He's a coming - We'll post article and picture when Universal releases their stuff officially.

Discuss.
I'm surprised that this thread is up before the REAL announcement of it..

But personally, I am SO excited about this house; on both coasts for a few reasons.

  • It's the first IP that Mike and Murdy get to work with the amazing Michael Doughtry (from Trick r Treat fame).
  • The Creature Designs from Weta should make this maze above anything as hopefully a great use with Puppets
  • It's that one IP that makes sense. Krampus, for a lack of better words; is that one IP that we've all been hoping would make it for both coasts, but for different reasons. USH, specifically; as we've had the amazing Dark Christmas scarezone in the past; and that a lot of people have wanted to see it implemented as a House/Maze in some sort of manner (regardless if it's Krampus or Not). And for Orlando, you guys have wanted to see how Mike and the crew would implement the work that John and Chris done extremely well, as either by the means of a house and/or Scarezone.
I honestly can't wait to see what Mike and John do with the IP; as if it's anything like Dark Christmas from USH, it's going to be fun.

I can honestly say that I haven't seen the movie, but now I must!

If anything, watch it for the designs of the creature, and the architecture. It's really amazing, and it works so well with a Horror Nights type maze I can't really describe it.

Btw, Hollywoods codename for Krampus is apparently "Lux".

This is the first announcement for this year's HHN that has honestly excited me.

It better be cold... ;)

My only other concern is how they're going to replicate those gingerbread men.
I'm definitely anxious to see how they pull off Krampus too. I wonder just how large he's going to be?

:horse:

I would imagine Krampus will be this year's HHN Bear. Similar in size at least. They'd really only need two actors (one per cast) if they save the full reveal for the end.
