A series of 3 DVDs of Halloween characters that
turn any size TV into a Monster Machine!
Taunt and Haunt Party-goers!
"WOW! How did you do that?"
The DVD also provides a third section showcasing different ways the characters can be used. Everything from setting your TV in the window to using reflective surfaces that make the faces
look truly suspended in nothingness.
The DVD saves time and money for those interested in creating atmosphere for trick-or-treaters
and/or hosting their own homemade haunted house or costume party. Parents who want to add
a Halloween ambience to their house but don't have time to collect loads of props can
steal the show with this.
Packed with Predators!
There are many different creatures in "Big Scream TV!" Each appear one after another in the middle of
the TV screen addressing the viewer. Some are scary. Some are funny. Some are interesting to watch or
just plain entertaining. They taunt, yell, tell jokes, etc.
This simple and inexpensive product will give the best darn "animated effects" possible for home use. With everyone scrambling to buy animatronics, wacky lighting, etc. (and turn their homes into mini amusement parks or "Disney Lands") this product leads the bunch. Like software for your computer,
it's basically "Scareware" for your TV. Rather than just cardboard, glowing lights, or shaking plastic,
this delivers light, color, sound, image, visual effects, best bang-for-the-buck and the highest quality gags you can get for the home. The images could easily be used in a commercial haunted house.
Easy to Use.
Simply play on TV set. Relocate the TV near windows for Trick-or-treaters to enjoy or keep the TV where
it is for parties. As a bonus feature on the DVD, a "How-To" section shows consumers how they can take
a few extra steps and spend a few extra dollars to turn their TV into a Home Amazement Machine.
Tame Version: Less Frightening. Intendended for younger or more sensitive Party-goers and Trick-or-Treaters.
Un-Tame Version: All Hell Breaks Loose!

Q: What is Big Scream TV?
A: BIG SCREAM TV presents a looping series of digitally shot monster heads that croak
one-liners and pose funny questions.
Q: How many different BigScreamTVs are there?
and Magical Crystal Ball.
Q: What is included on every DVD?
A: Each Volume has a tame section, an untame section

These are selectable from the DVD menu.
Q: What must I have in order to use BigScreamTV (BSTV)?
A: You need a Television and a DVD player.
Q: Where can I get materials to use with BSTV?
A: If you do the extra-fun set-ups, you’ll want to get props from local Halloween
vendors or craft stores. Material (especially the semi transparent black cloth) can be
purchased at fabric stores. Clear plastic sheets are available at home-centers,
lumberyards, hardware stores, and glass shops.
Q: What kind of tricks and illusions can I do with BSTV?
A: You can make monster heads float in the air, crystal balls with eerie images,
moving pictures in portraits, tables with talking centerpieces, fireplaces with
moving images, and whatever else your imagination dreams up!
Q: How should I set up my TV to play BSTV?
A: Make sure the image is bright but that the dark part around the image is totally black.
To do this: Set your TV’s contrast HIGH (sometimes called “picture” or “black level”)
and your TV’s brightness so that it is very LOW. This makes darks dark, and lights
Q: What is a diorama?
A: A diorama is a scenic representation in which figures and/or props and/or paintings
or any types of details are included to generate a
static scene. A diorama can be any size. You’ve seen them life-size in Wax Museums and
miniature in typical model set-ups. For Halloween (and especially Christmas), most
every store has a window display with a diorama.
Q: What kind of props do I need?
A: That depends on the illusion and scene you want to set-up. For the Crystal ball,
you will need any kind of ball or round object. For other images, your dioramas can have
all sorts of props, lights, and scenes. It’s up to you to create some Halloween Magic.
See the many pictures at this site for ideas.
Q: Do I really need a crystal ball?
A: No. You can use any round object: a toy ball or even a balloon will work.
Q: What is Ghoulish Gauze?
A: An accessory that can be purchased. It is semi-transparent black cloth that hides
the TV yet allows the image to be seen.
Q: How Long will the program play?
A: The DVDs are programmed to loop indefinitely so your display can go on
uninterrupted all night. The original material loops every 12-20 minutes depending on
Q: What do I have to do when I get it? Do I need to buy other stuff?
A: You do not have to purchase anything extra. You can just “Plug & Play” (play DVD
on player into TV set.) Or, you can “Get carried Away!” For the latter you might want
to purchase accessories or props. You may have some of this stuff already at home
or in your Halloween collection.
Q: What’s often overlooked when using BSTV?
A: BSTV is an audio-visual experience! Make sure your viewers can hear it if your
display is inside but the viewers are outside. Turn up the volume on theTV and open
the window a little. Better yet: If you have a stereo hook-up for your TV, place a speaker
outside the house!
