When it comes to horror, Eli Roth knows his stuff. He’s the director of the Hostel series, and has an eye for the macabre. Now he’s taking his filmmaking prowess to the small screen for his first commercial, and he’s cutting his teeth on the spot for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.
Watch-Go behind the scenes and see the extended HHN commercial!
The new spot features all your favorites in a contemporary setting. We see tons of glimpses of characters from the Shining, American Horror Story and Saw.
“I first got involved with ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ as a fan – I felt that I was in a horror movie and I didn’t want it to end,” said Roth. “For this spot, I wanted to pay homage to these brilliant and scary films, and yet put my own spin on it.”
In addition to the main characters, we see glimpses of others in the commercial as well. Could we be seeing characters from the event popping up? From a character dressed in a sugar skull costume from a day of the dead celebration, to Papa Legba, there’s characters all around the new commercial.
We also can’t help but notice vampires, and figures that resemble those from the Blair Witch. Could we be seeing hints at something that hasn’t been announced yet?
The terror kicks off on September 15th on select nights, and tickets are now in sale!
