Themes For Halloween Horror Nights Orlando

"Two houses will be devoted to Dracula and Dr. Frankenstein's monster. Two others are inspired by B movies based on a Midwestern, chainsaw-wielding family and "cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers," Roddy said. The eighth house will highlight several horror films including Shaun of the Dead and The Phantom of the Opera".

"The scare zones will spotlight corpses reanimated into super-soldiers, a toxic green mist, a chainsaw drill team, an abandoned drive-in theater and half-human, half-beasts. One zone will be devoted to Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, a Universal Pictures film also set to open Oct. 23".

"Two stage shows return: "Bill & Ted's Excellent Halloween Adventure" and " The Rocky Horror Picture Show: A Tribute."

House we already knew...
Saw
Child's Play
The Wolfman

I knew but had not posted...
Dracula
Frankenstein

So #6,7, and 8 are...
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
C.H.U.D.
and a house where each room is probably themed for a different film.

Scare Zones
Super-soldiers Zombies
Toxic green mist
Chainsaw drill team
Abandoned drive-in theater
Half-human, half-beasts
Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant

I'm not so excited about some of these, I'm sure it will be fun. I guess I get my hopes up and then they go and bring the freaking "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" back again for the third time. WTF! We were hoping we would get the "Halloween, Michael Myers" house like there are doing at Universal Hollywood!?! I know I sound like a spoiled little kid, but I just hate it when they rehash houses over and over again. People want new houses each year, at least take a year off between rerunning a house. The other houses should be good, I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with the classic monsters. I'm also looking forward to seeing the Abandoned drive-in theater and the Cirque Du Freak scare zones. Less then 28 days till the employee preview!

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

Dammit.

Dracula. Frankenstein. Vampire's Assistant.

WHOSE IDEA WAS IT TO GET MARRIED ON HALLOWEEN, EFFECTIVELY F*CKING MY YEARLY TREK TO ORLANDO THIS TIME OF YEAR?

Can you tell me that? I would have actually gone to HHN for those three things alone!

:) Sounds like fun. I am honestly disappointed, and seriously considering a weekend trip if I can find some extra money (ha! not likely)

I'd definitely be hanging around the Dracula, Frankenstein, and Wolfman houses. Maybe they'll be re-hashing them again some year when I get to go :)

Oh, I have to move. This living on the west coast is killing me!! Maybe they will keep some of the pieces for us to view on the Hauntcon tour next year. I know wishful thinking....but the Frog Queen can dream :)

Have a great time, be sure to post pictures!!

Cheers!
