The US Universal amusement parks announced this Friday a new edition of its “Halloween Horror Nights”, this year with horror novelties that include a haunted house inspired by the upcoming film “The Exorcist: Believer” and another in honor of the evil doll “Chucky”.
This cycle of theme nights will begin on September 1 at the Universal Orlando Resort, in Florida, where it will run until November 4; while at Universal Studios Hollywood, in California, the season will take place between September 7 and October 31, according to a statement released this Friday.
These classic horror sessions, to be held on selected days, includes a total of ten haunted houses this year, among which are, in addition to those mentioned, others such as the new haunted mansion “Universal Monsters: Unmasked”, inspired by “Universal’s iconic legacy of movie monsters”, as the note points out.
The version of this house that will open in the Universal Studios Hollywood park will have as an addition an original score by Slash, guitarist of the emblematic group Guns N’ Roses.
For its part, the house “Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count” is based on the popular SYFY channel series and stars the ineffable “devil doll” Chucky, from the slasher film franchise that began in the 1980s.
The feature film “The Exorcist: Believer”, which will hit US theaters on October 13, as well as the successful series “Stranger Things” and “The Last of Us”, among others, will also have their homes in the next edition of “Halloween Horror Nights”, which are held for 32 years.
In addition to houses based on hits from the small and big screen, as every year this cycle also includes residences with original themes, such as “Dr. Oddfellow: Twisted Origins”, “Dueling Dragons: Choose Thy Fate”, ” YETI: Campground Kills”, “The Darkest Deal” and “Bloodmoon: Dark Offerings”.
It will also offer “five zones of fear”, as well as live entertainment shows and a menu of food and drinks according to the theme.
As reported this Friday, this cycle will take place over 48 selected nights in the case of Universal Orlando, a record number for this theme park.
