Eli Roth Helming New Terror Tram at Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights

Eli Roth is bringing the scares to Universal Studios Hollywood.

The horror director and his digital network Crypt TV will take the helm of Universal Studio’s infamous “Terror Tram” — part of the park’s popular annual “Halloween Horror Nights.” The attraction opens Friday, September 16, 2016.

Eli Roth Presents Terror Tram” will expose guests to the fabled legacy of serial killer clown “Hollywood Harry” — a former jovial celebrity clown turn depraved murderer, and the minefield of carnage he left behind.

“I’m thrilled to be part of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ again,” said Roth. “We wanted to completely fabricate an original story that brings together our absolute freakiest, scariest most disturbing ideas. The ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ team is the best in the business. Their production and execution is unmatched and I know this ‘Terror Tram’ experience will blow away all expectations, and haunt guests for the rest of their lives. ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ is the must-see event for any horror movie fan — it’s like the Super Bowl for scary movies, and is my favorite event of the year.”

Killer clowns have seen a resurgence in pop culture lately. A big-screen remake of Stephen King’s “It” is in the works featuring Pennywise the Clown. A murderous clown was also included on Season 4 of “American Horror Story: Freak Show.”

In fact, “American Horror Story” will also be part of this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.
