halloween horror nights universal monsters

Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights is bringing its classic Universal Monsters (sorry, Dark Universe) to life with a new maze inspired by the 1943 film Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, and a new haunted house attraction, too.

Meanwhile, Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander is already trying to get on board the Universal monsters retooling with an idea for The Mummy reboot.
