Every year, Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) includes a house featuring an icon of classic horror. For example, last year, we had the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. This year, Michael Myers will fulfill that role. The Halloween movie franchise will be the theme of an HHN house in Florida and California. Though many expected a different intellectual property to be announced before this one, NBCUniversal continues with synergy. They continue to combine theme parks and TV/movie media.
The house is supposedly to be built around the events of the more recent “Halloween Kills” movie. That movie leads to the next one “Halloween Ends” which gets released October 14th, 2022
As Universal theme parks media tells us: “Halloween is one of the most popular horror films of all time and to many fans, spawned the most-feared antagonist in horror movie history – Michael Myers.” Universal informs us that guests will venture back to where it all began in “Halloween” – eerily authentic haunted houses that depict the most chilling moments from the critically-acclaimed original film.
This house will be featured on both coasts. Universal says this year’s harrowing experiences will transport guests to the infamous town of Haddonfield, Ill. on Halloween night, when Michael Myers first donned his notorious mask to embark on his brutal rampage. We are told to prepare for the iconic dilapidated home and signature scenes from the movie. Based on Universal’s description, we should expect lots of jump scares. Guests should practice their dodging skills as the knife-wielding Myers could be around any corner in this house. Michael Myers is seen in the movies as the embodiment of pure evil who unleashes terror at every turn. Universal says that guests will quickly realize that he will stop at nothing and no one to take his bloody revenge.
The Halloween motif has appeared at HHNs many times before. The classic horror icon first seen in John Carpenter’s classic 1978 original Halloween movie still provides solid terror. Guests should look forward to seeing how the genius skills of HHN staff take the latest versions of the Halloween films to create a frightful HHN experience. HHN begins in Florida on September 2nd. HHN begins in California on September 8th. The spooky season is growing closer every day. We wish you luck facing Michael Myers at this year’s HHN.
