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 to be based on John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic Halloween, featuring the return of Michael Myers.
From the official press release: Halloween is one of the most popular horror films of all time and to many fans, spawned the most-feared antagonist in horror movie history – Michael Myers. As the franchise’s latest trilogy concludes with Universal Pictures’ release of Halloween Ends on October 14, guests will venture back to where it all began in “Halloween” – eerily authentic haunted houses that depict the most chilling moments from the critically-acclaimed original film.
On both coasts, this year’s harrowing experiences will transport guests to the infamous town of Haddonfield, Ill. on Halloween night, when Michael Myers first donned his notorious mask to embark on his brutal rampage. As guests make their way through his dilapidated home and iconic scenes from the movie, they’ll narrowly dodge attacks from the knife-wielding Myers as he stalks their every move. Myers is the embodiment of pure evil who unleashes terror at every turn, and guests will quickly realize that he will stop at nothing and no one to take his bloody revenge.
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 once they are announced. Tickets are available here.
