If you've ever been to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights Texas Chainsaw Massacre haunt, you know one thing - it's one of the most insanely gory and sickest good times you could ever have. This year it looks to be even more badass!
Sure it's great to have The Walking Dead and Alice Cooper at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights, but we've always felt classic creatures such as the Frankenstein Monster, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and of course Dracula got short-changed. Not anymore.
The infection is spreading. They are everywhere. Our cities, suburbs, movie theatres, book stores, cable companies, and now our amusement parks have been overrun with walkers, and you know what? We couldn't be happier!
The badass haunted Halloween attraction known as Knott's Scary Farm is about to give us some sugar, baby! It sounds as if the Deadites will be out in full force this year, and we couldn't be more tickled!
When it comes to adding a bit more mayhem to an already maniacal situation, who better to turn to than Penn & Teller? That's exactly what Universal has done for its Orlando Halloween Horror Nights event, and we have your details right here!
One of last year's best mazes at Universal's annual Halloween Horror Nights spectacular was no doubt La Llorona! Well, you cannot keep a good ghoul down, and we've just received word that the eater of children will be back for more!
Those of you familiar with Sinister Pointe are already excited just from reading that headline. For you poor souls unfamiliar with the haunted attraction, read on, and we'll tell you what's so cool about April 21st's Dark Market.
Live in the Los Angeles area and looking for a fun way to ring in Halloween? Besides getting drunk and puking in your costume? Well, Dread Central has hit up the majority of this year's haunts, and we offer this handy little weekend guide to all things spooky!
We at Dread Central are certified haunted house junkies, and we've covered an awful lot of 'em, but there's been a lot of buzz in the L.A. area about one attraction in particular: Delusion - a unique hybrid between a haunted maze and interactive play that promises something completely different from the norm. And they're not kidding around.
In Southern California’s vast array of seasonal attractions, the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride is slowly becoming one of our favorite Halloween traditions. Now in their third year, the creators have stepped things up once again with this demented tractor ride that takes visitors on a twenty-minute onslaught through the darkest areas of Griffith Park.
The appeal of a Halloween attraction in one of the world's most famous haunted locations was just too good to pass up so Dread Central hit the road for Long Beach in our annual Southern California spook house quest. The Queen Mary has long been host to a variety of ghost-themed events, but they pulled out the big guns last year with their first annual Dark Harbor attraction. Now they're back for Round Two with five mazes and two scare zones that stretch inside and out of the infamous cruise ship.
It's that time of year again. Halloween is just around the corner, which means you'll be able to find a haunted house, hayride or haberdashery on every corner. But one haunted attraction seems to stand out more than all the others. Based on 100,000 square feet of mayhem, the Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse experience is one you won't soon forget.
John Murdy Discusses Halloween Horror Night's The Thing: Assimilation Maze and Breaks Down 'The Art of the Scare' For Dread Central
As creative director for Universal Studios and Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights' producer, John Murdy knows a thing or two about giving a good scare. Since 2006 he's been concocting some of the most immersive and thrilling haunted attractions in the country, with this year's crop of frights continuing his Legacy of Fear. 2011 not only marks the return of Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses in 3D maze but also celebrates several new mazes this year including Hostel: Hunting Season, The Wolfman: The Curse of Talbot Hall (which takes over the House of Horrors each night), Alice Cooper: Welcome to My Nightmare, La Llorona: Villa de Almas Perdidas and The Thing: Assimilation.
Knott's Scary Farm, the granddaddy of all Halloween theme parks, is back again for the 39th year to bring healthy scares to thrill-seekers looking for a fun evening, and we have just a taste of the terrors that lie in wait for you!
Oh, Halloween Horror Nights. How we love you. Every year Universal Studios and creative director John Murdy bring together some of the best filmmakers, FX artists and production designers in Hollywood to create the most authentic horror movie experience you’ll have in the flesh. Ever since my first trip to the grand opening ceremony in 2006, it’s remained the most anticipated night of the year, and its creators have consistently topped themselves every time. After watching Corey Feldman cheerfully ham it up at the annual Eyegore Awards (coverage here and here), we wasted no time hitting the fog-drenched park to check out the sights, sounds and smells of Horror Nights 2011, which boasted more mazes and scare zones than ever before.
