If you think of a fog machine as a thing you only see when you go to a professional haunted house, think again. You add one to your party or front yard for some appropriate Halloween atmosphere, and it’s a lot cheaper than you might think.

Here’s one of many ways you can use one to creep out potential trick-or-treaters: Amazon’s deal on the Chauvet Hurricane 700 fog machine is a reasonably priced way to up your Halloween game. It’s on sale for $33.99 (regularly $36.99), ships for free, and comes with a free pint of fog fluid to get you started.

This party machine is a compact little 450-watt unit, which will fog your front yard just fine. An entire ballroom might need something more powerful, but you probably wouldn’t be looking for a cheap fog machine if you were throwing a party that big.
