Only 365 days to go...

Thanks to all for another wonderful Halloween season. 2013 proved to be our best year yet in terms of props, lights, scares and visitors. We're already making our plans for an even bigger and better Spirits on Sproat in 2014. Check back to starting next September for the latest updates. Happy Halloween!

Now you see him, now you don't

Look closely--that eerie image in the shadows could just be an illusion; or it could be the Invisible Man, one of our more recent enlistees in the Gallery of the Dead. He's a fascinating subject. Consider these facts:
  • Favorite songs: I’m Looking Through You, You Won’t See Me
  • Pet peeve: Being ignored while flashing strangers in his raincoat
  • Secret shame: Pulls his eyebrow hairs off every time he removes the duct tape from his head
  • Little-known fact: Sued by the mummy for use of his likeness

Time for an terror!

Keep your test tubes and syringes far away from the Mad Scientist--he's likely to use them on his poor victim, the subject of horrible and insane experiments. Among the latest in our 2013 series of new monsters, this duo personifies weird science run amok. Here's what we know about this gruesome twosome:
  • Nickname: Beaker breath
  • Greatest inventions: The Clapper, Mr. Microphone, Snugglie (the wearable blanket with built-in fabric softener)
  • Most recent job: Sarah Palin’s campaign manager

  • Known for: Climbing trees, tickling the ivories, chasing after cars 
  • Nicknames: Papa Smurf, Blue Man Ghoul, Spock ears 
  • Secret shame: Hasn’t grown an inch since 7th grade 
  • Voted in high school: Most likely to wear platform shoes

Something smells awfully fishy 'round here

Our newest member of the Gallery of the Dead could quite possibly be the largest and hungriest. He normally prowls the ocean waters, but somehow he's learned to swim through grass. Come gaze upon the awesome spectre that is...Jaws! But be sure you don't spill a drop of blood anywhere near our display; sharks can smell that stuff a mile away. Betcha' didn't know these facts about our famous great white:
  • Secret shame: Received electro shark therapy treatment 
  • Favorite pigout food: Quarter flounder with cheese 
  • Little known fact: He’s so old in the tooth that he now wears dentures 
  • Sick of hearing his wife say: Chew with your mouth closed

Spirits on Sproat 2013 video now ready for prime time

Death metal has a face

Some people vow to rock and roll until it kills them. And that's exactly what happened to Iggy Vicious, quite possibly the boniest buddy among our Gallery of the Dead. Here are some little known facts on this macabre musician:
  • Known for: Playing music so loud and shrill that it can make the skin melt right off your bones
  • Favorite band: The Grateful Dead
  • Little-known fact: His dog once pulled off his leg and buried it in the backyard
  • Famous for: Recently warning Keith Richards to stop copying his image

One bride you wouldn't want to honeymoon with

They say behind every good man is a good woman. But what if that man isn't so good? Then his mate must surely be evil incarnate, as is the case with the Bride of Dracula. She's a fetching lass in her black coffin. Come see her in all her glory at Spirits on Sproat, but bring a wooden stake just in case. Here's the 411 on the missus...
  • Sick of hearing her husband say: Not tonight, dear, I’ve got a toothache
  • Secret wish: To be the celebrity pitchman for
  • Idolizes: Cher (circa 1987), Snooky, Michelle Bachman
