Could you find out how they go about deciding between creating a new central character, re-using an existing one and going without?
I have never more anticipated a HHN than I did two years ago when they unveiled the "Carnival of Carnage" I wanted to go so bad that year and couldn't.
Then last year they had Bloody Mary as the central character who at first did not seem as impressive but the online tie-ins to the event kept going. Even as HHN was already going on they kept making the story deeper and more twisted which made me want to go more as the event progressed.
So, now I sit and look over the material already released for this years HHN. I am neither impressed nor salivating at wanting to go. The only thing that could make me jump and go is the fact that I still have that free 7-day pass from the Super Bowl Promotion.
Oh, If you could find out what exactly goes on with the R.I.P. Tours for HHN.
It's kind of an odd trio - two supernatural beings (a serial killer controlling a doll, and a werewolf) and a psychopath with a motive to make people appreciate life.
Also interesting to note is that the trio represents three eras of horror: classic (with supernatural beings and creepy elements rather than "jumpy" horror), slasher (encompassing charismatic killers from the '70s - '00s), and torture porn (the trend of recent years).
I hope they update the website to be on par with (or better than) last year's website.
I personally loved the entire experience of Legendary Truth which the website is still up at www.legendarytruth.com . I do really hope they will bring back a follow up of LT or a new era of it.
I would like to know though why they chose to go down the route of a 3 year series in Horror Movies beginning with this years event. It's a great idea and I hope it lives up to last years incredible theme.
Robert, will you be going to the press event the very first night or will you be flying a little bit later along? I'd love to see a local TPI get together happen.
