A poorly directed cast could have made the Rob Zombie zone an all time disappointment. There’s no such thing as a guaranteed success in the streets. There are too many variables.everyone gave me such a hard time for wanting iron maiden at the park. everyone got so mad when I said iron maiden would be a good property.....
and yeah after Rob zombie at hhn, I expected another metal zone of some kind. or metal vikings or metal warriors or something.
all that arguing over iron maiden and billie enlist and we got this lolololololol
From what I’ve seen, it feels like the performers have been given stifling instructions. They’re obviously supposed to be stoic and “intimidating,” but it sucks all the energy from the zone. There’s no violence or threat in their movement.
Frankly, if they simply coordinated scares where a spotlight or stage performer pointed out a target, and three or four foot performers rushed them all at once, it could add a lot of storytelling, movement, and tension to the zone. If you think about Hunger Games (the obvious inspiration), it was the wordless synchronization of the enforcers that made them scary. Right now, the zone is just really disorganized, performance-wise, and it’s hurting the zone.
