HHN XXI Speculation

Recommended Posts

Shockinfunk    0

Don't expect any info to trickle out once the auditions start. The only hint we may get is if they ask if people are willing to shave their heads again. Last year, they flat out told all the auditioners, "We can't tell you anything. Sorry." They didn't even tell us details at orientation, other than some of the character names were coded ("Con Artist" was a clever one, I'll admit). You can look at the character names from last year, and they're all very vague or slightly misleading (except for Hades). I can tell you most of the "Doctors" in the Catacombs didn't realize we were "Plague Doctors" (and what that meant) until our rehearsal.

A&D really clamped down last year, and with the disappearance of Emeric, I'm inclined to believe that they are clamping down even more this year (considering he was our only source outside of people flat out breaking the rules and taking pictures back-stage). Essentially, all we'll be able to do is speculate on the "Rune Room" and "Roll the dice," knowing full well that they may not mean anything at all.

Hollywood already has the house code-names, straight from the designer. HoS has their big hint drop. I feel like Oliver Twist.

figures as much :P. I don't mind being surprised since the costumes are always kickass imo. I'm sure most of those people who got Doctor and then saw the plague doctor costumes went crazy. I know when i was assigned as army i was thinking of something completely different and then i saw that i was gunna look like a molten spartan i was pretty damn excited by then.

We were excited about the costumes when we first saw them, but it didn't sink in until we after we rehearsed with them that we realized just how amazing they were. What people don't realize is that it's the Body Collector coat with a black T-Shirt and different mask, plus hat and gloves. I still had the old BC buttons on my costume during opening night.

Cleaned up the topic due to all of the off-topic posts pertaining personal stories of lighting, multiple paths, drunks, etc. Let's please stay on topic and stick to speculation. :)

Knew everyone would see this if I posted here. Does not look like HHN 2011 will include me as a scareactor. Being out of work for the past 18 months has really sucked and I was offered a position today in Albany Ga. It is a Temp position but will run thru at least August, so that takes away auditions for me. BUT will be fun to come out and hang out with everyone on the nights I am in town!

Been fun working for you guys the past 6 years.

Isn't just the room breakdown from The Hallow house in 08?

Yeah. Either he's hilariously misinformed and bad at reading or he's another of those people who posts fake info to troll (God knows YouTube has enough).

While I've gone to a bunch of HHN's, I pretty much forget about the specifics of the event by the next year and don't have a vast knowledge of room names and stuff so I appologize for posting bad info. I had that blog bookmarked from last year as they DID have really good construction photos :)

Guys, I really don't think the Storyteller will return, I was only kidding. I don't think we'll see those icons again, and if we do, it will be a long, long time away. I'm ready for a new role.

I may be beating a dead horse here, but looking back at the posts of spec, I have seen one of the hints that Emeric has posted. Can't remember the exact words, but it was something along the lines of "...he (Fear) has only showed his visible soul once, but now he plans to stick around for all of the frights." and "Fear has many faces". Does this mean that the next icon could be a next face of fear? Maybe...oh....DEATH?

I'd say it's more of a reference to how Fear can be seen in a variety of ways: real fear (like murder and death), paranormal, extraterrestrial, etc. and how we can see Fear in every house at least in spirit.

With Film District movies being a hit lately (Insidious and the up coming http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFE4lGvRt8E... talk about nightmare fuel) anyone think Universal will use the popularity to create similar themes?

I mean we really haven't seen a "demon possession" type house (aside from the use of the exorcist a few years.... Museum of Horrors: Unnatural History et al) and I would love to see (albeit hard to pull off) a house about miniscule demons (Cat's Eye and The Gate terrorized me as a kid).

I dont think he is returning. His dates on his calander do not match up with HHN. Example, his first date in September that says "Amusement Park" is for September 29 and 30. According to the Uni park hours for September, HHN starts on the 24. Also, he is not booked for "Amusement Park" on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays. HHN tends to occur on Wednesday nights toward the middle to end of October.

Brian is a really cool guy, he is funny, but, I never saw his show more than twice I really hope Uni Either Brings a new show, (How about giving another freakshow a chance? why is Uni married to Brian???)

or bring Rocky back, a lot of you said that bringing Rocky is a bad idea, but I still say, I would like to see a new show, If brian comes next year I dont think I will bother with it, sorry

Couldn't agree more. His show was repetitive every year...even last year the two Malice and whatever shows were derivative of the past few years. That wouldn't be a bad thing if the show was really good. I found chatting with Brian after the show to be 100x more enjoyable than the show itself.

I love the RHPS and want them to bring it back. It was so much fun and I think really fit in with the event. I know, it never changes either...but it's so great that 36 years later, it's still awesome every time. The WORST idea they could have would be to do a Shock Treatment tribute :lol:

Just an update: Permits haven't moved forward since the 17th but have had several friends state they have seen construction activity occuring in and around the tents... which makes sense they are going to be first.
