HAUNTED ATTRACTIONS IN A CANCEL CULTURE

 

Welcome back to another episode of HH365! Today, we must talk about something going on in our very odd society, The "Cancel Culture". 

It really is the time for people to be offended over anything and everything. Some are important steps for growth but when we start talking about pieces of plastic being cancelled over gender is really where I like to draw a line. Anyway, I do not like to get political ever, but with Haunted Attractions, I believe it is only a matter of time until this Culture fires shots at our beloved Halloween Activities. 

With all the focus on what bothers people just makes me look at a Haunt. Some people are bothered by the violent images and acts at a Haunt. How much longer do we have? Will we stay safe from this new way of thought?  You can see it in Horror movies in the last five to ten years. Sure, we have some good ones but the old "Slasher Gorefests" has been thrown to the wayside. I enjoy the "Smart Horror" but I think its safe to say that Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers as we knew them may be over. 

This is not an article to complain about it but changes may be coming our way and I will be interested to see what is in store for our favorite Haunted Attractions in the coming years. I really hope that the Haunts can keep the creative license that they have now. 

This is really a wait and see type of deal. I know 2020 was full of Haunt complaining because of the restrictions. Because you know, The whole world is dealing with a Pandemic but people had to wait an extra hour to get into a Haunt. This year from a fan aspect was the worst I have ever seen. The all out attack on most Haunted Attractions through polls, social media and so on was incredibly horrible and not needed. It was almost as if everyone took their suffering of being caged up for months out on all of the Haunts. It was nuts and I really hope that 2021 is a brand new year. 

That is all we have for you today at HH365! Where Every Day Is Haunt Season!
