Guess I better rack up the money to go to HHN27 then. Heard a rumor that the FX contract was for two years only. I really wanna see Asylum come to life. 

If you listened to the Orlando United Podcast, it seems that FX and Universal are on much better terms than the contract that was for AMC and Universal. I have to believe, they will extend the contract if things turn out to be similar to last year in terms of it's popularity.

Speaking of Writer's Block Codename I found a really strong connection recently. Murdy stated the connection was not with Writer's Block but with the Photo and how the Keyboard is missing M and N. If you look up MN you get Minnesota. David WARREN Ellefson who plays for the Band Megadeth comes from Minnesota. One of their albums called "Peace sells... but who's buying" has a song called "The Conjuring".

Man, This is the End had the potential to be a good maze. Such a missed opportunity to use demon Jonah as an actual scareactor that popped out instead of using the same demon over and over again.

So if the planets align, I have a chance to go to another screening tomorrow. I'll be interested to see what changes have been made to it since the last one. Going to have some extra maze cravings after, though. I just know it;)

An update: All changes were a godsend. I didn't think I could love it more than I already did BUT. My best friend and I shrieked out loud with delight over an addition.

I assume you were watching a screening of The Last Jedi and definitely not a Stephen King related movie, specifically the new remake of the 90's classic IT starring Bill Skarsgård as the new role of Pennywise the Clown.

100% The Last Jedi. I'm pretty sure a maze that's nothing but Crylo Ren would be the scariest thing Murdy could do.

Ok so after a long amount of time I finally got a bit more info from my Source. I have two bits of news

1) Insidious will be a Hollywood Exclusive from what I have heard. Meaning that Writer's Block is Insidous and it being in JP Queue. Our two Exclusive Mazes will be Blumhouse Mashup and Insidous. So for those wondering because of the Issue with the Conjuring Franchise being Sued and Insidous Chapter 4 being pushed back they are both still happening.

2) There will be 3 or (Possibly) 4 Scare Zones this year. No returning (As stated by Murdy). All Original. Heard there would finally be a Scare Zone on the Lower Lot and it will have Chainsaws. So if 3 it could be Opening Scaremony, French Street, and Lower Lot/Backlot (Shared Scare Zone). 

It is gonna be interesting how these next Couple of Weeks play out.

(I know I'm double Posting)

So I got a New Connection for Charles and "The Shining" that fits better. The Hints for "Charles" are...

- Tricker than "The Exorcist"

- Has a Iconic Scene that is Instantly associated with the Property and took Murdy a while to figure out

- The Codename could have to do with a Character

- "The other relates to property but is personal too"

- Murdy is excited about this Maze as he thought he never would do it

- "Everything Old is New Again"

- "Yes I named this maze after a friend of mine who shares a name...and other connections"

- "Shhh..."

- Treatment is 71 Pages Long 

So "Charles"... The Show Brockmire has a Character named John Elton played by Ryan Lee and one of the main characters is Charles played by Tyrel Jackson Williams. The Song "Everything Old is New Again" has the lyrics "Put it on backwards when forwards fails" which reverse the name and you get Elton John. Elton John is actually friends with Murdy through Alice Cooper. A famous song person who did a song called "Shine on through".

Also for fun. I recently saw a video that I think is something along the lines of how our Version will work and it will be the Backwards and Forwards Theory. Similar to the Exorcist Banned Trailer Inspiration. Check it out!
