Saw at Halloween Horror Nights, Universal Studios Hollywood

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood offers a world class entertainment thrill for those seeking more than just putting on a costume and playing trick or treat.

Universal City--Four new maze experiences, four new “scare zones,” a new “Terror Tram” backlot experience, a “Rocky Horror Picture Show: A Tribute” and a new “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure” production, and the re-imagining of Halloween Horror Nights for 2009 at Universal Studios Hollywood,  is now complete, setting the stage for the most intense and impactful “live” horror event ever to be presented in a theme park environment.

Halloween Horror Nights, Southern California ’s most terrifying Halloween event, features a 16-night run. New “Halloween Horror Nights” attractions will include “Saw: Game Over,” a “live” maze experience based on the “Saw” film franchise, per an agreement among Universal Studios Theme Parks, Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures. The interactive maze, “Halloween: The Life and Crimes of Michael Myers,” per an agreement reached between the theme park and Compass International Pictures. will be the first attraction based upon the “Halloween” films to be created by a U.S. theme park. The “live” multi-sensory horror experience, “My Bloody Valentine: Be Mine 4 Ever,” per an agreement between the theme park and LionsgateĀ®, the leading next generation studio, will be based on the 2009 theatrical re-make of the original 1981 Canadian slasher classic and will be the most lifelike representation of film horror ever created for a Halloween maze attraction. “Chucky’s Fun House” will be a fresh, flesh-and-blood incarnation of one of Universal’s most iconic horror franchises, and a more intense, interactive horror experience will be realized on the new “Terror Tram: Live or Die” walk-through attraction on the historic Universal backlot.

The “Rocky Horror Picture Show: A Tribute,” bringing the mayhem of the classic horror spoof to life on-screen and on-stage with live performers singing and dancing in the celebrated, outrageous “Rocky Horror” costumes, will also be part of the Halloween Horror Nights event, per an agreement between the theme park and Twentieth Century Fox’s Licensing & Merchandising Division. An all-new “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure” show will also be featured within the event.

New “scare zones” will include a live staging of the 2004 Universal cult hit, “Shaun of the Dead,” a “Welcome to Hell!” where the seven deadly sins are punished by stilt walking demons whose torments are punctuated by dramatic fire effects. In the “The Meat Market,” fog will roll across rotting, maggot-infested animal carcasses and the whirling blades of the butchers’ chainsaws will be the only noise loud enough to drown out the sound of buzzing flies. In the final “scare zone,” “Freakz,” the denizens of and old carnival Freak Show will have developed a taste for human flesh.

“Halloween Horror Nights” continues on consecutive weekends and selected weekday nights beginning on Friday, October 2 through Halloween, Saturday, October 31. Event dates are: October 2-3, 9-11, 15-18, 23-25, 28-31. The event will begin nightly at 7:00 p.m.; closing hours vary by night throughout the event.  Tickets are on sale at UniversalStudiosHollywood.com
