does is just inspiring.
    thanks again and see you soon.

    Couple updates here... I have been out finding all kinds of cool things to buy to turn the upstairs back into the ultimate haunted mansion. I spent a small fortune last week on trim, wood, and all kinds of antiques. I've included a photo of a hallway we are building this week, a room we are currently themeing and even a snap of Terror Visions. Everyone seems to really love the 3D haunt so I've decided to do some work there as well... we've been painting a lot of the floors and we are totally rebuilding the que line as well. We'll start selling tickets at www.thedarkness.com in january.

    Thanks to Kevin for coming down to see The Darkness the other day... he wanted to measure some spaces for something he's working on for us. We have Unit 70 making all kinds of new stuff for us as well... I would say by next week you'll start to see a TON photos of rooms being built, themed, painted and more. Larry

    Hey folks the beat goes on... here are a couple more photos. Two or rough drawings of stuff we are doing one to the clown house and the other is of a kitchen we plan to build. The other two pics are of a really awesome door jam we built and installed today. We are going all out to make this look like a real haunted mansion let me tell ya... if your haunted house has haunted mansion type scenes then you will love this tour here. Btw the end of week we should have two out of the eight scenes completly done if not three... once they are all painted I'll post some more pics.

    In total we are re-doing eight scenes in the upstairs section and the most complicated is what we are saving for LAST, which will be in the graveyard. So we won't even tough that until January. We are hoping to have all the mansion sets built and painted and themed by the begginging of January. It will take nearly an entire month to build the sets for the graveyard/crypt we are doing.

    Larry

    Hey folks... couple things. As we build this ULTIMATE haunted mansion theme we are working we will be making TWO new HOW to videos... see the covers below. The first DVD will be how to detail and build your haunted mansion sets. We've done three other DVD's but none of them was about a haunted mansion. The second video will be MOSTLY our buddy John Ives showing you how to do GORE! We will actually start filming these today and they will be on sale soon!

    We'll show you how we are building haunted mansion sets from start to finish... it really is a craft to do something like Disney's Haunted Mansion. I can honestly tell you i've already spent about 15,000.00 in old stuff, wood trim, and all kinds of other rusty things. Right now I have someone hunting down every prop I need for the kitchen. This won't be your normal kitchen folks... we will do things we've never done before because otherwise what is the point. The detail will be spot on! Anyway more pics coming soon! Larry
