Here's the backstory of the theme: "The Director" has been officially banned from the Universal backlot due to his warped, demented horror films. So he goes solo, taking over the lot to stage his own Halloween Horror Nights production.
The Director's work will be found all over the theme park and studio backlot, where guests will for the first time be allowed off the trams, to wander zombie-filled mazes placed among the studio's most notable film sets, including the Psycho house and War of the Worlds airplane crash.
Look for tweaks on some of the parks other attractions, too, as the WaterWorld show becomes "Slaughter World" and Jurassic Park is darkened.
More information, including tickets and backstory details, is available on Universal's official Halloween Horror Nights website.
