Blumhouse’s ‘Freaky’ and ‘The Black Phone’ Stalk Universal Halloween Horror Nights 2022

Halloween Horror Nights will return to Universal Studios theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood this year, and a new haunted house for 2022 has just been announced, as “The Horrors of Blumhouse” will bring the films Freaky and The Black Phone to life on both coasts.

From the official press release: Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights features a double dose of terror inspired by the company regarded as the driving force in horror with “The Horrors of Blumhouse” haunted houses, which bring to life Blumhouse’s upcoming supernatural thriller The Black Phone and horror-comedy Freaky. 

“The Horrors of Blumhouse” will transport guests into an alternate dimension where the scares are real and the stakes are life or death.

In The Black Phone, which hits theatres June 24, “The Grabber” is a demented magician best known for his sinister trick of making people disappear – permanently. Guests will find themselves trapped in his “fun” house where the sound of ghostly voices whisper hints on how to escape, but guests must tread carefully to outwit and outrun “The Grabber’s” twisted magic.

Freaky will challenge guests to outrun serial killer “The Butcher” who has switched bodies with a high school girl after being cursed by The La Dola Dagger, an ancient Aztec blade. Guests will learn firsthand that looks can be deceiving as they encounter the sweet-looking teen who is actually “The Butcher” – and she is determined to hunt for their next victims.

You can watch the official announcement video below.

Halloween Horror Nights 2022 will run on select nights from Sept. 2 through Oct. 31 at Universal Studios Orlando Resort, and on select nights from Sept. 8 through Oct. 31 at Universal Studios Hollywood. Tickets are available here.
