More exciting news from Midsummer Scream as we are just a month away (eeeeek!!) from the Halloween and horror convention (if you want to know what to expect from the event, check out my past visits HERE, HERE, and HERE!)! Today it was revealed that Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood event Horror Made Here: A Festival of Frights will have a major panel presentation revealing more details of its rapidly-expanding haunt. I'm hoping with the upcoming release of The Nun they will have a maze based on her character, as well as other characters from The Conjuring universe. And how fun would it be to walk through an IT maze?! To find out more, check out the official press release below:
