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.

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.

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.

 

Things will be Stranger at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights 2018

For Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights first announcement of 2018, “Stranger Things” will be making its maze/house debut at Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood, Orlando, and Singapore.

This should be an interesting new HHN experience as the series itself isn’t really scary (in our opinion) but the supernatural settings and creatures tied with 80’s nostalgia could make for some very cool maze designs.  We’re not very surprised by this announcement as “Stranger Things” is currently one of the most popular Sci-Fi/Horror/Fantasy series and we wouldn’t expect Universal to pass up to the opportunity to capitalize on this hot property.  It also offers the potential to be a returning maze in future years as more seasons come out, just like we’ve seen with American Horror Story and The Walking Dead (who seem like they will never die).

Here’ s more details about the mazes from Universal —

Fans of Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ will be able to confront the supernatural and brave the “Upside Down” in these all-new HHN mazes. The Upside Down is a parallel universe that terrorized the small town of Hawkins, Indiana in the ‘Stranger Things.’ In these all-new mazes Halloween Horror Nights guests will encounter scenes and characters from ‘Stranger Things’ including the Demogorgon, a large flesh-eating creature with a mouth as a face that stalks the Upside Down and is unleashed by experimenters at Hawkins National Laboratory.

The Horror Nights teams are working closely with Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer and producer Shawn Levy, who say they will authentically recreate the series’s first season storylines “from the menacing Hawkins National Laboratory under the U.S. Department of Energy, to the Byers home adorned with an erratic display of flashing Christmas lights, and the eerie Upside Down woods oozing a shower of floating orb-like spores”. The chilling new mazes promise surprising twists and unexpected turns around every corner.

Halloween Horror Nights returns in September, only five months away!  In the meanwhile, you can catch up or rewatch the first and second seasons of “Stranger Things” as you impatiently wait to venture into the Upside Down in real life and to watch the new third season, which doesn’t have an announced return date yet.

Halloween Horror Nights Dates:

Hollywood: TBA

Orlando: Sept 14- Nov 3

Singapore: Sept 28- Oct 31

 

HAUNT REVIEW: CREEP LA’s LORE

Creep LA, the masters of haunt experiences in LA, have teamed up with Amazon Prime Video to create a truly unique immersive theater experience this Halloween season.

Past Creep LA experiences have been highly rated  here on The  Scare Zone and this year continues the tradition of the well produced interactive theatrical haunt experience.  Unlike the previous years  (“Creep Los Angeles”, “The Willows”) , this year’s CreepLA is closely tied to an intellectual property. Derived from Aaron Mahnke’s popular podcast, Lore is  an Amazon Prime Exclusive’s new six-episode anthology series that presents the frightening and often disturbing tales based on real people and events that have led to our modern-day myths and legends. Celebrating the origins of the horror genre, Lore explores the real-life tales behind pop culture’s most legendary horror myths, such as vampires, changelings, werewolves, séances and possessed dolls.

Creep LA: Lore takes small groups of eight inside an imagined universe where they’ll travel through a fully engaging, multi-sensory, 1-hour walk-thru experience. At Creep LA: Lore, everyone is part of the experience whether they intend to be or not. To be clear this is not one of those torture and humiliation haunt concepts.  Guests may get touched (or kissed) but it’s all within boundaries.

This year’s show has definitely taken the production to a new level (having the corporate partnership is always a good thing). The size and scope of the venue is huge and each scene is  intricately  designed. The settings create dynamic and diverse environments. The talent is also top notch. Some of the highlighted performances include the nurse that recites a spooky bedtime story to the group and room of disturbed orphans, a woman looking for her son that has disappeared with a rather creepy looking doll,  and a lobotomy doctor with his disembodied assistants.

One of the challenges of performing a haunt show is that the actors do have to rely on the audience actively participating, which can lead to some unpredictable outcomes from show to show. We strongly suggest that you don’t try to hide or act too smug as you will then be the person who is picked on. During the show everyone can expect to be separated from the group at some point.

Being honest, there were a few WTF moments in the show as some of the scenes didn’t seem to flow smoothly or provide a satisfactory finale. Perhaps it’s because we weren’t fully familiar with Lore yet. We remember the previous years having more suspense and scares built into the experiences. Nonetheless, this year’s show is able to compensate with it’s overall higher quality of production and is a high caliber Halloween theatrical haunt experience. Plus, with the themed bar at the end, it’s setup as the perfect Halloween season date, friends, or all to yourself night out.

HAUNT REVIEW: Zombie Joe’s Urban Death – Tour Of Terror Year 5

Unless you’re holding your breath while waiting for a maniacal killer to leave the room you’re hiding in, time goes by fast.

We can’t believe it’s already been 5 years since Zombie Joe’s Underground Theater Group premiered Urban Death: Tour Of Terror. Since day one this has definitely been one of the most unique and unnerving haunt experiences in Los Angeles.

The number 5 is the most dynamic and energetic of all the single-digit numbers. Just like the ‘Tour of Terror’ it is unpredictable, always in motion and constantly in need of change. Although it is molded from an almost equal mix of masculine and feminine qualities, in general the 5 is slightly more feminine — albeit a daring, tomboyish kind of feminine, with nothing demure or submissive about her.

For its fifth Halloween season the darkened doors of Zombie Joe’s Underground Theater Group have reopened with a production that sustains all the bizarre, frightening , and fun elements that we’ve come to love from ZJU. It also adds in even more freakish mayhem that continues to push the boundaries of terror and morality.

The show begins with a unique and surprisingly long maze through a pitch black corridor. A tiny flashlight provides only a small beam of light that illuminates the depraived creeps lurking about. This grand entrance to the theatre made us both scream, laugh, and cringe.

After surviving the mini-maze the audience settles into the theater and the lights go out again. From here the show classic’s format plays out with unsettling scenes that capture quick horrific slices of life and death. What we appreciate about ‘Tour of Terror’ is that each year they creatively blend previous scenes with new and even more over-the-top sequences that make the show both familiar and fresh. Five years in and it’s still thrilling.

After the show we’re again given flashlights to venture back through the maze, where a new set of creepy performers and haunted surprises materialize. The intensity of this second trip back is even higher than the first.

Zombie Joe’s has some of the most dedicated, bold, and talented performers we’ve seen at a haunt show. While it can appear simplistic, the complexities of the production can’t be overlooked.  They actors’ ability to hit their marks in the darkness and the full reset of multiple scenes in a matter of seconds has us in awe.

We concur that the fifth year is the best yet, as co-directors and creators Zombie Joe and Jana Wimer keep pushing the show to new heights. Just like the number five, it is an unpredictable mix of masculine and feminine qualities. This haunt show is definitely for bold and brave adult audiences. Leave your inhibitions at the door.
