Universal Studios is planning to announce at Comic-Con today that AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and the video game Silent Hill that spawned a movie franshise will be two of the featured themed attractions at the 2012 Halloween Horror Nights events.
Deadline reports that the Silent Hill attraction will mark the first time Universal has chosen a video game as the source intellectual property for one of its horror attractions — and it will promote the release of the next installment of the video game “Silent Hill: Book Of Memories” as well as the release of Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, which hits theaters October 26 via Open Road.
Halloween Horror Nights is a monthlong event every year at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Orlando — they work with the best in the biz to create entertaining, horrifying Halloween experiences that are wildly popular. The seasonal events feature a series of themed creepy haunted mazes. In the past, themes have included horror movie staples like Scream, The Thing, Saw, Friday The 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare On Elm Street, House of 1,000 Corpses and Hostel.
