#HHN27: ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ Joins Universal Halloween Horror Nights 2017

Universal Studios theme parks continue to unveil the horror franchises to be featured at the upcoming season of Halloween Horror Nights, today announcing the addition of one of the Starz original series Ash vs Evil Dead, coming to both the Orlando and Hollywood parks

On the official website, HHN’s Patrick Braillard explains, “I am thrilled to announce that Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights is partnering with the Starz original series Ash vs Evil Dead this haunt season. As fans of the series (and of course the earlier films), all of us on the Creative team have been waiting years to bring this title to Halloween Horror Nights.

“When developing a new haunt experience based on one of your favorite movies/shows/etc., different challenges may arise. Creatively as a team, we want to give you, the fans, the best experience possible while still embracing the authenticity to the movie/show. I feel that this house lives up to the stories found within the Ash vs Evil Dead series, and isn’t that what every fan wants to say? 

“We’re going to take you, regardless of your awareness of the show or the characters, and throw you into the loud, brash, and very bloody world of Ash. There are Deadites to kill and evil to stop, let’s get to it. 

“The house will feature various locations from the first two seasons of Ash vs Evil Dead and lots of blood. And for those “in the know,” the answer is yes…We’ll be going back to the cabin; with a few other surprises along the way. 

“This is our blood-soaked, milk-eyed, crass, rock n’ roll amped, chainsaw-wielding felt puppet, love-letter to everyone and everything connected to Ash vs Evil Dead.”

It was previously announced that American Horror Story is coming to Orlando with characters from three of the anthology show’s seasons, Asylum (Season 2), Coven (Season 3), and last year’s Roanoke (Season 6), and a different Roanoke-specific maze is coming Hollywood, as well as The Shining at both parks..
