Freak of the Week- September 15, 2017

September 15, 2017 | Posted in Freak of the Week


This is the time of the year that our Freak of the Week candidates start coming in hot. And there’s nothing that makes us happier than seeing the many, many amazing ideas created by our AtmosFREAKS.

Take, for example, this submission from Eddie Cook. Photographed last Halloween in Cabot, Arkansas, Eddie put together a completely immersive Zombie Invasion! experience with just three projectors, some speakers, some spare plywood, and a bunch of red floodlights. As you can see by the video below, the effect is quite compelling.

Eddie tells us that this is only the second year he’s decorated with AtmosFX Digital Decorations – he first learned about us after the 2015 Halloween season. Better late than never! He jokes that, after all, it gave him a full year to plan for the following year.

For his first year, Eddie rear-projected Night Stalkers into a single window in the front of his house. That alone brought rave reviews from his neighbors – and lines of cars down the street.

The following year, he brought down the house, so to speak, with zombies. All three windows are rear-projected, and he hooked-up speakers to each projector and placed them by each window. Once Eddie’s house was completely decked-out in full zombie-mode, he used social media to get the word out. To no one’s surprise, everyone re-posted and shared his original post. The results reached nearly apocalyptic proportions.

“The street was packed the whole night,” Eddie recalls. “All the neighbors also participated by having treats and showing support.”

That kind of community spirit is exactly what makes Halloween so great, Eddie! It's also what makes you this week’s Freak of the Week! We can’t wait to see what you come up with this year!
