  1. It sucks that this is shutting down. Why not just leave it open for those that still post here?

  2. They posted it in the HHN Orlando 32nd Speculation topic. I guess because that's one of the few topics that are still getting hits. Not a big fan of the forum's closures. Sure Discord has its merits, but the type of posts I've been making for the past... years has been best done in one long post. But, that's the nature of things. And besides, I see others in the Your Nightmares thread have been using off-site documents like Google Docs for their house ideas, so maybe I'm just behind on the times. Well, I guess we have nothing else to do but wait. If you see a Jeremy7 or such on Discord, that's me.

  3. If I was in charge of Next year's Horror Nights, The Thing would be my Wild Card

  4. Holy hair monkey balls! Chucky is coming back with his own house again! I’m starting to question if he’ll be an icon for next year, and there’s some potential.

  5. Body Collectors: Recollections, Dead Man's Pier and Carnival Graveyard are quite literally the best Soundstage houses I've walked through. Maybe even the best Soundstage houses ever. They were literally on a different scale and I would classify them as the "perfect HHN house". I don't think I've ever been as immersed in a haunted experience as I have with those three.

  6. This is what the Fast & Furious queue looks like after the event. Even though, Blumhouse isn’t my most favorite house of this year, but this location still has some creative potential they could pull off. Its first house mostly had smaller sets. I think the location is perfect for certain themes like in a Warehouse or an abandoned factory, which also worked for the Disaster/Earthquake queue before it was replaced by what we all love to hate.

  7. The Weeknd has been tied to horror for quite some time and he doesn't appear to be moving from that aesthetic for a while.

  9. I think they also did it to reduce the chances of leaks occurring. Or maybe they felt that many guests/fans thought it was obvious that Chucky was eventually gonna come back to the event. There have been talks of Comcast wanting to purchase Warner Bros. If Comcast acquires WB, then it'll be a game changer for HHN and really Universal itself. Could finally see IPs like IT, The Conjuring, Scooby-Doo (2002 film), Gremlins, NoES, The Lost Boys, Creepshow, Thirteen Ghosts, and even Beetlejuice.

  10. Seems like Universal is more aware of us speculating than before. One thing I’ll agree about the Chucky announcement at last minute during the event is our activity could be a tad less, but I do expect another string of IP announcements one at a time, starting with the Monsters of course cause that’s easy to know what’s next, and then a full dump on August with the originals, zones, and shows.

  11. Even though HNN is shutting down, I think this topic should continue to be discussed up until the day of the shutdown.

  12. I'm saying in terms of how it can be turned into a house. There are no jump scares in Escape Room.

  13. It kind of did this year lol. The Black Phone section of The Horrors of Blumhouse was super long and felt like a fully-fledged house. It took up 3 tents!

  15. I believe they will go after slashers more often from now on. Halloween was RIDICULOUSLY popular this year. Way more popular than The Weeknd and Blumhouse. Slasher icons are the biggest parts of the horror genre and it would be silly for Universal to not go after them more. F13, Elm Street, Hellraiser, and Scream are most likely off the table, but I believe F13 and Hellraiser may be obtainable soon. IPs like Silence of the Lambs, Terrifier, Leprechaun, Chucky, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Happy Death Day are obtainable and deserve MUCH more representation at the event.

  17. I guess they're just waiting for the perfect moment? I know that everything has to be approved by upper management, so maybe they keep shooting it down?

  18. Been wondering how they could pull off an Invisible Man house in case the next Universal Monster isn’t what I’m expecting the most. They could do it entirely in black lights to have him to do jump scares be guys in black clothes with only one pair of clothing on that is visible like a hat or shirt (Universal/HHN merchandise would make a perfect fourth wall break for this) and holding a knife to make it seem like it’s floating in a threatening matter with some Slasher elements as an update, but you know it’s the Invisible Man. You also got some camouflaged scares and pitch black areas with some things touching you in the dark, and course some scares with him fully clothed with the bandages. It’s sounds like a very experimental approach. This would also require black walls for the black light scares to work, so the actors could be behind them, which would be very hard to pull off without making the scares so obvious or making the sets small. You can’t really have a house that is entirely pitch black or have anyone touch in you dark for safety reasons. On paper, it sounds good as a camouflage house, but I don’t think it would really come off as the Invisible Man by execution cause it wouldn’t be easy to build all the sets for the scareactors to blend in with it other than making them with just walls patterned and painted or covered with black sheets and curtains. That’s why I considered the Invisible Man to be the toughest character to do for a house, even with some interesting ideas together, you have to build the sets uniquely different to fit in some of the scares.

  19. At this point, I’m looking at what could go either way. We can’t pick right now for an overall theme we want the most. If it’s an amp up take of 19, then I can take it. If it’s like what Alex is predicting, then I can take it. I’m just not buying the possibility of Scream coming to the event, so I’m pretty much going what Legacy implied.

  20. I find it really interesting that a lot of us on there have very similar picks when it comes to IPs. Does that mean we're on the right track? lol

  21. AlexanderMBush made a very interesting prediction on Inside Universal. With Chucky announced, his IP picks are The Exorcist, Scream, Dawn FM, and the Invisible Man. He thinks next year’s overall theme revolves around death. Dawn FM emphasized what lies after death, Chucky is a pitstop of death, Pazuzu refuses to stay dead and wants to remain alive in some form, Slasher movies like Scream are about avoiding death long as possible with a rush, and The Last of Us is about the Undead. You could even use either the Caretaker or Bone as an icon who are both related to death as an angle of the theme.

  22. Brian G. on the Inside Universal forums said that Last of Us was Descendants of Destruction miscommunication. I'm pretty sure that is incorrect.

  23. Universal tried to get Scream for this year, but the rightsholders are hard to negotiate with. I'm sure they're trying again for next year, but I doubt they'll gain access to the IP.

  24. Legacy had recently implied to not expect Scream. Don’t get me wrong, I want a house based on the movie as the other dude, but It’s so tough to get access and make it happen officially.
    2 points
  25. Yeah, I don't understand why they think Exorcist has no shot. It's an IP they have access to, the legacy sequel is from Blumhouse, and the new film releases next year. It's EASY synergy. Seems stupid to not capitalize on it.

  26. I could picture one scene of her in some medieval-like prison where she chillingly kills a dwarf with her wand by stabbing him, slowly turning into stone. Let’s not forget about her army from the books who could also be her guards in the castle such as the ghouls, goblins, evil dwarfs, trolls, hags, ogres, wolves, and many more. It’s something that got me wondering what she was doing between the first two books from the series. I do picture Jadis’ personality to be very ruthless.

  27. If next year IP’s and originals are all movies as a 19-esque year with the possible return of the Usher, then much of it could look like this. Phantom of the Opera The Exorcist Chucky Nightmare On Elm Street Saw Leave It To Cleaver 2 Sliver Screams 2 with scenes from the silent era horror films.

  28. I somehow could picture Bugs coming back as a scarezone. The insects probably left the pavilion and took over the streets. Very easy theory to think of, but it’s a simple continuation that makes sense very well.

  29. I had no idea Hollywood angered Netflix like that. It sucks that we may not see Fear Street come to the event for a while. Yeah, you made a good point of Orlando having them as exclusives would be a bad move from a business standpoint.

  30. Pretty sure Netflix was really upset with Hollywood after seeing how abysmal their Haunting of Hill House was. Hill House was the last straw from my understanding. Netflix was supposedly upset with Hollywood's version of Stranger Things in 2019. It's a mix of the asking price and the relationship between the companies becoming rocky. I believe Netflix is more inclined to work with Orlando, but that doesn't work out for Universal, unfortunately. With Netflix owning some of the biggest IPs ever, making them exclusive to Orlando doesn't make sense from a business standpoint.

  31. If they’re working on a new album and have plans for the next North American tour right now, then I wouldn’t be surprised if Metallica gets their own house. A handful of songs were even inspired by Lovecraft.

  34. I honestly don't think we will see an icon next year. It'll be more like 28 and 29, where there's a small theme trying to connect the event together. If Marketing were to allow it, A&D could easily come up with an original icon that is tied to the number 32. They did the same with the number 21 for Lady Luck. I'd love to see a Yeti sequel, but it felt like a one-and-done type of situation.

  35. If it’s ten houses again, then we’ll have to wait for the next announcement until May when Mardi Gras is over. But they should throw us some hints and clues other than Legacy for us to speculate on their social media pages and YouTube channel for just one to three times a month.

  36. When do you guys think the next house announcement will be? Is there a chance we could get one in January or February cause with the super early Chucky announcement, they're once again changing up things.

  37. Thank God Kidzone Pizza is safe! We probably wouldn’t have more Pizza Fries without it next year.

  38. Isn’t there a rumor floating around about Kidzone getting replaced by Pokémon? As far I know, ET is the only attraction at that area safe from being shut down, protected by Steven Spielberg.

  39. Universal Monsters: Legends Collide got House of the Year. Doesn't mean it's coming back but I thought I might share it

  40. Hmmmm. That’s a good question. If they were to tackle a lesser known IP, I think something like Chopping Mall, Pumpkinhead, or Re-Animator would be great to see.

  41. Here’s a fun question for you guys: If the house total is eleven, then what do you want to represent as an eleventh spot? For me, Orlando’s A&D team should expand their creative freedom for something that isn’t marketable whether if it’s an original concept or a lesser known IP cause I think they do great at balancing themselves with popular demands, fan services, and experimentations.

  43. Metaverse collaboration, merch rollouts at Hot Topic, HHN at Vegas rumor, and an out of a blue house announcement. All of those things are proof Comcast is officially aware of the event brand, how big it is, and what they can pull.

  44. Happy Halloween btw!! lmao Looking forward to speculating on next year's event with all of you!

  45. I think that’s the type of scheduling they could be doing with house announcements in the future. With the possibility of eleven or maybe twelve in total, you could make announcements related to HHN on each month until the event starts and later before it ends on Halloween night or early November. Not every month has to be a house; they could reveal the dates on November, and then general admission with a discount on December.

  46. My updated predictions as of now for HHN 32 Announced: Chucky IP predictions: The Exorcist, Phantom of the Opera, Slipknot or The Weeknd (Either one), and Nightmare on Elm Street (My wildcard) Originals: Run (The 2001 original of what it was supposed to be), Treaks & Foons, Some theme related to the word “Epic.”

  48. I actually wouldn’t mind a Hotel-themed house with ghosts and Boris Shuster doing some sort of investigation at New York City, and it’s kinda of something we need as Universal’s equivalent to Disney’s Tower of Terror. It just need to set during the Post-World War II era like in Cases Files Underneath at 30 while the hotel is abandoned and stuck in the 30’s.
