In what seems like a complete no-brainer of an announcement, Universal Studios announced today that there will be a The Wolfman attraction at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights!
Check out the press release below, which details a new film competition and a new partnership between Halloween Horror Nights and the Chiller Channel. Look for The Wolfman in theatres on November 6th.
From the Press Release:
Chiller and Universal Studios Hollywood are partnering to recognize the nation’s top short-form filmmaking horror genre talent with the “Halloween Horror Nights-Chiller Scary Good Film Competition,” offering filmmakers an opportunity to have their scariest short film rewarded with a broadcast on Chiller of their work, a $1,000 cash prize, and a trip for two to the October 2 opening night of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Contest entries will be accepted from July 1, 2009, through August 21, 2009.
Prospective filmmakers are invited to submit short films of 90 seconds to three minutes in length on DVD (two copies of each film must be submitted). Selected films will be judged by a panel of horror industry professionals. Criteria will be storytelling skill, originality, and the degree of the “good scare.” The top 10 shorts will be posted online at HalloweenHorrorNights.com/Chiller from September 8-24 for public voting.
The winning “Scary Good” film will be announced on September 25. In addition to the prize and the Chiller broadcast of the film, the winning filmmaker will be honored in front of celebrities, studio executives, and media at the October 2 Chiller-Eyegore Awards ceremony, which will kick off the annual Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Entries should be sent to Halloween Horror Nights-Chiller Scary Good Film Competition, 100 Universal City Plaza, Building 5511, Universal City, CA 91608. Additional information on the contest, including a complete list of rules and regulations, is available online at the website above.
This year Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights will present all-new “live” experiences based on one of the all-time biggest box-office horror franchises, “Saw”, per an agreement among Universal Studios Theme Parks, Lionsgate, and Twisted Pictures, and on “The Wolfman” per an agreement with Universal Pictures. All-new mazes, all-new scare zones, and new shows will be featured.
