Trick r Treat Halloween Horror Nights

Last year, director Michael Dougherty‘s 2007 Halloween classic Trick ‘r Treat served as the inspiration for one of the scare zones at Halloween Horror Nights in Universal Studios Orlando. That apparently went over so well that this year the movie is being adapted into all-new mazes, both in the Florida park and across the country at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Trick ‘r Treat is timeless in its obsession with classic traditions, and bringing those ideas to Halloween Horror Nights is an inspired idea. It should be a lot of fun for horror fans to stumble across the film’s gruesome kill scenes in person, not to mention the possibility of interacting with Sam, the film’s masked mascot who makes sure the holiday’s traditions are honored.

Here’s the poster for this year’s event:

And here’s the official press release with everything we know so far:

ORLANDO, Fla., UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (May 16, 2018) – Beginning September 14Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood will bring Legendary Pictures’ cult Halloween classic Trick ‘r Treat to life in all-new Halloween Horror Nights mazes that dare guests to live by the rules or suffer the consequences.

Based on the critically-acclaimed and fan-favorite movie, directed by Michael Dougherty, the “Trick ‘r Treat” maze will transport guests to Warren Valley, Ohio on Halloween night to celebrate the holiday’s dark traditions. Recreating some of the anthology’s most iconic scenes, the disturbing new maze invites brave thrill-seekers to become entwined within the secrets of this sleepy suburban town.

Guests will experience some of the film’s most grisly scenes and encounter hauntingly familiar characters. They will meander through Mr. Kreeg’s infamous house, watch as college students viciously transform into bloodthirsty werewolves and dismember the town, as well as come face-to-face with Sam – the spirit of Halloween – who readies to punish those who break the holiday’s tradition.
