    [Special Report] "The Purge: Fear The Night" Is Easily One Of The Best Halloween Attractions Of The Year -

    My friends and I were separated and told to enter the maze alone – timed out from each other by about 30 seconds – and from those initial first steps into absolute darkness I could tell I was in for something different. Since the surprise factor is part of the fun, I’m not going to spoil the attraction by providing a beat-by-beat breakdown of the evening. What I will say is that the performances are great and you’re guided through the building with an incredible sense of urgency. You’re positioned as a delegate for the New Founding Fathers and are on the run from “Constitutionalists.” The pacing of this is great, it’s often breakneck but there are also plenty of chances for you to slow down a bit and become an active participant and problem solver in your environment. You might rejoin your group only to be pulled away from it in the middle of a hallway – you never know. And while gore is never the focus conceptually, there’s no shortage of that either.

    Every room is different, from hospital environments to apartments to wide open fields (on a set, of course). You never know where you’re going next and you can’t predict just how you’ll be involved in the action. You might be asked to fish through water to find something, you may be asked to kill somebody (for the peanut gallery – please don’t take that literally). The experience runs just the right amount of time – so many “mazes” are frustratingly short, this one is long without ever overstaying its welcome. And, at the end, you’re allowed into the perfect environment to unwind from the intensity and gather your thoughts (and perhaps wait for your friends who were “abducted”).

    If you’re looking for a great night out (and are over 18) you should definitely hit this up. Get tickets here and plan an evening around it. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the area to help justify the cost of downtown parking… and you just might need that drink afterwards.

    annnnnnnnnnnnnd it hasn't changed much. I guarantee the Hanging is STILL using jokes you saw 10 years ago. I do it more out of obligation/tradition more than anything else these days. If they have a slider show(hard to find...I think you have to follow the old school guys on twitter to find it) I HIGHLY reccomend it. Great energy and some sincerely entertaining ART...it really is art what they do. I wish the general malaise that seniority creates(lots of haunters don't try so much anymore) could be removed. Since Universal came back it just shows how complacent Knotts has become.

    Event Report: A Look Inside Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare | Shock Till You Drop

    When asked if there would be the potential of taking the event on the road, he said, "There would be several causes this isn’t mobile in any practical way. We toyed with the idea of touring it but it’s impossible. It’s hard enough setting up once. I couldn’t imagine doing it weekly."

    The selection of bands involved in this endeavor, Zombie says, was about availability. "Location wasn’t a factor but there were a lot of people who were going to do it but had to cancel cause of tours and other things. The main thing was trying to get variety because everyone doesn’t like the same type of music. The music is secondary. After you’re scared you can party your pants off!"

    And there is a party to be had. Everywhere you look. When you first enter the arena, you come across the Bloody Boulevard. This is a series of shops, eateries, alcohol, and amusements to entertain you and get you in the spirit. There is a carousel, a freak show (besides the ones roaming free), and other mini activities. This is all warm up for the main attractions, the mazes!

    The mazes are structured as a one…two…three punch of horror goodness, each attacking you in a different way. I won’t spoil this but here is a breakdown of the general set up.

    The Lords of Salem: This is the first in the series of mazes that you enter and it is very much like stepping into Heidi’s personal hell. The entrance is dark, red, and ominous with Heidi standing at the entrance, reaching out to you and screaming in pain.

    Once you are beyond the entrance, you walk through Heidi’s apartment hall and into a satanic hell. You are hooded at that point and trust me; you must experience the rest yourself. This maze is much like the movie, which is to say that you will either love it, be disturbed by it, or not get it at all.

    Next is El Superbeasto: This is an assault on your senses and good taste, much like the animated film. It begins with an entrance that you may love or hate depending on how easily you are offended. You dive between a set of spread female legs. This maze is like a perverted wonderland and is not to be missed. Obviously it is for adults, so this will be interesting as far as the public is concerned. This maze is also in eye (and pants) popping 3D which will mess with your senses further. A can’t miss!

    All roads end with House of 1000 Haunts: The culmination of the maze section takes you into Captain Spalding’s Museum of Monsters and Mad Men like never before. When walking in you are greeted by Baby and Tiny who will ask if you are good with being touched. I advise you to say “Yes” for the full experience.

    The “Murder Ride” is an expanded and terrifying walk through experience. Instead of simply walking past them as they do their deeds, you are actually transported to their world. Be warned; this maze actually may upset some on a moral, physical, and/or psychological level more than any other. Are lines crossed? Yes! Will I tell you what? No! Just trust me.

    Across from the maze venue is the concert hall where bands will be playing throughout the run, bands like Twisted, TSOL, The Vandals, Power man 5000, and of course Rob Zombie. For the band schedule, please check out the official site.

    This new haunt has a lot going for it but it also needs time to mature. There are some layout problems which is great for flow but detrimental to the overall experience. Is it worth the time and drive? For the money, you really can’t beat it. Just be sure to check on the bands to make sure that you are down with the musical acts since that is half the show. It’s a fun new idea and there is some great merch for sale as well. If you’re looking for the next step in adult orientated Halloween fun, then this may be it.

    If you are looking for a new slant on a theme for watching Horror flicks during the 'ween season, you could do a lot worse. DO NOT FEAR subtitles. Some of the better movies are being made by countries that do not hold English in high regard!
