Fear Itself in Mishawaka with the Cukoo's Nest was fantastic. All the haunts were great, but that stood out to me as pretty original. The sheer size of the Niles Scream Park was impressive, the Dance scene at The Haunt was unique and original. Lots of good stuff. We did the Friday trip to the Hoochie, are you kidding me. Taking nothing away from any Haunt, including my own, this place is on a whole new level. The show was great, lots of vendors and some good deals as well. Saturday Night was killer once again at the party and after party. Absolutely unbelievable costumes

Sean you have summed it up well, I agree. I think from a attendee point of view it was the best MHC I have been to. From what I heard from vendors they did about as good as last year to better than last year. I know that Froggy's was sold out of almost all foggers and fog juice, Brutal Rust sold out including they sold the booth, Screamline was out of latex the first day, and the show floor was busy up until the show closed. Kelly and his team have done a great job and can't wait for next year.

Another great MHC! These guys & gals really know how to put on a smooth running show from start to finish.
Attendance was clearly up over last year. The Zombie Army did not show (apparently due to scheduling conflicts) and I missed not having their energy there but it was still a great party Saturday night.

I love this show and will do it again next year!

The show was a FANTASTIC time...as always!
The Hoochie Friday night was INSANE and Unit 70 Studios tour was awesome...their stuff is so real looking!
The show was busier than in the past in my opinion.
Sunday I was there until 3 and could not believe how busy it was...a friend of mine tried to get some stuff from Screamline and they were sold out!
I love this show and it's definitely a DON'T MISS event! :)

It was our first trip to the convention, can't believe how crowded it was Sat morning and then Sunday to... just wasn't expecting such a crowd. Everybody seemed pretty excited, good vibe overall. They had a stage in the rear where Allen H and few others spoke, but, the convention was too loud to hear them well... probably need to move that stage back further. The Arena District was great, right across street from convention center, lots of bars, food everywhere and then a street party festival with 3 bands playing on Fri-Sat night... tons of stuff going on and location was fantastic. The Haunted Hoochie was probably best haunt I've been to, it's just over the top all around, one phrase "Crazy in your face" all the time. The setting on the farm with the Silos is an unbelievable entrance. I can't believe in one scene there must have been 4 animatronics all going off at the same time, insane. The tour at Unit 70 was very insightful and inspiring, just the fact they let thousands of haunters thru and left their workfloor with all the props sitting out and let everybody go anywhere was extremely cool, not to mention several half barrels of beer and food onsite, couldn't have been better in mind, props were unreal, loved it. Then, ok then the costume party Saturday, unbelievable, that ball room was over filled with standing room only practically.... and the most amazing thing was to see everybody dressed, I bet 98% of the folks dressed and never seen so many kick ass costumes, hands down unbelievable. If you want to get people involved in the haunt industry take them to this show and watch their jaws drop, some of the best costumes in the world ! So, we we're thrilled and can't wait for next year.

Haunted Hoochie was good, but the long wait to get tickets and to get in kinda sucked but the tour of the haunt was very well done. Great job badass you guys outdid yourselves!

Did anyone else hear that "lady" who was barking orders loading people onto the busses to the hooch? Wow, if you've never felt like a carnie instead of a serious haunt business owner she answered the call. Dropping F bombs and yelling and cursing people barking orders and looking unkempt it didn't seem like the best position for her. I heard quite a few comments from others in line. A bit surprising, don't know why haunters feel the need to act like that and play into the stereotypes but it is what it is I guess.

This was my first MHC, and it was fun but a very small convention as far as vendors. No one had anything new that I saw since transworld. It definitely seemed to more of a regional actors show but I still had a lot of fun and anytime I can travel for haunted house stuff is a plus.

Is this the lady your speaking of? You know she is playing a character called Mommie D (As in Mommie Dearest), really nice sweet lady when shes not playing Mommie D. 16601

Tater,

Yes that's her lol
I'm sure she's a fantastic person in her regular life. How she acted in character was gross, and the profane and bossy shtick may work in some circles but it wreaked of carnie folk and not on a professional level. Like I said I'm sure she's great but maybe someone acting and talking like that should be moved to be better position if she's representing MHC and the haunt industry. I just wasn't expecting to hear from a woman to "move my F*****g a** you're pissing me off already" that particular night lol!

For those interested, here is the MHC video we created. It has some interviews with some of the vendors from the show, a look at who was vending and some of the footage from the party Sat. Enjoy!

Badass, nice quote but are you sure you want to use a homosexual atheist as your example since his very nature was to piss people off? Just curious.

Jake I don't know how long you've been in the business but I don't ever seeing things like this changing from the business. Instead of trying to emerge out of the old sterotypes too many want to embrace them and present themselves in a manner that's anything BUT professional. Many want to embrace the "hey we are rebels we are different lets look like freaks and talk like we have a third grade education because that's how you show we are TRUE haunters, HELL YEAH!"

Holy shit yall are stupid, Shes been doing this character for at least 6 years...(Transworld Chicago) is when I first saw her. She is playing a character, there is nothing more to it. How do you sit there and say I dont expect to be cussed at then board a bus to one of the most extreme and badass haunts in the country? She has a short window of time to move XXX number of people on a bus, so they can stay on schedule. She is going to try to say and do everything she can to make sure everyone is paying attention and boarding the bus in a timely manor...I cant say I blame her for cussing, you just should thank your lucky stars Granny wasnt out there...I know for a fact she woulda said alot worse
