Thanks to films like Sinister, The Purge, and Insidious, Blumhouse Productions has become one of the biggest movie production companies in the world of horror, with many more films on the way. To celebrate the fears and frights they've concocted, Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights will debut all-new mazes in both Hollywood, CA and Orlando, FL.
Based on The Purge, Sinister and Insidious franchises, as well as the upcoming thriller Happy Death Day, Blumhouse Productions (Split, Get Out, Whiplash ), is teaming with the creative minds behind the nation's most intense and immersive Halloween event to unleash three twisted Blumhouse films in one bone-chilling experience at each Halloween destination.
At Universal Studios Hollywood, legions of terrified guests will come face-to-face with the most iconic and unnerving moments from the blockbuster The Purge franchise, Sinister movies and soon-to-be released Happy Death Day. In The Purge, guests will attempt to survive the night as they are immersed in the film's depraved world, where all crime is declared legal as part of the government's annually sanctioned 12-hour Purge. In what can be described as a living trailer for Happy Death Day, guests will experience a deja-vu scenario as they are forced to relive the last day of their lives over and over again in an attempt to escape a masked killer. The final nightmare will unmask itself in Sinister, where guests will encounter an ancient pagan deity who is determined to trap them in the sordid shadow world of the dead…for all eternity.
"It's a privilege to collaborate with Jason Blum and his team at Blumhouse Productions to create 'The Horrors of Blumhouse,'" said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of "Halloween Horror Nights." "The decisive, inventive way in which he interprets underlying issues plaguing today's society into his films provides us with a plethora of content to create truly captivating, one-of-a-kind modern horror experiences for our guests."
Upon entering "The Horrors of Blumhouse" maze at Universal Orlando Resort, guests will attempt to survive three of the most menacing anthologies in the Blumhouse assemblage. First, guests will face the horror of becoming stars in the next home murder movie of the menacing demon Bughuul, from the infamous Sinister franchise. Then, they'll run for their lives to escape the gang of bloodthirsty home invaders from the first installment of The Purge saga. Finally, guests will be thrust into the Further from the Insidious legend, where they'll come face-to-face with the paralyzing Lipstick-Face Demon from Chapter 1 and witness Dr. Elise Rainier's own personal hauntings from her nightmarish childhood in a first-look at Insidious: Chapter 4 – in theaters January 5, 2018.
"We're thrilled to bring the terrifying vision of Jason Blum and the Blumhouse Productions team to life on an even grander scale at Halloween Horror Nights 2017," said Charles Gray, Show Director for Creative Development, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort. "He is the modern voice of horror, whose films run the gamut of intense, in-your-face terror – and this year, we're taking our guests deeper into the horrific world of Blumhouse than ever before."
"We are so excited to expand our collaboration with the terrific creative team at 'Halloween Horror Nights' this year," commented Blum. "With 'The Horrors of Blumhouse' maze, people will be able to fully immerse themselves into the cinematic worlds of our most terrifying films – with bone-chilling results."
