Universal Orlando revives 'Dead Exposure' for Halloween Horror Nights

April 26, 2018, 11:02 AM · Universal Orlando today announced its second house for this year's Halloween Horror Nights — Dead Exposure: Patient Zero.

Universal's first house announcement was for the Netflix mega-hit Stranger Things, which also will appear at the HHN events in Hollywood and Singapore, but Orlando went with an original concept for this second reveal.

The first Dead Exposure house appeared 10 years ago, at 2008's Halloween Horror Nights. This time, the house will be set in 1982 Paris, in the middle of another zombie apocalypse. The good news? There's a vaccine! The bad news? It makes you kinda blind.

Keeping with the photography theme of the original house (that's the double-play on the "Exposure" in the title), this house will use strobe lighting to create photo-like scenes of the zombie attack surrounding you.

"You’ll be lost in the darkness as the undead hunt you," Universal announced in its press release. "An attack can come from anywhere. You don’t have to remember the original house, to understand this single truth: They will find you."

Lovely. Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights starts September 14, 2018 and runs for 34 nights through November 3.

This was by far one of the best houses I have ever experienced when it was part of HHN 10 years ago. The use of the flash of lights and then darkness was phenomenal. And the actors, using the darkness, could walk right up to your face and then “flash!” you’d see them and scream and run!
