Nope, fall isn't in the air yet, but you can almost feel the chill (or at least less humidity) and hear the faint screams of the terrified souls as they challenge Halloween Horror Nights 24. Universal Studios Florida already announced the fact that the Walking Dead will return with an all-new haunted house and that there will be a scare zone themed to SyFy's Face Off. Now, the latest reveal has spilled the secrets of another scare zone: The Purge: Anarchy.
This scare zone is themed to a new Universal movie that's a follow-up to last year's hit. Just any anything goes in the movie, with no police protection, the scare zone will immerse guests in a free-for-all of terror. Click the video accompanying this article to see the movie trailer.
"Halloween Horror Nights is about taking guests out of their comfort zones and placing them at the core of unimaginable horror," John Murdy, Universal Studios Hollywood’s Creative Director for and Executive Producer of Halloween Horror Nights, explains. "Because the premise of ‘The Purge’ could theoretically happen, our scare-zone elevates that sense of fear and forces you to really watch your back. Imagining how your neighbor, friend or enemy could take revenge on you without retribution because you wronged them takes horror to a whole new level, and we wanted to bring that gut-wrenching terror to every one of our guests."
The scare zone will be quite expansive, taking up virtually all of the Hollywood back lot area. "The chaos that reigns in the film will be replicated nightly, but now our guests can actually attempt to survive the night themselves," says Michael Aiello, Director of Entertainment – Creative Development, Universal Orlando Resort. "The familiar emergency broadcast will be heard announcing the commencement of the annual Purge, and all hell will literally break loose."
