Oh my stars and garters. This news is giving us chills. Everyone is all goo goo over Comic Con but not us! Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood is OUR Comic Con. The first maze has been announced and lets just say, bring a flashlight. Read on for the news.
“It’s not a game. It’s not a movie.” That is the tagline for the first maze at this years HHN. Any guesses? Oh what the hell, coming this year to HHN is SILENT HILL!
No word yet on which game in the Silent Hill franchise the maze will focus on but if we know anything about creative director John Murdy(and we do!) It’s that all of the games will be included in this maze in some way shape or form.
UPDATE:Official Press Release
Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights events have a more than 20-year history of creating incredibly entertaining, horrifying Halloween experiences that are consistently rated the nation’s best. The events on each coast feature highly-themed, disturbingly real, haunted mazes based on everything from film to nightmares — and streets filled with hundreds of specially trained “scareactors.”
“Silent Hill has terrified fans for over a decade by pioneering psychological horror genre first through video games and moving into films and graphic novels,” said Careen Yapp, Vice President Acquisitions and Franchise Development of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “Now we’re giving fans the next evolution of terror as we work with the Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights teams to create a real world Silent Hill experience just as terrifying as the fans have come to expect.”
“We are thrilled to be working with our friends at Universal to bring the horror of Silent Hill to this next level of reality,” said film producer Samuel Hadida. “For newcomers and long time followers alike, there could be no better introduction to the terror that will await them in theatres on October 26 when we launch SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D onto the world.”
“This is our first partnership with a video game property and we are very excited to create an unparalleled, all-new level of horror for our guests,” said Jim Timon, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at Universal Orlando Resort. “We can’t wait to watch our guests actually walk into the hell that is Silent Hill.”
“Creating a realistic three-dimensional world based on the disturbing Silent Hill video games and films elevates Halloween Horror Nights to the next generation of twisted entertainment. Its incredibly imaginative and highly unsettling characters and environments make it the ideal fit for our event where the property can continue its reign of terror and fully immerse guests in its psychological horror,” said John Murdy, Creative Director for Universal Studios Hollywood.
