Silver Screams
B-79 (Parade Building) | RatingRatingRatingRatingRating (2)
Julian Browning has been the usher at the Universal Palace since it opened in 1922; of course he’s been dead since 1940 but he still commands respect for his most beloved films from every patron. Buy a ticket to the Universal Palace and let Julian usher you into a realm where the horror on the screen is ripped away to reveal a world that is truly terrifying. Features “Shaun of the Dead” “The Phantom of the Opera” “My Bloody Valentine 3D” and other popular horror films.
The Spawning
Sprung Tent #2 | RatingRatingRatingRatingRating (1)
Something “different” has moved in among the sewers of Wyandot County Ohio. The locals claim that these creatures the “Sculders” are two feet tall with the body of a snake. As a volunteer member of the local water district it is your civic duty to venture into these pipes and restore the flow. But beware the locals are wrong about the “Sculders” and the only thing that will be flowing is your blood as it leaves your lifeless body.
The Wolfman
Soundstage #22 | RatingRatingRatingRatingRating (2)
Pure. Animalistic. Rage. Take a journey through England’s countryside and come face to fangs with one of the most terrifying creatures to ever explode from the silver screen. Forget everything you thought you knew and prepare yourself for the sights and sounds of the newest addition to Universal Pictures’ legacy of horror.
Avenue of the Stars | ??/5
When an experimental bio-nerve gas is accidentally released into the atmosphere the streets are filled with a toxic green mist that turns anyone that comes in contact with it into an infected melting glob of flesh and blood.
War of the Living Dead
8th Avenue (Shrek Alley) | ??/5
On a remote island in the Pacific during the last days of World War II German military attempted to create the unthinkable – a new breed of super-soldier made from the reanimated corpses of the dead. American forces quickly seized the island compound but not before the reanimate agent was released. The island was quarantined and has remained a secret until now. Fifty years later the two opposing dead forces are still locked in immortal combat with you caught in the cross-hairs.
Lights Camera Hacktion!!!

Hollywood Boulevard is being used as a location for the filming of the next big horror movie to be released in October 2010: The CHAINSAW DRILL TEAM MASSACRE in 3-D. Lights Camera Hacktion! Our director Mas Imair and noted horror film aficionado is bringing the massacre to life in blood-red terrorcolor. But the actors seem to be taking their direction literally and are “hacking” through the cast and crew. It’s a close encounter of the worst kind as the backlot becomes a hacklot and the streets run red with blood. Are you ready for your close-up?
Horrorwood Die-In

    Years like this are the ones I miss where it had a conclusive general theme, and presented us a new icon, which has become a lost art as of late ever since Orlando and Hollywood started doing join ventures as opposed to having individuality from each other. All the houses were good, especially the Silver Screams house, which I give bonus points for having a "Shaun of the Dead" section in it.
