Check out the behind the scenes pictures from our friends at who were able to take a special private preview tour of this year’s HHN at Universal Hollywood. They also have pictures of the preparations taking place at Knott’s and Disneyland.

Of course, we wish we could have been there, and even though we’ve already reached out to John Murdy and the HHN Hollywood team to no avail, we won’t take it personally. We know that we’re the newest (and most comprehensive) haunt reporters on the block, so we’ll just be out there opening night to see if this year’s event lives (or dies) up to all of the hype.
