History and Location[edit | edit source]
On August 14th, 2019, Universal announced that a haunted house based on the 2003 movie, House of 1000 Corpses would be coming to their Halloween Horror Nights event that year. The codename for this house was "chicken", a reference to how the gas station from the movie sold fried chicken.
The house would be located in a temporary tent located behind the Men in Black extended queue. The tent would be put up before the event (to hold the haunted house) and taken down after the event.
The haunted house would be very popular, and would go on to win the House of the Year award. This would make it the first house to win the award that was located in the MIB Tent.
Description[edit | edit source]

Scream all you want, you won't find any mercy from the Fireflys as each family is more sadistic than the next. It's a never-ending nightmare of blood and gore as they lunge at you from every filthy corner of their decrepit house with rusty implements of horror.

Experience[edit | edit source]
Queue and Facade[edit | edit source]
The queue entered to the right of the Fear Factor Stage. The queue would go through the exterior Men in Black extended queue. The facade is based off of Captain Spaulding's Museum of Monsters and Madmen. On the left side is the giant skull entrance for the murder ride. Additionally Bill & Ted's phone booth can also be seen.
Haunted House[edit | edit source]
As guests entered the house, they would be greeted by a Clown Animatronic (really a scareactor) who would stand still, only to laugh sporadically. Guests would then enter the opening scene from the movie, where the corpses of Richard Wick and Killer Karl could be seen as Captain Spaulding mocks them behind his desk. The next room featured Ravelli attacking guests with a sledgehammer. After that, guests would enter a transition room, playing one of the transitions from the movie on a screen (on both the left-hand wall and on the ceiling), while hanging dolls and masks could be seen strewn about the room. Next, guests would enter the bedroom of the Firefly Farmhouse, where Baby in her show outfit would jump out. Mary could be seen tied to a chair wearing a dunce cap (mannequin) and Otis B. Driftwood also appeared in this room. After that, guests enter a small room where they could see the Mermaid Man.
The following room was another bedroom, where Jerry Goldsmith could be seen tied to a chair. Baby Firefly would then pop out of a boo-hole, and scalp him. The corpse of a cheerleader also appeared on the bed. Guests would then enter the basement, where Tiny Firefly would jump out across from a boiler and some stairs with many different props on it. Further into the room, guests would see a captive Denise Willis in a cage and another Otis jumping out.
Next, guests would enter into a hall in the firefly house where they could see Grandpa Hugo and Mother Firefly jumping out next to Jerry, Nancy, and Mary dressed up as bunnies tied up. Going further down the hallway, guests would see Otis wearing Don Willis' skin jumping out. Guests would then enter another transition room, this time with a screen on the ceiling and Christmas stockings strewn about. The next room featured an "outside" area, where a few different scarecrows were strewn about. A trashcan would rattle and shake as guests entered the barn. In the barn, guests would see the corpses of four cheerleaders, while Rufus Firefly wearing a bear costume jumps out on the right.
The next room featured the underground tunnels, where a few corpses were strewn across the rocky wall. Guests could see Jerry in a bunny costume jumping out and the broken wooden cage above them. Two of Dr. Satan's Minions would jump out of holes in the walls and grab at guests. Next, guests would be standing right outside of Dr. Satan's lair, as a bone chandelier hangs from above and one of Dr. Satan's assistants points guests into the door. In Dr. Satan's Lair, guests would see Dr. Satan "operating" on Jerry on the right (exposing his skull and ribcage), while Earl Firefly jumps out on the left. Going back into the tunnels, Earl Firefly would jump out at guests twice more, the second time causing a blast of air to blow in the guests face. After that, guests would be outside of the murder attraction, where Otis and Baby would jump out wearing their sacrificial clothes. They could also see pictures outside advertising killers such as Ed Gein, Albert Fish, and Lizzie Borden. Entering the Murder attraction, guests would see a sign detailing the various murderers they would see, as one final Captain Spaulding jumps out at the end. Guests would then exit the house.
