Here you are!

I figured I'd make it it's own thread for posterity's sake. Solutions are in the spoilers and thanks for playing.

Clue Set 1 – “Babylegs” (Announced Dead Exposure: Patient Zero/Codename Zero)
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S01E08/q36gFUxzTwP3g-kcTBbU85FfoaA=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S01E08/E-iboRmcdE_CmKZMaK3OLFWY7U0=.gif
Rule – Word Exchange
Solution – In Part 1, the word “Detective” is replaced by the word “Cop.” A Detective is similar to a Private Investigator. Boris Schuster, the protagonists of Dead Exposure in 2008 was a PI. In Part 2, “Daddy Legs” replaces “Regular Legs” to key on a replaced word.
Clue Set 2 – “Mind Blowers” (Announced Trick R Treat/Codename Dynamite)
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S03E08/wPNxfU_TWkVEtOhez8ka_gwO7GU=.gif
Rule – Word count
Solution – Counting the words in each line of the clue gives you 4-2-2. This translates to a time of 4 minutes, 22 seconds (it’s the only option in a 30 minute show). At that time mark in the Rick and Morty episode “Morty’s Mind Blowers,” Rick states “They don't all have titles, though. It's not a "Simpsons" Halloween special, more like a clip show made of clips you never saw!”

The movie Trick R Treat, as an anthology, is ‘like a clip show,’ dedicated to Halloween.
Clue Set 3 – “Dammit Jerry” (Announced as Carnival Graveyard: Rust in Pieces/Codename Rag-tag)
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S02E06/pZUsQfuhnqxF7JO7l010rSOldas=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S01E07/A1YZKl_tTWPNlxcFIbhFD_pxlq0=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S03E05/mSjhEL39unrtvjFFhjTD2bf3Yw8=.gif
Rule – Elements of Story
Solution – The elements of story are: Plot, Character, Setting, and Theme. The gifs present the first three things in that order (“theme” is not traditionally considered in a haunted house). The Plot is to escape (expressed in the gif). The second gif alludes to the “Character” – The “easy target” Rick and Jerry reference in the episode is the Insane Clown Posse. The third gif is, literally, a destroyed carnival ride (the Whirly Dirly). In the house, we are escaping insane “clowns” (carnies, specifically) through a destroyed carnival.
Clue Set 4 – “Saving Rick” (Spoiled by Legacy as Poltergeist/Codename Coach)
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S03E01/43-0myzkor8MU6r9QG0fIDh-oZ4=.gif
Rule – Context
Solution – This one… should be pretty obvious. The context of the scene is summer, digging up a Rick’s decaying corpse from the back yard (during a storm) so she can open a portal to save a family member. In Poltergeist, corpses are found in the backyard and they open a portal to save a family member.
Clue Set 5 – “Pink” (Spoiled by Legacy as Scary Tales: Deadly Ever After/Codename Poison)
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S03E09/q2MRHgCy4sv2x_QVwbaJKGwXqnc=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S03E09/UmaCc-rDTwLqBm4QzY5-cxOJmjI=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S03E09/o2KhY4SN0_O_NK8aNfE_osgrebo=.gif
Rule – Analogy
Solution – All the dialogue in this series is irrelevant. They’re red herrings, and the clues more story-centric (I got the story for this house, but not the title, which made it a bit difficult). It also requires some understanding of the episode. Froopy Land is an “imaginary” place from Beth’s (Rick’s daughter) childhood. Entry into this land is through a rainbow portal, and Froopy Land is now ruled by “King Tommy” a childhood friend of Beth that has been trapped there for decades (like the Wizard). During the episode, Beth returns and ends up killing the denizens of Froopy Land and overthrowing Tommy.

It’s not Oz. Froopy Land is not Oz. But this house features a Wicked Witch (Beth) “breaking” the rainbow barrier and killing everyone who lives there. So, it’s an analogy.
Clue Set 6 – “Pickle” (Announced as Seeds of Extinction/Codename Meteor)
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S03E03/ku5PBVj7j3nDcsYp1FKI4D9uWuc=.gif
Rule – None
Solution – In the clue, Rick is a pickle. More specifically a living cucumber, that ends up killing everyone. And a cucumber is a type of plant. And in this house, the plants are killing everybody.
Clue Set 7 – “Nihilism” (Announced as Horrors of Blumhouse/Codename Surprise!)
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S02E07/HSUJbtUoZNvLfxrjwD2dY-SG3AY=.gif
Rule – Sleight
Solution – ***Sigh*** I’m a little off on this one. I didn’t realize First Purge would be part of the house. Regardless, the rule “Sleight” (which was not intentionally a Blumhouse reference) is about the fact that the gif itself has nothing to do with the clue. I posted the same gif (with the same text) every day at the same time for a week. Essentially, resetting the days like in Happy Death Day.
Clue Set 8 – “Ship” (Announced Slaughter Sinema/Codename Snacks)
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S03E02/D_K2Pse2xzlS7e8w7YNl184z5LA=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S02E05/Kcxn8Jcnjvtm6oN9RhnoS5RIDUM=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S01E02/Dr9ZHJH9EuF-sYAyAj3KXCv_MZg=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S01E08/9l62Ckep9hLuOV8D0gDxOEBByx4=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S01E07/UARQPlIiNDCCO8mHDAruktwR8_I=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S03E05/w4gq0wwZjhWDHBeG88FR_EjoPg0=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S01E11/a9xgFpR1Y9ssnXhAGZqq2mbsWCg=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S01E03/1PJb-uUg9yA_EZasKd37Ra7MYY4=.gif
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S02E02/4mHot7mQPIXy5uJTfoLVh8znsr0=.gif
Rule – Disarray
Solution – There’s a lot of gifs for this because, ostensibly, it’s a mash-up (9 total gifs for 9 scenes). Gifs 1 & 3-8 are all movie parodies/references specific to sci-fi or horror films (schlock staples). Gif number 2 is a bit of a cheat, as it indirectly relates to a scene in the house. In Gif 9 (Grandpa and the Government), the words don’t matter. The ship itself has driven into the facility, just like you would a drive-in.
Clue Set 9 – “Crow” (Spoiled by Hilton Hotels as Halloween 4/Codename “Feature”)
https://masterofallscience.com/video/S02E02/b4MiiVti6-jstB4bpKBT6qyi22s=.gif
Rule – Dig
Solution – The clue name, is a reference to “Eating crow.” The “destination” in the clue isn’t a place, it’s a person named Krombolulos Michael. And who is Krombopulos Michael? He’s an assassin who famously said, “I have no code of ethics. I will kill anyone, anywhere. Children, animals, old people, doesn’t matter. I just love killing.”

Legacy, thank you for making the speculation so much fun this year. We're not going back to the days of an interactive website, but thanks to you (and to the creative/marketing team for making individual announcement vids for the originals, as well as the postcards for DE2), it felt very close.

The past few months have had some bumps for me personally, and these clues have kept me going. :)

My pleasure.

I lucked into more info than I have ever gotten before. Not sure I'll ever get it again. Might as well have fun with it.

I have to second @OhHaiInternet95 sentiments here, I don't know enough about the genre to play but following along was fun.
Thanks @Legacy , hope to do it again next year. This has been a good marketing year, and even more so contrasted with last year.

As a R&M fan, I loved coming here to check out the guessing game going on and the convos are eventually what made me register. Thanks for all the fun you bring to the forum Legacy!

:lol:

IF I get a similar amount of info (and that's a colossal if), I might.
