Those brave enough will step right into each unsettling room of this brooding house that lives — even if all who dwell there are long dead. Guests will come face to face with the ghosts of the house, including The Tall Man, The Bent-Neck Lady, The Ghost in the Basement, and more… all leading up to the infamous Red Room.
Created, directed and executive-produced by Mike Flanagan (“Hush,” “Oculus,” “Gerald’s Game”) and executive produced by Trevor Macy via their Intrepid Pictures, the Netflix horror story follows the Crain family as they are haunted by long-dormant fears stemming from their time living in Hill House as children and forced to face the ghosts of its past.
“I have loved Halloween HorrorNights for so long,” said Flanagan. “Some of my favorite memories of Halloween were made at Universal Studios, screaming and laughing with my friends. It is such an honor to be included among such fantastic haunts, and I’m so glad that fans will be able to walk the halls of Hill House this Halloween. This is — without a doubt — one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to us at Intrepid. We are so excited to visit the Red Room again — we hope to see you all there!”
Reincarnated as a Halloween Horror Nights maze, Hill House will come to life as it beckons guests to set out on the harrowing journey experienced by the Crain family. Iconic scenes from throughout the series will be featured in the maze, including the omni-powerful Red Room — the “stomach” of Hill House — and the Hall of Statues, where deceptive powers overtake everyone who enters. Ghosts will be waiting around every corner, from William Hill, aka The Tall Man; The Ghost in the Basement, who crawls throughout the bowels of the House; and The Bent-Neck Lady, whose disturbing scream and appearance will keep you up at night.
“It’s a nightmare come true to bring Netflix’s ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ to life for our guests this year at Halloween Horror Nights,” said Charles Gray, senior show director for Entertainment Creative Development at Universal Orlando Resort. “The show brought true horror to the masses, similar to what we’ve provided our guests at this event for nearly 30 years — Hill House is a perfect fit for Halloween Horror Nights as it enters a new decade of fear.”
“Mike Flanagan has elevated the horror genre with his supernatural thriller, ‘The Haunting of Hill House,'” said John Murdy, executive producer of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. “We continuously challenge ourselves to raise the bar with each maze we create, and we look forward to creating a unique experience for our guests that combines both the psychological and visceral twists from the series. The goal is to make our guests feel as if they are walking in the footsteps of the Crain family, re-living all the horrors that they experienced.”
