It’s in the air, it’s beginning to creep through your skin. You only have a month left until it begins, and there’s no guarantee you’ll survive. Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida is exactly a month away,  and this year promises to be the biggest,  most terrifying yet.


This year Universal Orlando has a total of eight houses (currently only seven announced) and four (so far) scare zones that offers a very eclectic mix of nightmare creatures, movie maniacs and of course zombies. The event will also feature to unique shows as well as your favorite Universal attractions.
Here’s what guests can expect at this year’s event.

Alien vs. Predator- The classic battle is back between two forces from space. While it will take the name of the film, guests can expect an original story, as they are taken through Weiland Industries and come fave to face with these fearsome creatures
Dollhouse of the Damned- A demented little girl who grew up in a morgue uses the dead as her playthings in this original house from Universal Creative

Giggles and Gore Inc- This Universal Creative Original house shows us that evil clowns aren’t born, they are created. Some clowns are too evil to be set free for too long

There is still one house left to announce,  which should take shape sometime very soon. It is said to be like looking at pure evil.

Street Experience

This year Universal is bringing a huge mix of original content and properties to the streets, and setting the monsters free.

SyFy’s Face Off- Monsters from the show will be roaming the streets in search of victims. The show takes special effects make up artists and pits them against each other to create some of the Most gruesome creatures ever seen
The Purge:Anarchy- Guests will be caught up in the annual bloodbath where there are now laws, no boundaries and no help against those who wish to Purge
Bayou of Blood- A Voodoo Priestess, mindless zombies,  and black magic will litter the streets and try to put you under it’s spell

This year, two fan favorites are returning.  It just wouldn’t be Halloween without Bill and Ted. We’re not sure what antics the duo will get into this year, but the film is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary. We’re expecting a most excellent adventure.
Also returning is the Rocky Horror Picture Show-Tribute. The show boasts live singing and many of your favorite scenes from the cult classic film.
