Halloween 2015 Open house and possible group ressurection

Ahh, How time flies by. Hookerman MnT group is "At rest" for the time Being. But There is some sign of life for the future. A few new friends are pushing me to resurrect the group and start fresh.  I'll post updates if warranted and will hopefully post a schedule for 2016.

With Halloween a Week away our haunt is now even bigger and better. With a late start this year it's been a struggle to get the haunt up to it's former glory, but somehow we always come through. A reminder to anyone that's interested that our annual Open House and walkthrough will be Friday Oct 30th, 7:00pm- . No Invitation needed.

Happy Haunting

Scheduling some meetings??

Good to see you post Patrick. I've had a very busy summer with my business, but I'm getting the itch to get back to building. I'll schedule a meeting if there is any interest.

Haunt at Mine Hill 2013 (+playlist)

2014 schedule

I've been pretty busy in the last several months and I haven't really been promoting the Hookerman MnT (Meet and Take) group. For those that may not know, we are a group of Halloween enthusiasts that realize that in order to do something a little more special than the average Halloween decorator, we need to make things year round for our displays. Often we will select a project that is inexpensive but will yield spectacular results such as building our own Tombstones and obelisks as well as making and modifying creatures like Zombies and skeletons and ghosts. If you want to make Halloween decorations that are far superior than store bought for a LOT LESS Money. please come join our group. Besides, there isn't a better feeling than creating something that is made from your own two hands.

We always meet on the 3rd Saturday of every month possibly with the exception of October for obvious reasons. If you are interested in checking it out, contact me at

Warning!!!  Building Halloween stuff can become addicting.

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted. We had a really successful and fun meeting today getting several older projects closer to being finished. I'm hoping that more people find us and become interested in what we do.  Even a casual halloween lovers would become infected by the halloween bug if they spent a day with our great group..

I'm going to try to do a better job of updating what we have done and what we are doing in the future. Please don't shy and post a message even if your a casuals passer by.

January 2012 Meeting

Hi everyone,

Come join us 
Make Halloween Inexpensive, More Fun, and even More rewarding

We will be meeting again this Saturday Jan 28th at around 11am. Anyone interested in joining us is welcome.  Just contact me at for the address and directions.  We are still a small but very ambitious group that is dedicated to having fun, building new props, and learning new skills as well as teaching others.

This weekend, We'll be building a modified air cannon, and a  REALLY CHEEP Motorized Coffin Lid Lifter like the one below.

It's based on my original coffin Creep as seen below. The original has an expensive motor in it and I decided to change the design to make it more affordable.

For those that embrace Halloween as more than a one day holiday, come join us for a fun day building and sharing.
