Everyone is entitled to one good scare...and beginning September 19, Universal Orlando will give guests more than one reason to scream as it brings to life John Carpenter's classic horror film Halloween.
Based on the classic 1978 slasher film, the all-new haunted house follows the story of Michael Myers, a deranged boy from Haddonfield, Il. It is Halloween night and no one is safe as the psychotic killer embarks on a murderous rampage. With his iconic mask to hide his identity, Michael sets out for new blood and will stop at nothing as he stalks his victims. Every scene tells the tale of a different kill and if you're not careful, you could be next.
Halloween is one of the most successful horror franchises of all time and has grossed a collected $366 million worldwide. Since the original Halloween film, nine additional Halloween sequels have been created. This year, the franchise will commemorate its worldwide success with the release of a box set with all ten Michael Myers films in full Blu-ray on Sept. 23, featuring never-before-seen and behind the scenes content.
Here's what Michael Aiello, Director of Entertainment - Creative Development, Universal Orlando Resort
"My experience watching this film growing up is as vivid now as it was years ago. The team and I are beyond thrilled to bring one of the most iconic horror films and characters to life at Halloween Horror Nights. Halloween, began what would become the slasher film genre and still represents the genre as its horrific crown jewel. Guests will come face to face with Michael Myers as we recreate the kills committed on the night He came home."
