Finally after what seemed like all of 8 years the DVD is finally AVALIABLE to the public! This DVD is what I consider one of my most anticipated DVD by me being that its jam packed with halloween horror nights goodness from start to finish. The main feature if the DVD is the actual event itself. The event is covered from the prospective of a regular park guest and is covered from the front gate to the exit! I have to let it be known that there isn't any house footage at all on the DVD. I'd rather reserve that to be experienced first hand because there is no video out there that can do the houses justice and besides, im far too busy inside the houses getting the crap scared outta me :lolr: . However the DVD does cover the infamous Bill & Ted show from start to finish! If you have seen my HHN 15 production then you pretty much have a stern idea of what to expect but this year I raised the bar and added some "extra" stuff to the DVD that I wont speak on, just let you be taken by surpised (heck, or dissapointed :lmao: ) but I will say this, it may bring back some memories for a few of you and maybe what alot of you wanted to see.

The one thing that I hate to say is that after last year I am afraid that in order to help cover the shipping cost and hardware cost (ie: the actual DVD, ink, DVD cases and covers) the dvd's are going to be $5.00 USD for national request and $8.00 for international orders. If you can afford that and willing to help cover the cost of the dvd then please do so. But I feel its well worth it being that its over 2 hours of footage and great quality. There are two ways to get the DVD. You can paypal me at adatpdvd@yahoo.com with your mailing information or you can send an email to the address adatpdvd@yahoo.com with your mailing information.

Also as mention below check out the preview videos to give you an idea of what you can expect and also check out other videos of mines here! Any questions please ask, pm me or send an email!

I decided to grace HHN with my presence this weekend :lolr: and I had a blast! Im not gonna be much on words go here goes the first set of pics...

^Thats what I use and its a pretty darn good camera!

Once I went around the park for a little bit I had to go to my unmasking the horror tour that started at 2pm. I was very estatic to find out I was gonna be the only one on the tour and I had the pleasure of having 2 tour guides and one who was actually shown in one of the earlier HHN videos portraying the chick from the exorcist. I was able to go thru all of the 3 soundstage houses but wasn't allowed to film or take pics in the house which isn't a big deal. It was even scarier going thru them then than at night because when your virtually alone in the house you dont know what to expect. I had soo much fun in the museum and we even got off topic and start talking about other stuff at the park like...say...back to the future (which they didnt share anything with me ;) ) But I did ask why doesn't universal make a "forgotten universal" style book showing all of the concepts that never came to life but the reply was "because you just may see some of the concepts in the years to come! I would definetly reccomend this to ANYONE point blank! Now on to the pictures...

Once the tour was over I decided to walk back to the room since I had just missed the water taxi and by the time another came I could have very well walked back to the room so I did just that. I basically went back to the room to get a few minutes of rest before I head to tchoup chop over at royal pacific to have dinner and I was blown away. This place was reccomended to me and im glad I followed what I was told. The place is a sight itself and the food, well right now im craving some of it!

$7.00 for a bottle of Fiji water at Universal? Wow, I can buy a box of 24 for $4.50 up here in Michigan...

Great Trip Report so far, can't wait to see the rest.

The next day had came and it was time to head back to the parks. I peeped my head in the studios for a little bit before heading to IOA. The parks were not crowded at all and everything was basically a walk on! I didnt take the tip erik mention about the flyers since I didnt wake up until like 10 lol lol but im gonna get it one day...One thing I would suggest is doing the meal deal thing. Its heaven sent because I was ordering the most expensive entree so I can get my moneys worth and I also got the sipper cup which is good forever!

Once upoooooon a time when the mood was right. An afro-american male went to halloween horror nights. The scares where great and plentiful. But outside the scarezones were preeeeetty dull. Horror came home thats what they say. I hope it returns back to IOA soon some day. The event was fun and such a blast. They just need to stop pushing soo many people thru the house so fast. Everything was brought back but it was was made a new. Lets just get to the halloween horror night review...
[/storyteller voice over]

Finally the "official" HHN pics!

But first in true fashion im gonna give my take on the houses in no particular order.

PSYCHOpath:
This was a fairly good house the house was big on technology with the "guest room" peep holes and the tunnel and things like that If I had not knwon that you would be entering the mind of norman bates before going to the event I would have been trying to figure out how does spinning tunnels and neon nipple covers on maniquins (however you spell it) tied in to psycho. The tent really did kill the house but I guess universal wanted a balance thru the whole park and didnt want to place the houses in one spot.

People Under the Stars:
Didnt really care much for this house. I think they featured the house too early on in construction because it was soo plain. The house was very light in the daytime so I decided to head back thru it (this time w/ a friend from HHNvault.com at night to see if anything was different which it wasnt kinda lol.

Dugeons of Terror:
Didn't really get this house and wondered why people had pig mask on. The story tellor voice over was pretty cool but this isn't a memorable house to me.

RUN:
They should name this house WET lol. it was a fun house and it had some good scares but I dont get the name "run" for this house because thats the last thing you can do in it. I was hoping to see eddie or someone w/ a chainsaw in it but I was dissapointed.

Screamhouse:
This house was great and I have to say the only house that I really would have to think about going thru twice. Im a little uneasy w/ deaths and funeral homes so that plays a part in it. The craftsmanship in this house is beyond belief but it was just too realistic for me lol lol. And for some of you who think thats is Cindy in that casket, think again. She had a life size doll who looked exactly like her (thats the doll in the picture beside her). The smells in that house where pretty darn creepy. This is one of the showcase houses for the event.

All Night DrIvE-in:
I really wanted to enter thru the movie screen like it was done in the past but going thur the directors room was still pretty fun. The movies at first I didnt think were going to work but it was pretty well done. I still think drew should haev been gutted or grabbed in the kitchen scene.

PsychoSCAREapy:
Very fun house w/ the occasional scare here and there. JACK IS IN THE HOUSE SEVERAL TIMES! And he isnt just sitting there leaning in a corner either! I liked this house especially during the black out. one room I actually got lost in.

Bill&Ted's show was pretty good and they make it so no one can complain about it because well, they bash themselves lol. The scarezone of the night was Harvest of the Souls! That place was swarming w/ scaractors even midget scaractors. And you know what, despite the size of blood masquerade it was very good and the scares where there. they had roaming male vamps and the sound effects where amazing. They even had the bungee vamps out there!

one of my only real gripes is that I feel they should have had some props w/ the scaractors on "horror comes home" area like for alice and the pumpkin head person they could have had an oversize book or something like that and for the ice queen some oceblocks or the thing she stood on during her year.
Well on to the pictures...
