The Halloween world says goodbye to Professor Evil AKA Rik Cary


   I was deeply saddened to learn that Professor Evil (aka Rik Cary) of had passed away this last weekend. I have been a huge fan of Hauntproject and almost all of my creations have a design I gleaned from that sites multitude of DIY plans. His passing has left a huge void in the Home Haunter and Halloween community at large. My thoughts go out to his friends and family. He will be greatly missed!

   I hope that somebody is able to rise up and accept the mantle that was his to administer the site of Halloween excellence and continue his enormous legacy to us all. You can check out his personal work on his blog, Here is his 2011 creation:

Here are just a few of his creations from 2010. He had a real eye for lighting.

Farewell Professor Evil. May this be the beginning of many great journeys.


  1. I heard about this, was one of my favorite places to check out project ideas and all. They say they just found him at home on Sunday but no other details. His family and the Haunt community is going to miss him. Thanks for posting this wicKED.

  2. Oh wow, this is so sad. :( I loved browsing the website, I hope they will continue to keep it running in his honor! RIP...

  3. When I found out about Professor Evil's passing, and that Haunt Projects was no longer being maintained I quickly created a Facebook page dedicated to him, and copied all the live links. The page went inactive just a couple days after I finished. Here is a link to that page.
