Title: Making Monsters
Post by: packbacker on October 02, 2011, 07:16:02 PM
New show on the Travel Channel....can't tell if this is going to be a series or a one time thing.  Pretty cool as it's the inner workings of a company that makes animatronics for haunted houses.

Very cool, I haven't heard of this.  When does it come on, I'd like to check it out?

It is a series.  Apparently Sunday nights at 8pm on the Travel Channel.  It showed them getting props ready for TransWorld this week.  Next week they put together some huge props for an Alice Cooper concert...

I caught this last night, midway through. I want the monster with head that moves up with the body/costume to run at people. Can't remember the name, but I loved it. I'd like to make a low tech version of that myself for a Halloween party. I believe if I were that company I'd be packing my props in some kind of foam/padding in a crate, and maybe they wouldn't get so beat up on the way.

The Alice Cooper Frankenstein on the latest episode was amazing! They also had a mini-tour of the Morris Costumes warehouse in Charlotte, NC and haunted house (Dr. Evils) that the frightseekers got to see on the spring haunt outing in 2009.
