Horror Maze Gets the Blumhouse Treatment

Both Universal Studios theme parks in Hollywood and Orlando try to outdo themselves every Halloween with unique mazes and immersive attractions for the undaunted horror thrill seeker.

This year it was announced all four Insidious movies would be included in a terrifying maze, and today comes the announcement that Jason Blum’s universe will be added in the annual “Halloween Horror Nights” which starts Friday, September 15.

“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.”

His breakout hits The Purge and Sinister are included in the Orlando maze. In Hollywood, his upcoming release Happy Death Day will also get featured in what they are calling a “living trailer.”

According to Universal, guests will find themselves trying to survive through these mazes of horror and come face-to-face with some of the scariest characters to reign over the genre in decades.

“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.”

Blum is also ecstatic to merge the creations of his mind with those of the FX wizards at Universal Studios.

“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.”

Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood and Orlando to become victims inside their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.
