TRUTH: The works of prolific film producer and horror maven Jason Blum are returning once again to Halloween Horror Nights this year at both Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort. The creative leads at Universal have teamed up with the minds behind some of the most popular horror films in recent memory to create another sure-to-be-terrifying walk-though experience.

DARE: We dare you to enter the world of Horrors of Blumhouse when two separate mazes open on opposite coasts. Each park’s haunted house will encompass two unique takes on Blumhouse’s memorable movies. Universal Studios Hollywood will recreate “Truth or Dare” and “Unfriended,” while Universal Studios Florida will get “Happy Death Day” and “The First Purge.”


At Universal Studios Hollywood, “The Horrors of Blumhouse: Chapter Two” maze takes guests on a terrifying journey that begins at the entrance to a dilapidated movie theatre, where a compilation of horror films play out in real life. In Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare, guests will succumb to an ancient curse that has been unleashed by a group of unsuspecting college students….forcing them to play a game where the stakes are life and death. In Unfriended, guests become pawns to a supernatural entity that has invaded a chat room. Drawing inspiration from Blumhouse Productions’ infamous opening title sequence, the final feature will lure guests into a creepy old house to answer desperate cries of help…only to discover that they have actually entered a paranormal world where real-life nightmares threaten to trap them forever in misery. 

At Universal Orlando Resort, “The Horrors of Blumhouse” maze will bring guests face-to-face with the most gruesome scenes from the déjà vu thriller Happy Death Day, as well as from The First Purge, the newly-released prequel to The Purge series. In Happy Death Day, guests will be transported to the film’s college town, where they will be forced to relive the last day of a student’s life over and over again…until she breaks the murderous cycle. Then, in The First Purge, guests will run for their lives as menacing citizens from the film hunt them as part of the first barbaric government experiment where all crime is declared legal for 12 hours.

Halloween Horror Nights 2018 runs on select nights from September 14 through November 3 at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort. For more information on the event and for advance ticketing resources, be sure to visit the official Halloween Horror Nights website.
