Fans of horror movies know how important the atmosphere is when watching a scary movie. Watching a horror movie on a cell phone screen while you ride a city bus is a major difference than a darkened movie theater. If you have a dedicated home theater, learn about upgrades and features that will improve the horror movie experience.

Each element improves the experience, and all the upgrades blend together to create the ultimate horror movie home theater experience.

Blackout Curtains and Blinds

Watching a horror movie at night is naturally scarier. The darkness brings a lot of unknown and will draw all of the focus directly to the movie screen. Keep your home theater dark for every horror movie screening with blackout curtains and blinds. Typically, you would choose one of the two options to block out light.

For smaller windows, a small set of curtains will easily cover the glass. Blackout blinds provide full coverage over larger windows in a home theater. Ideally, you want to install automated blinds and connect them to smart house controls. When you want to watch a movie, you can press a button to have the blinds automatically shut and block out the light.

Wireless Surround Sound Speakers

Sound is an essential part of horror movies. From classic movie soundtracks like Jaws to tiny details and jump scares, proper sound can really enhance the way you enjoy horror movies. Wireless surround sound speakers will provide you with the sound original filmmakers intended.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    Todd and his staff were very professional and easy to work with during our recent project of updating our home entertainment system. I wouldn't think twice about referring A Tech Easy Living Store!!! Thanks

  • What Our Clients Say

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!
