As anyone who's visited Detroit recently can attest, the city needs help. One enterprising developer has an idea that could bring hundreds, if not thousands, of jobs to the area... along with a horde of zombies.
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.
Next to getting loaded at costume parties, the best part of Halloween is the haunted attractions, and Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights has long been king of the mountain. Every year creative director John Murdy and his team have consistently topped themselves, and their 2011 park boasts a record number of mazes: The Thing: Assimilation, Alice Cooper: Welcome to My Nightmare, Hostel: Hunting Season, The Wolfman: The Curse of Talbot Hall, the Mexican folklore themed La Llorona: Villa de Almas Perdidas, and the grand return of Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses.
Halloween is quickly approaching, and with it all our favorite amusement parks are pulling out all the stops to be as creepy and frightening as possible. Now Universal Orlando has thrown their hat into the ring with the return of their Halloween Horror Nights 21, and I've got to tell you, Lady Luck has never looked so…bad. Just downright nasty.
We told you a few days ago about the fiendish folks over at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights digging deep into Mexican folklore as the inspiration for their newest maze, La Llorona: Villa De Almas Perdidas (Village of Lost Souls). And now we have some exclusive first-look concept art you won't find anywhere else!
Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood has already enlisted the devious minds of Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper and Eli Roth to design horror-themed mazes for this year's festivities. They’ve now dug deep into Mexican folklore for the inspiration for their newest maze, La Llorona: Villa De Almas Perdidas (Village of Lost Souls).
