I put this supercut together something like 15 years ago (woah) featuring a bunch of my favorite slasher movie moments.. thought this group might enjoy.
Let the bodies hit the floor!

Soon, very soon.

Just doing some planning here... Anyone know who spooky uses for freight, how much the shipping costs are at checkout, and how long it would approx take to arrive near chicago? I live about 2-1/2 hrs away and wondering if I should just rent a truck and pick it up myself…possible LTL shipping damage are of concern or should I not worry about that…

#2305 51 days ago

If you get a Halloween would you consider removing all the armor and re-powder it? Gold huh? So if you did re-powder coat the game what color would you go with? I'm thinking black with orange speckles or orange with black speckles ... you know kind of like HALLOWEEN! LOL

So basically the question is do you like the powder coating as is, or would you consider changing the color of the powder coat and what color.

I'd be interested to hear thoughts.

My R&M came by R+L but i believe some folks had FedEx deliver theirs.
Looking at just under $400 for shipping.
If i were 2.5 hrs away, i'd drive and pick it up for the same reasons you mentioned.
My R&M had a little carton damage but nothing wrong with the pin.

#2307 51 days ago

Just got notice that the one headed to North End Pub in Lafayette, IN should be ready next week!

Yeah. I say go pick it up if that close. The stress of worrying every time I have pin delivered would be worth the drive.

Powder coating on the CE is dark gold…it fits the theme very well IMO. I’d wait to make that decision until you see it In person.

Oh hell ya, go pick it up. Just the experience of going there is worth the drive

#2315 51 days ago

I am planning on driving to get it and I am like 8 hours away myself.

I have this in mind, but everyone that has seen it in person says the gold looks great.

#2318 51 days ago

I don’t mind the gold but the pumpkins over the speakers should be orange. I’ll wait until I get mine before committing to the change.

#2319 51 days ago

I saw this at a Halloween store today. Does it look familiar?

It would be cool to see the clip of Loomis shooting Michael and him falling off the balcony on the LCD when the magnet locks the ball after going up the ramp on the upper playfield.

Gold powder coating has ZERO to do with Halloween. There are many things about the game that leave me perplexed but the powder coating is at the top of the list. Personally I would have rather seen simple cabinet artwork black with the logo like the original movie poster. Then power coated orange or black. This is just me... I was just trying to see what colors people might consider based on the way the art is now.

Has anyone considered changing their powder coat?

#2322 51 days ago

On another note has anyone made mods for this game yet? I could suggest a few... new flipper bats. Leaves? How about blood stained butcher knife instead.

How about a Mike Myers with ghost sheet, glasses and light up eyes for the upper playfield house. How about a plastic cut out of Jamie Lee Curtis screaming for the staircase. I can see a lot of opportunities to upgrade the theming. How about a Pumpkin ball shooter like Stern did Jurassic Park with a light that makes the pumpkin eyes flicker. Again lots of opportunities here. Can't wait to see what someone comes up with.

Quoted from icyjones:

I'm honestly considering driving out there to get my Ultraman when it's time. The gas (even at 3.25/gallon) would cost less than I expect shipping to. It's only 1800 miles round trip, probably need 3-4 days to get er done. Never been to Iowa or Illinois, so could check those off the list.

Respect. That’s dedication - and here I am debating whether to drive only 2-1/2 hours…shame on me. I just need to find a truck or SUV - all I have is a sedan.

#2326 50 days ago

I'd love to pick ours up in Benton. But its 1747 miles each way. Maybe I'll buy a canopy for my pickup and do it,,,,, talkin myself into it

#2327 50 days ago

I've picked up all my spooky games in person so far, the drive sucks, but seeing that place and crew is worth it to me.

We were blessed with a code update. It’s a monster update. We will redo some videos soon. Much more of everything (call outs, sounds effects, videos, topper and speaker lights). Everyone who got one is going to love this game!

Found a friend who wants to help and we’re gonna take a ride up in his minivan.

I'm not sure if this was posted before, but Marco did a nice look under the hood on Halloween. A lot of good info here.

Here’s the first video of the new code. This is a MASSIVE update. It will take time for us to figure everything out. We are very mediocre players 8). In this video Andi (my wife) is trying to show as many Pumpkin Modes as possible. I think she gets through 3. New animations, new call outs, new light shows, and adjusted sound effects. Some have asked about the high pitched noise when you hit the scoop. It’s still used, but other sounds as well…so it waters it down nicely. Plus, the whole point of horror music is to create an atmosphere of discomfort and tension…so irritating noises are the norm…but Spooky does a good job controlling it…IMO. Oh, I repointed my pumpkin head, but it keeps slowly turning…I think it’s possessed!

#2336 50 days ago

Awesome. Keep them vids comin!!

#2337 50 days ago

Thank you I like the additions - I didn’t notice any video clips is that a diff mode or still waiting?

Ah, sorry…there are more video clips from the movie…but they are harder to get to and see..I meant new animation clips. Sorry.

#2341 50 days ago

One more tonight. You’ll see another Pumpkin Mode “Bob and Lynda’s Demise” and some more upper playfield.

#2342 50 days ago

Wow, huge improvements! Love the music in house mode now.

Is it my imagination or is the screen tilted back more than Rick and Morty? Does it give a better view for a taller person vs RM? Can you tell that the screen quality is any darker/crisper or does it seem the same?
Thanks for all your images/vids

I’m shaking right now .This code is just starting to move and I’m good whichever way they roll with this for sure!I’m feeling it big time!So far ,it seems your trying to escape .I’m kinda hoping there’s either a mode or a side game that puts me in Michael’s shoes and I’m doing the chasing . Please don’t be afraid ,I’m a boring family guy lmao.I was just playing LZ and thought to myself if I pick a victim to chase the game will give me a chore either in sequenced combos or total hits on a certain shot .Timed kill of course with film footage .Just food for thought
