I am sure most of you follow Horror Nights on Twitter, and if you do you've noticed that John Murdy who runs the account has already posted quite a few hints for some of this years mazes.
I figured this could be a mega thread of sorts where we can discuss the ever so difficult hints he drops and talk about what we want/think will come to Horror Nights this year. Below in quotes are tweets he's sent out - I figure that's easier than linking to every single one.
Okay here's a hint. Every maze has its own unique challenge. For this particular maze there are several challenges… costumes is oneThis maze also has challenging scenic environments and a complicated story to communicate without using dialogue. Sound effects will be keyYou may think you know it but you don't. It's something we've never done before. Normally I wouldn't do it but I felt like a challenge...The code name for the 1st maze is "Malcolm" Why? Well the hint is specific to a famous Malcolm...it will all make sense later. Stay TunedOkay here's the first hint about the maze code-named "Malcolm" This maze is not based on a TV show or a video game...The code name refers to a "famous" Malcolm. He could be living, dead, fictional, Something about his career is the hint to the maze theme...Here's your first hint. "location, location, location." Geography plays a role in this maze. The setting is well-known to horror fans.Here's your next hint. You're going to have to do some research to figure this one out. It comes in the form of the short, true story...I started at Universal as a tour guide in 1989, that year I gave the VIP tour to one of the most famous people in the world at that time...… I'll narrow it down for you. That famous person was a musician. One of his albums is a hint to the theme of the maze... Who was he?This will be your last hint for the maze code-named "Malcolm" The title of the song sung by one of the "X-Men" God that's evil! LOL #carnySo, that is Maze #1 "Malcolm" as we know it..That's all the hints for "Malcolm" Since I'm an evil carny of course there's a evil twist, one of the hints could be a red herring...(gasp)
