The cold October winds are bringing the dark carnival to town. Join Jack, your ringmaster, as he brings together the most diabolical combination of sinister sideshows, a midway of carnage and the most maniacal movie madmen featuring FREDDY KRUEGER, JASON AND LEATHERFACE.
8 ALL NEW Terrifying Haunted Houses.
4 ALL NEW Incredible Shows.
Universal licensed official horror movie icons – Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Leatherface – from New Line Cinema. While this was the first time the named characters could be spotted at the event, all three of them were featured together (in likeness) in the original “All Nite Die-In” from “Halloween Horror Nights 13.”
The original title of “Psychoscareapy: Home for the Holidays” was “Silent Night, Psychotic Night.” Last minute name changes are not uncommon for the event, however, one of the T-shirts for this years event was printed with the “Silent Night, Psychotic Night” title on it.
This was the first year Halloween Horror Nights featured a stage show version of the Rocky Horror Picture show. This idea had been brought up several years in the past, but was never implemented until 2007.
