Just because we’re in the middle of the hot summer months doesn’t mean it’s too early to start making your Halloween plans. Universal Studios announced they’re bringing the world of Silent Hill alive during their annual Halloween Horror Nights events at both Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood. Both theme parks will feature a haunted maze inspired by the video game franchise.
“Silent Hill has terrified fans for over a decade by pioneering psychological horror genre first through video games and moving into films and graphic novels,” said Careen Yapp, Vice President Acquisitions and Franchise Development of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “Now we’re giving fans the next evolution of terror as we work with the Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights teams to create a real world Silent Hill experience just as terrifying as the fans have come to expect.”
“We can’t wait to watch our guests actually walk into the hell that is Silent Hill,” added Jim Timon, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at Universal Orlando Resort.
In case you’re not familiar with Silent Hill, here’s the official synopsis: “Konami’s ground-breaking Silent Hill series is heralded for its psychologically-charged, horrific plot, which is centered around the disturbing, ash-covered town of Silent Hill – a place where reality gives way to other dimensions. In this demonic world the physical laws of nature no longer apply and nightmarish monsters abound. Characters try to escape back to the safety of reality but constant brutal attacks by disjointed, knife-wielding beings make survival seem impossible.”
The second Silent Hill movie, Silent Hill: Revelation, opens in theaters on October 26, 2012.
