Halloween makes people go all out for decorating as is, but now that we've been in a pandemic and there's nothing better to do, people are going a little over the top.

An artist in East Dallas, Steven Novak, found his awesome decorations were a little too realistic looking for passerby when it had the police showing up regularly at his front door.

“I’ve always been up to hijinks like flying ghosts or 7-foot tall snow sculptures of myself, so if I was gonna do Halloween, it was obvious that it should be hyperreal," Novak told the Dallas Observer. "No lights, fog machine, or camp … something that would really freak people out walking by in the dark. So I whipped up some dummies and slung 20 gallons of blood all over.”

His yard features multiple dummies that died in various ways;

  • Machete to the back of the head
  • Safe dropped on head
  • Chainsaw stuck in the back
  • Body in a garbage bag

“I’m most proud of the wheelbarrow tipped over by the street full of Hefty bags, looking like a failed attempt to dispose of the dismembered bodies in the middle of the night.” Novak says. “A kid walked by and asked me what happened to them; I said they ate too many Skittles.”
