Too bad I won’t be in town to check it out, but Universal Studios’s Halloween Horror Nights will now have a maze based on Drew Godddard’s high concept slasher The Cabin in the Woods.

We are building the cabin completely. You’re going to walk through a forest to get there. You’re going into the cabin. You’re going to go into the cube cells. We’re literally taking everything we can in the film and giving you a kind of best-of montage of the film with this kind of linking story,” Goddard tells Zap2it. “You’re going to be in the control room when merman attacks.

A new storyline that parallels the one in Cabin in the Woods will be introduced in the Halloween maze, as well as a plethora of monsters.

We’re trying to adapt this film as best as we physically can in the context of what we have. The whole idea of the maze is to have varying creatures in it,” Universal Orlando Entertainment Team member Michael Aiello says. “In the maze, we’ve got many that were in the forefront of a lot of the scenes — the ballerina, the Sugarplum Fairy, the Hell Lord — but also too there are a couple rooms where we’re kind of featuring some of the creatures that were just on the screens in the control room of movie.

And then in the finale we’ve got a couple characters that could open up from Halloweens past, our own events, because we were granted amazing permission to be able to include some of our lineage into Cabin’s lineage,” he adds in regards to how the maze will conclude.

Goddard adds, “Our finale for the maze is something that we want guests to be surrounded by. There are so many amazing characters in the movie, we really wanted to end it with trying to surround the guests with as many guests as possible.

    for a second i thought this was saying there was going to be a CABIN sequel (even though that would have been impossible considering how the movie ended) and i got excited! lol. maybe a prequel would be cool?

      A prequel would be cool, new antagonist and mythology. But the ending would have to be stellar since we know what most horror prequels have in common.

    Last year I ended up going to Halloween Horror Nights in LA. I was so pumped for the event all year as I’ve never been to it. Even spent over $100 on Front of the Line pass. Silent Hill, TCM, Alice Cooper and The Walking Dead sounded awesome.

    The whole event was a disappointment for me. People waiting hours in line for 5 minute mazes (luckily we had front of the line pass). There was a ton of immature teens running around like little babies and screaming out loud. One person ran right into us at full speed running away from a monster. All the monsters would get an inch away from your face which I just found more annoying and less scary. The mazes were nothing special for as much of a fan as I am of Walking Dead, Silent Hill and TCM.

    Overall, it’s a good event for the youngsters who are easily scared. If you’ve been to a million haunted houses like me, this one is worth passing. “Delusion” is where it’s at. Cabin in the Woods maze? How about Evil Dead instead.

    I just have to go to this now. No questions asked.

    compared to all of the other themes and HHN events, does this film really deserve to be held in such high regards? I know im in the minority as I did not think this film was all that great. This is the End blew it away.
