HHN Hollywood 2017 Codename Cheat Sheet


Recommended Posts

Gonna use this as our Codename Sheet and we can use it to solve some of the Mazes.

 

Other Hints:

- "This is a pic my family took on the tour in the early 1970's by the Red Sea...notice the severed arm in the Gorilla's hand. Hmmm?"

- No 3D Mazes this year

- The Inside of 747 will not be used this year

- No Bill and Ted

- No Literal Repeats (Like AVP)

- There will be Mazes coming this year that will be very surprising (As if we didn't see it coming)

- "Boo"

- No Original Mazes this year

- There will be both New and Old horror films at this year's event

- There will be a TV Themed Maze this year

- No new Maze Locations 

- There are two Mazes that Murdy is really excited for ("Charles" and "The Big Chill")

- This is at least the Second Best Lineup

- The First Maze Announcement is sooner than you think.

- There will be Multiple Scare Zones this year unlike 2016 Purge Gaunlet.

- Movies that Murdy are really excited for are "IT, Alien Covenant, and Insidious" (But why didn't he state any others like "Saw Legacy")

- Murdy has considered doing a "It" Maze

- All Original Scare Zones

- Murdy may have gotten a dream property that he wanted

 

Maze #1 (Confirmed to be "AHS")

Codename: "Lemonade"

- The First Maze was required to be designed first

- "It's very strange to be writing a maze treatment & hearing Christmas music constantly! Messes me up! Any guesses on what I'm writing?"

- It has to do with something a filmmaker said to John about his Property 

- Murdy did a redesign on the Maze and the Codename fits the property even more now

- The Codename has a B connection

- It is not a New film

- It's pretty obvious in what it points to but pretty obscure in the connection beyond that 

- "Its a reference to Beyonce but more in how the album dropped"

- "The last season was "dropped like Beyonce's Lemonade" without any advance PR on what it was going to be."

- Confirmed to be in the FDTD Area 

- Treatment is 119 Pages Long

 

Maze #2 (Confirmed to be "The Shining")

Codename: "Charles"

- Tricker than "The Exorcist"

- Has a Iconic Scene that is Instantly associated with the Property and took Murdy a while to figure out

- The Codename has to do with a Character

- "the other relates to property but is personal too"

- Murdy is excited about this Maze as he thought he never would do it

- "Everything Old is New Again"

- "Yes I named this maze after a friend of mine who shares a name...and other connections"

- "Shhh..."

- Treatment is 71 Pages Long 

 

Maze #3 (Confirmed to be "Insidious: Beyond The Further")

Codename: "Writer's Block"

- Murdy went through 20,000 Pictures for this Maze 

- Has to do with Writer's Block 

- The Letters "M" and "N" have to do with the Property 

- "It doesn't specifically have to do with writer's block...more the keyboard in the pic"

- Confirmed to be in JP Queue

- Treatment is 121 Pages Long

 

Maze #4 (No Longer Available)

Codename: "The Big Chill"

- Murdy stated that the place he was traveling to (Ireland, UK) would influence things for this Maze 

- Took Murdy two hours to get through 12 minutes of Viewing

- "Back at it tomorrow...more extremely slow horror video watching awaits. Probably won't get into actually designing this maze till midweek"

- Murdy is excited to bring it to HHN 

- Is Scarier than "The Exorcist"

- Had a minor tweak recently.

- Murdy gets shivers after watching this movie 

- The hint is in a song from the Soundtrack "The Big Chill" 

- Will be shared with Orlando

Maze #4 Replacement (Confirmed to be "Titans of Terror")

Codename: Uber Fan

- Will be a Replacement to the Maze to be known with the codename "The Big Chill".

- Will be Located in the Waterworld Queue

- Will have a twist on the Facade on the property and horror fandom in general

- "The name has to do with the concept we came up with for the facade"

- Treatment is 88 Pages Long

 

Maze #5 (Confirmed to be "Ash vs Evil Dead")

Codename: "Ashes to Ashes"

- Treatment is 72 Pages Long

 

Maze #7 (Confirmed to be "The Horrors Of Blumhouse")

Codename: "Science Project" (Unofficial)

- Murdy called this "a bit of a Science Project"

As for Codename connections:

 

Lemonade = AHS

The last season of AHS aka Roanoke was dropped like Beyonce's Lemonade which was unexpected on what it was gonna be

 

Charles = Shining

It's a reference to the previous Caretaker who murdered his family in the film named CHARLES/Delbert Grady 

 

Will also do it on Writers Block and Uber Fan.

JP maze brick design looks a lot like the house from GET OUT, although the structure is not the same. Just assuming and speculating 

writers block = GET OUT (GET OUT of writers black) 

the M and the N can relate to M Night Shaysmalan... as Get Out was influenced by M Night’s films/work... this is just a stretch
