Cinematic Horror icons are taking over the Halloween Horror Nights events, returning to Universal Studios Hollywood and debuting in Universal Orlando Resort.
On the heels of last year’s successful “Universal Monsters” experience, Universal Studios Hollywood will introduce an all-new horrifying maze, “Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man,” that delves deeper into the Universal Monsters’ lore. Loosely based on Universal’s 1943 horror movie of the same name (starring Bela Lugosi as a mute Frankenstein’s Monster and Lon Chaney Jr. as The Wolf Man), this reimagined tale for the 21st Century takes guests on a terrifying journey that bears witness to a deadly confrontation between these two horror icons and the epic battle that rages between them. Guests will follow in the footsteps of the Frankenstein Monster, lured by exotic music towards a nearby gypsy camp while desperately seeking sanctuary from a mob of angry villagers determined to destroy him. It is within the gypsy encampment that the Frankenstein Monster meets The Wolf Man and where the madness begins as guests are led along a path of destruction through the murky Moors, to a creepy cemetery and into the smoldering ruins of Castle Frankenstein and its icy cellars beneath.
Once again, GRAMMY® Award-winning musician, SLASH, long hailed as one of the best electric guitar players of all time, will collaborate with Universal Studios Hollywood to compose an original score for the maze. Witness the rise of the undead that begins this fall at Universal Studios Hollywood in the Hollywood-exclusive promotional video.
On the east coast, “Universal Monsters” makes its terrifying debut at Universal Orlando Resort. At Universal Orlando Resort, guests will be hunted by every single grisly monster from the anthology, including Dracula, The Wolf Man and Frankenstein’s Monster, in the all-new experience, “Universal Monsters”. Each sinister environment will bleed from one to the next as guests press through the darkened realms of horrifying creatures. Guests will face bloody terrors in Dracula’s castle and flee from what is behind the cryptic howls of the grim forest. They’ll run from the horrifying manmade monster within Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, and fall prey to an ancient Egyptian curse as they are pursued by the evil Mummy. Guests will try to escape the mysterious Creature lurking in the Black Lagoon or become victims of other horrors waiting in the shadows. Witness the terror that is coming to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort in this promotional video.
“Halloween Horror Nights” begins Friday, September 6 in Orlando and on Friday, September 13 in Hollywood. Additional details about the events will be revealed soon.
