The final intellectual property house for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at both Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood has been announced and it’s a real screamer – The Horrors of Blumhouse! This unique maze will be based on some of the Blumhouse Productions movies, including The Purge, Sinister, and Insidious franchises, as well as the upcoming Happy Death Day.
At Universal Orlando, the house will focus on Sinister, Insidious, and The Purge. Universal describes the house as follows:
Upon entering “The Horrors of Blumhouse” maze at Universal Orlando Resort, guests will attempt to survive three of the most menacing anthologies in the Blumhouse assemblage. First, guests will face the horror of becoming stars in the next home murder movie of the menacing demon Bughuul, from the infamous Sinister franchise. Then, they’ll run for their lives to escape the gang of bloodthirsty home invaders from the first installment of The Purge saga. Finally, guests will be thrust into the Further from the Insidious legend, where they’ll come face-to-face with the paralyzing Lipstick-Face Demon from Chapter 1 and witness Dr. Elise Rainier’s own personal hauntings from her nightmarish childhood in a first-look at Insidious: Chapter 4 – in theaters January 5, 2018.
At Universal Studios Hollywood, the house will focus solely on The Purge, Happy Death Day, and Sinister due to the fact that Insidious will be used as a standalone maze. Universal describes the house as follows:
In The Purge, guests will attempt to survive the night as they are immersed in the film’s depraved world, where all crime is declared legal as part of the government’s annually sanctioned 12-hour Purge. In what can be described as a living trailer for Happy Death Day, guests will experience a deja-vu scenario as they are forced to relive the last day of their lives over and over again in an attempt to escape a masked killer. The final nightmare will unmask itself in Sinister, where guests will encounter an ancient pagan deity who is determined to trap them in the sordid shadow world of the dead…for all eternity.
Both houses will open with Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood on September 15!
