At my Grandma's house on ToT. This is a Halloween night Atmospheric chilled fog effects from two different fog chillers to make fog linger and not fog everything out. A 48qt lgloo Ice Cube cooler Vortex modified for a fogging cauldron, and a ghostofhalloween.com and my contributions to hauntforum.com style trash can with trash bag on outlet for graveyard fog. See the Playlists on my youtube home page for explanations.
Our 48 qt igloo ice cube cooler [My IDEA] diy home-made fog chiller is a modification based on the Vortex Fusion (google it. it's cool. and it's much easier to buy one. But it's the basis of all good ice cube coolers). The DIY chillers were produced using modification ideas we threw about and shared on hauntforum.com (check 'em out. they're good people) and ice chest cooler ideas that pre-date this video. Using the compact cube shape was my idea. It was interesting to share the modification ideas within a community of Yard Haunters. We don't sell these home-made versions. Neither should you. We give credit where credit is due. So should you. Refer to the dates on videos. The most original hauntforum community modification being the trash bag on the outlet to create back pressure to slow down and spread the fog.
The time codes for notable atmospheric fog scenes are as follows. If you're facing the house, the Vortex is used on the left with the witch's cauldron, and the Trash can with trash bag is on the right with the Pirate and Zombie groundbreaker tombstones.
(2) 400w Gemmy fog machines with remote timers were used. A higher wattage would have been to much for that sized yard. I liked the effect.
0:54 48qt Igloo cooler vortex fogging cauldron, 1:39 trash can, 2:01 trash can, 2:43 48qt in background, 2:55 and 3:15 trash can in b/g, 4:51 48qt in b/g, 5:18 48qt w/ cauldron, 5:29 good shot of trash can from behind, 5:53 trash can in b/g, 6:12 trash can in b/g, 7:00 good shot of 48qt w/ cauldron (there was a leak in the chiller so there was an unexpected added effect I liked), 8:30 48qt in b/g, 8:55 good shot of trash can bag from behind.
My entry archway idea was inspired by inflatable archways, haunted house cloth divider doors, UV blacklights and a mausoleum shape. The shorter props were meant to be eye-level for the small ToT's. The life-sized PVC props, fog and archway for the older ToT's to enjoy.
This is edited video from a 50 min video of some of the 165 Trick-or-Treaters by our Yard Haunt display at my Grandma's house before it was sold. We put the display up in 9 hours in the rain. Took it all down in 3 hours. Overall it was a success. Mom, Dad and Sister handed out candy while I took videos.

NOTE: THE HAUNTFORUM.COM DIY YARD HAUNTER'S COMMUNITY IS WHERE THE TRASH BAG ON THE OUTLET MODIFICATION IDEA ORIGINATED. THE TRASH CAN CHILLER IDEA ORIGINATED IN 2001 AT GHOSTSOFHALLOWEEN.COM (SEE PROJECTS: FOG CHILLER).
Standard quality video because youtube changed to HD a couple years after I shot and uploaded this with a $1,000 Sony DCR-TRV30. Top of the line for its day. Equivalent to a Canon G20 today.
