'Evil Dead' joins the maze line-up for 2013's Halloween Horror Nights on both coasts

Universal's Halloween Horror Nights will bring Evil Dead to Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood this fall. This spring's remake of the 1981 horror classic earned good reviews from critics (62% on Rotten Tomatoes) and more than $50 million at the box office to date, making it one of the more successful horror remakes of all time.

From Universal's press release describing the maze that will be based on the film:

"Guests will be transported into the film and face off against a demonic evil that will stop at nothing to consume them. It begins when a mysterious passage from an ancient book is read, releasing an unearthly force of darkness. A pack of violently possessed victims, including the film’s starring character 'Mia,' wreaks brutal carnage throughout the mazes – and guests must make their best attempt to escape."

Here's Universal's teaser video for the collaboration:

If it was based off of the original movies I'd be doing cartwheels right now, but the sorta reboot does nothing for me.

Spot on Phil B, re-boots are kinda bad anyway but this one tried to cram both Evil Dead 1 & 2 into the one film, still how bad can they ruin a maze??
