Universal Studios Hollywood unleashed the terror last week when they announced that four of the most terrifying names in the horror movie genre will be coming together at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights: Freddy Krueger. Jason Voorhees. Leatherface. Michael Myers. The silver screen serial killers will make up a trio of all-new slasher-themed mazes at the event.
Here’s details on the mazes…
Freddy vs. Jason
Demented killer Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street) returns to the scene of the crime, this time accompanied by notorious hockey mask killer Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th) to inflict twice as much terror. Inspired by New Line Cinema’s 2003 film that brought together the biggest horror icons in history, this new experiential maze thrusts guests into an epic battle in which the fate of only one killer will survive.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Blood Brothers
Based on Tobe Hooper’s original film, the maze will pit guests against the unsavory wrath of the demented killer, Leatherface, and his mentally unhinged brother, Chop Top. They unite in misery to expand the family’s cannibalistic enterprise and slaughter a new generation of innocent victims. With the perverse duo at the helm of a grotesque BBQ restaurant staged inside a dilapidated roadside gas station, unwitting guests will soon realize that new terror awaits as the blood brothers continue their hedonistic prey on human flesh.
Halloween: Hell Comes to Haddonfield
Escaped mental patient Michael Myers makes a homecoming return in an all-new maze inspired by the second film in the classic “Halloween” horror franchise. Echoing the infamous words uttered by the film’s Dr. Sam Loomis, “You can’t kill the Boogeyman,” the twisted maze will shed new light on the terrifying lunacy of Michael Myers as he scours the streets of Haddonfield and stalks the halls of Haddonfield Memorial Hospital in ruthless pursuit of his victims.
Halloween Horror Nights kicks off this year at Universal Studios Hollywood on Friday, September 16, 2016.
