The 2013 Eyegore Awards Ceremonies and Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood!
by: -RoG-


Into the El Cucuy maze we go!

The first thing we encountered was an audience of zombies watching a lucha libre wrestling movie.
At least the undead have good taste in cinema.

I think Universal needs to hire a better film archivist.
I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to store film reels next to rotting corpses.

Damn... I missed the party!

I'll sleep there, but not until somebody changes the sheets.

I'm guessing this is El Cucuy. Either that, or it's a Ferengi.
I didn't stick around long enough to see if it wanted some gold-pressed latinum.

Always good to have a storage space for all your carved jack-o-lanterns.

It's always a good sign when you enter a room with doll parts hanging everywhere, right?

Sad pumpkin man is sad.

What a great big burlap sack of strawberries!

This guy was easily my favorite thing about the maze. I love how even his guts had pumpkin seeds in 'em.

Pumpkins and blood... just another day in the life of El Cucuy. A decent maze with some nice visuals, but a bit too short.
I prefer the La Llorona one from previous years.

Clowning around.

That's quite a roomy coffin.

Somehow, I think skeleton man could find his way out of this cage.

If only all of us could be so hatchet happy.

Not sure what he's got in his hands there, but I am sure that it's dead.

I'm sure it's not his name, but I'm gonna call this executioner Irwin anyway.


That is one huge clown!

You can get a bracelet engraved, but you may get bit by a spider in the process.
Or maybe the spider does the engraving? I'd pay good money to see that.

So many attractions to choose from. Believe it or not, these wait times went up quickly throughout the night as well.
Word of advice: If you have the means, spring for the "front of the line" pass to avoid the 2+ hour waits on some mazes.

Time to check out The Walking Dead on the Terror Tram.

Down we go.

All aboard the Terror Tram for our next Halloween Horror Nights experience!

There's still more Halloween Horror fun to see!

I love love love these! I hope one day you guys will go to Knott's Scary Farm when Elvira is there. This year it looks like she's got an entire shop of souvenirs that make me extremely jealous to be on the East Coast.

goblyn - Yeah, if I can make it to Knotts before the end of the month, I'll definitely check out the Elvira show. I was really glad to hear she's finally returned after all these years.

Glad you all enjoyed the photos and the Doc Mock video!

I went to Horror Nights on Saturday, and man, I never realized how tough it must be to get some of these pictures. You're seriously quick on the draw, RoG.

Black Sabbath was my favorite maze because of all the crazy visuals (and that giant gas mask dude) but El Cucuy was a really nice surprise too. I'd love to see more of that.

I have to say, though, Insidious was the only maze I didn't enjoy. The rooms were cramped, there were props and actors everywhere, and the constant bright flashes and loud sounds made the whole thing more overwhelming than fun.

Yeah, It's extremely difficult to get decent haunt maze photos, and that's why you really don't see a lot of sites doing it. I'll often actually stand off to the side in the mazes while people walk by, as I try to get the photos, sometimes snapping 10 or more to get just the right one!
