HALLOWEEN DISPLAY Janice Blackie-Goodine shows a portion of her Trout Creek yard, decorated for Halloween. Each year, Blackie-Goodine sets out an elaborate display, including skeletons, witches, tombstones and other items. Much of the display came from motion picture props.

Summerland Halloween display features movie props and body parts

The Halloween display at Janice Blackie-Goodine’s home in Trout Creek is elaborate and spooky.

Blackie-Goodine, a motion picture set designer, has plenty of movie props she uses in her annual display.

These include tombstones, signs and even a few body parts which were used in the 2008 war movie Passchendaele.

“They’re a little bit creepy, but I didn’t want them to go to waste after someone had put so much time in to making them,” she said.

The display takes around a week and a half to assemble, and Blackie-Goodine changes it from year to year.

The effect of the large-scale display can be intimidating, she added.

“Some people are a little bit timid about coming in at night,” she said. “Some of the kids are a little bit nervous.”
