This spooky sight is set to delight and frighten trick or treaters in equal measure.

Trevor Southernwood, 55, kitted out the inside of his house and front garden to surprise passersby on Halloween.

He rigged up his home in Beatty Road, Great Yarmouth with strobe lighting linked to a sound system playing thunder sounds which automatically triggers the flashing devices creating an eerie setting.

He has also created a tunnel in the front garden adorned with skeletons hooked up to motion sensors that move as you walk past them.

Mr Southernwood, who lives with his 12-year-old daughter, began decorating his home at Christmas three years ago, and last year began doing the same for Halloween.

He said: 'I like to be different and to do something for the community. Seeing people's faces makes it all worth it.'

Such is the popularity of his house, he has prepared 400 bags of sweets for trick or treaters.

The self-employed decorator has to date spent nearly £2,500 on the effects, and hopes next year to go one step further by buying flame throwers for his front garden.

This year he also picked up a silver prize for his front garden at the Great Yarmouth In Blooms awards.
