Try this at home: Halloween pros from the Mortuary share some special-effects secrets

The Mortuary Haunted House in New Orleans smells like, well … Hell.

It’s true. And there’s a lesson here for Halloween home decorators.

Mortuary owner Jeff Borne and creative director Christian Stokes have created an experience that assaults the senses, set to the theme of hell-fire and brimstone. One example of their attention to detail is the aroma that wafts through to make the building smell like it’s actually burning. The name of the scent? Hell. Really.


The Mortuary partners with AtmosFX, a company that creates ominous Halloween videos, as well as some themed to other holidays. Videos can be purchased online and downloaded, then flashed up on any TV, monitor or projector screen to place the digital scenes on your windows and walls, or on props and in yards.
