Things are about to get real strange at Horror Nights this year. Every year the man behind it all John Murdy a man straight out of our own city Whittier always raises the bar each time. This year is no different he’s bringing the beloved Stranger Things to horror nights this year. Just like every other maze he does it’ll be sure to scare the hell out of you.

This maze follows the story arc of season 1 and all of the major events that took place in it. Murdy had said “It was fairly easy to get this one, we all wanted to do this”. The creators behind the show The Duffer Brothers are actually big fans of his work. And really wanted to see this happen in a real life fashion. It’s no secret that Murdy pours his heart and soul into this he went on record and said “Every time I watch a show I put in at least 8 hours to make sure I get everything right” now imagine how many hours he sunk into this project.

He has a team of hundreds of people to help him on these projects. You can tell this as well with the amount of detail in it. From getting the right books on the floor that got 0.1 screen time to getting the clocks on the wall right. The people who make all the props, makeup, and all the techonal work that goes into it. He went on to say “I’ll get a text from one of the works at midnight saying I just installed new lights”. These people are hear from sun up to the next sun up. All just to make sure that we get a real scary experience.

A lot of time and effort went into making this massive show into a maze. The detail that is put in all of this is really immersive making you feel like you’re truly in Hawkins. The second you walk in you see mikes lost bike as he was riding home, but try not to get to distracted by that because out of every corner because the Demogorgon is waiting for you at every corner. Looking to fright you when and however it can. After managing to escape near death you enter Mikes house. And see that iconic wall with all the lights flashing with Mike trying to tell us something.

Once you manage to escape the house the Demogorgon isn’t the only thing chasing you Dr. Brenner “Bad Men” are going to make sure you don’t live to tell a soul. But you manage to run into the lab where it all started, but don’t fear you have Jim Hopper there to help you and your cause. The further you explore the more strange things get because the next stop is the upside down world.

Once inside the homeworld of the Demogorgon you see it in all it’s might. With all the people who’ve fallen victim to it including Barbara. It won’t be happy that you’re on its home turf and be sure to chase you out. Once your out you’ll find yourself in the science class that the gang attends with Eleven finally  saving the day and killing the Demogorgon. But even with it dead are you still safe from it?

If you feel like your up to the challenge this year you have to check out Stranger things.
