Just when you thought you wanted to get more and better announcements for Halloween Horror Nights this year well, today just got even better. The long awaited and rumored of the 2015 Christmas horror/comedy film “Krampus” got announced for dual coasts for both Orlando and Hollywood. In case you don’t know what “Krampus” is that it’s based on a old ancient folklore story in Europe that is a “Half-Goat, Half-Demon” that punishes kids that are being bad during the Christmas period. Universal Pictures is in collaboration with filmmaker Michael Dougherty and Legendary Pictures in order making this a not so pleasant holiday experience that the demon will terrorize you.

Universal Studios Hollywood just confirmed this not too long ago for there Halloween Horror Nights 2016 via on there Twitter page.
Here’s what the press release statement in talking about it in detail from the Universal Studios Orlando Blog by Charles Gray:
“The Engel home is decked out for the holidays and all of you are invited to join them. From the myriad of dark elves, gingerbread men wielding nail guns, and the engorged Jack-in-the-Box, to my favorite… the Teddy Bear, each room is full of its own horrifying moments pulled from the film.
You’ll not only try and dodge the invading dark elves around every corner, but will also have to keep your holiday spirits up, while sneaking past the looming presence of Krampus himself. Each encounter with Krampus holds its own unique perspective, as he gathers more souls for his sinister workshop.
The excitement for this property, and what it adds to this year’s event, is the same excitement as waiting to see what Santa has left under the tree. Mixing two cups of horror with humor, a tablespoon of trick, with a dash of treat, and you’ll receive the most gruesome holiday gift ever.”
Now if you haven’t seen this image circulating on the web and social media by now and from what I am understanding here that this was either fake or real for the layout for HHN 26 at Universal Studios Orlando, Universal Hollywood I am not quite sure at the moment for it. From the people who I know and are in the themed entertainment industry to get this clarified, for this map that is in fact “legit”. Here’s why is in fact legit for the park layout.
If you cross off so far all the announced houses by Universal Studios even today of the announcement of “Krampus” only these houses/mazes and shows are left. Which are still rumor and speculation from the map of “American Horror Story”, “Requel”, “Cobweb”, and “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure”. The original source who broke this map out is by HorrorNightNightmares.com and specifically ask them on there forums page.
So what do you guys think? Are you excited that “Krampus” is finally coming towards this year’s HNN? Are you going to be bad or good for your own goodness sake too?
