The attraction is timed with the release of all of the series’ 10 films as a box set on Blu-ray on Sept. 23, complete with new footage.
The first “Halloween,” directed by John Carpenter, debuted in 1978, and revolves around Michael Myers, a deranged boy from Haddonfield, Illinois, who grows up to become a mask-wearing psychotic killer and stalks his victims on Halloween.
The 10 films in the “Halloween” series have grossed $366 million worldwide.
“My experience watching this film growing up is as vivid now as it was years ago,” said Michael Aiello, director of entertainment — creative development, Universal Orlando Resort. “The team and I are beyond thrilled to bring one of the most iconic horror films and characters to life at ‘Halloween Horror Nights.’ ‘Halloween,’ began what would become the slasher film genre and still represents the genre as its horrific crown jewel. Guests will come face to face with Michael Myers as we recreate the kills committed on the night he came home.”
“Halloween Horror Nights” will also feature mazes based on AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” Robert Rodriguez’s TV series “From Dusk Till Dawn,” the sci-fi franchise “AVP: Alien vs. Predator,” Universal’s upcoming film “Dracula: Untold,” the studio’s “The Purge: Anarchy,” and SyFy’s “Face Off –- In the Flesh.”
