About Us

Adam Johnston is a two time Emmy Award Winning Sound Designer for FILM and TELEVISION. With 30 years of experience, he is the creative and technical expert behind Poison Halloween Props. Johnston has been creating and building Halloween Haunted House Attractions for over 22 years constantly striving to find new and ingenious ways to terrorize patrons!!

Johnston prides himself on DETAILED SOUND. His props all come to life with high powered speakers and high quality Digital Sound Players. Whenever possible all speakers are mounted in the chest of the prop so the sound travels with the prop creating a very realistic effect. It makes a big difference and brings the prop to life.

Poison Props also likes to keep set up for our customers as simple as possible. That's why we always have all electronics and valves mounted on one control board with everything labeled for easy install. We even include an air regulator preset so its completely plug and play. All airlines, speakers, lights and fog machines are labeled as well for super easy set up.  

Another important aspect is the quality of parts that go into each and every prop. All props are built to last. How we achieve that is by using heavy gauge steel, grade 8 bolts, bushings, bearings and speed controls. Keeping the props operating at a fast and violent pace is tricky and we have figured out ways to have the props moving fast but not bang too hard. It's a delicate balance that is key in order to keep the props running for years with minimum maintenance. Bottom line... Happy Customers for years to come.

POISON PROPS delivers! We have never missed an order date since 2007 and plan to keep it that way. When a haunt is in a pinch they always call us. Here at Poison Props we go out of our way to build quality props that will last for years. We also make sure to offer the lowest prices possible to everyone. Our prices are always wholesale to the public.

Testimonials:

Adam is the only prop builder I use for my Haunted House. His props are far superior to the ones I purchased before I met him. I expand my collection every year and get nothing but compliments and how professional everything is.

When ever I had a question it was usually answered within 30 minutes or less and by the owner. Where can you get customer service like this in today's market 'Poison Props'
Thanks another satisfied customer.

I combine Adam's tracks with his sound effects tracks, change them up, and loop them. Compliments went through the roof last season about how realistic everything sounded. Go with PoisonProps. The price pays for itself in quality.

Adam,

 My "tech" guy (read that as guy who sets up props) said today "Can we just get poison props from now on...they are so simple to hook up".

 KEEP DOING THAT...the power strips on the board etc.  I am sure that is noticed when crunch time comes.

Dude!  We received the props, and I am very happy!!!  They look and sound great.  I can't thank you enough for the rush order. Everything came out just great. Can't wait for the haunted house...People are going to freak out when they see your stuff!  -Jeff

Hey Adam,

Shane and Vinny keep asking why I don’t spend much time on your animatronics and I just tell them that your props have the “Ron Popeil” seal of approval……Set It and Forget It ! All the other manufacturers stuff you have to constantly watch for bad welds, or springs breaking, or who knows what. I really look forward to your new material for the next season.

Best Regards, David Merchant

   I would like to take the time to acknowledge Poison Props, Adam, and his Crew. I am a Committed, Dedicated, Halloween Decorator on a Larger scale. I have dealt with several "high end" Pneumatic prop dealers over the years, but have Never had the Pleasurable outcome as dealing with Poison Props.. Besides the Incredible "Scare Factor" of their Props, the Customer Service is Second to None! I've never dealt with such Caring, Passionate, and Professional Individual as Adam, A TRUE Class Act! Thank You, Adam and Your Team for making my Halloween Attraction the Best it can be! Happy Halloween! Sincerely, Bob Mele

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that you do, in fact, RULE.  Your "Flying Vampire with Wings" and "Mummy Coffin Blaster" were just plain awesome in our haunt.  Thank you for what you do. Dr. Jim Phifer

 Hi Adam, just wanted to let you know Chain Drop Grabber was a big hit, but the Burning Witch was fantastic! Both worked great had no problems. Keep up the good work.
