Home Is Where The Haunt Is

Over the last decade the haunt industry has exploded in the United States. Much of that growth is thanks to the internet allowing amateur-level home haunters to exchange information on techniques and technology. That in turn created a growing pool of semi-professional haunters that created an unparalleled demand for new props, tools, and materials as they moved up into the ranks of the old school "dark attraction" professionals.

Naturally, trade shows have become an integral part of the industry. One of, if not the, most important is Transworld, an annual gathering where dozens of vendors display their wares. The latest show wrapped up last week and there were was some amazing stuff on display.
