Horror fans have the opportunity to help decide which of three Scare Zones will be included in this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. Fans can vote beginning June 4th through June 18th for either the Corps, Mask-a-Raid or Ghoulz Scare Zone themes via Facebook. It’s the first time in Halloween Horror Nights history that fans have been allowed to influence the creation of a Scare Zone within the Halloween horror event.
The biggest vote-getter will be announced on June 19th.
“For years, Halloween Horror Nights fans have shared their thoughts on what they would like to see at the event. This year, we’re giving them a chance to participate in the creative process by voting for what they believe will be the scariest Scare Zone,” said John Murdy, Creative Director, Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of Halloween Horror Nights. “Our goal is to produce the most terrifying, most intense horror experience anywhere. The more scared the fans are, the louder they scream and the happier they are, so, to have them join us in this process is very rewarding.”
Details on the Three Scare Zones
Scare Zone, Option 1: Corps
“The War to End All Wars” has left a swathe of destruction through battle-torn France, and on French Street at Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights, World War I-era soldiers have returned from the dead. The constant artillery bombardment has turned the twisted network of trenches into a sprawling graveyard, and now “The Lost Generation” is rising from their muddy graves and coming home to haunt the streets of “old Paris.”
Scare Zone, Option 2: Mask-a-Raid
Masquerade Balls were a staple of the social calendar in pre-Revolutionary War France; a time for the members of the French aristocracy to misbehave behind the cover of elaborate, jeweled masks. But “mask-a-raiding” among the powdered and perfumed party-goers are members of a blood thirsty cannibal cult. Bon appétit!
Scare Zone, Option 3: Ghoulz
In 19th century France, restrictive laws and social norms prevented medical colleges from acquiring the one asset they need most – human cadavers. To solve this “body shortage crisis,” universities employed “unsavory characters” to do their dirty work and steal corpses from cemeteries in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, the grave robbers on Universal Studios Hollywood’s French Street have developed a morbid fascination with the dead – and a taste for human flesh.
