Get ready to Trick 'r Treat at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

May 16, 2018, 10:08 AM · What is Halloween without a Trick 'r Treat?

Fans visiting this year's Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood won't have to find out, because Universal is bringing the Legendary Pictures franchise to this year's event.

Universal first used the franchise at its Orlando event last year, but as a wonderfully detailed scare zone. This year, it gets the full treatment as a house in Orlando and maze in Hollywood. (Yeah, we've talked before about how the two resorts use different terms for the same type of experience.) From Universal's press release:

Based on the critically-acclaimed and fan-favorite movie directed by Michael Dougherty, the "Trick 'r Treat" [maze/house] will transport guests to Warren Valley, Ohio on Halloween night to celebrate the holiday’s dark traditions. Recreating some of the anthology's most iconic scenes, the disturbing new maze invites brave thrill-seekers to become entwined within the secrets of this sleepy suburban town.

[Guests] will meander through Mr. Kreeg's infamous house, watch as college students viciously transform into bloodthirsty werewolves and dismember the town, as well as come face-to-face with Sam – the spirit of Halloween – who readies to punish those who break the holiday's tradition.

And the hype video:

Universal previously announced the Netflix hit Stranger Things for Orlando, Hollywood, and Singapore this year, and a revival of the Dead Exposure original house for Orlando. Tickets are on sale now for the Orlando event, which kicks off September 14 and runs for 34 nights through November 3. No dates or tickets yet for the Hollywood event.

All I want is a David S. Pumpkins house.

If the last special hadn't bombed, I suspect that DSP could have been the Bill and Ted replacement. Alas.

It's the middle of May and we have to read about Halloween? Which HHN are they talking about, HHN2019? (and you darn kids can get off my lawn!)
