To get his home festive for Halloween, Carl Fuqua decided to give projection mapping a try. Inspired by the technological technique popular at Disney World, Fuqua has set up a ghostly display at his home in Southwood to project a show every night through Oct. 30.

The display features videos designed with Stranger Things, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion.

The six-minute show stuns as ghoulish images are projected on the 50-foot front exterior of Fuqua’s house.

Though Fuqua is best known for displaying 8,000 lights at his home for the Christmas holiday – which has earned him a listing on the Democrat’s annual Tour of Lights guide – neighbors are now equally attracted to the fun projection show.

Motorists drive by to get a quick peek, while others parked across the street to sit and watch.

“When he does the lights for Christmas there is a line down the street to see them, but this is super cool too, so we come out to see it when it’s on,” Elizabeth Sellard said. The friendly neighbor rode out in a golf cart with her husband and young children to catch a glimpse of the show at Fuqua’s residence, 3246 Endicott Drive.
