Today Howl-O-Scream Insider gave away another hint to this year's event to celebrate 44K Likes on Facebook. Shortly after a small hint, Insider gave out a HUGE hint as to what one of this year's new haunted houses will be based on.
"THIS JUST IN! I just found out what one of the *new* haunted houses is for 2011, and it's going to be absolutely off the hook. Picture an experience inspired by some of the most psychologically thrilling stories of all time... a terrifying journey ripped from the pages of THE master of gothic horror. For true terror fans, it just doesn't GET anymore Halloween than that!!"
For me this screams Edgar Allan Poe. Many fans on Facebook replied with Poe and the Insider said:
"A couple of you have the right idea! Where's Annabel Lee when you need her for a tiebreaker?"
Annabel Lee was Poe's final short story but the short story that comes to mind for me is "The Fall of the House of Usher" which has more of a zombie esque to it. Though there are many other gothic horror masters out there so we can't be certain. Also Insider states that it is *one* of the new houses which means we will be having more than one new house! We will keep you updating next week when more information is released next week!
