New Year...New Fear!

Greetings My Darklings!

Kit Casket here, with a quick something for the new fear! You've celebrated the ball of wet stuff going around a bright thing for another year, congrats on that. Big accomplishment.

More importantly, I have to say that this year, so far, has been a weird one. Well, even weirder than usual for this beautiful vacation spot called Hel. It's cold, sure, but the owner of the place is a pretty awesome girl by the same name, and she make a pretty bad ass cup of tea. So, it's not all bad.

But, enough about the locale...

We, by that I mean mostly myself, have no clue just what this year will bring from this site to your eyeballs. Mmmm, eyeballs...wait, no, that's not what I meant! Or, is it? Anyway! I'm looking forward to helping bring all the best news, reviews, and other weirdness from the haunt world straight from the dirt that the townsfolk covered me with!

Not sure that's something to brag about, but hey, it's just how the tombstone crumbles. Just wanted to get in real quick and get back out with a hello and we'll see you on the dark side.

Sweet Screams and Pleasant Nightmares!

Halloween Horror Nights Orlando Announces Earliest Ever Opening Date for 2019!

Universal Orlando isn't wasting any time, and although we're not quite done with 2018 yet, they've decided to announce the dates for HHN before the blood has even dried from this past year's event. Halloween Horror Nights 2019 will be running on select nights from Sept 6th thru Nov 2nd. That is a ton of nights for folks to get a chance to see the event!

While news is awesome, as so many people love the event, I can think of a few reasons not to overdo things; event fatigue, diluting quality, and a host of other things come to mind but here's to hoping they can pull it off.

There's not much else to really report here on this one but keep it tuned in for more news out of Halloween Horror Nights Orlando and haunts all over the world as we gear up for 2019!

Side note, it's also fitting that the first haunt write up here is also from one of my favorite haunts to have worked at over the  years.

2018 Review Tour Cancelled and 2019 News

Hey everyone, this may come as a shock (read: not really) but this year I won't be attending any haunts and therefore not doing any reviews. This is the second year now that I really haven't done much and there's a good reason for that...


Yep, that's right, just finished the first part of a move to a much better location than previous. There's actually people here, and things. However, there's no haunts anywhere nearby which is a massive bummer. The nearest haunted house to me? 104 miles away. Scary to think that's actually an improvement over the last place we were living, where it was like 150. So, I know what you're saying now, "So what? You traveled a ton to visit them before, why does it matter now?" and that's a valid point.

However, unlike before, it's a little trickier to get up and go all the time here given that nothing is even remotely close. Back in the Pittsburgh area, there were about 50 haunts within that radius from my house.

Of course, this doesn't mean that I'm throwing in the towel, not in the least. It does mean that I will be taking a slight break and figuring out how to do one of the things I love from this remote of a location. This may mean planning trips that are longer in an area to get the most bang for the buck, trying to get more sponsorship (read: any), stealing people's kidneys in their sleep (mostly kidding), or flat out doing something crazy like Patreon, or something else entirely.

So, while this haunt season is nearly ended, I'm going to work on everything that's needed for next season to be amazing from our end of things. On top of that, I fully plan to start reporting on news from haunts large and small all over the US and beyond once more as well. That should help ease things until we get back on the road.

I also am working on shifting all of the reviews that were formerly on Kitsuneverse.com to this site as well, and hope that in the coming year I'll have them all shifted over.

Really looking forward to what this new region is going to bring as far as haunts go and sharing that with you in 2019 and beyond!

Sweet Screams and Pleasant Nightmares!

New Things are Afoot!

No, not that foot. Though, I'm sure that we could dig one up somewhere around here, folks seem to misplace their feet quite often.

Anyway, just a little note here that we're still in the process of moving everything over from the the Kitsuneverse.com site to here. Yes, we are moving all the haunt reviews over. The Haunt news section over there, not so much. Most of that is all outdated but we will link to an archive of it!

Anyway, that's all I have to say about things right now. So, until we meet again, sweet screams and pleasant nightmares!
