Get ready to run for your lives in Universal's Slaughter Sinema

June 21, 2018, 11:19 AM · The 1980s theme continues for this fall's Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando, with today's announcement of an original IP house inspired by grindhouse horror flicks.

Slaughter Sinema will throw werewolf bikers, deadly barbers, alien cannibals, and a ravenous swamp yeti at visitors as they try to escape from a series of old-school, B-movie horror scenes. From Universal's press release:

"It's showtime at the local drive-in. As you approach, you’ll see movie trailers of what you're about to witness, filling you with dread as you make your way inside. The smell of popcorn will be first to hit your senses as you find yourself in a movie theater snack bar. But from there, it's all downhill for this double-feature."

And here's the hype video:

Universal Orlando announced earlier this month that this year's Halloween Horror Nights will be its biggest ever, with 10 houses. This is the fourth house announced, following houses based on the Netflix hit Stranger Things, as well as the Legendary Pictures film Trick 'r Treat, and an original IP house reviving the Dead Exposure concept from 2008's HHN.

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida starts September 14 and runs for 34 nights through November 3. Tickets are on sale now at Universal's website.

I love the whole 80's horror theme they are going for. Can't wait to see how this house handles these b movie tropes.
