Halloween Horror Nights blessed us on Halloween with an incredibly early first house announcement for HHN 32:
Unmasking the Horror: Halloween
This was my most anticipated house this year, and still ranked pretty high for me afterwards, but I was delighted that for our three house Unmasking the Horror Tour, we had Halloween as one of the three houses we would get to see with the lights on and enjoy all the extra details that we may have missed as we ran through during the event.Continue reading
Halloween Horror Nights 31
It had been six years since I’d been to my beloved Halloween Horror Nights. Six. Long. Years. I spent my time living through every photo and video I could find of the last few years events.
But finally, this year, I made it back. A week of Universal’s parks, two nights of Horror Nights, and one Unmasking the Horror Tour later, and I’m already eagerly awaiting announcements about next year’s event.Continue reading

So let’s take a minute to think about my most anticipated houses at this year’s event.Continue reading

Halloween Horror Nights 30 – First House Announced!
It has been a long time – entirely too long – since I’ve gotten to spend time at my beloved Universal Orlando. And, with that, a long time since I’ve gotten to attend my favorite Halloween event – Halloween Horror Nights.
Understandably, last year, everyone missed out, because of the pandemic. But HHN 30 looks like it may be happening – and with that, the first house announcement is here!Continue reading
A Curious Decade
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, and reflect on some of the most notable moments from the last decade:
Meeting Kevin Smith:
You can read the entire thing here, but without a doubt, Kevin Smith is one of the most significant things to happen to me in my entire life.
The Lady From the Black Lagoon
“In 1954, movie-going audiences were shocked and awed by Universal Studio’s groundbreaking horror film Creature from the Black Lagoon. As the years passed, the film gained a reputation as a landmark of the monster-movie genre. But only a small number of devotees were aware of the existence of Milicent Patrick who remains, to this day, the only woman to have designed a classic Universal monster.
That is, until film producer, horror-aficionado, and Black Lagoon acolyte, Mallory O’Meara begins to investigate rumors about the monster’s creator only to find more questions than answers. Through diligent research, O’Meara learns that the enigmatic artist led a rich and fascinating life that intersects with some of the largest figures of mid-century America, including William Randolph Hearst and Walt Disney.
The sudden, premature end to Patrick’s career is defined by circumstances that parallel—uncomfortably so—O’Meara’s own experiences in the film world, an industry that continues to be dominated by men. In a narrative with equal parts mystery and biography, The Lady from the Black Lagoon interweaves the lives of two women separated by decades but bound together by the tragedies and triumphs of working in Hollywood.”
Theme Park Shirt Storage
I have a chunk of my wardrobe that I literally only wear for trips to Universal and Disney. This is beneficial on one hand, because these shirts I wear for just those trips stay in decent condition and don’t get worn to death. But, unfortunately, that means I have a chunk of my closet taken up by shirts I very rarely use.
Guys. I need more closet space.
Stranger Things Returns to Halloween Horror Nights!
