One of the most horrifying and wickedly gruesome shows in television history is bleeding off the screen and into your nightmares. American Horror Story is coming to Halloween Horror Nights. The hit TV series will be turned into a maze at both Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort at the popular annual Halloween event, incorporating elements from three different seasons. Not sure about you but I’m freaked out already!
Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 25 years, guests from around the world have visited “Halloween Horror Nights” in Orlando and Hollywood to become victims inside their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on anything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.
Three chapters of “American Horror Story” will haunt the nation’s best, most intense Halloween event in all-new frightening mazes. Season 1’s Murder House, Season 4’s Freak Show and Season 5’s Hotel will all be represented. Guests will embark on a terrifying journey to become the next doomed residents of Murder House from Installment 1, tortured performers in the disturbing and twisted Freak Show from Installment 4, and victims of the otherworldly, death-dealing Hotel from Installment 5.
“American Horror Story is one of the most disturbing television shows ever produced, and with such perverse storylines unfolding with each installment, Halloween Horror Nights is undoubtedly the only place that could create a living version of the nightmares that Ryan Murphy dreams up,” said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of Halloween Horror Nights. “Plus, as a fan favorite, American Horror Story has been the number one requested maze from our guests and we’re excited to let them know that we listened to them and are bringing American Horror Story to life.”
“American Horror Story is engaging for so many reasons, one of them being the fantastic way each installment of the series reveals completely new characters and stories for its viewers,” said Michael Aiello, Director of Entertainment Creative Development for Universal Orlando Resort. “It’s that constant evolution that makes this popular series a perfect fit for Halloween Horror Nights – and we can’t wait for our guests to experience some of the horror they’ve seen on the show.”
Halloween Horror Nights begins Friday, September 16 at both Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort.
