I don’t have TV so I was lost, but apparently there is a show on SyFy called Face Off that is awesome. The next scarezone for Orlando, Florida’s Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights is Face Off:
Details about the Orlando, Florida location is here.
Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights doesn’t have much up yet but they are making a haunted house / haunted attraction based on the show called, “Face Off: In the Flesh,”. This will be in the park’s House of Horrors and incorporate designs from the show’s last 6 seasons.
Season 7 of “Face Off” starts on Syfy this July 22. On Sept. 9th an episode will air in which the artists must create monsters based on movie posters. The winner will be featured in Halloween Horror Nights 2014.
Yay, Haunted Attraction season is almost here. :D
I have to admit that I had no idea that From Dusk ‘Till Dawn had been made into a TV series – but I don’t actually get TV in my apartment so I am no indicator. :) I am excited for haunt season…and glad that this isn’t another Walking Dead tie in. :)

Legends, a Haunting at Old Town is a new year-round haunted house near Orlando, Florida that replaced and greatly improved upon the old Grimm house in Old Town. For one night only, July 12, 2014 werewolves will roam the halls of Ashdown & Son’s Undertakers. We reviewed them when they first opened and you can read that review here.

Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights just announced that their first maze for 2014 is going to be another maze based off of AMC’s The Walking Dead. This is the third year that they have done a tie-in with this show.
If you’ve been reading my blog long enough you’ll know that you will get neither blind fannishness nor blind hatred from me.
I can’t lie. My initial reaction to this announcement was largely negative. I was briefly into The Walking Dead but I quickly tired of it sometime in the middle of season 3. Using it as a property for a haunted attraction always seemed to require minimal theming and no fancy costumes. That’s OK but it’s not really what I look for in innovation.
I’m sorry I am just damn tired of zombies. We get it. Boogity boogity.
Haunts have been taking a turn for the less creative overall in the past 2 years for various reasons. The Northeast was hit by a major hurricane which likely contributed to this. Other haunts really have no excuse.
That said, the execution of this maze is going to really be the crux of it all. The first year they did The Walking Dead we were left cold. The second year was pretty good. If they manage to impress me with a concept that I find to be simple and tired then that would be a huge amount of skill. I think their highly skilled people can do it. The question is: Will they?
I won’t know what I think until I go through it. Sure I am less excited about this but since I am a reasonable motherfucker with reasonable ladyparts I will check back with you after I’ve seen it and give you my honest opinion.
That said, I do hope that they don’t put The Walking Dead in every scarezone again. Because my god, man. It’s like the clouds are shitting Zombies and the ovaries of the clouds are on fire with boogity boogity.
