Transworld The Dark Zone

The Transworld show has an area that is called The Dark Zone, and as the name says, it's dark. It's where you can get a feel for how the animated props look when there in the light their suppose to be in. As everyone knows, a fake looking prop can look somewhat real in a dark foggy scene and a high quality prop can truly look and "feel" real with the proper lighting. They had some real over the top props there. I really loved the Necromancer made by Scarefactory. It's over 16 ft tall sitting and stands up to about 20 ft. To get an idea on how big this monster of a monster was, he has 3 normal size animated props and a full sized coffin strapped on its back and a full size man thrashes in its hand! Truly a site to see. Nichole loved the levitating bed and the window spectre, also from Scarefactory. These are great for a haunted bed room scene. The one thing that was missing was fast moving, startling animated props. Don't get me wrong, there were a couple good ones, but not as many I would have liked to see. I like insanely fast, thrashing, convulsing, shaking, scare the shit out of you movement. And I don't just mean a Trash Can Trauma or Barrel Popper. I can't wait for next year to see whats new for 2012.
