A Scary Guillotine

I'm not really sure what to say about this one. I don't have anything humorous to say. It's just a good Halloween scene to scare you when you see it at night. A guillotine with a couple of victims. I wondered where the heads might be, but I guess they're lying there in the bucket.

I look at the guillotine in the picture now and think of how long it must have taken to build it. There used to be a machine where I used to work that looked very similar. It even had an up and down moving part like that blade. So I know with a few small modifications that this prop guillotine could actually work. Interesting.

I'll talk to you later.

    1. This is Ponca State Park in Nebraska. I'll have to mention that in a future post.

    1. I was thinking that this scene looked incredibly French, but I just didn't know how to say it.

    1. I agree. I'm glad that blade isn't sharp.

  4. Cool prop...I'm not sure I like the idea so much that with just a couple of modifications it could really work though?!?!?!

    1. It sounds kind of scary, doesn't it? That's why I thought it was interesting.
