    If there’s only a few IPs next year, does that mean we’re getting some new originals, or mostly sequels/mash ups a la 25? Word of another Scarecrow house makes me think it’s the latter.

    I know IT has been shot down a lot due to Warner Bros' event.. but they didn't have it this year, and who knows if they'll have it in 2020.

    Money talks, Warner Bros likes money, and Universal has a lot of money. IT would be a major draw, and I think Uni can make it happen.

    Dunno. And probably won’t know with any certainty until March at the earliest (and possibly as late as June).

    There’s rarely any talk about non-IP houses before then. If there is, it’s in hand-wavy, big picture terms that don’t really say anything (for example, Body Collectors x Shadybrook was originally leaked as “Blizzard house.”

    Or it says a lot about what leakers share.

    That’s why I trust but verify, either through other sources or until I get evidence. Besides, if you’re pulling from 5-6 different sources, it becomes much harder to track.

    *waves at A&D*

    It’s all in good fun, BTW. I’m available for freelance work, and the associated NDA. ;)

    I honestly can't see another Monsters house given we just had one. If the Monsters are to reappear, I would suspect them to be within an anniversary house or maybe even part of a scarezone, at most.

    I heard Wolfman v Frankenstein: Dawn of Justice (lmao) was actually pretty good over at Hollywood. Perhaps we can see that or something similar if they want the Monsters to come back?

    I would actually love a Universal Monsters scarezone if I'm being honest.

    Can’t wait for the scene where they realize their mothers have the same name. :)

    Certainly, anything is possible. I also heard it was received quite well over there. The rumor of only 2-3 IPs suggests that Universal wants to bring only heavy-hitting properties that draw in attention and massive crowds, though.

    The Monster houses are different as they can tug the lines of IP/Original. Unless the house is directly related to a movie, a monster house is an original with IP characters.

    I'd be all for a Monsters scare zone. Hollywood would be a great spot for it.

    Can I offer some feedback on this? As a lurking newbie who wants to follow your rules, it's not clear where the other stuff belongs.

    Scrolling on the main forum page to the "Halloween Horror Nights - Orlando" forum then to the following page. The General forum is waaaaaaaay at the bottom of the screen out of site. If that could be pinned closer to the top and made more visible against the 29/30 forums that would help getting the message out and would likely cause you to not have to moderate as much.

    Monsters this year was fully considered an IP. We would've had an even split if it was considered an original.

    Eh. I love the Monsters, but they literally just did it for the last anniversary year in 25. Monster house? Sure. Zone? Meh.

    I can adjust the thread accordingly.

    Basically, we're looking for realistic expectations to add to the discussion and trying to avoid people throwing any scary movie into it because "scary movie". Theoretically, any scary movie is possible unless there is some hang-up with rights, costs, translation, etc.. so that adds nothing to the topic. With Wish Lists, that opens the door to go down that road, which is why we started the Wish List thread for each coast.

    Because marketing? Yeah, they are still the Monsters and should be marketed. That doesn't mean it's outright an IP. Everything about the house was an original creation of A&D. As I said, it blurs the line between original and IP.

    Yes I know All Nite Die-In: Double Feature existed, I was more talking a full blown zone around just them, not also Chucky and Jason and Freddy and the like. But fair enough. I see y'all's point. I loved Double Feature, nothing against it.

    I would point out that a Monsters SZ would be the biggest selfie zone of all time and therefore the worst nightmare of some of the HHN faithful, but I don't believe that genie is going back in the bottle.
