    This looks awesome. Love the key art. Sounds like the music should lean in the right direction, too.

    This maze, is going to be something else.

    I was told of the possibility of it, back in the later half of 2017. And when I got more and more rumblings of it, it seemed like it was finally happening.

    The Universal Classic Monsters; are landmark for the Universal Pictures catalog. They house so many characters and stories to be told, from The Creature to Dracula. From The Phantom to The Wolfman. So many of these characters have made history in many ways, even small. And the fact that Murdy is finally doing this, makes me root and support this maze completely.

    I was told of Slash in July, and was..albeit dissapointed. But, if the music from the trailer gives any indication; it excites me to no end of a possibly different take on what Slash typically does.

    I am so excited to see the final product, especially from what Murdy spoke of last night; as he really seemed to be scared about this, in so many ways than one.

    This is pretty cool. A part of me was kinda hoping it would be more of a straightforward classical take on UCM, but that’s just me nitpicking really. If they had to tie it in with a musician, I’m glad it’s Slash (I’d take him over gross dubstep any day).

    Anyone think we might get the Creature from the Black Lagoon/ Invisible Man since they mention "others?"

    In the IU article, they actually confirmed The Invisible Man

    If they have the Invisible Man, I'd imagine they'd feature the Creature.

    I just can't wait to see those two redesigned. That bumps up my excitement even more.

    As long as it has the 9 "main ones", I'm good with that, and it seems it most likely does.

    I know this sounds stupid to say now, but I'm so happy it's not just Dracula, Frankenstein and Wolfman! From the key art and even the trailer, it seemed like it would just be those three.

    Interesting that they mention the Phantoms going to be in the maze considering he and the Hunchback got their own scarezone, Kind of makes me sad we wont see all the monsters in the scarezone, but oh well.

    Yeah I'm curious if anyone on this forum knows how they were able to use him in the House of Horrors? I understand mask/makeup wise he's more terrifying to look at than a live actor Dracula, but since he's not theirs.

    I believe in the U.S. Nosferatu is in public domain, so maybe that's it.

    It's on youtube legally, so I'm pretty sure that's it.

    Though I think they referenced the movie in Orlando's version? I could definitely see a version of Nosferatu in the maze.

    Side note: I want to see what the interiors look like so bad. Gothic castle? German expressionism?

    I think that the part with frankenstein in the trailer was filmed in the actual maze (thats my theory anyways)
