Halloween Horror Nights Hollywood – We Went Behind the Scenes of “Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count”!

Halloween Horror Nights makes its return to Universal Studios this month in both Hollywood and Orlando, and Bloody Disgusting’s Vanessa Decker and Elwood Walker took an early tour of two of the most anticipated attractions in Hollywood. First up, a brand new CHUCKY maze inspired by the hit tv series & past installments of the iconic franchise.

Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count casts the killer doll as the star of his very own haunted house for the first time. A true sadistic killer, Chucky has been mired in the agony of disrespect he feels from his peers at not being taken seriously. Thus begins his quest to turn his haunted house into a living slaughterhouse by killing every person who enters.

Creative director John Murdy says that this is “the most ambitious house in Horror Nights history,” featuring over 17 different Chucky animatronics that can talk, run, and most importantly, kill. The original concept for the maze came from Don Mancini and is very meta as it continuously pokes fun at both the Halloween Horror Nights event itself, and the fans of Horror Nights as they are killed off one by one in Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count.

Just in time for the 100th anniversary of Universal Studios’ classic monster movie Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, the iconic monster & several others return to Halloween Horror Nights in Universal Monsters: Unmasked.

Lurking sixty feet beneath the bustling streets of the City of Lights, the dank Catacombs of Paris house a much darker secret. . . taking guests down into the infamous burial grounds where every corner and crevice overflows with millions of skeletal remains and even more sinister secrets. Deep within the Catacombs, Universal’s most notorious creatures – The Phantom of the Opera, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Dr. Jekyll and his deranged alternate personality Mr. Hyde, and Dr. Jack Griffin, aka The Invisible Man – also lie in wait as they bide their time and seek vengeance against guests after the opening of the Catacombs to public visitation.

The music for this maze was scored by legendary musician Slash!

The “Halloween Horror Nights” events begin on Friday, September 1st in Orlando and Thursday, September 7th in Hollywood – and both events run select nights through October 31. Select tickets and vacation packages are now on sale for “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Orlando Resort; tickets for the event at Universal Studios Hollywood will be available soon.

Due to popular demand, event nights are expected to sell out. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.
