Universal is just rolling out the classics!
In what seems like an unprecedented move, Universal released today that we will get a SECOND classic horror film to grace us this Halloween season in the all-new Haunted maze: The Exorcist. For the first time ever, supernatural thriller, The Exorcist, will take possession of “Halloween Horror Nights” in all-new horrifying mazes opening at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort beginning this September.
The Exorcist is truly a horror staple. The twisted minds behind the nation’s best, most intense Halloween events will bring to life one of the scariest and most nightmare-inducing horror films in history. So many movies have been held up to the bar this movie set back in 1973 and yet it still continues to horrify viewers to this day. How will they pull off a movie that almost entirely takes place in a single room? I’m not sure I but I would hedge a bet that a spinning tunnel would be involved.
At Universal Orlando Resort, guests will see, hear, feel – and even smell – every iconic levitating, head-spinning, vomit-wrenching, skin-crawling moment from the film. They’ll be paralyzed with fear as they witness the power of the supernatural, scream uncontrollably as they become part of Regan MacNeil’s possession and run in terror as they try to escape the horrific battle between innocence and evil.
Universal Studios Hollywood’s “The Exorcist” maze will resonate as a real life interpretation of the demonic film, daring “Halloween Horror Nights’” guests to live the nightmare experienced by a tortured Regan and her determined mother. The maze will recreate some of the film’s most haunting scenes, ushering guests into its unparalleled terror as if their very souls were possessed by the devil.
The Exorcist is not new to HHN as it was done as a single room in Museum of Horrors: Unnatural History (located in Sound Stage 22) back in ’98 and Regan even showed up at the very first event Universal’s Fright nights. It only makes sense the property finally gets the full treatment on both coasts. We’re excited. Universal is too. Check out Mike’s personal write up on the house.
Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited “Halloween Horror Nights” in Orlando and Hollywood to become victims inside their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on anything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.
Additional details about Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” will be revealed soon. For more information about Halloween Horror Nights at either Universal Orlando Resort or Universal Studios Hollywood, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.
