The first confirmed Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood news of 2014 is finally here! As teased at this year’s Monsterpalooza, HHN fan’s will get to choose their doom in 2014!
Last year HHN had the design a classic character contest, which for the first time offered fans a new way to interact with HHN by playing a role in it’s creation. A simple but genuis PR move. The winning character, the Invisible Man, was featured inside the Universal Monsters Remix: Resurrection maze. This year they’re reemploying the democratic process and allowing fans to vote for what they believe to be the “scariest” Scare Zone theme to be featured on their French Street aka Moulin Street in the park’s upper lot.
There are three very frighteningly intriguing theme choices, each based appropriately based upon French culture/history, and we think it’s going to be a hard decision. These all look rather scary to us. Check them out…
“The War to End All Wars” has left a swathe of destruction through battle-torn France, and on French Street at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights, World War I-era soldiers have returned from the dead. The constant artillery bombardment has turned the twisted network of trenches into a sprawling graveyard, and now “The Lost Generation” is rising from their muddy graves and coming home to haunt the streets of “old Paris.”
“Masquerade Balls were a staple of the social calendar in pre-Revolutionary War France; a time for the members of the French aristocracy to misbehave behind the cover of elaborate, jeweled masks. But “mask-a-raiding” among the powdered and perfumed party-goers are members of a blood thirsty cannibal cult. Bon appétit!”
“In 19th century France, restrictive laws and social norms prevented medical colleges from acquiring the one asset they need most – human cadavers. To solve this “body shortage crisis,” universities employed “unsavory characters” to do their dirty work and steal corpses from cemeteries in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, the grave robbers on Universal Studios Hollywood’s French Street have developed a morbid fascination with the dead – and a taste for human flesh.”
We ask our fellow Haunt Stalkers to choose wisely. The voting officially begins on the HHN Hollywood Facebook page this Wednesday, June 4th and ends on June 18th, with the winning theme to be officially announced on June 19th!
We’re dying to know what our Haunt Stalkers will vote for so please feel free to share your vote in our comments section below. You can also tweet us and use the hashtag #UniversalHHN to campaign for your favorite theme.
