Review: Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood (2016)

Ahhhhh – another year and another trip to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood!  When the news broke about the lineup of mazes this year, people were in a bit of a frenzy, and for good reason because a lot of your favorite horror icons were finally going to be on the same bill!  I’m talking Freddy, Jason, Michael, Leatherface, Krampus…..ok, maybe Krampus isn’t a horror icon, but we’ll get to him later on in the review.  The question is, would it all be worth it?  And would HHN jack the prices up even more this year?  Yes to both of those questions!  So let’s go from worst to first and get it going…..    Continue reading

Anticipation Alert: ‘The Exorcist’ Maze At Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights 2016!

As a frequent goer to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood each year, there’s always one maze that I have at the top of my wish list:  The Exorcist.  And each year I’m disappointed, as it’s never announced that Regan and her split pea soup will be blessing us with their presence in maze form.  Until now!


Awwwww yeah!  I can already hear the ‘Tubular Bells’ theme music now.  All I keep saying to myself after this was announced yesterday is “Please don’t fuck this up HHH, please don’t fuck this up!”  But yes, it’s out there that The Exorcist will become a maze at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at both the Hollywood and Orlando locations.  And Orlando gets a Texas Chainsaw Massacre maze too, so they’re 2 for 2 so far.

One thing that I love about their mazes is the incredible detail that’s put into them, so expect to see a lot of great visuals and possibly smell some green vomit as well.  I would say it’s a safe bet that we’ll get a spinning head or two in addition to everything else. Maybe a bloody crucifix thrown in for good measure?  We shall see.  Look for Universal to announce more mazes in the coming months (this was announced pretty early), and if you go this year then I would highly suggest buying Front Of The Line passes!
