‘Halloween’ to Return Again to Universal’s Horror Nights

June 8, 2022, 11:25 AM · If Halloween fans have learned anything over the years, it’s that you just can’t stop Michael Myers. And so it is that “Halloween” will return once again this year as a house at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights.

Universal today announced Michael Myers’ return to the after-hours, hard-ticket event at both Universal Studios Florida in Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood in California.

“On both coasts, this year's harrowing experiences will transport guests to the infamous town of Haddonfield, Ill. on Halloween night, when Michael Myers first donned his notorious mask to embark on his brutal rampage,” Universal Parks said in its press release. “As guests make their way through his dilapidated home and iconic scenes from the movie, they'll narrowly dodge attacks from the knife-wielding Myers as he stalks their every move.”

And here is the hype video:

“Halloween,” in its various forms, has become a HHN mainstay over the years, so we will have to see what Universal’s creative teams can do to make this franchise feel fresh this year. But the promotional synergy definitely will be there this fall, as Universal Pictures plans to release the final film in the latest trilogy, “Halloween Ends,” on October 14.

Halloween Horror Nights starts Friday, September 2 at Universal Orlando and Thursday, September 8 at Universal Studios Hollywood. Both events will run select nights through Monday, October 31.

A fitting IP since this is HHN 31 in Orlando (what date does Halloween fall on?).

Sucks for Hollywood since they just got Michael Myers last year. But that’s par for the course for that park as of late.

they could do this every year and I wouldn't get tired of it, but I have certainly gotten the sense I'm increasingly in the minority.

Universal Orlando dropped a pretty cryptic tweet referencing Stranger Things, which is almost assuredly to be used in this year's HHN or perhaps a semi-permanent attraction (maybe even at Epic Universe).

I could take or leave the Halloween franchise, but understand the continual use of the IP since it's fully owned by Universal.

Halloween never generated the best houses/mazes. There's only so much you can do with that masked maniac.
