A grisly dungeon can be a delightfully terrifying setting for a Halloween party. But ancient prisons are hard to come by in this day and age. With a bit of imagination, however, you can turn your ordinary garage into a nightmarish dungeon room. Transforming a garage into a dungeon requires advance planning and a bit of creativity, but with the right supplies the project can be completed in a couple of hours.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Tape black streamers along the walls in a crisscrossing pattern to create the illusion of stone walls.

  2. 2

    Build prisoner chains from rings of black construction paper. Tape the chains to the walls and hang plastic skeletons from them.

  3. 3

    Turn a low table into a torture rack by laying a skeleton across it and tying it down with construction paper restraints.

  4. 4

    Drape cobwebs in the corners of the garage and atop the skeletons.

  5. 5

    Dress a couple of the skeletons in dirty, ripped scraps of clothing.

  6. 6

    Create a "questioning" area with a red-spattered chair and a table full of menacing-looking tools.

  7. 7

    Light the room with pillar candles, placing them in strategic areas to highlight the skeletons and other creepy objects. If you have safety concerns about open flames, use artificial battery-powered candles.

  8. 8

    Use a fog machine to pump out a swirling mist of fog just before guests arrive. It will cling to the ground and lend a creepy feeling to the area. Turn it on every 30 minutes to refresh the fog and keep the garage floor murky.

  9. 9

    Play a repeating sound clip of moaning or weeping on a hidden CD or MP3 player.
