I have recently returned from Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights event and I am currently in haunt mode leading up to Halloween, which is exactly why I will be watching and reviewing the new movie ‘The Houses October Built’ which features a fresh new idea in the found-footage genre based around haunted attractions… I can’t wait to review this movie and look for the article some time this weekend right back here at FirstClassHorror. The following is just a small little overview of the movie and the trailer etc… Enjoy guys!

THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT
Synopsis
Americans annually spend over 8 Billion dollars on Halloween. Nearly 2,500
haunted attractions open each year, with over 30 million customers attending
annually.
This is the story of a group of friends who set out to find the most terrifying haunt
in the U.S. — a fabled traveling haunt that blurs the lines between a carnival thrill
ride and a living nightmare.
Six days before Halloween a group of five friends (Zack, Bobby, Brandy, Mikey,
and Jeff) celebrate with a wild night out on the town before loading up their RV to
begin a cross-country road trip.

Approaching the first haunt, each character’s
personality begins to separate as they dissect their individual fears and
expectations. But the intrigue of a standard walk through haunted house quickly
fades and the bar must be raised.

The group stumbles upon some of Halloween’s
most creative haunts: The group gets to become the hunters instead of the
hunted. A “Zombie Paintball” excursion where you shoot rounds at real “human”
zombies.

They then find themselves deep in the trenches of All Hallows’ Eve
erotica inside a “Zombie Strip Club.” And finally an adventurous desire kicks in for
something even more intense…something off the beaten path…the most extreme
haunted house ever created. The group starts questioning haunt workers and
patrons, searching chat rooms, before finally receiving an invitation to the elusive
BLUE SKELETON…a haunt with no website…no recorded history…only an urban
legend.

But they quickly discover that the HAUNT has found them. They come
face to face with the BLUE SKELETON and confront their ultimate fear, blurring
the lines between what is fake…and what is very, very real.

It’s getting to that time of year again guys when the Haunt season rolls in and everybody is starting to prepare for Halloween Horror Nights! The following are some random tips for anyone travelling to the event this year! Feel free to leave any other tips etc that you may think of in the comments below!

Thanks guys!

When should I go?

Any night in September is good. The later you go in Fall, the busier it will be. Saturdays are the busiest days of the week, followed by Friday. You should avoid the week before Halloween at all costs. November 1st is the last night of the event, and the crowds return to September levels, if that.

Is an Express Pass worth it?

It fluctuates in price each night. Some nights you would be paying as much as a regular admission. I’d consider buying one if 5/8 of the houses exceed a 90 minute wait time. So, in summary, get one on Fridays and Saturdays between Oct. 15-31.

Other Tips and Tricks

*The first and last Bill and Ted show each night are the least crowded

*Start your house from the back of the park and make your way to the front of the park as the night progresses.

*HHN is at its peak capacity around 10:30. Guests start to leave after then. Get into the park as close to the opening as you can.

*Talk to strangers. It helps distract you from the lines you’re waiting in.

I usually bring a backpack filled with the following items:

  • Poncho – Probably the most important item in my backpack. I recall one night where it rained literally all night. My girlfriend and I were soaked from head to toe. Then we bought ponchos. It at least keeps the rain off of your clothes. The downside to a poncho is that it gets pretty humid inside of it due to your body heat and the rain.
  • Small Umbrella – If you have the poncho, you’re probably ok. I bring a small umbrella just in case I don’t feel like wearing a poncho and the rain isn’t that bad.
  • Extra Socks/Shoes – This is only if you anticipate the rain is going to be bad. Usually when it rains, the lines for the houses get filled with huge puddles of water. Then you’re going to step in those big puddles and have wet shoes and socks. Then you’re going to hate your life.
  • Handheld game – Lines are long, and waiting in line staring at the drunk guy who took his shirt off and is singing Lady Gaga is only funny for the first 10 minutes, then it’s just sad and kinda creepy. Therefore, I usually bring my Nintendo DS and I’m distracted long enough to not notice the 2 hour wait times on each of the houses.

The backpack in itself is a great thing to bring because it can hold anything you buy during the event. You will have to open your backpack at the checkpoint to City Walk as well as the entrance to Universal. To make this as smooth and as easy as possible, I put together the following tips.

Things to not bring:

  • Weapons/anything that could be considered a weapon – You are going to have to pass through a metal detector when you come in the park. Don’t bring pocket knives, bottle openers, kendo sticks, or anything else that could be considered a weapon. Otherwise you’ll get it taken away and may not be let in.
  • Pens/Markers – I experienced this last year. I had just come from school so I had some Micron Pens in my backpack. The security pulled me to the side and told me that pens/markers weren’t allowed in the park. They took them, gave me a slip of paper and told me I could pick them up when I left the park. I don’t know what damage I could do with a Micron Pen, but it happened.
  • Alcohol – Alcohol in the park is expensive. I know your friends have done it and gotten away with it, so you’re going to try it. Don’t try and sneak alcohol in. They’ll just make you throw it away. And they won’t let you finish it off either.
  • Masks/Costumes – Just don’t bring these. The scareactors are here to scare people, not you. Which leads me to my next point…

Tips for not being an a-hole at Halloween Horror Nights:

  • Don’t attempt to scare/mess with the scareactors. This is probably the thing I see most from middle schoolers that got dropped off at the park by their moms. They want to look cool and mess with the scareactors. They try to sneak up on them in the streets and scare them from behind. Well it’s not cool, it’s rude and ruins things for the rest of us. This also goes for the houses. Don’t attempt to go into the actor’s boo-holes. Just walk through the house and experience it.
  • Don’t hound the scareactors for pictures. Sure, some will take pictures with you, but they’re here to scare people, not to take a selfie with you on Instagram.
  • Don’t blame the workers for long lines. Treat them with respect. They are just trying to work and put on this great yearly event for us.
  • Don’t touch anything in the houses. The creative team spent tons of time on these houses in making them extremely detailed. There are always drunk people that wander in the houses and rip stuff off of a table in a room. Just look around and experience it. No touchy.
  • Don’t smoke in line. This is probably the most annoying thing ever. Standing behind a guy for 2 hours who is chain smoking. Not only is it inconsiderate, but it can also get you kicked out of line. Universal has designated smoking areas for that.

 

Hi guys, so the following is my tips and tricks  for having the most enjoyable time at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando. First I will give you guys a small overview of what the event is and the target groups!

What is Halloween Horror Nights?

It is an annual event that occurs at Universal Studios FloridaUniversal Studios Hollywood Universal Studios Singapore and Universal Studios Japan. Universal Studios remains operational during the day and transitions to Halloween Horror Nights at night. The event features haunted houses, “scare zones” and live entertainments; many of which utilize Universal’s characters and other licenses.

Is the event for kids?

No way, this event is in no way intended for kids. Teens may be able to handle this event but anybody who is scared easily or may not like being completely immersed in a real life horror movie..this might not be the event for you!!

Universal does a fantastic job of transforming the park into your worst nightmare that has come to life! Even before you walk into the park, you can hear the ominous soundtrack playing, almost guaranteeing that something bad is about to happen. Once you walk in through the gates and down the main street, a group of evil creatures are there to greet you personally. Do you dare head toward the smoke looming in the distance, especially with creatures waiting for you along the way?

Here are tips for Halloween Horror Nights:

1. Buy tickets in advance (Halloween Horror Nights requires a separate ticket from regular theme park admission). You will save money, and you won’t have to wait in line to buy tickets. We’re offering the Halloween Horror Nights plus 2 Day Park-to-Park ticket at a savings of $68 off of gate prices.

Halloween Horror Nights Sign at Seuss Landing at Universal Orlando2. Get to the park early! If you’ve spent the day at Islands of Adventure, you can take a short cut over to Universal Studios starting at 5:45 p.m. from Seuss Landing. If not, try to get to the park before 6:30. Universal Resort guests have a dedicated line from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the right side of the entrance.

2. Leave your costumes and masks at home. Universal won’t let you in with them.

3. Take only the necessities with you to make getting through security a snap: your phone, a credit card, tickets, ID and camera. You will be asked to remove everything — and we mean everything — from your pockets! Expect security to go through your bags thoroughly.

4. Eat dinner before you go. Lines for food (and alcohol) aren’t terribly long, but the lines to the houses and attractions are! Fuel up before you leave, and you can spend more time getting the daylights scared out of you.

5. If you want to avoid the street creatures, although we can’t imagine why you’d want to, they largely stick to the streets and leave guests on the sidewalks alone.

6. If you want to ride Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit or Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, do them first. Because they are close to the entrance and are the most popular attractions, they will see considerable traffic. If you don’t mind potentially riding separately from your party, the singles line on Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit will go much quicker than the regular queue.

The following video may give you some idea what to expect when the gates first open at the event in early evening around 6pm or so! Enjoy and make sure to check back for more HHN tips and tricks and HHN 24 news!

On select nights September 19 – November 1, your worst nightmares will take shape as Universal Studios Florida® theme park is transformed into the award-winning Halloween Horror Nights®. See if you can survive all-new haunted houses, spine-chilling street experiences, outrageous live shows, and more. There’s no better way to “end” your day at Universal Orlando® than with the winner of Amusement Today’s “Best Halloween Event” Golden Ticket award.

Halloween Horror Nights annually draws hundreds of thousands of horror fans from around the globe. Tony Timpone, Editor of Fangoria Magazine, said, “After visiting scream parks all across the U.S. for the last 20 years, I can easily say that Universal’s is the best in the business… Halloween Horror Nights is the ultimate Halloween experience.”

After rave reviews from fans, Universal Orlando Resort is bringing back AMC’s “The Walking Dead” to Halloween Horror Nights for an unprecedented third consecutive year. Horror-hungry fans will experience an all-new terrifying maze inspired by Season 4 of the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award®-winning television series.

This year’s bone-chilling maze will place guests at the heart of a harrowing journey to seek sanctuary at Terminus, an elusive destination that promises community for all. Mirroring the terror that befell the residents of the West Georgia Correctional Facility, now overrun by savage walkers, the experience will send guests fleeing from the fallen prison into unknown territory as they once again stage a desperate battle for survival against flesh-eating walkers and ruthless humans.

“The Walking Dead” is based on the graphic novel written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics. The series tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse.  It follows a group of survivors, led by sheriff Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home. “The Walking Dead” is the number-one show on television for adults 18-49.  AMC’s “The Walking Dead” returns for Season 5 this October.

“This has been an incredible collaboration and I am thrilled to be working once again with the creative teams at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood to bring the world of ‘The Walking Dead’ to our dedicated fans,” said Greg Nicotero, Executive Producer and Special Effect Makeup Supervisor for the series.  “I can’t wait for visitors to experience first-hand some of the iconic moments from Season 4 in what will be the biggest, most exciting and frightening ‘Walking Dead’ maze to date.”

Check out what our good friend UKHHN, who is the world’s number 1 HHN updater had to say about the news of The Walking Dead’s return this Halloween…

Universal Orlando’s maze will be the largest maze ever created at Halloween Horror Nights. It is literally double the experience and will feature more scareactors in one single haunted house than ever before. Guests will encounter iconic scenes from Season 4 of the hit show – beginning at the prison, fans will enter the cell block where the infection began, escape into the massive Big Spot location with a crashed helicopter ripping through its ceiling and journey to the dilapidated country club overrun with walkers. These and other incredibly immersive environments culminate to the maze’s finale taking you to the End of the Line – Terminus. This year’s maze will be an entirely new experience, featuring never-before-seen walkers and brand new scares.

“Bringing a horror property back for a third year in a row is always a decision that is carefully considered. Fortunately, The Walking Dead is unlike any horror brand around. Its appeal spreads across so many types of viewers. Hardcore and casual horror fans alike are watching week after week, and season 4 offered many new and unique environments and walkers,” said Michael Aiello, Creative Development Director  for Universal Orlando’s Entertainment team. “This year, we are taking this partnership to the next level, with a monstrous soundstage maze and a scope that is bigger and badder than anything we’ve ever done in the history of our event.”

Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” events have a more than 20-year history of creating incredibly entertaining, horrifying Halloween experiences that are consistently rated the nation’s best. The event features highly-themed, disturbingly real, haunted mazes based on everything from films to nightmares – and streets filled with hundreds of specially trained “scareactors.”

 

Though it’s only March, Universal Orlando is already looking ahead to their spookiest season, announcing the dates for Halloween Horror Nights 2014.

Now in its 24th year, Halloween Horror Nights will take place at Universal Studios Florida on 28 select nights from September 19 through November 1. (That number of nights sounds like a familiar horror film…)

Universal has also revealed Halloween Horror Nights 24 will feature 8 eight haunted houses, multiple street experiences, and two live shows.

 

Their newly-updated web site describes the event as follows:

Step right into some of the most pulse-pounding moments in horror history at Universal Orlando® Resort’s Halloween Horror Nights, the nation’s premier annual Halloween event. During the day, you can experience the fun and excitement of Universal Orlando’s two amazing theme parks. But on select nights from September 19 through November 1, 2014, the streets of Universal Studios Florida® theme park come alive with hordes of horrifying mutants, monsters and maniacs.

You’ll be immersed in the worlds of the biggest names in horror as you explore eight terrifying haunted houses, make your way through multiple street experiences where creatures lurk around every turn, enjoy outrageous live shows, and experience many of the park’s most exciting rides and attractions.

The site and their official Facebook page both have graphics featuring an eye, one terrified and one sinister (and moving):

But no further information on a theme or specific haunted house and scare zone details has been released.

The specific event nights are as follows:
September 19, 20, 25, 26, 27 and 28
October 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 29, 30 and 31
November 1

Universal notes that ticket packages and more information about the event will also be released soon.

 

Scientists say different versions of a single gene linked to feelings of anxiety can explain the way in which some people simply cannot watch horror movies, while others enjoy the suspense and the gore.

The findings may explain why it is that over the past 35 years people have had wildly different reactions to the classic horror film, The Exorcist.

While many screamed and some even fainted in cinemas at scenes of spinning heads and shaking beds, others simply laughed.

A particular variant of the ‘COMT’ gene affects a chemical in the brain that is linked to anxiety, it has been found.

People who have two copies of one version of the gene are more easily disturbed when viewing unpleasant pictures, the scientists discovered.

That version of the gene weakens the effect of a signalling chemical in the brain that helps control certain emotions.

The scientists found that those carrying two copies of it were significantly more startled by frightening images than others.

By contrast, those who had one copy of the gene and one copy of another version were able to keep their emotions in check far more readily.

The study, published today in the scientific journal Behavioural Neuroscience, also found that those with two copies of the latter gene were also able to keep a lid on their anxiety more easily.

Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany made the discovery after testing 96 women.

Then they showing them three different types of pictures – emotionally “pleasant” ones of smiling babies and cute animals, “neutral” ones of items like electric plugs or hairdryers, and “aversive” ones of weapons or injured victims.

The Exorcist was banned by some councils in Britain upon its release here in 1974, but broke box office records in the US to become the biggest selling horror movie of its day.

So what do you guys think? What does watching a scary movie do to you? Does it make you scared or make you laugh?

Do you enjoy the movie for the thrill or for the laughs? I know I have a little bit of both.. I love the suspense and then the laughter after you’ve been scared and I love being terrified! The creepier the better for me!

I am travelling to Orlando in two weeks for Universal Halloween Horror Nights 23 which will be my first trip to this event! I can’t wait to be in the middle of all the carnage but at the same time I feel a lot more on edge when I feel that I am in the middle of the movies!!

There is a huge difference in my eyes between watching a horror movie and then pretty much living several movies out in one night, but that the risk I am willing to take…while I will be scared during the walkthroughs(most likely screaming like a girl) when I emerge from the other end unharmed I will laugh for hours!

It’s the horror fan’s ultimate dream! Give me your thoughts on how horror movies effect you guys in the comments below!!

Enjoy!

 

This fall, Universal Orlando Resort will transform reality into a surreal fight for survival as the critically-acclaimed survival horror video game series “Resident Evil” becomes a haunted house at Halloween Horror Nights 23!

This completes this year’s lineup for Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 23, which will feature some of the most outrageously terrifying, highly-recognizable names in entertainment and pop culture. In addition to Resident Evil, the event will also include haunted houses based on AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Mexican urban legend La Llorona and critically acclaimed horror films “Evil Dead,” “An American Werewolf in London” and “The Cabin in the Woods.” Universal Orlando is also dedicating its entire Halloween Horror Nights street experience to “The Walking Dead” – making this the first time ever that all of the scare zones throughout the park will be themed after a hit television series.

For “Resident Evil,” Universal’s Entertainment team collaborated with the video game creators at Capcom to create a horrifyingly authentic haunted house based on some of the popular video games from the Resident Evil series. Guests will become desperate survivors inside the viral catastrophe, Raccoon City. As they journey through the city, they’ll encounter vicious characters from the games such as Lickers, bloodthirsty zombies, packs of Cerberuses and even Nemesis himself. Fans will be completely transported inside the video game realm – to the extent that one room in the haunted house will appear as if an action-packed fight scene is paused, as if the gamer has taken a quick break before returning to the horror of Raccoon City.

The “Resident Evil” franchise is now firmly established as a mainstay of contemporary culture with blockbuster live action movies, CG anime, manga, novels and numerous merchandising lines being produced alongside the videogame series. To date, the Resident Evil series of videogames has achieved global sales of more than 57 million units.

For a detailed listing of each experience featured at this year’s event, see below.

Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 23 will take place select nights from Sept. 20 to Nov. 2. Tickets and vacation packages are on sale now and can be purchased at Halloweenhorrornights.com/orlando. For details on special offers, please see below. Due to the event’s popularity, tickets for weekend nights are expected to sell out and should be purchased well in advance.

I really am so excited for this year’s event!! What do you guys think?

 

 

So there is still some stuff apparently not yet released about this years Halloween Horror Nights event in Orlando. Now what those announcements are is still unknown, but this isn’t going to stop us all from speculating now… is it?

Universal is saving one more house for this years event. The 8th house was not part of HHN reveal week but will be revealed shortly. The excitement is infecting the internet already and is spreading like a virus.

Apparently the date for this reveal is the 29th of August, which was posted on the Twitter of HHN Orlando but soon after deleted. This leaves everything some what up in the air about what is going on!

But will in be revealed sooner or later? In past years the website has been fully launched a month before the event is due to begin. Is this a new tactic employed by the masterminds at Universal Orlando? Or are we looking into this too much? Either way it’s pretty exciting if you ask me!!

The other thing people are mentioning is that in a recent tweet posted they have said ‘1 street experience has been revealed’ which has lots of people speculating whether there will be more to come? What do you think? Me personally I would like 1 or 2 more roaming hordes or something to that effect.

There has been many rumors about the house and what it will be based on.. and the one to come up more often than not is… Resident Evil!! And I sure hope this is true!! Here’s a few reasons why this may be the most likely idea for the final house/street experience.

re6park

Last year Halloween Horror Nights broke their own mold by introducing video games into the mix. They brought Silent Hill to life as a property and had many characters from the franchise roaming the streets too. This could mean more of this is on the way… for example Resi!

Universal Studios Japan used Resident Evil as a them for their Halloween Horror Nights and it was a massive success. So much so that they even created a shooting experience at the park based on it. So what does this have to do with Orlando you may ask? Well seen as it was such a major success in Japan and that the company still holds the license to use Resident Evil. Now we are not entirely sure that if Japan used it that it automatically means so can Orlando and we won’t get into that either… But it seems logical right?

Anyway until Universal officially reveal anything we really don’t know and that’s one of the best things about this event! The element of surprise throughout the build-up and event itself!

So what do you think? Leave you thoughts below!!

 

John Landis’ classic 1981 An American Werewolf in London is coming to life this year at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 23…

Beginning September 20, guests will step inside the film and experience a retelling of the horror classic – from the attack on the English moors to the hospital nightmares to witnessing the bone-crunching transformation of David from human to bloodthirsty werewolf. Guests will encounter David’s vicious werewolf form as he wreaks bloody chaos through London’s subway tunnel, Piccadilly Circus and more.

It’s terrific that guests will be able to actually experience some of the scarier scenes from the film. I had fun working with the Universal team to bring one of my more insane movies to life,” said Landis

“An American Werewolf in London is a must-see for any true horror fan,” adds Mike Aiello, Creative Director for Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights. “The haunted maze mirrors John Landis’ horrifying story and having him work with us in the creative process was really the only way this could authentically come to life.

The iconic film follows two American college students, Jack and David, as they backpack across the moors of England. On a misty, full-moon night, the men are attacked by a supernatural creature that kills Jack and taints David with its horrific curse. When the full moon rises again, the killing spree continues, and this time, the blood is on David’s hands.

The haunting story of ‘La Llorona,’ a beautiful girl named Maria from a poor village who desperately sought to win the affection of a rich nobleman. But this nobleman wanted nothing to do with Maria due to her having children, so as a plea to be his she drown her children. After this the nobleman completely shunned her. Overcome with anguish, she drowns herself in a bitter end.  According to legend, when she arrived at the gates of heaven she was asked where her children were? And was told she could not pass to the afterlife till they were found. Maria’s tormented and distressed spirit wanders the earth, eternally piercing the night with mournful cries, “My children!  Where are my children?” ― giving rise to her name, ‘La Llorona’ or ‘The Weeping Woman.’ She’s back and she is making the long journey from Hollywood to Orlando in order to find her children,  La Llorona’s frail, drenched body lurking throughout the dead of night will invariably elicit unwavering dread from the helpless village inhabitants or maze guests, as her presence signifies impending death.

la llorona hhn23

La Llorona first came to life in 2011 as a maze in Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood, based on the local legend of The Weeping Woman. The house was so popular that HHN brought it back for another year with ‘The Child Hunter’. This year it’s Orlando’s turn to face the wrath of the woman in white. Watch out, she could be coming to get you!!

Urban Legends: La Llorona will take the tale that was used in Hollywood and build it for Florida audiences who aren’t as familiar with the legend that is very popular in Mexican culture in California. La Llorona will join the likes of The Walking Dead,Evil Dead and The Cabin in the Woods for Halloween Horror Nights 23 in Universal Orlando. This is the first house of ‘Reveal Week’ for hhn. Every night this week at midnight another announcement will be made.

What’s next guys? Think I might know… so stay tuned and maybe I will have some hints out there before the next reveal!!
