HOUSE ANNOUNCEMENT: ASH VS EVIL DEAD AT HHN 2017

Hail to the Chin! Today Universal has blessed us with a form of something we’ve been asking for since they started using IPs at HHN. We’ll finally be able to start lollygagging with our favorite chainsaw for hand horror icon, Ash Williams. Ash vs Evil Dead, the television continuation of the Evil Dead on Starz network, currently going on it’s third season, will become a haunted maze at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Ash at Halloween Horror Nights, you may remember a small Army of Darkness scene in the Silver Screams maze back in 2009.

I’m sure we’ll get a ton of memorable scenes and if we are lucky enough, we’ll get a chance to see Ash and the legendary Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale save us from the Necronomicon and a bunch of deadites! For the most part I expected this house to happen last year and even put out a tweet.

I’m a big fan of the show and @GroovyBruce so naturally the first thing I did was check his schedule on his website to see what the possible dates for a surprise visit would be and sure enough he’s free for opening night!

Press release to follow:
ORLANDO, Fla., UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (July 27, 2017) – For the first time ever, the critically-acclaimed television series “Ash vs Evil Dead” from Starz, a Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) company, will summon Deadites to a new haunted maze at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood, beginning September 15.

The “Ash vs Evil Dead” maze will transport guests into the town of Elk Grove, Mich., where they will encounter Deadites – people or objects possessed by evil demons – that have been unwittingly unleashed by Ash Williams – again. Throughout the maze, guests will come face-to-face with disturbing characters and iconic comedic and gory scenes from seasons 1 and 2 as they desperately try to escape all things evil…before it’s too late.

The STARZ Original Series “Ash vs Evil Dead” is a follow-up to the original The Evil Dead movie, which has long been regarded as a cult classic since its debut in 1981. Starring Bruce Campbell, who reprises his role as “Ash Williams,” the series has amassed a huge fan base and was renewed for a third season by STARZ. Catch up on the STARZ APP.

Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando and Hollywood to become victims of their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.

Additional details about Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” will be revealed soon. For more information about Halloween Horror Nights at either Universal Orlando Resort or Universal Studios Hollywood, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.

  • Eric you

    pardon my dust and cobwebs i am sharpening my knife collection in the dark prepare for my return the soul collectors now need to use the life energy of our victims to summon our dark master or mistress be ready for its return.

  • Eric you

    i really hope we get more house reveals like our last remaining intellectual properties like jigsaw and mashup of paranormal activity, purge, and insidious original houses like soul harvesting, angels versus demons, urban legends of blank eyed children or something, and bayou of blood scare zones i heard might be purge or something doomsday related, 50’s science fiction or alien invasion, festival of the dead, trick or treat or Halloween traditions, and our icon scare zone or something centered on this years main theme overall then our shows are bill and ted and academy of villains or something completely new that will center on this years theme of soul collecting and death.

  • Eric you

    i also wonder how each intellectual property, original house, scare zone, and our shows will tie in this year also i looked at the soul collectors page in down for a while so something will happen soon could this years mascots be either the iniquitous or lady death i want a icon this year or least at the opening moment we might hear a familiar voice beckon us in could also still be the caretaker Albert Cain and his daughter Cindy or even something like a grim reaper or death itself will come i am terrified of who is leading this years event. i hope we have some tweets, Facebook posts, and more social media invites or short glimpses looks like we have six unlocked boxes this year could the elite soul collectors be divided into battling factions with legendary truth also be involved somewhere the grim reaper is somehow brought to our world through collecting mortal souls for strengthening his dark and evil powers. we could also see a sacrifice like moment in this years icon scare zone or somewhere this year could be quite epic.

  • Eric you

    universal studios better do some landscaping putting in props around mid august in both Orlando and Hollywood so some guests could see some of it and others will be hidden for a while til opening night or employee preview days plus open up this year big main gift shop/ museum quality exhibit so we can see this years merchandise and reveal a fuller advertisement then the previous one with not blurred images.

  • Eric you

    i hope during midsummer scream here in California and scare la here in California we get something exclusive or shared with both Orlando and Hollywood if not august 3 or august 4 i am going on vacation until august 7 so long farewell goodbye then on august 8 i will check out what i have been missing hopefully i get all the houses, scare zones, shows, and whatever else i missed for this Halloween horror nights i was also told by Hollywood will have eight houses, their own brand new original scare zones, a brand new show, and a brand new terror tram layover of its world famous studio tour Hollywood will also bring back go go dancers at the front gate scare zone which will also have their opening ceremonies involving a fire based special effect or something.

  • Eric you

    i wonder if we get another shared reveal of something today we have six days or less until our big reveal soon this year is going to be legendary and the most epic one but our icon still has not shown his or hers face so lets wait just a little while longer.

  • Eric you

    so we still have about six days or less to collect more souls then the clocks will strike zero i wonder what surprise will occur at august 3 then something a hint is going beyond the veil so what could it mean.

  • Eric you

    i also think some kind of cyclops would also fit somewhere this year or some kind of fire type effect will be used in one of the scare zones and our second show will have fire effects and something that pumpkins in a scare zone or one of the original houses our icon could be a necromancer or grim reaper style figure a unique backstory will be tied in the grim reaper or necromancer will have various other soul collectors to serve him or her.

  • Eric you

    there was a couple of original icons that may fit in future events like the puppet master, the undertaker, the high priest, doctor dementia, the crone of the forest, the daughter of the UN dead, the maiden of the opera, the minister of evil Jonah goodwill and lady death could be introduced kind of this year as the main soul collectors others who can be reused is Eddie and Cindy who could also be part of the soul collectors.

  • Eric you

    i also think they could reuse bloody Mary and the Terra queen kind of now as soul collectors Mary would be reused as lady death now mixed with a theme of candles, roses, and skeletons and that odd watery effect is kind of like a new mirror or fear’s lantern or something.

  • Eric you

    after today it will be five days til all will be revealed on august 3 around 11 am PST i will love to hear the purge siren in Orlando only just one scare zone purge election year based with some kind of original characters and a mini show but some scare zones could also have mini show like moments that interact with the guests if icon scare zone is correct or festival of the dead could have march of the dead like Singapore with a mini parade ending with a resurrection or exorcism type show that would be our second show or just a mini show each night we a opening ceremony near the gates or bringing back the front gate video screen like in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 where our icon comes to reap our souls and speak to us or very interesting media invites personalized for each guest if you signed up as a soul collector just like in that short promo of the soul collectors video. but let us wait just a while longer who knows what kind of diabolical plans the creators of this years event in Orlando and Hollywood have in mind.

  • Eric you

    the diabolical plans will come to life in just 49 days or 48 days we will have something quite soon at august 3 as well who or what will emerge at 11 am that day here is a backstory meet Joseph Blackwell he is my original icon character he is a man cursed to wander the earth he was in ancient times Cain who slaughtered Abel in this world he is part demon making him immortal he has changed his name to fit in with various time periods he must kill lots of people to start the apocalypse and unleash hell itself onto the world.

  • Eric you

    Joseph Blackwell is also known as death and the grim reaper he harvest souls when people are about to die now here at Halloween horror nights 27 in Orlando Florida he is after the living instead he has gather various abominations from hell along with him to kill the living and claim their souls.

  • Eric you

    well i have a idea if we do not have a icon how about i do a evil black mass and summon a demon to possess mike and john the creative directors of the events in Hollywood California and Orlando Florida that way we get something from them.

  • Eric you

    we have five days or less til all could possibly be revealed and we will also might hear some creepy messages from the elite soul collectors or our icon or primary theme backstories to the original houses, scare zones, and our second show which is either academy of villains or our icons show hmm still waiting for something like a grim reaper or lady death to reveal itself due hints of reaping and soul collecting or maybe surprise caretaker Albert Cain and Cindy comes back to host this years event.

  • Eric you

    i think a special question and answer session on Facebook, twitter, Instagram and other official accounts is needed once again or we see hear dark messages open up where the locked boxes each contain a video clip that cryptically hints this years central backstory to tie in the houses , scare zones, and other surprises on august 3 11 am all will be revealed.

  • Eric you

    the countdown is now four days 23 hours and 38 minutes left to all could be revealed at august 3 11 am beware something vile is about to emerge from hell itself i wonder who or what these beings are going to be.

  • Eric you

    now down to four days 19 hours and 33 min i wonder how many souls need to be collect to fuel the darkness within all of us we are legion we are many we are the soul collectors we reap for our dark masters whoever it is this year.

  • Eric you

    stay tuned tomorrow at 130 pm PST Hollywood will have something exclusive and stay tuned on Aug 3 11 am PST for Orlando reveal of original scare zones and houses stay tuned at 3 pm to 4 pm on August 5 for a Hollywood will reveal a exclusive and their full ticket prices plus their website will be updated with their scare zones and other houses plus the brand new terror tram yet to be revealed and their own exclusive brand new show yet to be revealed.
