Halloween Sound Effects
Setting the right atmosphere is important for any holiday, but it is especially important for Halloween. Halloween decorations, costumes, and of course candy are what make a good Halloween party. Nonetheless, one of the most often neglected elements of Halloween decorating is also one of the most important ones. Put on a tape of free Halloween sound effects and you’re guaranteed to get people into the spirit of the holiday. Without it, Halloween just won’t quite feel right.
There are plenty of different kinds of Halloween sound effects. If you are having trick-or-treaters come to your house, you should get the creaky door haunted house kind of sound effects tapes that are so popular with kids. No matter how many years go by, kids always love these. As little kids, they find the spooky noises to be genuinely terrifying. As teenagers, they think they are amusing but cool nonetheless. Even adults like them.
Then again, Halloween music can make a great alternative to Halloween sound effects. There are plenty of different kinds of Halloween music out there. One of the most popular kinds, of course, is the science fiction Theremin dominated electronic Halloween sound effects music. Get a CD of music by the band Goblins, for example, or anything else that features prominently in the Italian horror films. Then again, classical or especially baroque music can often be quite appropriate on Halloween. Night on Bald Mountain is just one example of a composition that people associate with the holiday. I personally prefer the organ music of Bach. Passacaglia is especially creepy, although the Toccata in Fugue has certain timelessness when it comes to Halloween.
Sometimes, I like to mix up the different Halloween sound effects. I will start with a sound effects Halloween cd early on in the evening, Move on to some Italian horror music, and ends everything on a nice classical note with some organ concertos. You can also put things on randomizers so that you never know what weird Halloween track is about to come on. Some people even like to use modern electronic music designed for Halloween. I have heard some pretty spooky rave music in my time which incorporates interviews with serial killers, old newsreels, and sounds from horror movies. This can be a little bit scary for kids, so you should watch who you expose to it. There is always cute ghost music for younger listeners
Halloween Yard Decorations
There are some neighborhoods that come alive for the Halloween season, and some that remain relatively dark. If you are on one of the streets that seem to become an entirely different place each year, you may want to get in on the action. One of the best ways to get in on the fun is to have some interesting Halloween yard decorations that you can use from year to year. Some may only last one season, but others can be put away to be used time and time again. No matter what your personality, there is something fun out there just for you.
When you want to have a cemetery for your Halloween yard decorations, you are in luck. There are tons of ways to do this, and they no longer have to look so cheesy -- though there is nothing wrong with that look if that is what you want to go with for your lawn. Many of the new styles of these popular Halloween yard decorations look so real that you may not be able to tell the difference until you get right up to them for a close inspection. They come with some very funny sayings at times, so you can go spooky and funny at the same time.
If you want to go with something lighter for your Halloween yard decorations, as in things your children will love at a younger age, you can find a variety of blow-up decorations like witches, pumpkins, and some other interesting items. Some of these are lit up from the inside, and some come with a wind machine that allows them to blow in the breeze for a very cool effect. These Halloween yard decorations are much like the ones you see at Christmas that feature various Christmas characters and themes.
You can also come up with some great designs on your own by buying odd Halloween yard decorations and coming up with your own layout. You can find spooky trees that you can light up, funky fences to have around your cemetery, and perhaps some skulls, webs, and pumpkins to go with them. You can use fog machines to add a very eerie feeling to the entire set up, and don’t forget the sound effects. You may have the yard that all the kids are talking about, and can’t wait to see the next year and the year after that
