HOUSE ANNOUNCEMENT: ICONIC HORROR MOVIE “THE SHINING” TO COME TO LIFE AT HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS

It’s finally happening! It only took 27 years but it’s finally official. The Shining, one of the greatest horror movies ever created will be featured at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights in both Orlando and Hollywood.  According to the press release it sounds like they are going all out with the recreation of the Overlook Hotel, even bringing back those very, very memorable scenes. For those who may be unfamiliar with The Shining, please do yourself a favor and enjoy what is truly an iconic horror masterpiece. Going to have nightmares just thinking about this one. Video and press release after the break.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., ORLANDO, Fla. (May 19, 2017) – For the first time ever, the psychological  horror film, The Shining, will bring unspeakable terror to Halloween Horror Nights in terrifying new mazes opening at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort, beginning this September.

The twisted minds behind the nation’s best, most intense Halloween events will bring every gruesome moment and paranormal haunting that fans have seen in the film to life in original, disturbingly authentic mazes.

“The Shining” maze at Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights will provide guests with a unique opportunity to relive some of the film’s most iconic, and sinister, moments.  While venturing through the eerie Overlook Hotel, guests will be thrust into the hotel’s tragic history of murder and madness, bearing witness to caretaker Jack Torrance’s spiraling descent into insanity. Nightmarish visions will come to life in this macabre maze, overwhelming guests with the “shine” of the murderous, ghostly entities that lurk around every turn – all while trying to escape the wrath of Jack Torrance as he violently succumbs to the hotel’s paranormal forces.

The Shining has been regarded as “a masterpiece of modern horror” by critics and fans alike. Directed by Stanley Kubrick, the film’s enormous influence on pop culture has been captured throughout a multitude of films, television shows, music and more since its disturbing debut in 1980.

Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood and Orlando to become victims inside their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on everything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.

Additional details about Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” will be revealed soon. For more information about Halloween Horror Nights at either Universal Studios Hollywood or Universal Orlando Resort, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.

    so this year we will have nine haunted houses, five brand new scare zones, new roaming hordes maybe, new icon maybe all your times will come soon and a skeleton design with candles appears now, and two shows.
