Just yesterday we told you that Universal Studios’ premier Halloween Horror Nights event, beginning September 20, 2013, had added both Curse of Chucky and The Purge to the list of scare zones. Next up, the best one yet.
How about a scare zone based on John Landis’ classic 1981 An American Werewolf in London?! Too bad it will only be at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights 23…
Beginning September 20, guests will step inside the film and experience a retelling of the horror classic – from the attack on the English moors to the hospital nightmares to witnessing the bone-crunching transformation of David from human to bloodthirsty werewolf. Guests will encounter David’s vicious werewolf form as he wreaks bloody chaos through London’s subway tunnel, Piccadilly Circus and more.
“It’s terrific that guests will be able to actually experience some of the scarier scenes from the film. I had fun working with the Universal team to bring one of my more insane movies to life,” said Landis
“An American Werewolf in London is a must-see for any true horror fan,” adds Mike Aiello, Creative Director for Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights. “The haunted maze mirrors John Landis’ horrifying story and having him work with us in the creative process was really the only way this could authentically come to life.”
The iconic film follows two American college students, Jack and David, as they backpack across the moors of England. On a misty, full-moon night, the men are attacked by a supernatural creature that kills Jack and taints David with its horrific curse. When the full moon rises again, the killing spree continues, and this time, the blood is on David’s hands.
