Remember the good old days when Halloween meant trick-or-treating and bobbing for apples? Well, technology has made All Hallow's Eve a whole lot scarier. From advanced video displays to motion-sensing devices, these Halloween-themed gadgets will turn your home into a truly terrifying house of horrors. Here's a list of some cool tech (some pricey, some not) that will help you make things go bump in the night this year.


1

Axe Killer Video Screen

 
 

If you REALLY want to scare trick-or-treaters, this effect may be your best bet. Affix this video panel to your front door to create the illusion that an actual axe-wielding murderer is trying to break through. It's a great way to finally get those annoying teens from next door to leave you alone.

Animatronic Chainsaw Skeleton

 
 

Making your own costume can be one of the best parts of Halloween. So why not build your own decorations too? This animatronic 'Chainsaw Massacre Skeleton' display is easy to construct and a great way to add an intense sense of fear and dread to your front lawn.

Vortex Tunnel

 
 

Got $8,000 lying around? Then you can make your home look like it leads to another dimension with the Vortex Tunnel display. This spooky, fully automated portal actually rotates so trick-or-treaters will feel like they're entering the 'Twilight Zone.' Additional effects can be made extra special (and extra queasy) with 3D glasses.

Creature Crate

 
 

What have you got trapped in that box? The Creature Crate violently shakes to life, alerting passersby to the horror of what might soon be breaking out.

Garden Zombie

 
 

This isn't exactly a gadget, but it's pretty cool, so who cares? SkyMall commissioned artist Alan Dickinson to create a lifelike (deadlike?) zombie for your garden, and he succeeded in scaring the Dickens out of everyone. For $100 plus shipping, you can be sure nobody will be snipping your lavender anytime soon.

Actual Hand Case for iPhone

 
 

Need someone to lend you a (pardon the pun) hand to hold your iPhone? These creepy cases have a replica hand stuck to the back that fits right into your own when holding your phone. It's adorably freakish.
