Two new original scare zones are coming to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood: Curse of Chucky, based on the upcoming sixth installment in the Child’s Play series, and The Purge: Survive the Night, based on the 2013 Universal film, The Purge.
In the Curse of Chucky scare zone, based on the direct-to-DVD and Blu-ray feature coming out on October 8, 2013, the tiny red-headed doll possessed with the spirit of a notorious serial killer will come to life to shock and horrify guests.
For The Purge: Survive the Night, theme park guests will enter the world of The Purge, where for one night all crime is legal – including murder – and no one is safe. Attendees will then run for their lives while experiencing some of the most memorable and terrorizing sequences from the film.
Universal’s The Purge, starring Ethan Hawke (Sinister, Insidious, Training Day) and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), also makes its DVD and Blu-ray debut on October 8, 2013.
This Fall, the theme park’s famed Halloween Horror Nights will feature an all-new original horror-themed 3D maze called Black Sabbath: 13 3D based on the legendary band Black Sabbath’s music and lyyrics that will also include scenes inspired by their latest album, 13. This year’s event will also include The Walking Dead: No Safe Haven, based on the hit AMC television show; Evil Dead: Book of the Dead, inspired by Sony’s remake of the cult classic film; and Insidious: Into The Further, based on the 2010 horror thriller Insidious and its upcoming sequel Insidious: Chapter 2, as well as other soon-to-be announced themes for various scare zones, rides, haunted houses, and live entertainment.
Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights, a special multi-night ticketed event, will premiere on September 20, 2013 and run on select dates through November 2, 2013.
