Universal's U.S. theme parks and New Line Cinema have agreed to bring the legendary horror film series, Friday the 13th, "Nightmare on Elm Street" and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights events in Orlando and Hollywood.
Universal's legendary Halloween events have been horrifying guests for 17 years. Jason, Freddy Krueger and Leatherface have haunted horror fans and phobes alike for more than 25 years. This year - for the first time ever -- they come together to create the most extreme Halloween Horror Nights event in history.
Halloween Horror Nightss is the country's largest and most elaborate Halloween event. Universal's "scream team" of designers create a month-long fright-fest where guests are confronted with their most terrifying nightmares. Specially designed haunted houses, thrilling shows, inescapable scare zones, and hundreds of street performers invade Universal's theme parks on select nights throughout the months of October and November.
"Each year we take this incredible event to new levels," said Jim Timon, senior vice president of entertainment for Universal Parks & Resorts. "Our partnership with New Line gives us the opportunity to truly immerse our guests in the Halloween experience and put them face-to-face with characters they aren't used to seeing off the movie screen."
New Line's films and characters will be integrated into all aspects of Halloween Horror Night's creative content giving guests a chance to meet - or run from - Jason, Freddy and Leatherface in person.
