Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood 2018 Speculation

Ok but can someone seriously explain to me why they decided to cut AHS from this years lineup? And put in the First Purge and Blumhouse? *sigh*

contract was for only 2 years. Murdy chose to do Roanoke "ONLY" last year, instead of Asylum, Coven, & Roanoke like Orlando did. That is the only reason why we didn't get AHS this year.

 

Since The Purge is easy & budget-friendly, that is why they chose to do it.... plus they own it & wanted to promote it

Any guesses who the musician is? John 5? 


It's going to be Slash, as he's doing the score for the Universal Monsters house.

 

From the site:
Inspired by Universal’s legendary horror films, the Universal Monstersmaze—featuring an original score produced and composed by GRAMMY® Award-winning musician, SLASH—will shake horror fans to the core with a petrifying modern rendition.

They had a shitload of black plywood left over, and Blumhouse just lends itself to long meaningless hallways. 

 

Seriously, my thought is that with people so polarized by politics, they just really don't want to touch Cult this year.  They could leave out any mention of politics, then it would just be a clown house.  Assuming they still have a contract, maybe they will do an Armageddon house next year or maybe Armageddon/Cult.

Is that what a joke looks like when you have early onset Alzheimer's? 

 

Um....what?  Who was that aimed at and why?

If it was me, not funny, thank you.  My dad suffered from Alzheimer's for many years, and I am therefore at risk of early onset.  Not really a thing to joke about. 

Kinda like how cervical cancer is not very funny, right?  That would be my wife's mother, putting her at great risk. But whatever floats your boat.

I mean, how is anyone supposed to know, right?  But that's why it's not a brilliant idea to throw snark like that out there on a board where you know no one...?

 

I'm not 100% certain, but Slash makes the most sense.  From the site:

I think the lineup is great, outside of HOB.

It's only weird because there's a big chunk of popular stuff not being utilized like we know they usually would tackle immediately. IT is the most obvious. Halloween 2018 not happening is a weird curveball because we have Halloween 4 instead. AHS deliberately only did one season last year for what seemed like saving for the next year, but it's absent. The Conjuring taking a few years to happen seemed natural until now.

I predict from here on, we're going to see a major shake up in the way HHN does things. I'm hoping that means more original mazes.

Weinstein, WB's haunt, and the Fox merger have essentially changed the entire way HHN operates.

If rumors of Blumhouse buying Scream are true, we can finally see a Scream maze. Freddy and Jason will never be seen again unless you go down the road to Burbank. And with Disney owning Fox, MAYBE, and I pray to the Haunt lords, they'll see DCA as a possible Haunt location to fill some mazes up with (Imagine Disney doing AvP this time, it'd be phenomenal.)

INSTABLOCK!  I love that ignore user button.  

 

 

Sounds great, DTH.  I don't think there's any speculation left.  

I so hope you're right about originals, but I just don't see that happening under Murdy.

I know we are done here but I just noticed the blumhouse maze isn't listed on the site any more. 

Weird, I see it on the main page with all the other mazes but you’re right it isn’t I’m the drop down menu. However, when you search for it on the site it does come up with the maze description and everything. Probably just a glitch

Probably but I was kinda hoping they scrapped it last minute and changed it lol. I just watched truth or dare. Terrible movie. Still gotta watch unfriended. I'll be there October 4th.

I really am bummed out that I cant  make it this year. 
 Despite a lot hate Hollywood gets it's still a decent event. 
I want to go next year regardless of the line up. 
 I was hoping for ahs cult house, I doubt it would happen tho because the real life victims of Jim Jones, Manson Family and zodiac killer and assassination of Andy Warhol.

Does anyone jere ever do a meetup at HHN?

 

littlegreenghouls, I was kind of thinking there was a strong feeling AHS would be part of the lineup this year. But with the next season coming out much faster than usual my guess is that with this new season being a cross story of previous seasons, I bet it will be back at next year's HHN

This got me thinking because there is always a meet up thread every year so I checked and there is, but no one has posted anything on it lol

Well this is only my 3rd year on this forum I think so I haven't seen it. Anyway....I'm always interested in online comraderie. 

 

I'm watching unfriended right now.  Yeah I don't get how to make this a maze. Interesting creepy movie though.

Was there no Employee Preview night?  No one has any reports?

There was,  and while I didn't attend the gist of this year is: Yes there's black walls, not to the extent of last year. Overall house quality is far superior from last year, so much so that someone has stated that their #5 house this year would have been their #2 house last year.

Great to hear!  My daughter has been begging me to go so based on this early report I bought us an FFP.  We will go first on Friday.  Then I'm off next week to Orlando.  Sounds like Orlando's Poltergeist is the house of the century.  Any word about Hollywood's?

I went on Saturday. Crowds were horrible and was only able to get through Trick R Treat, Stranger Things, Poltergeist, Halloween, and Terror Tram. Poltergeist was the winner of the night for sure, but compared to the video of Orlando I watched, doesn't even come close to that masterpiece. Terror Tram is literally (I really mean it) a waste of time unless the wait is 15 minutes or less.

 

Quite frankly I can't see myself going back to HHN Hollywood. The quality and experience do not compare to what is offered in Orlando. I was offended by all the black walls/blank space that they left in all the houses, and I learned that this was the first year they started selling actual booze... but only in two places, so you have to wait (surprise) 20 minutes to get it. Plus, 160 dollars for an express pass that is basically essential to see everything? No thanks. At least offer me boozey blood bags while I wait 90 minutes for a haunted house! 

 

Are they going through growing pains or something? Orlando really is top dog in all aspects. This was my first year going here in Hollywood and man... I was not impressed in the slightest. Watching some videos of Orlando really made me miss it over there.

I was going to go yesterday (Thursday 9/27), but couldn't get out of work in time for the free parking.

I tracked the wait times through the night using the app, and the place was a ghost town!

7PM - 5-10 minute wait for everything

Through 8:30 - 20 min H4, 15 min Monsters; otherwise 5-10 for everything

 

From 10PM onward it was really weird.  It was as if there was a roaming hoard moving from house to house.  Everything was 5-10 except where the roaming hoard went, it would be 45 min.

So you would see Purge go to 45 min for about 20 min, then drop to 5 min, and Poltergeist would go to 45 min, then drop to 5 min, then Blumhouse go to 45 min.  But everything else 5-10 min.

Then at the end of the evening, H4 spiked as everyone was leaving.

 

Would have been a hell of a night to go.  I think 10/4 and 11/1 may be the last nights like that.
