    The third bride from the left has got to be the scariest!

    I personally think Constance lowers the bar in the fear factor(not that I would want to be on the ride in front of her alone.) I like the ominous disposition of all the previous brides telling eerie stories without words. Also what bothers me is that when you pass by Constance, you see her projected flat on the mannequin.

      It's pure CAMP.

      This was an ernest attempt to bring the bride into the 21st century and raiser the creepy factor. But the darn effect is just so dumb! It's the same as those bad student horror films that take themselves too seriously, you laugh and it's campy.

      Speaking of student film, check out my film project on indiegogo.com! It's a film that is deliberately campy and shamelessly chessy! You'll love it! :End Plug:

        Exactly! Any of the previous brides were terrifying, in my opinion, due to the fact that they just stared at you not saying a word and being literally stone-faced.

          Goes to show you that simple is sometimes better.

            changing the bride from what it once was takes a bit of the creepiness of the character. The old Bride had a dark face with glowing red eyes. It almost made her look demonic. while her heart beats ominously through the attic. It gives you one last chill before entering the light-hearted section of the ride. The New bride has a more human face and speaks. We know that she was at least human once and retains some human qualities making her less unknown. what scares us the most is the unknown and the old bride gives that off. If someone never knew about the story of the bride there imagination can create their own version of it. Constance is given a back story and doesn't leave much to the imagination as the old bride did.

            the second to the left has got to be the most creepiest. just think of sleeping one night and waking up to find a dark figure in the corner with those glowing round eyes staring blankly at you. I just shudder at the thought.

I think what they need to do to make it work is have her completely fade out between lines and have the lighting change to briefly show that it is just the dummy, then have her fade back in to show the ghost manifesting itself in front of you. They may need to move her back a few feet so you can get a longer view though.
                Thanks for pointing this out. I've wondered what effect they're going for since the lack of any relief features such as eyes and nose like on the other character projections (both Leotas and the singing busts) is completely missing.

                  Good god!

                  The bride we have now looks so stupid compared to the previous brides. Seeing cool/creepy brides on the left, then we see the modern herp derp version. Hahaha!

                  WHAT A JOKE!

                  Please Disneyland, bring back the previous bride!
