  4. Lol. I have a box of glasses and a box of maps just from the past few years. Stinks that we don't have unique glasses anymore. I love the clown o vision ones.
  5. Trust me. You aren't the only one who isn't pleased. It's a huge anniversary year but doesn't feel at all like an anniversary year. Big deal, we are getting some awesome IPs (TWD is debatable for most), but that's not what I want to see from an anniversary year. Every year it seems like A&D has so much planned for original and truly creative content, but they get cut down instantly. As a kid, I always dreamed of one day being able to work on Horror Nights. At the time, I didn't know about "corporate powers" or "big business" influences. The admiration that I had for the event in my early years was built on original and creative concepts. Somewhere along the line, the event started a transition into a totally new creature. I wish I could say things are like they have always been, but that's not the case. It's evident that the event has grown in popularity exponentially in the past 5 or so years and Universal has taken advantage of this by bringing big name IPs to the event. It's a very smart business move. You can't deny that. However, it's a real shame that A&D hasn't been able to continue some of the most important things that made the event successful in the first place. It's the 25th anniversary. I know we were all hoping on getting mainly original content and have that old Horror Nights feel, but sadly we haven't really gotten that in its true glory. I'm sure that they will do the originals justice, but there is only so much that can be done when money is the main focus. I understand that things can't and won't be the way they used to be. Logistically, it would be hard with the huge masses of guests and other concerns. The past few years, a part of me has died. The part of me that is like a kid on Christmas waiting to open up all my presents (waiting to see what houses, zones, and shows will be revealed). I remember when there used to be so much hype and anticipation building each year. Now it's just deflated by leaks and craziness. Of course I'm still going to attend the event each year. How could I stop? I've been going for so long that if I did miss a year, I would hate myself later on for not going. I do still genuinely enjoy the event. Not as it was or what I want it to be, but as it is. I'm going to get off of my soapbox now
  6. It would be cool to have more information on the website about original houses. Maybe something interactive and interesting that can grab guests eyes.
  7. I think that we will have queue videos in some form next year. For those of you who didn't get a chance to attend last year's event during the last few weeks, there were queue videos being played on the side of the parade building. Hellgate, Vampyr, Blood N' Gutz, and the lantern where some of the things that could be seen in the videos. The most logical reasoning behind why they would added those videos at the end of the event is simply to combat the crowds and give people something to watch while waiting in long lines. However, why would they choose these houses, characters, and concepts? They could have easily displayed IPs from last year (TWD, Halloween, Etc.), but they choose their own original concepts. Maybe because it was easier and cheaper for them to throw together, but I think they choose these videos for a reason.
  8. I wouldn't count on that. IPs will get first grabs on soundstages. Asylum would be in parade or a tent most likely.
  9. Take of this what you wish... Could be HHN related or something completely different. *The audition is on my birthday http://i.imgur.com/lSAk99R.jpg
  10. I thoroughly enjoyed P&T. It wasn't supper scary but it was a lot of fun. It was MUCH easier to follow than both In-Between and Afterlife. I really loved how they utilized all the different GATs and other interactive elements. Not to mention, Penn and Teller's involvement in the creation of the house. As much as people hate on 2012, I will still stick up for P&T and the other houses.
  11. Most nights they did use the tobacco smell in that scene. I did notice that one or two times I went through the house it did seem a bit faint.
  12. Here's the thing. You can't judge an IP solely off of a trailer. Dracula Untold is proof that A&D can make a house out if IPs that don't seem to have a whole lot to them. I see a small glimmer of potential in Crimson Peak and I defintely think that they could make an enjoyable house out of it.
  13. You think that the house was bad? Last year's "attempt" at synergy actually went well. It wasn't the strongest house, but it definitly hung in there.
