It is a 80s theme with a nod to Slasher films, and cult type of movies.So.... Did they forget they had an 80s theme or?
Exactly, a Marketing mis step. I get how they are say it is 80's but yet have some IP's that are not. But also towards last steps A&D got the IP "US", to use which took over a 80s cultish "ToothFairy" style house. Rob Zombie I see as both 80s & cultish especially since my favorite move is "HOUSE OF 100 CORPSES" ,Having slashers and cult films is fine, but they proudly announced that the theme was going to be set in the 80s again. And the 80s has a lot you can work with, without going to house of 1000 corpses or zombieland. Not to mention their non-IP houses and scarezones.
I realize not everything will match that theme of the 80s, and that's fine. It's just from what we know so far, besides Stranger Things, Killer Klowns, and Ghostbusters, not much else is set in or from the 80s.
They could have just said they wanted to go with a cult film theme, instead of mentioning the 80s at all.
Here’s a short clip of the Vanity Ball - a runway of botched plastic surgery patients! Before this, the emcee announced that they were serving “ripped dick and bleeding genital realness”! 😱🤪It's a VAYNE thing
