So anyone who knows me really well will tell you that when it comes to 99.8% of horror out of there, I am a huge chicken! The Universal Monsters don’t bother me and a few other horror things don’t, but overall I’m not good with horror. For anyone who doesn’t believe me, ask my best friend Cat how many times she had to force me to watch a horror movie with her over the years and how I reacted to most of them. Truthfully, I also find it weird that I’m not a bigger horror fan because of all the weird and dark things I’m into. But then again I’m weird, so I guess it makes sense?
Any who! So on our last trip to Universal Studios before it closed (insert sad face here), my boyfriend and I decided to check out the Make-Up Horror Show they have. My boyfriend’s dad and step-mom saw it back in August and seemed to like it, so we finally decided to go see it.
So when we entered the auditorium, this was the stage we saw. And this is the only photo I was able to get because they didn’t allow photos during the show. I thought the stage looked really cool, but I also didn’t feel like it gave anything away.
I don’t want to go into too much detail about the show in case anyone wants to see it, so all I will do is give my review of it. While I found the show entertaining, I was disappointed with it. As someone who watched Face Off when it was on television, I was expecting this show to be like that but obviously not on a grand scale like that show. I was expecting it to be better than it was in terms of the make-up aspect.
And the horror aspect of it wasn’t there like I thought it would be. I was expecting something scary to happen and when something did happen, I wasn’t scared (I had actually expected it because it seemed really obvious to me). So while it was entertaining and the facts I learned were interesting, overall I was disappointed with it.
So yeah, I guess I tried to get myself scared this month, which ended up failing! But there’s always Halloween Horror Nights to look forward to in October, so hopefully that doesn’t disappoint! But with all the things I’ve heard about it, I don’t think it will. But even though this show wasn’t what I expected it to be, I’m proud of myself for attending it because I really didn’t know what to expect and for all I know, I could have gotten really scared! But I didn’t, which actually had me a bit disappointed… I swear I make no sense sometimes!
But I already have my new thing planned for next month, so my question is- What do you think my new thing I try will be for April? I’m curious to see what you guys think! Also, have you ever attended anything that made you scared? Tell me about it! Have a good week everyone!
