Halloween Horror Nights 2014 Announcement

August 28, 2014
Halloween - House 8
We now have our full line up of houses with the announcement of Halloween joining HHN 24. Based off the original movie, Michael Myers' twisted world comes to life - whether you like it or not. 

Here's a clip of the movie in Universal's announcement.


August 12, 2014
Dollhouse of the Damned - House 5
Giggles & Gore Inc. - House 6
Roanoke: Cannibal Colony - House 7
MASKerade; Unstitched - Scarezone 1
Bayou of Blood - Scarezone 2

Universal has released 3 new original houses and 2 scarezones for this year's event.

Dollhouse of the Damned is themed to a morgue that a little girl has taken over and decorated as her playhouse...but not just any playhouse, a sick, twisted and demented version. We'll be encountering several creepy dolls, and people who are becoming dolls themselves.

Giggles & Gore Inc. is the factory where clowns are made...evil clowns...and they're made out of missing people. Guts, gore and terrifying clowns will be around every corner of this frightening house.

Roanoke: Cannibal Colony is loosely based on real events from colonial times back in 1587. A ship expected to be bringing supplies to the colony arrived but was empty...except for a few cannibals who've taken over the ship. A "chaotic gauntlet of flesh-hungry man-eaters" awaits us. 

MASKerade; Unstitched's theme is people who are trapped in an old-world time period. Their skin is falling from their bodies, at least the pieces that they haven't stitched back on. Creepy waltz music will fill the air while they dance among you.

Bayou of Blood revolves around a high-priestess, voodoo and human sacrifices. There will be a "sacrifice right in front of you" which reminds us (and we're hoping) of the old scarezones when they put on a small show. 

You can read more details as well as interviews with HHN designers at Universal's Blog.

From Dusk Til Dawn - House 2
The second house of the season has been announced - From Dusk Til Dawn. 
"Beneath the neon lit facade of this remote biker bar you'll discover a labyrinth of death, as an ancient race of blood thirsty creatures serve up chaos and carnage."

The Walking Dead - House 1

Late last night, details were released to USAToday.com about the theme of this year's event. The Walking Dead will be returning for a 3rd year to Halloween Horror Nights 24 in Orlando and in Hollywood. You can read the full details in the USAToday.com article here.

We are not excited in the least about this news. Seriously?? A third year? I know we aren't the only people disappointed to hear this. Last year's event seemed tired and now they're going for another. All that says to us is that the team is tapped of new ideas for the event. As Frequent Fear Pass holders since 2004, this is the first year we likely won't be. 

So, what are your thoughts on this news?
