    yeah this is an excellent point as well, The girls should have been dancing while other actors should have been the ones scaring. the distraction would have worked perfectly since everyone would be paying attention to the dancing girls.

    Between this, Roanoke and Dracula they keep roating from the bottom 3. Not sure if anybody has seen videos of Hollywood but there maze feels more tailored to the show then ours. It only shines the last two rooms. I'll give them credit on having a lot of boo holes for the scare-actors.

    Correction: Not ironic at all. Thank goodness my memory fails at times and I confuse my bitey IPs. Yeesh...

    This never happened to me before, but it is getting to the point that I am getting kind of jealous of their event. First year that makes me feel like that

    Finally got to do this one yesterday, contrary to most I quite liked it. The budget for this one probably was not too high, and except for the front and the final bar scene there is not that much set wise, but I actually loved the resulting minimalism. Also contrary to the opinion of most, I loved the way the female vampires were used, to have them behind curtain and have shadow effects, then to have them come out etc, had a real gothic spirit to it if you ask me.

    After a second run tonight, I still stand by this being the worst house. It was even worse on the 2nd run because I knew what to expect and there wasn't even an element of surprise to it.

    Funny because I actually had a good run though tonight. Ronoake keeps moving down in my book so it's a close call for worst house.

    Did it twice, loved it twice ... I just really love the minimalism of it, it also makes the finale stand out more, it is just such a turn of events ...

    Roanoke is at least gory and now the OU guys got me yelling MEAT throughout the whole house which makes it fun for me.

    Gore at HHN has never impressed me because for me there is nothing really impressive about rubber bodies painted red... I really don't want to be a hater but sometimes it can look cheesy.

    You know what house really impressed me? (And it had NO gore at all) Gothic. that is what you would call Impressive in my book. amazing costumes, great scares. the flying actor at the end, That's what amazes me about the event. Animatronics, puppets and special effects to me are a lot nicer than rubber bodies lol :cheers:
    I don't want to hate on the house I swear. Im just talking about Gore at the event in general. Without a great theme it becomes kind of lame to be honest. I know a lot of people have mentioned the gore and how awesome it is, but to me I don't really get it. AVP and the dolls house had much more impressive stuff.

    It is very toned down gore, especially if you have seen a lot of gore-filled horror ...

    Now that I think about it I've never been grossed out by any gore in a HHN house (even the spine rip). The stuff that gets me are the smells and masks in some cases (dollhouse has both in full force)

    I think what it also is, is that in movies the gore is animated, it is alive, they can't really have that in a haunt ...

    yes, same here, Smells are a lot stronger in getting a reaction out of me as well, specially burnt flesh or gross smells. I totally agree.
    As for masks I absolutely agree as well, I've never been scared of people in make up either. but scary masks have given me some of the biggest scares in all these years.
