Keeping the Freak in the Family

February 25, 2016 | Posted in Freak of the Week

Family bonding is important, whether it’s trips to the lake, game nights, or coming up with Halloween displays to delight the neighborhood. This week’s Freak of the Week is Paul Reynolds, and he and his two teenage boys have kept their Halloween obsession, er... we mean dedication alive for the past several years, recently adding our Ghostly Apparitions digital decoration to their fright fest.

Paul and his boys like to brainstorm new scare concepts each year, using a combination of creative homemade and store bought decorations to create their display. Ghostly Apparitions was actually a last minute addition just an hour before trick or treaters arrived, and it was a smash hit!

We hope Paul stocked up on a truckload of candy for the tons of new Halloween lovers who stopped by to share how impressed they were with his decorations. “I was amazed at how many parents stopped to watch children go up to our door for ten, twenty, and even thirty minutes. I would overhear parents talking with one another about how cool the AtmosFEARfx decorations were and that they loved them.” Paul captured some great reactions in his video, which you can hear throughout the filming.

Paul’s four-year-old daughter was a fan of the spooky spectacle just like her older brothers, who are seen scaring their guests with some freaky masks. (We see a great future in scare acting for those two!) The Reynolds are a family that loves to entertain and enjoys a ghostly good time, so it’ll just get bigger and better in the years to come. “We are looking forward to adding more AtmosFEARfx decorations for Halloween 2016. Our next purchases will be Bone Chillers and Jack-O’-Lantern Jamboree and we have great ideas on how we will use them!”

Thanks to Paul’s eye-catching home display, he’s earned the title Freak of the Week, and a free digital download. We can’t wait to see what he and the kids come up with next year.
