Part of my Halloween Horror Nights 24 (HHN) adventures was taking the Unmasking the Horror Tour. This tour takes fans on a behind the scenes look at the haunted houses. Our tour took us into 6 of their 8 houses so I decided to break them each up into their own post in order to give you a better look at each of them. This is a behind the scenes look at the “From Dusk Till Dawn” house, which is based on the new TV series.
The above video is a series of photos that I took while on the tour. What I will be doing now is describing some of the things you saw in the video, so you might want to read this and then go back and watch the video again.
The house is basically the famous bar, which in this case is called the Twister. At night there is a scare actor standing on the steps telling everyone to come right in. He's giving hints at what everyone can expect once inside.
I included the pic above to show you how they change the writing on things like bottles, boxes, or anything branded not only in this house but others. Here you can see the beer has been renamed "Aass Bokk." Sometimes things are renamed to be funny, while others things might have meaning. Of course things like this are hard to see while going in the house at night.
One theme throughout this house is the stripper vampires. Sorry I have no pictures of them. There are several places where there are curtains like in the pic, where the strippers are hiding behind.
Some of them are dancing, and having a good time with their victims just before they try to jump out and scare you. The above pic is a good example of that kind of scene. At night a vampire is on top of this victim dancing, and having a snack before springing out at people.
In the video you will see a lot of snakes, a lot of them. There are also some bats among other things around the house. There are a lot of tight areas except for this opening in the above pic.
The final set of pics lead you into the final room of the house. As you walk in, you are coming from behind the register. There is a table where some victims were playing cards.
One of victims has ended up on the pool table. An up close look at her shows that she has been bitten on the neck by a vampire.
I included a pic of this victim below because if you look closely that is a Disney button on her. That wasn't the only Disney button I found while touring.
Here we have the main dance floor where the major entertainment is taking place. At night while you are looking around for the vampires, there is a scare actor there with a chainsaw ready to take on the vampires.
Overall, this wasn’t one of my favorite houses. I’m sure a lot of people enjoyed looking at the stripper vampires, but it didn’t make the house that scary. It was fun watching the scare actors pretend to eat their victims. Also, it was fun getting an up close look at some of the victims on the tour.
So that was a look at the “From Dusk Till Dawn” house. If you have any questions about the house, or HHN24, please feel free to ask.
