“Halloween is one of those universal holidays that brings everybody together to celebrate and have fun, and we couldn’t be more excited about our new gear and animations for 2017,” says AtmosFX Co-Founder, Pete Reichert. “Our fans are already telling us they’ve started using our new decorations. From eerie eyes, to a trio of singing ghosts, to realistic-looking phantoms breaking break through walls and haunting homes, our new digital decorations are going to make 2017 Halloween better than ever. As a pioneer in making holiday projections, we pride ourselves on the high-quality decorations our creative team designs, as well as the custom gear we provide to home decorators.”
1. Paranormal Passage™
After an eternity of trying, the spirits of the underworld may have finally discovered a portal into this earthly plane! Paranormal Passage consists of three poltergeist-packed, digital decorations that prove how fragile the barrier between the paranormal and human existence can be.
The Paranormal Passage collection includes several scenes, each designed to be frightfully entertaining®. Each of the scenes come with three versions (standard, flashlight, and spotlight) and are in 1080p HD.
- Spectral Surfaces (Paranormal Passage)
The barrier that protect us from the paranormal is perilously thin — will the agents of the underworld finally break through? Otherworldly hands and faces stretch through your wall or any surface imaginable — pushing the limits of this dimension and your courage. Spectral Surfaces also includes three unique “startle scares” featuring face and hands, hands only, and multiple faces and hands.
Orientations: Horizontal and Vertical
Also includes three spine-tingling startle scares
- Possessed Portrait (Paranormal Passage)
Is this gruesome gallery a wall of portraits or, a portal for evil? A 17th century portrait seems to be possessed by an evil spirit. Is it your imagination or, a malevolent being out to seize your soul?
- Facade of Fright (Paranormal Passage)
It's not just your mind that's cracking up, your wall is too! Behind those expanding ruptures and holes, a most unnerving poltergeist probes for a way into your home — and your mind!
Orientations: Horizontal and Vertical

3. Media Player with Motion Sensor
The AtmosFX Media Player is an exciting way to run your digital decorations® without having to use a laptop or DVD player. This is especially handy if you're running several digital decorations in several locations, or if you're worried about leaving electronics out where they may be damaged or stolen. The media player can be attached projectors, televisions, and other devices that can't play media on their own. Note: the media player is not a projector by itself. Much like a CD player needs a speaker or a DVD player needs a television, the media player has to be attached to an output device. The 2017 version of our player comes with a motion detector which can be used to trigger your decorations to play when someone approaches, or to play a "startle scare" decoration when a creature jumps or transforms. The AtmosFX Media Player is recommended for decorations that fade to black between scenes.
The AtmosFX Media Player is also compatible with additional digital content including music, movies and photos. It is also very small, making it incredibly easy to hide as part of a full projector setup. If you utilize an intricate setup with multiple projectors, this is the perfect solution.
As an added bonus, each AtmosFX Media Player is packaged with a $9.99 promotional code, which can be redeemed for a free digital decoration download. To take advantage of this special offer, add any single scene download to your cart and enter the included code to the discount box at checkout. Note: Trick ‘r Treat scenes are excluded.
The AtmosFX Media Player includes:
- UL power adapter
- 6” HDMI cable
- AtmosFX Media Player
- Motion sensor with 10’ cord
- Remote control (2 AAA batteries not included)

Quiet when you need him to be, but ever ready to be the center of attention, Gourdy is always ready to celebrate Halloween — or anytime of year! Gourdy is the pumpkin-headed Guardian of Halloween who seems to have taken up residence in our offices. Why? We’re not sure. Nobody asked him but he seems to be staying. You’ll see Gourdy featured in future editions of our newsletter, on social media, and in a series of forthcoming videos
- The AtmosFX Halloween Hits— There is no more powerful way to set the mood for Halloween parties, gothic dinner, or kid-friendly evening of ghost stories than with a powerful soundtrack. To help our customers summon up the perfect soundscape, we present the AtmosFX Halloween Hits Album. Sinister, ominous, yet with a touch of mischievous whimsy, the album features songs from the digital decoration® collections: Jack-O’-Lantern Jamboree™, Witching Hour™, and Boo Crew™. The whole family can sing along with spooktacular ghosts, creepy pumpkins, or a whimsical witch. Each song also comes with an instrumental version fans can play in the background while exchanging their own spooky tales. This is the latest brainchild from the pair-of-Petes: Pete Williams and Pete Reichert — those mad geniuses who founded AtmosFX and wrote the lyrics and music. This musical collection is great for Halloween parties or anytime you just want to get in the haunted holiday mood.
