The Horrors of Blumhouse will be returning to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, bringing to life in all-new mazes at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, beginning Friday, September 14.
Partnering with the creative minds at Blumhouse Productions for the 2nd year in a row, Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort will each feature a “best-of” compilation maze, including some of the most popular, horrific scenes from the Blumhouse catalog; which will be different for each coast.
At Universal Studios Hollywood, “The Horrors of Blumhouse: Chapter Two” will feature the films Unfriended and Truth or Dare. Guests will enter the maze through a dilapidated movie theatre, where a compilation of horror films play out in real life. In 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 of life and death. In Unfriended, guests become pawns to a supernatural entity that has invaded an online chat room. Drawing inspiration from Blumhouse Productions’ opening title sequence, the final scenes will lure guests into a creepy old house, 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 feature Happy Death Day and The First Purge. 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. In The First Purge, guests will run for their lives as menacing citizens from the film hunt them as part of the first official purge, where all crime is declared legal for 12 hours by the government.
Founded by Jason Blum, Blumhouse Productions has released some of the past decade’s most popular Horror films, grossing over 3 billion dollars worldwide; dating back to 2009’s Paranormal Activity. Other movies from the catalog include Ouija, Split, The Visit, Get Out, and the Insidious series. In 2014, the company signed a 10-year first-look deal with Universal Pictures.
