PHN 2009: A hint of things to come from Universal Studios Orlando?

Posted on YouTube is a video from the HorrorWood scarezone at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights event.  In this section, a giant screen shows clips from movies old and new that are part of this year’s event, while actors dressed like the characters from those movies walk around and scare the crap out of you.  However, some patient fans have noticed a possible hidden message amongst the footage.

From Screamscape,

A reader visiting Halloween Horror Nights tells us that they came across what sounds like a little Easter egg possibly for next year’s haunt. While standing outside Mel’s Diner and watching the drive-in movie screen for a bit of time, they noticed something odd at the end of the reel. A movie ticket stub comes on the screen and says “Coming Soon”, followed by footage of a “clown”, and then Flashlight (The Usher) holding a finger to his mouth as if to say “Shhhh!” The footage jumped back and forth between the clown and Flashlight for a few more seconds before coming to an end. It kind of makes one wonder if this may be a hint that Jack may be coming back again.

The current rumor is that Jack will be getting married, and all icons from HHN’s past will be attending the event, with their own gifts (I’m assuming each one will get a house dedicated to their theme).

In other Halloween Horror Nights news, another rumor states that (and inside sources have potentially verified) with the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening next year, Universal may actually hold a family friendlyevent at their Islands of Adventure park next year, in addition to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. This event is intended to be similar to Disney’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, with children dressing up to trick or treat at candy stands set up around the park. This would work especially well in some of the family-oriented environments at Islands of Adventure, like Dr. Seuss, Marvel’s SuperHero Island, and the upcoming Harry Potter.
