The Strawman: Video

Wasn't planning on putting together a video this year, but decided to take some night footage at literally the final hour.  Click below for a very short vid which kinda captures what it was like visiting the porch on October 31st.

The track playing is from Halloween at High Noon's latest album Decayed, "The Unseen," by Lunar Veil (same group which wrote the original score for 2015's video).

My two year old said, "Wooooah!" LOL. Longer than I expected, so fun to watch since we couldn't be there. You guys do SUCH a beautiful job. A serious piece of art.

The song used definitely gave off a different vibe for me than the poem you used with your pictures on the blog. Neither one was better, but I enjoyed experiencing the haunt differently. Thank you for sharing with us!

Amazing! Makes me feel like I'm there in person. The fog looks great!

Excellent!!

i like how the video and soundscape together gave that "just given a psychological drug, tribal feel".

AMAZING. Thank you for posting this video! It allows us to imagine how everything looks in person, and how it would feel being there among your creations. Your porch is like a portal to another world! I wish I could just live there until next Fall. :)

Beginning...is AWESOME, the way you almost stumble up into it. Very cool. A favorite track off the new disc...perfection.

Love that you chose "The Unseen", since they made a video for "The Unheard" using your haunt from 2015! GREAT choice! (and I'm still listening to "Decayed" all the damned time! Can't get enough of it!!!)

Awwwwww!!! it's Fabulous!!!

the voice that says, "the Unseen" is totally the voice of The Strawman, that's exactly what he sounds like each year, when he steps down from his stalks of straw & says hello to the all Halloweens that have passed on. the timbre in that recorded voice, is a perfect match for the Strawman..<333

i really love the purpley bruised colours of the lighting too, sooooooooo pretty & magical. Perfect!!!! i love having the chance of talking a little stroll thru your October Country, all by myself & at anytime i want. Thanks!!!! : )

Last year..HAHAHAHHAH!!!! cause that Killer Cam (peeping thru the kitchen door, i think) was Wonderful too!!!!
