September 20, 2011, 5:07 am
Don’t be afraid if you can’t be there for the opener. The scary collection of film-inspired exhibits at the Southern California theme park will be in place until Oct. 31.
“We’re really excited about this year’s event. The caliber of filmmakers and artists working with us adds to the event’s authenticity,” says John Murdy, creative director.
This year’s six horror mazes include the return of “Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses: In 3D ZombieVision.” Rocker Alice Cooper joins the fun with “Alice Cooper: Welcome To My Nightmare,” while director Eli Roth put together “Eli Roth’s Hostel: Hunting Season,” which features items from Roth’s personal collection of original “Hostel” movie props.
“La Llorona: Villa De Almas Perdidas” (“The Weeping Woman: Village of Lost Souls”) is from actor and director Diego Luna, who re-imagines the legend of melancholy and murder that he was told as a child. The other mazes are “The Thing: Assimilation” and “The Wolfman: The Curse of Talbot Hall.’
The new backlot experience, “Terror Tram: Scream 4 Your Life,” is based on the latest installment of Wes Craven’s “Scream” film series. “Scare Zones” and “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure” add to the nightmare theme.
“Halloween Horror Nights” are Sept. 23 and 24 plus Sept. 30-Oct. 1, Oct. 7-9, 14-16, 20-23 and 27-31. Tickets can be purchased at UniversalStudiosHollywood.com/hhn. Updates on “Halloween Horror Nights” are available at www.halloweenhorrornights.com/ and also on Twitter and Facebook.
