Universal Halloween Horror Nights 2018: Trick R Treat Rules the Park

trickrtreatbus

I know Stranger Things is the big headliner this year, but IMHO… Trick R Treat was the real darling of the whole damn thing this time around! For fans of Michael Dougherty’s 2007 epic anthology, the treats start not long after entering the park. A special scare zone and some really great decor await you upon arrival. If you’re a Trick R Treat fan, chances are you’ll lose your shit about T-minus two minutes into your night. Not a bad start.

Castle Rock: Jackie Torrance Potential Season Two Plotline?

I am nerding out sooo hard right now! If you haven’t finished Castle Rock, don’t read this. While the finale left me not entirely fulfilled, it was still a fun show and interesting enough for a recommended watch.

Midsummer Scream 2018 – Second Annual Celebration of Halloween

You scream, I scream, we all scream for Halloween mid-summer. Midsummer Scream‘s second annual convention was a massive success. If you slept on it this year, DO NOT MISS OUT NEXT YEAR. I personally vastly underestimated this con and went for Sunday only. Could have easily spent a full day walking the mazes and attending panels, and another full day attending panels and walking the show floor. The Gold Bat pass would be worth it for the mazes alone, if you’re into that. Which… if you’re attending a Halloween con… I assume you are!
