Rob Zombie returns to Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

August 14, 2019, 11:58 AM · We now know the final house to complete the line-up for Universal's Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando this year — Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses. And a maze based on the property is coming to Hollywood's event, too.

Inspired by the 2003 Lionsgate production, the mazes will recreate Captain Spaulding's Museum of Monsters and Madmen from the film. From Universal's press release: "Populated by the degenerate victims of Dr. Satan’s debauched operations, legions of tortured creatures shuffle about as Dr. Satan continues his twisted medical practice, eagerly awaiting a new installment of victims."

Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses originally appeared at Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights event in 2000, when the movie was in production. It returned to that event in 2010 and 2011, though this year will be its first appearance in Orlando (correct me if I am wrong), where Zombie this year is pulling double duty with the Hellbilly Deluxe scarezone, too.

In addition to House of 1000 Corpses, this year's Halloween Horror Nights houses at Universal Studios Florida will include Jordan Peele's Us, Ghostbusters, Stranger Things, Universal Monsters, and Killer Klowns from Outer Space, plus four original productions: Graveyard Games, Yeti: Terror of the Yukon, Nightingales: Blood Pit, and Depths of Fear.

At Universal Studios Hollywood, this year's mazes will be Us, Creepshow, Stranger Things, Ghostbusters, Holidayz in Hell, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, and the year-round Walking Dead Attraction. There's still one more maze reveal to come in Hollywood.

I feel like this could be the origin story of Disney's Haunted Mansion... though we lost one ghost somewhere along the way.

Like it! I would have liked to have experienced this one. Universal still haven't redeemed themselves, though, with a very diluted roster of houses this year. Hopefully they will get this 80's obsession out of their system for next year and return to the HORROR part of Halloween Horror Nights.

Can't wait its gonna be a great year. I think overall there's a good balance of houses and I'm glad we don't have another "Blum" house with multiple movies in it. The Monsters house might be a bit like that but I love the classic monsters so I don't care :)
