I think those who love gore are a subset of folks who enjoy professional haunts that cater to that genre. If you look at TransWorld's Halloween, the amount of gore and guts is overwhelming. They are the shock jocks of the Halloween world. They have thousands of attendees, so there is definitely an audience for what the vendors are selling. We're just not those kind of folks.I agree with most people on here in regards to the gore. I love the creepy aspects of Halloween.
I really don’t understand the interest in things that are realistically gory. When I see something that includes guts, blood, gore I just shake my head. I am not sure who this is really supposed to appeal to either.
We will watch people's videos of the shows, but never attend one. We are not their target audience.They cater to the haunt industry more than home haunters who think not traumatizing little kids is part of the goal. But, we're all for everyone enjoying what they enjoy, including those who think sawed in half people with their guts hanging out is what Halloween is all about. Then again, TransWorld's Halloween is also moving into Christmas decorations along with their Halloween fare. They are taking a Halloween tradition and letting Christmas creep into it more and more each year. So as far as we're concerned, they violate a sacred tenet not to dump Christmas right on top of Halloween. That more than any guts and gore is too awful for us to ever tolerate.
