Warner Brothers “Horror Made Here” taking hiatus for 2019


“Horror Made Here” was an amazing experiment in horror, with some of the most amazing horror franchises at the very place where they were made. 2018 was the second year of the event, and it looked like 2019 was going to be equally amazing. Well…it looked like it anyway.

An email went out earlier today, and the official website was updated with a message about the upcoming event for 2019.

April 9, 2019 – Thank you for being a Horror Made Here fan. It was a “frightful” pleasure producing Horror Made Here: A Festival of Frights and celebrating the Halloween season with you on the hallowed grounds of our backlot last year. For 2019 we are taking a break and will not be producing one of our signature events as we have exciting news to announce later this year for our Studio Tour.

This year, Warner Bros. has an incredible slate of Horror films for you to experience including New Line Cinema’s The Curse of La Llorona on April 19th, Annabelle Comes Home on June 28th, IT Chapter Two on September 6th, and Warner Bros. Pictures’ Doctor Sleep on November 8th.

Also, this Spring, a one-of-a-kind experience will creep into the city of Los Angeles for a limited engagement. Beginning on April 4th, the multi-sensory installation inspired by some of Warner Bros. Pictures’ and New Line Cinema’s most iconic scary movies will lure fans into artistic reinterpretations of the worlds of the first chapter in the IT saga,The Shining, Beetlejuice, The Lost Boys, and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

This brings up some interesting theories and rumors, namely, will the event return? The Southern California event was s pretty heavy hitter at Halloween, and it could have created a massive rivalry between them and Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood, especially with the massive line up of solid horror coming this year from the studio.

Then there is the HHN factor. With the absence of Horror Made Here, will HHN get access to certain WB properties like “IT” and the Conjuring? Possibly, but I wouldn’t hold your breath just yet.

Here’s hoping the event comes screaming back in 2020 even bigger and meaner than ever.
