    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.

    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".

    Haven't seen the movie yet but it looks like a lot of good potential for a house, can't wait.

    I really hope that a good chunk of the house has Puppets..but I wouldn't be shocked if the Gingerbread men are Screen based.

    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?

    I'd imagine the Krampus could be Predator size.

    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.

    I saw this movie when it came out and the entire time I was thinking "this could so easily become an HHN house." Add me to the list of people pumped for this one!
