DIY Inspiration: Giant Scary Ghost on a Pulley from pumkinrothalloween.
I wish pumpkinrothalloween would write a short how-to because this ghost is terrifying.
The Sliding Ghost, from Halloween 1987.
My brother was in the upstairs bedroom window reeling this massive thing up and then releasing it to glide down on a pulley towards kids and their parents walking on the sidewalk. Super quiet so it had many a terrified victim.
We did the pulley prop for a few years, each year something different: a witch on a broom, a giant bat, a Slimer-like green ghost, and this guy.
