I really hope that Universal Studios Orlando will have this, as I probably (read definitely) won’t be able to attend the Halloween Horror Nights event in Hollywood. Sounds like, in addition to the already announced haunted maze based on Saw, the “scarezone” based on Shaun of the Dead, and the Rocky Horror Picture Show musical show, Universal Studios Hollywood, as part of their Halloween Horror Nights, will also be featuring a haunted maze featuring my FAVORITE slasher, Michael Myers!
The official press release:
Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Halloween Horror Nights,” beginning a 16-night run on October 2, will present an all-new “live” attraction based on the classic horror/slasher film franchise, “Halloween” and the film series’ murderous antagonist, Michael Myers, per an agreement reached between the theme park and Compass International Pictures.
“Halloween: The Life and Crimes of Michael Myers,” an interactive horror walk-through experience, will be the first attraction based upon the “Halloween” films to be created by a U.S. theme park. A replica of Michael Myers’ house will be constructed for the attraction and his most memorable atrocities will be brought to life.
Larry Kurzweil, President and Chief Operating Officer, Universal Studios Hollywood, said: “The addition of the classic ‘Halloween’ film franchise to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights event underscores our intent to break new creative ground with outstanding horror icons and raise the intensity level of our Halloween experience. This year’s Halloween Horror Nights will be the most impactful live horror event ever to be presented in a theme park environment.”
Malek Akkad, President of Trancas International Films, and producer of the new “Halloween II”, due in theaters August 28th, said: “We are thrilled to bring the classic Halloween icon, Michael Myers, to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights this year. It will be a great treat for fans to experience “Halloween” in the haunted house setting that Universal does best.”
Can’t wait! Please make it happen in Orlando, Universal!
