I can appreciate an actor's hard work in any of those 2 houses, but unfortunately the 2 suffered due to some big negatives.I liked Dracula but I felt like they didn't have to work near as hard as we did. They had the most elaborate set and one of the best built sets to work with. Cleaver, and Saw especially had to work so much harder for our scares and in such revolutionary and groundbreaking houses. Oh, and Saw nor Cleaver had AC, and I can only think of 3 nights the whole year were our house was comfortable, I'm sure Cleaver was quite similar.
I just wish this would have been taken into consideration more when people would vote and when House of the Year and Week were taken into consideration. I definitely think Cleaver deserved HOTW over a certain house in a Sprung Tent and I'm still baffled as to how we were such a crowd favorite yet the fans seem to hate the both of us. My assumption is that everyone hates our location and there for goes into our houses negatively.
Agreed 100%. It was a great house in a year full of excellent ones. I have it at #4 for me, but that's not a knock at all. I loved all 8.I really liked Saw a lot also, more so than I expected to frankly. Although I'm not a huge fan of the series (first 2 are pretty good), I think they did an awesome job creating an atmosphere that felt like you were in the films. I love the narration of the Jigsaw guy as you are walking through the scenes, which matches the films perfectly. And the actors in the house easily had the most extreme jobs cut out for them. The only reason I did this house less than the others was simply the wait times.
