Universal’s U.S. theme parks and New Line Cinema have agreed to bring the legendary horror film series, “Friday the 13th,” “Nightmare on Elm Street” and “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” to Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights events in Orlando and Hollywood.
Universal’s legendary Halloween events have been horrifying guests for 17 years. Jason, Freddy Krueger and Leatherface have haunted horror fans and phobes alike for more than 25 years. This year – for the first time ever -- they come together to create the most extreme Halloween Horror Nights event in history.
Halloween Horror Nights is the country’s largest and most elaborate Halloween event. Universal’s “scream team” of designers create a month-long fright-fest where guests are confronted with their most terrifying nightmares. Specially designed haunted houses, thrilling shows, inescapable scare zones, and hundreds of street performers invade Universal’s theme parks on select nights throughout the months of October and November.
Read the press release from Universal Studios.
I can't wait!. I'm planning my trip to go the first week in october. Can't help but wonder if they'll add Mary Shaw from dead silence, rumor had it that there may be a Dead Silence haunted house this year. I found her to be more creepy than the storyteller.
This looks like a New Line promotion - New Line Cinema (The house that Freddy Built) owns the rights to the 3 mentioned above. Michael Myers and Halloween are a Dimension property so would be tricky to deal with additonal rights negotiations.
Anyway here is the link to the Horror nights website that will keep updating with new info in the next few weeks on these 3 horror film greats.
