It’s been a difficult month since the end of our 2nd season, and we’re back to kick off Season 3! Both our hosts moved, and one had a bout with Covid. Of course, this left us eager to return to our favorite topic. Halloween Horror Nights 2023 kicked off a couple of weeks ago, but we’ve done a good job of avoiding it (well, AJ went for a low-key night opening weekend but only went for 2 houses). Even so, consider this our 2023 Halloween Horror Nights Final Preview episode.
Here we are with our Hype Lists mere hours before our first HHN Night. Will we accurately predict where each of our houses will rank? Will the houses make us change our opinion on The Exorcist: Believer or Chucky? Can Dueling Dragons live up to our lofty goals as fans of the ride? Can Oddfellow breakthrough as a new icon? Halloween Horror Nights 2023 has an incredible mix of high-concept IP (The Last of Us and Stranger Things) as well as new stories to tell (Blood Moon: Dark Offerings, The Darkest Deals).
We discuss all 10 houses, all 5 scarezones, and a handful of the extras at the event. We will be back this weekend with our ranking of the houses and scarezones and be back in the next few weeks with episodes on Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors, Prince of Darkness, and more!
