4th of July Horror Movies – Let Freedom Scream!

We wish all our Haunt Stalkers, but mostly the American ones, a fun but scary Fourth of July!  Today we fire up the barbecues, fireworks, and some classic summertime horror flicks.

In the spirit of the holiday, and pure American Horror, we’ve picked off these 4 Patriotic, All-American, and July 4th holiday-themed terror flicks for your viewing (dis)pleasure. Of course, when we watch horror movies, we’re always looking to see if they have haunt potential. We see some of these flicks on this list as providing eerie settings and creepy characters that would be good for haunts.

4. 2001 Maniacs: Eight college students traveling to Florida stumble into a remote town in Georgia where they are set upon by the residents who are out to avenge their deaths by Union troops over 100 years earlier during the Civil War.

2001 Maniacs 01 01-1

This movie is campy, corny, gory with some over-the-top murder scenes that could make even the most hardcore horror fan cringe. The settings and characters lend themselves very well to a sadistically themed haunt but may be too explicit for a haunt.

3. Jaws: A Great White Shark decides to make the small beach resort town of Amity his private feeding grounds. This greatly frustrates the town police chief who wants to close the beaches to chase the shark away. He is thwarted in his efforts by the town’s mayor who finally relents when nothing else seems to work and the chief, a scientist, and an old fisherman with revenge on his mind take to the sea to kill the beast. 

Jaws

This is a classic horror film that takes place on the July 4th holiday. Jaws may be a difficult haunt to make but not impossible – perhaps if it was based on the town of Amity which is now cursed by the ghosts victims of Jaws. The finale of the maze can have these enraged spirits sending you into the depths of the ocean for a face to Jaws encounter with the Great White terror itself. Just a suggestion @HHN.

2. I Know What You Did Last Summer: It’s the fourth of July and four friends are celebrating along with graduation. On their way home, they hit a pedestrian walking down a dark and curvy road. After disposing of the body they make a pact to keep it a secret in hopes of saving their futures. The following summer it seems that he or someone who saw them is ready to put them back on the hook (literally).

i-know-what-you-did-last-summer

The movie’s killer fisherman with a hook hand has been featured in a few haunts we’ve experienced over the years. Most notably was Dead Man’s Wharf at Knott’s Scary Farm, which featured a maniac (with the fisherman’s rain slicker and hook) stalking victims in a fog-shrouded shipyard.

1. Uncle Sam: A Desert Storm vet who was killed in combat rises from the grave on July Fourth, to kill the unpatriotic citizens of his hometown, after some teens burn an American flag over his burial site.

sambox

This is the ultimate Fourth of July themed horror movie. Uncle Sam was trying to be to the Fourth of July what Michael Myers is to Halloween but it turned out to be very campy and low-budget. You know, like how Leprechaun is to St. Patrick’s day. Nonetheless, Uncle Sam is extremely creepy himself with some patriotic murder tactics who we would be scared to see stalking us in a haunt… we actually think we have (?).

 

Honorable mentions:

The Purge:  Election Year – Oh, it’s just Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam stalking and killing people they don’t like.

Return of the Living Dead – All the punk zombie shenanigans takes place during the early morning hours of July 4th!

Final Destination 3 – A killer fireworks scene

SLAUGHTER SINEMA PREMIERES THIS FALL at HHN Orlando

Universal Orlando has announced Slaughter Sinema as the next original house for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.

The Slaughter Sinema theme involves 80’s monster movies and the die… drive-in movie theaters experience. The monsters and creatures that will be featured in this house will include werewolf bikers, deadly barbers, and a “ravenous swamp Yeti”  (oh yeah!).

We’re taking 80s B-movie monsters and creatures and putting them into one frightening experience—Slaughter Sinema. This new house joins the line-up of original storylines you’ll brave at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 28. It’s showtime at the local drive-in. As you approach, you’ll see movie trailers of what you’re about to witness, filling you with dread as you make your way inside. The smell of popcorn will be first to hit your senses as you find yourself in a movie theater snack bar. But from there, it’s all downhill for this double-feature.

In one film, you’ll be hunted by werewolf bikers. In another, you’ll come across a bloody, gut-strewn pumpkin patch. And did I mention deadly barbers? You’ll find yourself screaming through this sinister sinema as you try to avoid becoming the snack of alien cannibals, creatures with tons of teeth and a ravenous swamp yeti. Yes, you read that right.

Here are a few movie posters of the fearsome flicks you’ll see.

This year’s HHN event is going to be so intense with more houses than ever, terrifying scare zones and a powerhouse show.  The event will run from Sept. 14 to Nov. 3.  Vist HERE for more details and tickets.

MIDSUMMER SCREAM’s HALL OF SHADOWS BIGGER-THAN-EVER

More than 20,000 fans of all things macabre are expected to make their annual pilgrimage to the Long Beach Convention Center in Southern California for the third annual Midsummer Scream, as the Hall of Shadows attraction expands to occupy 80,000 terrifying square feet of the world’s largest Halloween and horror convention.

“Hall of Shadows is a Halloween theme park set up within the convention center where brave guests can step into the darkness and find themselves surrounded by swirling fog and terrifying monsters,” explains Rick West, Creative Director, Midsummer Scream. “Here, visitors will experience over a dozen haunted attractions, live entertainment, and check out exhibitors who are right at home in this dimly-lit environment. Hall of Shadows is a virtual commercial for Halloween in Southern California, and has become a huge, unique feature of Midsummer Scream that isn’t replicated anywhere else.”

Midsummer Scream will feature vendors and exhibitors within the Hall, each one selected to be showcased in the dark due to their particular merchandise or product type. Guests will also enjoy a performance stage where they can watch horror-themed burlesque, magic, and much more throughout the weekend.

Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Fright Fest will be represented this year in the form of a terrifying scare zone that acts as the gateway to the featured haunted attractions area within the Hall of Shadows; this year marks the first time a major Southern California theme park has participated in such a way at Midsummer Scream.

Three times daily, Midsummer Scream presents the Decayed Brigade within its Hall of Shadows – a high-energy monster performance team made up of some of the best “sliders” in the world. Returning for their third year at Midsummer Scream, the Decayed Brigade is set to wow guests of all ages with their dynamic showmanship, intense physical stunts, and thrilling feats of strength and agility on a runway that stretches more than 100 feet in length among the Hall’s many haunted attractions.

All attractions within the Hall of Shadows are free with paid admission to Midsummer Scream. Those guests with Gold Bat Weekend Passes will receive one-hour early admission each day at 10 a.m. to the vendor show floor as well as Hall of Shadows. During general operating hours, Gold Bat passholders will find Front of Line access available at each haunted attraction within the Hall of Shadows.

Midsummer Scream has established itself as the premier venue for artisans and vendors to sell spooky merchandise, theme parks and film studios to tease their fans with coming attractions, cosplayers to take a walk on the dark side, makeup artists to show off their terrifying talents, professional haunters and industry experts to present world-class panel discussions, seminars, and classes. In addition to the amazing haunted attractions, displays, and exhibitors in the Hall of Shadows, Midsummer Scream features many experiences throughout the entire show, from theatrical productions to escape rooms and other alternate reality entertainment.

More detailed information regarding Hall of Shadows can be found here, on the official Midsummer Scream website at MidsummerScream.org.

About Midsummer Scream

Midsummer Scream is presented by David Markland and Claire Dunlap of Black Cat Orange (formerly CreepyLA Productions), Gary Baker, Johanna Atilano, and Rick West of Theme Park Adventure. Its goal is to showcase the diversity of Southern California’s haunt and horror community as a welcoming beacon for fans around the world to converge on Los Angeles for a weekend of excitement, networking and non-stop spookery!

Warner Bros. Studio Tour ‘Horror Made Here: A Festival of Frights’ Returns

Universal Studios is no longer the only haunted movie studio in Hollywood. For a few years in a row, Warner Bros. Studios has been hosting their own Halloween horror movie event using their archive of movie properties. We like that they’re remaining committed to this event, which must mean it’s gaining popularity (and making money).

What we could be witnessing is the rise of an all-new annual Halloween haunt experience in Hollywood.Remember when HHN was rebooted in 2006 they only had two mazes, the terror tram. and some scare zones.  If WB Festival of Frights continues to build up, haunt stalkers could have an equally scary and fun alternative to the ever so popular (and crowded) HHN. Don’t get us wrong we’re not saying to pick one over the other but the two together, in such close proximity, could help alleviate the crowds and allow die-hard haunt stalkers to double down on two Haunted movie studio attractions. Plus, WB has Pennywise which probably means that HHN is S.O.L. in getting their own ‘It’ maze.

(PRNewsfoto/Warner Bros. Studio Tour)

This Halloween season, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood (WBSTH) will send chills down guests’ spines with the return of Horror Made Here: A Festival of Frights. This year’s event will host even more dark mazes, scare zones, horror-themed activities, and plenty of food and drinks available throughout our creepy carnival on Warner Bros.’ legendary backlot.

The Neibolt House maze from New Line Cinema’s record-breaking 2017 film IT will return to Horror Made Here, where guests will experience the full wrath of Pennywise. This year’s reimagined maze will feature new scares and surprises with every twist and turn. Those daring enough to step into the Neibolt House must remember that “It knows what scares you” and beware of Pennywise, who may be lurking in the dark just around the corner.

From DC, fans will experience the iconic and unhinged characters from Batman: Arkham Asylum as the infamous Gotham City institution for the criminally insane is constructed, for the first time ever, on the Warner Bros. backlot. In this brand-new maze, guests must first face their judge, The Joker, who will decide their fate, leading to encounters with his fellow DC Super-Villains – including Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, and Two-Face, among others – as visitors are driven to the brink of madness while navigating the gruesome asylum.

“We’re not just a scare factory or a haunted house – as the creator of legendary horror films, what better way to celebrate Halloween than with a party on the Warner Bros. backlot? We’re thrilled to welcome guests who are ready to brave their deepest nightmares,” said Gary Soloff, Director of Marketing, WBSTH. “Due to the overwhelming demand from last year’s event, we’ve extended our nights and hours and made this year’s festival, night tour, and mazes bigger, better, and scarier, so our guests can expect more pulse-pounding terror than ever before.”

Horror Made Here has been extended from six to 13 nights starting October 5, 2018, with more mazes and details to be announced this summer. Tickets go on sale beginning August 1, starting from $59 per person at horrormadehere.com. This year introduces the “VIP Fright Pass” to accommodate those looking to jump to the front of the line for each attraction and night tour, as well as providing free priority parking and two complimentary beverages.

Horror Made Here: A Festival of Frights is a special ticketed event, held on October 5-6October 11-13October 18-21 and October 25-28, open from 7PM to 1AM. The event ticket includes access to the festival, all scare mazes, and the night tour. Visit horrormadehere.com for more information.

Sinister Pointe’s “SCARY PLACE”

We’ve really missed Sinister Pointe.  Their absence was fully noticed and felt out here in SoCal during haunt season. After a period of darkness, one of our top-rated Haunt events is making the most spectacular return with what’s billed to be the LARGEST MULTI-LEVEL, INDOOR HAUNT EXPERIENCE in California.

In past years the inventive Sinister Pointe Productions team has created some of our most memorable haunted experiences which includes the revival of Queen Mary’s ‘Dark Harbor and the special haunted nights at The Winchester Mystery House.  Through the years, they’ve also terrified us with Christmas and Valentine’s day haunts along with SeancesScavenger Hunts, VR Experiences, and haunted bars.

For fall 2018 they’re unleashing a brand new kind of Halloween event, Sinister Pointe’s Scary Place. Haunt lovers will be scared to death in three stories of unrelenting terror, covering over 150,000 square feet and featuring two all-new mazes and a brand new haunted dark ride. Yes, a ride!

The experience will begin as the brave and foolhardy alike cross the veil into the foggy realm known as the Scary Place. Two mazes and a new ride will await haunt goers in this murky realm of terror for a full night of Halloween fun including…

Evil on 2  (Walkthrough Attraction)

There is an evil that has taken over the second floor of this quaint little hotel and we need you to venture into this maze to investigate! Let’s just hope that the terror within hasn’t spread!

PHOBIAS  (Walkthrough Attraction)

Welcome to “PHOBIAS”. Step right up and see if you have what it takes when you’re put up against some of your greatest fears. A fully interactive maze experience that will test your abilities to cope with your worst nightmares. We hope for your sake, being alone isn’t one of them!

Boogeyman Express (Ride):

All aboard the boogeyman express. Rumor has it that the boogeyman and his evil minions roam these grounds hunting innocent bystanders! So I have an idea, let’s go see if the rumors are true! Please keep your hands and arms inside the carts at all times, for this here is the most hair-raising terror train in the wilderness!

Between the screams, horror fiends can feast on a variety of snack foods and check out the revolting entertainment including the main stage, wandering magicians, games, roaming packs of monsters, and the Sinister Pointe Dark Market where new merchandise from vicious vendors will be available for purchase.

“For 20 years I have been producing Haunted Attractions that many guests have traveled great distances just to experience a 15-minute attraction. I figured it’s time to give our fans an experience that will last an entire evening!” says Jeff Schiefelbein, the creative fiend behind Sinister Pointe.

Two types of tickets will be available, allowing guests to choose their fate. The All Night Pass will allow guests unlimited access to all entertainment, attractions, and vendors for a single price starting at $42 on select nights, and $52.00 on Friday and Saturday nights. The All Night VIP Access allows for front of the line access to all mazes and attractions, along with priority seating for shows and performances with prices starting at just $60.00 on select nights, and $70.00 on Friday and Saturday nights.

Tickets: https://ocevents.ticketspice.com/scaryplace18

Scary Place will take place at the Laguna Hills Mall located at 24155 Laguna Hills Mall, Laguna Hills, CA, and will run on September 28-30 and October 4-7, 11-14, 18-21, 25-28, 31. Hours will be from 7:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. on Sundays – Thursdays.

Where do you go when you close your eyes? Sinister Pointe wants to send you to your Scary Place.

2018 Haunt Season Preview: It’s Gonna Be a BIG Year

Although it’s not officially even summer yet, 2018 haunt news is starting to trickle in. Big reveals are likely to be made closer to the Southern California haunt conventions in July and August, but as haunts start their hiring and building processes, we’re getting some clues about what to expect this year. From major theme parks to new independents, early signs indicate that 2018 is shaping up to be one of the better years in recent memory for haunt goers in SoCal. To keep you in the loop, we’ve gathered some of the rumors and information we’ve learned so far:

Halloween Horror Nights

We’ve already had a couple of official reveals for Halloween Horror Nights mazes.  Stranger Things and Trick r’ Treat are two HUGE intellectual properties to get the maze treatment in both Orlando and Hollywood this year. With a such rabid fans for both of these, creating satisfying experiences is going to be tough, but if anyone can pull it off, it’s HHN. A new scare zone was also announced for Hollywood, called “Holidayz in Hell.” And of course, we’re still curious to see if Michael Myers will return to HHN to coincide with the new Halloween movie released this October.  John Murdy has said there’s not likely to be another maze announcement in June, but there’s usually at least one big reveal at Midsummer Scream (July 28-29). Although we love the movie-based mazes, we keep our fingers crossed every year for an original concept, because those have been some of our favorites over the years (La Llorona, El Cucuy).

Sinister Pointe

The past few years have been a bit tumultuous for Sinister Pointe. We had fun at their off-season Séance and Christmas events, but their 2016 haunt offering seemed like an afterthought and didn’t live up to what these haunt masters are capable of. They were dark in 2017, leaving us worried they might fade away into the fog. That’s why we’re already excited for what they have planned for 2018–although we don’t even know what it will be yet. But they’re promising it will be “the largest Halloween event this side of the Mississippi.” That’s some major hype. All we know for sure so far is that it will be located in Irvine, and scareactor auditions will be held at the end of June.  We expect some sneak peeks at the conventions and will be watching closely for developments.

Horrorworld

Last year’s Into the Black was our favorite haunt  of the year. It was original and (most importantly) very scary, but we were nervous whether it drew enough attendance to make a return in 2018. So we were extremely happy  to hear that Larry Bones is expanding his haunt operation this year with Horrorworld, which is being billed as a “multi-haunt attraction.” The twist with this event is that it looks like each haunt will be run independently, since they were seeking out haunt owners for participation. It will be interesting to see whether the haunts will be matched in caliber and quality, and whether the Into the Black maze returns or is replaced by something new. Although the exact location hasn’t been announced, Asuza was given as the city, and a teaser photo showed what appeared to be an empty grocery store in a strip mall.

Both Horrorworld and Sinister Pointe will have vendor areas, so we wonder how much alike these two events will be overall. Time will tell.

Reign of Terror

ROT typically changes things up a bit each year, but they’re teasing “massive changes” to 2 of their 8 “haunts within a haunt” for 2018. We don’t know which of their attractions will get a makeover, but both Casa Blood and Asylum have been around for a while, so it might be time for a refresh for these. If it were up to us, we would suggest swapping out the Fun House for something a bit darker and more original.  No matter what changes they have planned, this haunt gets better year after year, and it should be on everyone’s must-see list this October.

DOCTOR ZOMBA’S GHOST SHOW OF TERROR

A new haunt show with magic and comedy is now playing in Hollywood, CA!

A modern-day revival of the “Ghost Show” popular in the 1950’s that features spooky magic, comedy, a seance, and a blackout sequence at the end where the audience is fully immersed in the realm of spirits and monsters.

Join Doctor Zomba and his lovely assistant Sirena, and the slightly less lovely Ear-Gore as they perform mesmerizing tricks, contact the dead, and unleash monsters from beyond the grave! First, sign your waiver! We are not responsible if this show literally scares you to death! One lucky audience member will win a real dead body!

See Professor Payne and the infamous Mutilator Machine. It thirsts for blood! Will it be yours?!

Starring David M Beach as Doctor Zomba!

WHO IS THIS SHOW FOR? All the monster kids that grew up loving Halloween, haunted houses, Famous Monsters of Filmland, & TV Horror Hosts. While much of the supernatural phenomena in the Ghost Show is played for laughs, there is a two-minute blackout sequence at the climax in which the audience is in pitch darkness, and they will SEE, HEAR and FEEL the mysterious & unexplained. If your child is younger than 9, or afraid of the dark, this might not be the show for them.

WHERE: The Complex Hollywood 6476 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038

WHEN:
Saturday June 2nd, 10:45 pm – PREVIEW
Saturday, June 9th, 11:45 pm
Saturday June 16th, 11:15 pm, “Pay What You Can” performance
Monday, June 18th, 10:45 pm “Pay What You Can” performance
Saturday, June 23rd, 11:55 pm

TICKETS: $15.00 http://hff18.org/4842

THE CAST: David M Beach, Kerr Lordygan, Tamara Torres, and Shelby Alessandro Martinez

DIRECTED BY Kevin Wetmore (Professor & Chair of Theatre Arts at Loyola Marymount University).

WRITTEN/PRODUCED BY David Lucarelli (writer of Tinseltown from Alterna Comics & The Children’s Vampire Hunting Brigade graphic novels). “Before they put on haunted houses for Halloween, ghost shows were a spooky, scary, funny way to celebrate the things that go bump in the night. The climax of each show was the blackout sequence in which the audience was enveloped in supernatural phenomena. They had all kinds of tricks to make that happen. We went back and studied the actual ghost show manuals from the 1950’s, and then we came up with a few tricks of our own! I don’t want to give away all our secrets, but I’ll just say I am an audio engineer and there are certain low frequencies that instill fear in humans. That’s just for starters!

“The casting of David M Beach as Doctor Zomba proved to be a real stroke of luck. One of the best ghost shows from the 50’s was Doctor Silkini’s. Years ago, the people that had the rights to the show hand picked comedian/actor/magician David Beach to be the new Doctor Silkini for a revival. It didn’t end up happening, but we’re extremely excited to we have the natural successor to one of the Ghost Show masters as our star!’

Trick ‘r Treat (Finally) Comes to Halloween Horror Nights

Ever since the movie Trick ‘r Treat came out in 2007, HHN fans have been desperately begging Universal to bring the cult Halloween classic to life. It’s one of the maze themes that is speculated, asked for, and discussed on #HHN social media every single year. Last year, HHN Orlando featured a Trick ‘r Treat Scare Zone, which was considered to be one of the most popular. So after a successful test run, both Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood will get complete Trick ‘r Treat mazes this year.

For those who don’t know about the movie (why are you even on this site) Trick ‘r Treat is a 2007 anthology black comedy horror film written and directed by Michael Dougherty. The film centers on four Halloween-related horror stories. One common element that ties the stories together is the presence of Sam, a mysterious child trick-or-treater wearing shabby orange footie pajamas with a burlap sack over his head, who makes an appearance in all the stories whenever a character breaks Halloween traditions. He’s the keeper of the rules and the spirit of Halloween. He may look cute on the outside but you don’t want to get on his bad side… or the receiving end of his lollipop.

This theme is a no-brainer for HHN and should provide for some fun traditional Halloween scares. It also will be a great compliment to the Halloween (Michael Myers) maze that we’re highly confident will be featured at HHN.

The Trick ‘r Treat maze will transport guests to Warren Valley, Ohio on Halloween night to celebrate the holiday’s dark traditions and daring them to live by the rules or suffer the consequences. Recreating some of the anthology’s most iconic scenes, the disturbing new maze invites brave thrill-seekers to become entwined within the secrets of this sleepy suburban town encountering all the grisly scenes and demented characters. They will meander through Mr. Kreeg’s infamous house, watch as college students viciously transform into bloodthirsty werewolves and dismember the town, as well as come face-to-face with Sam – the spirit of Halloween – who readies to punish those who break the holiday’s tradition. These guardians of Halloween will teach you the traditions of the holiday as you find out first hand the consequences of breaking those rules. With monsters around every turn, you need to pay attention…or suffer the ultimate fate.
