  1. I speculate that with the official announcment of the inclusion of TWD at this years event, people will start to complain. Wait, that's not a speculation, it happened with the initial announcement of CITW and Evil Dead. (And I admit initially I wasn't thrilled with those choices, but sometimes campy can wind up being fun and scary....we shall see.) Very interested to see what is in store this year regardless....
  2. Personally, I'm a sucker for true atmospheric houses like Screamhouse, Scary Tales, Body Collectors, Dead Exposure, The Hallow, Nightingales, Winters Night, Gothic. Here's hoping we get something along these lines this year....
  3. Having attended all 22 years of this event, last year was the first year that I was truly disappointed. The crowds were horrendous, the drunks were out in full force and just something seemed to be missing...it was missing that old HHN vibe that I remember from previous years. Many factors are in play as to our attendance this year, I always have hope that the event will return to what it once was, a celebration of Halloween. That the focus will be put back on the ambiance and overall atmosphere of the event and not so much as to how many beer carts or shot girls can be placed in a queue line. Each year I try to have an open mind when we start to get tidbits of what to expect, this year is no different. Everyone has their own opinion about the event, good, bad or indifferent. I'm hoping that perhaps this year can sway my mindset back to the days of when I loved it and couldn't wait to step out into the fog and see what was waiting for me. Here's hoping....

    The movie was a waste of two hours of my life. Given the crowds over the past several years, the house itself could wind up being a waste of upwards of the same if not more depending on wait times. And I've never been a huge fan of having a wealth of gore inside any house, there's nothing scary about gore, at least to me. So if they plan on gutting this one out so to speak, I'd be curious to see in what way and how it's presented. And a side note, movie reboots/remakes (this one included) should be banned in the film industry. Period.

    Happy birthday!!! Hope you have a good day! :)

  6. Personally, I don't even care about having an icon with this major outlandish backstory that is tied into all elements of the event. I also don't care about having an all original event either. I'm just not a fan of taking another celebrity (like AC or P&T) and creating a house around them. For me, neither of those houses had any type of Halloween feel to them at all. I'm sure if you are a fan of either of them, it was a much different experience. Those houses really had no type of concept to follow, there seemed to be no Halloween element to either of them. I want to be in a house like Gothic or Silent Hill where you feel immersed in a storyline, something that has that atmospheric prescence of Halloween. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to the holiday, give me, ghosts, goblins, witches, pumpkins, and things that go bump in the night. Hell even using IPs like Jason, Freddy, etc. at least those concepts ooze Halloween. Be it an IP or original concept, I'm for either one as long as it remotely resembles some type of Halloween oriented house. As I said before, this will be my 23rd year....it's going to take a hell of a lot to impress me this time around. And if they continue to use the same formula for houses in the coming years, personally, that'll be a huge let down for me.
  7. Personally, I don't think any musicians music translates well into a house. Unless you are a fan of the individual the house is based around, you'll be clueless to the images and concepts being presented. At least that's how I see it. For me Halloween has nothing to do with musicians and everything to do with an ambiance of sorts. I can never quite put my finger on that exact tone or atmospheric quality that for me encompasses Halloween, but the event has inched a little closer every year toward hitting it....but then they do something like an AC or P&T house and I'm like "Really Universal?". This coming year, I'm not sure what to expect. It'll be my 23rd year and honestly, I'm at the point I don't really know what they can pull off that will surprise or scare me. Every year I'm hoping to regain that love I used to have for the event, here's hoping 2013 revives that feeling.
  8. Never been a fan of Marilyn Manson at all. I think simply because he did try to be so shocking, so avante guard and non-mainstream, that's been done in every generation. And for me he's scary in a "yeap, he needs to have his meds checked" kinda scary, not a Halloween kind of scary. But again, that's what is great about the event, if a house like this would come to fruition, there would be plenty of folks who would love it!
  9. Yes, because two separate lines along with the express pass line won't make it anymore confusing to all the drunk people or slow the lines down even moreso....genius!
  10. Unless a great deal changes, personally, I think seeing everyone bust out into the Harlem shake would be the only reason to attend a B&T show next year
  11. Not sure I can see anymore Doctor Who being integrated into HHN without it sucking even more of the "Halloweenieness" out of the event....even if there are vampires involved. I've seen vampires in various forms utilized enough at this event that if they never show up again that wouldn't be a bad thing in my book. It'd be great to see some type of urban legend house/folklore kind of house. Again, all just my random opinions and none of which mean much of anything to anyone but me....
  12. Eileen...(((HUGS))) You are exactly right, WAY more walkers outside TWD house than inside. I was just very underwhelmed by that house in general, considering it was one of the most hyped of the entire event, I expected so much more. I have my own personal reasons for disliking the Alice Cooper house, but that's another topic altogether....LOL This year reminded me exactly how much I love original houses and overdone IP houses are....nothing beats walking into a house and having little to no idea what the hell is going to happen, THAT is what Halloween is all about, those unexpected scares and surprises. Maybe that's why I didn't really enjoy TWD house that much because it was too predictable. I've been saying it for years, but for me, a traditional Halloween is the way to go. I got my jack-o-laterns a few years back and with the Skoolhouse, that amped things up a bit, but there is still so much more they could do.
  13. Exactly Ryan! I just want an event that has a Halloween feel to it, not one that is a social overload of the current movies or trends. Make it scary, make it beautiful, make it fun...and if you wanna add a jack-o-latern or two here and there, that's fine by me.
