At San Diego Comic Con International 2015, Guillermo del Toro announced that there would be a Crimson Peak maze for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. It has since been revealed that Focus Features and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are teaming with Universal Studios in both Hollywood and Orlando to create all-new mazes based on the Insidious film franchise. And now Universal Studios has announced that Halloween will come home this year at HHN.
Universal Studios Hollywood has announced the newest maze addition to their Halloween Horror Nights lineup, based on the cult-classic horror film franchise Halloween. The terrifying Michael Myers will scare guests at this year’s Horrow Nights.
Comes Home! Guests will have the sensation of stepping through the silver screen directly into unsettling and shocking film scenes as they navigate their way through Haddonfield, adorned in classic Halloween décor on a similar Halloween night in 1963. Meyer’s abandoned family home and its blood-splattered walls, where the violent murder took place, will set the stage for a new crime scene as guests attempt to evade the relentless killer–armed with his signature bloodstained knife.
