This notion that Leatherface/TCM being overused is hysterical. It was used ONCE in the history of Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando. Officially, anyways.
9 years ago.
Fast forward to HHN 25. Crowds have grown beyond measure compared to 2007. I'd say about 75% of the people that come through those gates didn't experience the house in 2007. So just cause fans have experienced something almost a decade ago, means that it should be shelfed forever? Where was the complaining last year about Body Collectors coming back? Or 25 Years? It was literally a rehash of everything we've already had?
Where was the hate when Freddy vs. Jason was announced?
I know people want to see riskier and less run of the mill IPs. But properties like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Walking Dead and Freddy vs. Jason bring the general public through the gates. It makes money. You need something that can appeal to the masses. Properties like this are what enable non-headliner properties to come to HHN. People can't seem to grasp that concept.
This type of complaining seems to have gotten out of hand now. You can't please everyone of course, but there's people who feel everything needs to be catered to them. It's getting tiresome.
Are you tired of HHN using IPs? Don't go.
I'm not big on horror but I will occasionally watch something that I've heard about (The Exorcist, Paranormal Activity, etc.)One thing I love about HHN is that it forces non horror fans to sit down and watch sometimes terrible but mostly great films. It's awesome to see you all discover something I've loved my entire life, wonderful feeling
Nope, love HHN, but I am not watching any of the horror films. Nightmare city for me I just don't enjoy watching them. But I love Halloween and the props. So I love looking at the houses from that angle.One thing I love about HHN is that it forces non horror fans to sit down and watch sometimes terrible but mostly great films.

i would like to just point out that they are releasing stuff very early so I wonder what surprises they have for us later on you know, just saying
Offensive to my sensibilities? :saywhat: Yeah... you definitely listened and absorbed everything I said before responding to my post.I'm just not exactly sure why using a property for a second time in the event's 26 year history is so offensive to your sensibilities.
Every response I've seen is a counter to your replies, just as you counter the choice of TCM. Because resistance is put up doesn't mean different opinions don't fly.Wow. Just when I thought this was the cool forums. Different opinions definitely don't fly around here.
