    while it doesn’t mean it isn’t it coming, it also doesn’t point in that direction either.

    I hated the idea when it first popped up, mainly because we already had KKFOS and ST. But when I saw "white whale" and "most technologically advanced house ever," I admittedly bought into the hype. I have no idea what I was thinking. I hope Murdy being friends with Jason Reitman doesn't mean anything--someone mentioned he attended the event on at least one coast?

    Alright I think the treatment is referring to Hellraiser... I mean, why not? Single environment, hard to pull off.

    I did the same thing! I definitely wanted it to be good, so I kinda talked myself into it for a little bit there, but uggghhhh was it just bad.

    IDK, we don’t need to relitigate this stuff, it isn’t coming back next year so no need to harp on it in a 2020 thread. Let’s just hope there’s no children’s programming next year. Looking at you, Beetlejuice.

    (Actually I think a Beetlejuice maze might be okay, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.)

    I have actually been thinking about what property Murdy is talking about with it being a challenge and although some people don't think it's coming I do think it could possibly be Beetlejuice.
    It's tricky to do a property that is very goofy/comedy heavy versus straight up horror. Visually it's a lot harder as well as everything has a distinct look to it.

    There also is a heavy mix of different effects and stuff versus actual actors. For right now I'm at least thinking Beetlejuice.

    You guys think the tricky I.P. might be The Thing? Like, there's tons of effects they´ll have to use

    When I hear difficult, my mind goes to something with limited locations. Beetlejuice has a lot of content and locations, but something that's more psychological (ex. Hereditary, Get Out, etc) would offer a very interesting design problem. I could definitely see Get Out coming, with the catalyst being Peele, but John's been very vocal about the lack of content.
    (Also, not on topic, but Grammarly works on IU if you have the chrome extension)

    If Beetlejuice does come to the event I 100% believe that it will have the exact same problems as the Ghostbusters maze, but IDK :tease:

    The main difference I see with Beetlejuice is that the visual design is much more distinct than GB, barely any of the environments are normal places, unlike GB where a majority are.

    The humor in Beetlejuice is also much different than Ghostbusters. It’s darker and much more cynical, even if the approach tends to be goofy and cartoonish. I don’t think it’s lighthearted in the same way as Ghostbusters. There’s a macabre tone in the movie that could, with the right calibration, fit a HHN lineup, but it all depends. It could easily be Ghostbusters 2.0, or it could be more along the lines of Krampus, just in terms of presence and atmosphere.

    I'm wondering since Holidayz did get #2 for GSAT if they would consider doing a Spinoff Maze on one of the Holidays.

    I feel as though it would most likely either be Thanksgiving or Christmas (Dark Christmas maze finally). But I would personally pick Easter which had my favorite scene of Holidayz.

    Dark Christmas would be most monetarily practical, but easter and Halloween would be my preferred ones. Maybe a sequel based on a Mexican holiday (day of the dead, etc.)?

    A tidbit about this that got me a little too excited and is almost definitely wrong, that's the coat of arms of Francis Patrick Keough, who was the Bishop of Providence from 1934-1947, it just so happens that Providence is also the birthplace of HP Lovecraft.
