Tonight the evils of Universal Orlando break free from their shackles for the debut of Halloween Horror Nights 2015.
It is the 25th year for the country’s most popular Halloween event and for that milestone the theme park has brought back many fan favorite fiends from the past, led by the most infamous of them all: Jack the Clown.
This week, Universal held a technical preview of the event for employees and their guests and we were there to capture the madness as it took hold of the park.
Five scare zones have taken over the Studios streets, featuring familiar faces of icons of the past along with famous movie baddies and original creations. Take a walk through it all in the video below.
