My (insert witty comment here) review


Recommended Posts


  1. Poltergeist - 10/10
    This was the consensus #1 house for my group.  Just amazing from the facade, smell, puppets, etc.  Did I mention puppets?  Don't want to give anything away, but the demons are just...amazing.  Fun fact, the house is so cold as there's a special effects school in the sound stage and they have to keep it cool since the servers run so hot.
  2. Slaughter Sinema - 9.5/10
    ABSOLUTELY LOVED this house.  It's so much fun, but the scares are still there.  There's so much fun stuff to look at that that you are easily scared by the scaractors.  Queue video is a classic (possible hint to a return of Hive?) as is the last room.
  3. Carnival Graveyard - 9.4/10
    After the first night, this was my second favorite house...but by the end of event Slaughter Sinema had taken over the spot.  LOVE the layout.  One night, all the overhead "Stuff" wasn't working.  Including stuff like the noisemakers that smash above you (keeping this vague to be as spoiler free as possible) and the bungie scare.
  4. Scary Tales - 9/10
    Great house and facade.  Could easily have been my #1 house if it was last year.  Had one dull run through with a shift change or something, but an amazing house.  Wondering if they got rid of the rotten egg smell or if my sniffer just isn't that good.  I didn't smell it.
  5. Seeds of Extinction - 9/10
    LOVED this house...but it was just so dark.  Maybe too dark.  Seeing this with the lights on on the UTH tour was amazing and sad...you can't see 90% of the amazing level of detail in this house when you're walking through it.  
  6. Halloween 4 - 8.5/10
    I'm shocked this is so high, but it's a great house with great scares.  Had been a while since I saw the movie, but it all came back to me as I went through.  Some great gags and the sound cue's for when Michael pops out always get me.
  7. Dead Exposure - 8.5/10
    Great fun house...shockingly not as dark as Seeds of Extinction.  I remember getting lost in the original house but this one I had no problems with.  Wish it was more disorienting. 
  8. Stranger Things - 8/10
    It was a very good house that fans of the series will love, but it just seemed OK to me.  The characters are great and there are some awesome sets, just not that scary and the X-Mas light room being more of a disco strobe light than how it was in the show kinda put me off a bit.  Maybe I drank too much coolaid expecting this to be great.  WHICH IT WAS, but in such a strong year it's pretty far down my list.
  9. Trick R Treat - 7/10
    Visually stunning and faithful to the movie, just didn't have many good scares.  Maybe I hit this at bad times or something, but I was suprisingly underwhelmed by it.
  10. Blumhouse 2.0 - 5/10
    Didn't like this one much at.  Babyface killer did nothing for me, the deja vu was just annoying (I get it, that's how the movie is, but still didn't like it).  When we walked in the house there were crew members telling us to walk as closely to a wall as possible and avoid an area.  Figured someone puked there or something, but my friend said they did it earlier in the event as well.  So no clue what that was about.  It looked good and I got a good scare or two, so giving it a 5.


Scare Zones

  1. Killer Klowns From Outer Space - 9.5/10
    Would have been a 10/10 if it wasn't so damn small!  There was sooooo much room there and a ton of clowns.  Any time you stop to take a picture of something (or do a selfi, which isn't my thing) a clown would come up behind you to startle you...or photobomb your picture.  Biggest laugh of the whole night was a tour guide going through with a lit up batton thing and the clowns with props (hammers, bats, guns) all joining the tour and walking through with their props up in the air like the tour guide.  MAKE THIS A HOUSE NEXT YEAR!!!!!
  2. Vamp '85 - 8.5/10
    The soundtrack gets a 10/10.  A fun zone but not that scary.  The show was a nice touch but was a bit disappointed that the ball doesn't drop....something else happens but don't want to spoil it.
  3. Revenge of Chucky - 8/10
    This was suprisingly a ton of fun.  First time through was a bit disappointing, but mostly because we were expecting more Chucky.  But it grew on me and the Chucky stage was fun, but the other stages were great too.  I like the reapeating, ummmm, "impact" of watch the other shows.
  4. Twisted Traditions - 8/10
    This zone should be here every year.  Yeah, very similar to others, but if it ain't broke why fix it?  Wouldn't change a thing about it.
  5. The Harvest - 6/10
    Pretty boring.  Not sure why they didn't put up displays for the orignal houses.  Stilt walkers were awesome, but they turned into photo ops and the other scare actors had a hard time doing good scares since it was so damn crowded in there.  Not bad by any means, but just didn't quite work as it is.



  1. Academy of Villians - 7/10
    I LOVED their show the past couple years, but in the big stadium it really sucks as you don't get to pick where you sit.  We sat off to the side so we didn't get the head on perspective.  It was still really good and had a ton of energy...but it started to drag on a bit about 20 minutes in.  So happy that they had songs with curses in them...I know, that's stupid and childish to say but I'm a huge Rob Zombie fan and nothing is worse than "More Human Than Human" being edited so it sounds horrible.



I'd give the year a 9/10.  It was definitely my favorite year for originals since the IPs started up.  It' s right up there with 25.
